Adam Ryan is a former 9th-grade government teacher originally from Columbia, Missouri, who had the opportunity via the Lance Armstrong Foundation to come to Austin, Texas which was supporting a non-profit charity he was working with. He was working for free before taking a leap into the world of media marketing and began working for Spiceworks, a B2B media platform mainly focusing on IT where he sold advertising. When working at Spiceworks began to lose its luster, Adam soon left to work with Under Armour where he worked to assist in making major acquisitions that involved familiar names such as MapMyFitness and MyFitnessPal.
It was not long before Adam ran into a high school friend who launched a daily email soon known as The Hustle that soon caught his attention. Finding that he enjoyed the content, Adam began to talk to the founder of The Hustle and was soon brought on board to moonlight in selling advertisements for the business. During his honeymoon a couple of months later, Adam would soon tell his newlywed wife that he was taking another major leap of faith to work at The Hustle.
In taking the plunge, Adam would soon contribute to the major successes of The Hustle in addition to soon becoming the President of the company. Tune in on this episode to hear about Adam Ryan’s grind in finding work that he truly loved through making heavy decisions, Knucklehead wisdom from having to adapt in challenging work environments, and with a cameo by his pet dogs Alfie and Stella!
