Ryan started his first business when he was 14 and has been hooked on business ownership ever since. He has learned to channel his ADHD into tons of energy which helps him to outwork his competitors, and has honed the creativity to find solutions for complex challenges. After graduating Saginaw Valley State University he moved to the paradisiacal Florida Keys, where he began his marketing business, Promotions Guy. In 2016, Promotions Guy expanded to Michigan to be closer to family. He’s a former City Commissioner, an active Rotarian, a guitarist in his church band, Youth Hockey Coach and a member of various Non-Profit Boards. He loves helping others in any way that he can and we at FTN do too! I hope you enjoy our visit with this creative marketing entrepreneur!
