More About the Author

Ryan Blair is a serial entrepreneur and self-made millionaire who had nothing to lose and everything to gain. At just 21 years old, Blair founded his first company, 24/7 Tech, and by the age of 34, he has founded and sold numerous businesses for hundreds of millions of dollars.

In August 2011, Blair authored the New York Times Best Seller, "Nothing To Lose and Everything To Gain: How I Went From Gang Member To Multimillionaire Entrepreneur." Uncensored and raw in his account of growing up in the face of adversity, Blair effectively imparts lessons learned from obstacles faced and provides a road map for entrepreneurial success. Blair's no ordinary businessman: he's a master of personal reinvention.

His biggest endeavor yet has been the overhaul of ViSalus Sciences, a company that manufactures weight loss and nutritional supplement products. Blair originally sold the company, but within just a few months, due to the recession, ViSalus was within one month from having to declare bankruptcy. As CEO, Blair went all-in, personally investing his last million dollars on a new business model that would later revolutionize the 118 billion dollar direct selling industry. In just 21 months, ViSalus went from 600,000 to 30 million dollars in monthly sales and is still climbing.Blair regularly appears as a business expert on national television networks such as CNBC, MSNBC, and Fox. He has also been featured in major publications including Fortune Magazine, BusinessWeek, Forbes Magazine and the Wall Street Journal. Blair is also a contributor for the Financial Times and took a turn in movie production serving as Executive Producer of Man in the Glass: The Dale Brown Story, an award winning documentary about the legendary LSU Basketball Coach.

Blair's captivating story was also a bestseller in USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and Inc. Magazine, amongst others. Through a candid and unfiltered voice, Nothing to Lose speaks to everyone, from struggling youth to thriving businessmen alike, illustrating how to turn failures into successes.

Blair currently resides in Los Angeles with his 2-year-old son, Reagan.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Ryan's book because he is so easy to relate to. He motivates with his drive and determination, mistakes and failures, sorrows and joy. I thank Ryan for helping me to learn from his mistakes. I appreciate his candid honesty, and his ability to think "outside the box." I intend to face the challenges of my growing business with a new attitude. I have NOTHING TO LOSE, and EVERYTHING TO GAIN!

Format: Paperback
I spent quite a bit of time pondering what I wanted to say about Ryan's book, and the impact it had on me. That's mainly because there are so many things I found helpful and inspiring. It was hard to narrow it down to one specific thing, or even just one generalization. It's true that the book offers lots of insight into the world of entrepreneurship, gives lots of practical advice about running a business, and teaches some important life lessons. The thing that kept coming to mind though, as I read through it, was how his words could stir emotion. I kept thinking how true to life Ryan's story is, and how he just laid it all out for the world to see. This is not an easy thing to do. It takes a huge amount of courage and fearlessness to bare your soul to anyone, much less the world. At times I giggled, sometimes I found myself deep in thought, my mind racing as something sparked my imagination. And sometimes, the tears welled up in my eyes, then fell to the page making a wet spot on the paper. Ryan shares his trials and triumphs with complete candor. To me a true leader is one who can inspire people, rouse their emotions, and stir them to action. Ryan certainly does that in life and in this book. I also love the new forward by Nick Sarnicola and the new chapter "Told You So," at the end. Both give added insight into the man that is Ryan Blair. Definitely a must read!

Format: Paperback
NOTHING TO LOSE, EVERYTHING TO GAIN by Ryan Blair is a straight-forward biography that shows us all that anything can be achieved if we are willing to work for it. In a very open and honest way, Ryan tells us how we can obtain our dreams regardless of who we are and what we have done. One of the best "how to be successful" books out there that shows by EXAMPLE and not fact.

What a blessing this book has been! Ryan makes no excuses, qualms or attempts to hide where he came from. He's committed to reveal his skeletons in hopes to save the future generations from a life of poor choices. Ryan could have ended up a statistic. When his mother introduced him to a man who then became his mentor, Ryan learned he was valuable, loved and accepted. Grab this book...give it to an at-risk kid...you could change the course of his/her life. Lastly, I was so impressed and amazed when I learned that every proceed penny goes toward mentoring at-risk kids. Pick up several copies. Get your churches and schools to order. Let's help change the world. Thank you Ryan Blair!
