Moving from Success to Significance with Christopher Ryan

I Love Recruiting

On this episode, Adam talks to CEO of Gobundance Christopher Ryan about how he discovered his passion for helping people define and chase their significance over their success.  After building a tech company and selling it right before the tech bubble burst in his twenties, Christopher was asked to help with Tiger21, one of the most influential social networking groups where the average net worth of the members was $100M.  He set out to learn how he could help these people and found a book called Halftime:Moving from Success to Significance by Bob Buford.  The book helped change his mindset about everything, and he started a relationship with Bob Buford where he learned even more about finding significance.  He shares what he has learned over the years helping people find significance: that showing up as your authentic self is the first most important thing to do, that a natural curiosity for who you’re talking to will help you see their authentic self, and that if you open yourself up to the seeds of opportunity in relationships, you will have a rich garden of life.  With that knowledge, Christopher started GoBundance, a tribe for healthy, wealthy men who choose to lead EPIC lives.To learn more about Gobundance, go tohttps://www.gobundance.com/To check out Bob Buford's book, go tohttps://www.amazon.com/Halftime-Changing-Your-Success-Significance-ebook/dp/B000SG9IUE/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=halftime%3A+mens+transition+from+success+to+significance&qid=1620825848&sr=8-3

The Evolution And Success Secrets Behind The Mastermind Industry | Christopher Ryan

Millionaire Mindcast

In this episode of the Millionaire Mindcast, we have an impressive guest, Christopher Ryan shares insights and wisdom on living the best version of yourself in all aspects of life, accountability hacks, handling fears and inadequacy, how to easily build relationships, the secrets to a mastermind group, and the benefits of GoBundance! Christopher Ryan is a serial entrepreneur, investor, CEO of GoBundance, Founder and President of Paredigm Enterprises, a consulting firm helping individuals, companies, and nonprofits realize their goals; and the Texas and Puerto Rico Chair for TIGER 21, the premier peer-to-peer learning organization for ultra-high-net-worth individuals. This incredible man values education, health, sports, and religious upbringing. He first started in the business when he was 17 years old. Just like the whole world, he also faced some form of adversity but did his best to get through, and develop strengths around it. Chris strongly believes that life is all about driving significance and mastering your lives. Likewise, the measure of contribution to this world is not based on the success that you have but finding your real purpose to make your life worth living for. Chris emphasizes that life is so short, therefore, prioritize health, relationships, family, and help other people achieve their significance in order to be more fulfilled, and happier!  Some Questions I Ask: Where did your entrepreneurial trail and journey begin?

(32:16) What are you most excited about for GoBundance moving forward? (36:48) Talk to me about the importance of having accountability baked into your life? How can somebody create more accountability in their life to take to the next level? (41:25) What are you paying attention to right now? What is your bread and butter on wealth building? What does that look like going forward for you?

At the age of 8, Christopher is too young to join the cocktail party, but he *is* old enough to learn about consent, pleasure and natural urges at a party for… one?
