💬 When I reached out to Ryan, my wife and I realized we had a bunch of plans for the future, but we were lacking a clear structure on how to make them a reality.
Since I had never done this before, I was curious to learn Ryan's approach. From the first meeting, Ryan was super-clear on the objectives of our sessions and the process that we would go through together was always available to respond to any question no matter how ridiculous, and always had real-life examples to help us see things that may look complicated from a way more manageable and usable perspective.
Since working with Ryan, and from the first session, I felt more in control of my relationship with money. This was and still is a feeling that as time passes keeps increasing. Ryan is amazing at making you realize how with a proper process and the right state of mind, you can really visualize where you want to be in the future, and also streamline your present so you can focus on being creative, positive, and focused.
Just after a couple of sessions, I had all my payments, savings, and investments 100% streamlined. It's been one of the most rewarding actions that I have taken in recent years. You can tell, from seeing how things start moving that you are definitely moving in the right direction.
I would say that with the improvements made with the help of Ryan, I'm able to save and invest 30% more money per year. It's so easy to see now where all the money was going and how to re-route it so it works for me, instead of me working for it. These changes have also impacted positively my relationship with my spouse, as now we are fully synchronized on our common and personal goals and plans.
Ryan is such a nice person to work with. From the get-go, you can tell he is not your typical financial advisor, but someone who really wants to help you understand what you need to take full control of your finances, focus on building your future and do it so from a calm, creative and positive mentality. I can't stress enough how well and positively I felt after each one of the sessions with Ryan. Through the whole process, you will discover abilities and motivations you didn't even know you had.
My biggest takeaway from working along with Ryan was realizing how positive, exciting and creative my future can be when I change my idea of what my relationship with money is, and how easy this can be achieved with the right steps and attitude. Immediately after the first session, you can start applying Ryan's concepts and see the change in real-time. This was and still is totally mind-blowing. I'm 100% confident this has been the most useful and long-lasting investment I've done to date.
I really recommend anyone who wants to improve their relationship with money to work along with Ryan and schedule a clarity session. You'll be surprised to see how empowered and positive you'll feel right away.
💬 We were trying to establish our financial and retirement goals as a couple. We wanted to work with someone we knew and that had a more holistic approach to finances.
Since working with Ryan, I have opened different accounts to manage my payments and savings. I also consolidated my 401k into one report, which has helped me easily keep track of my earnings. But my most significant accomplishment after our sessions with Ryan is having healthier, stress-free, and optimistic conversations with my husband about our joint financial decisions and future together.
It was very easy and helpful to work with Ryan. We were not only able to discuss practical paths for our financial goals but also openly talk about ways to change our personal relationship with money. I felt very comfortable sharing my concerns and my personal hangups about financial topics.
The biggest takeaway from working with Ryan was getting a completely different perspective of what taking control of my financial situation means. It doesn't need to be a stressful relationship, it can actually be fun to manage my own money, without guilt or fear. I feel more empowered about my future after getting coached by him.
Everyone could benefit from Ryan's coaching! I think most people are unaware of how the financial system can actually work to their benefit. Ryan is the person who can help with this.
💬 I was not saving regularly, all my money went into the same account and while I never went under each month I was not really saving or knowing how much money is there.
I knew Ryan from tattooing at Yarrow Studio which was next to Ryan’s studio and having a tattoo artist who understands the life I lead is really helpful. I felt overwhelmed before and during the session at times and week by week I feel like things started to make sense. Now it doesn’t feel as scary to check my accounts and work on them, cuz I know I have saving systems set up and I am not running out of money at any given time.
I now have several saving accounts that automatically take money and put them away weekly for various reasons and it feels really safe to have that set up for my life. I started to be able to continue on setting up the bucket system without Ryan’s hand holding and me and my partner's financial confidence feel a lot healthier, which is a big deal for us.
Setting up systems and taking a close look at my essential and non-essential spending help me have a true understanding of how much I make and how much I get to spend and it feels like they are going into the right aspects of my life.
Since the sessions, I see that I feel like I am more in control of my whole financial situation so I feel less stressed. I can look at my accounts in the apps without feeling overwhelmed on a daily basis. I still feel stressed when big bills come up, and I see myself stressing over not wanting my accounts to dip under the minimum, but that in itself is already a new layer it financial wellness I never used to have because the minimum is like a saving by itself. I also feel like we have conservatively over-estimated my spending so I am not so much in the red ever.
I think if you are in a similar place where everything banking-related feels overwhelming, then Ryan is your guy, he is calm and does the hand holding I need. Mostly, it is up to you to utilize Ryan’s help, he is helpful and will also try to tailor the course for your specific needs.
