#178 - Ryan Fry - Entrepreneur, Venture Capitalist, Motivational Coach, Author, and International Speaker
In nearly 22 years as a top network marketing leader, I have built massive international sales organizations within four, billion-dollar companies and my teams have generated over 250,000+ customers producing in excess of $500 million in lifetime sales. Incredibly, out of the 195 countries on the planet, I have traveled to 44 of them promoting the benefits of direct sales, healthy living, time freedom and financial independence. I have been interviewed nationally and internationally by multiple media outlets. In 2018, I was featured by: The Chicago Evening Post, Viralizers, The Boston Globe, MLM Worldwide, The Miami Herald, 4Conservative.com, the Daily Telescope, BusinessForHome.org, CEO World Trade Magazine, Topix, The Network Journal, UniversoMLM, MLMSuccesSecret.com, Successful IBO, San Bernardino Today, 4Entertainment.com and The Star Tribune. In 2021, I was featured on FOX, NBC & CBS News for the publishing of my book, Breakthrough Success with Ry Fry.  My family is my motivation. They keep me grounded, they challenge me and they fuel the fire within me.  I have a strong, confident, and beautiful woman by my side. I couldn't be more grateful for her loving and nurturing soul.  I also have 7 amazing kids that make my world go round. Creating memories with them is what I live for.  INSECURE LEADERS ARE THE DOWNFALL OF EVERY TEAM.Ry Fry(https://ryfry.com/)
