2000 Percent Raise

Dec 12 2022 • 42 mins

Ryan Rottman is an actor, producer, visionary, entrepreneur, and close friend to John. He joins #2000PercentRaise to share his first business venture, OSDB, a “one-stop shop for all things sports”.

Ryan’s business partners include his friend, future HOF quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and Nate Raabe, an astute businessman. John is the first investor in OSDB (Online Sports Database).

Topics covered in this interview:

  • Ryan’s life as an LA socialite, an actor (featured in the popular Hallmark movie, A Christmas Wonderland and new season premiere of My Southern Family Christmas) among many others.
  • Being “an unintended victim” of Kevin Spacey’s career-ending decisions (which ended up thwarting a huge acting opportunity for Ryan).
  • The positive impact in the gay community that resulted in part from Ryan’s role in the first gay marriage on TV in 90210.
  • Overview of IMDb, which is “one-stop shopping” for those in the entertainment industry–and bringing that concept to the sports world with his company, OSDB (Online Sports Database) to get a rounded glimpse of an athlete.
  • Ryan being “a great connector” and John being inspired by those circles of trust that Ryan builds.
