  • Hi again Mike

    Really looking forward to this one. I listened to Ryan on the Road To Ripped podcast recently, bought the book, and it is friggin incredible. He really has changed things up from a lot of the usualy motivation books, perhaps it is just that his style resonates more with me than others, but for a relatively young guy (no offence) he really does have his head screwed on. A great guest!!

      Thanks man! I hope you like it. Yeah it’s a great book!

      • Listened to the podcast last night, excellent listening before bed. He (and you) have some great insights, I think I’m gonna have to push my work week out to 70 hours to make some progress! When you started your site, what was your focus? Blog posts, guest posts, networking or social media, or a mix of all of them? I have motivation, but a little paralysis by analysis I am afraid 🙂

        Cheers for the site and effort you put in

          Thanks man! Nothing works like working twice as much as the other guy. 🙂

          I completely focused on building my own content. I’m not networked for shit in this space and haven’t done much guest posting or interviewing or anything, lol.

    The guests keep getting better and better!
