what is xcell fund?
Private Equity Fund
What are the things that you look for in a friend? Are you that kind of person with very many friends or you believe in having very few yet meaningful friends?
Which celebrity would you like to meet?
I like meeting rappers, Gucci Mane would be cool.
If I was to hire you today, what is the average salary that you will be willing to be paid from me? What other benefits do I need to know before I hire you?
I'd accept $9 an hour because I just got a raise at the grocery store.
What industries are your angel investments in. Not asking for specifics just generally speaking. Do you invest in local based businesses?
I'm pretty broad with my investments. They used to be limited exclusively to Internet, but that's not the case anymore. Everything from local businesses to SaaS.
What's you morning mix to get you started for work? Caffeine, redbull, coffee, pills?
Espresso. Nothing fancy, it seems to work best for me.
Would you ever invest in cryptocurrencies or consider them as safe haven?
I've invested before but I don't like the fact that you cannot leverage margin to trade, it's an extremely important financial instrument that I use in other markets to succeed.
Back in the day it seemed affiliates really were making good money. As a network owner did they make as much as they appeared to make?
Today, if you could take a glimpse at your future 10 years from now, would you?
Yea, why not. It's going to be great.
Which apps/programs help you the most to run your business day to day?
I use Telegram, Asana, and JIRA daily. I'm mostly fucking off on Telegram shot calling to people that administer all of the other applications nowadays though.
Did you get a prenup before marriage?
I'm not married nor would I get married without one.
How many hours do you work these days? I remember when you said you used to work 20 hour days, 7 days a week - was that slightly over exaggerated or actually true?
Actually true (at the time). There were years of 20 hour work days that I lived. You don't get Rolls Royce's, Bentley's and other exotics by the age of 23 by relaxing. Nowadays I work between 25-40 hours a week - enjoying the balance of life a lot more.
What's your ultimate goal and do you think you will ever retire? Why work insane hours if you no longer have to?
I don't work as much as I used to - less than 40 hours a week. I'm enjoying life a lot more these days than I used to. The point of work and success isn't to work more, is it?
This year, what is that one project that you feel best worked out for you? How much did you get as returns from the entire project?
I made an investment exactly a year ago and it's grown 50x since I got involved, it's been a super exciting project for me. Plus, I've been absolutely loving the work I've been doing at XCell Fund lately.
In which order do you value the following: money, friendship, family, you, your sobriety, girls, business
Great question. Sobriety, family, (me), money, business, friendship, girls.
Do you ever take caffeine pills instead of coffee?
I take one caffeine pill a day. You have to be careful about them (coming from experience) because they build tolerance super quickly it seems.
Do you think it's best to work for yourself or someone else and why?
Each person is different. There is no shame in working for someone else if you need the security or have a good deal. For me, I've always loved working for myself because I truly get to do whatever I want to do. Plus, it pays alright so I might as well keep it up.
How come you passworded your Tumblr? I liked reading your insights, especially the business related stuff.
Ex girlfriend was reading my shit.
It’s Saturday night! Would you rather stay home with the one you love or have a fun party with your best friends?
I'm home with the one I love - my daughter. She is the light of my life.
I just read this on your Tumblr: http://theryaneagle.tumblr.com/post/86386337868/insane-work-schedule When you say 'you can't turn on/off your hustle because you're just not normal' what do you mean exactly? You struggle to not work or you get obsessed with it that you become absorbed by it?
I've changed my life a lot since that post (3+ years ago). I now work till 5pm and take the day off then. Work is not the alpha and omega of life.
What software/process do you use too keep track of your personal and business expenses? Thanks
I use an accountant that uses Xero.
Do you believe in workouts as the best way to keep fit and even healthy? Have you ever tried having a morning run or hitting the gym ?
I've been working out again for about three weeks now - it's been good for my mind to do something positive for my health.
Hello Ryan, do you have a personal relationship with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ? The Son of God. Do you ask the Lord Jesus to bless you with wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and discernment? And do you ask the Lord Jesus to strengthen you to overcome all of your trials and tribulations?
I don't really get into the whole religious thing, I'm a spiritual guy.
Who is your best friend?
I have three friends that I would consider my best friends equally.
