So Money - Episode 39

Ryan Levesque

Marketing Expert and Business Coach

Imagine achieving a 40%+ annual return on your investments for 8 years straight?! And not through a ponzi scheme. Today’s guest started investing when he was 10 years old and managed to grow his $5,000 inheritance to pay for two years of college – and we’re talkin’ Brown University! My guest today is Ryan Levesque.

Ryan is a marketing expert and business coach who started his business in 2008 armed with nothing but a $450 laptop, an Ivy-league education and an insatiable curiosity to understand why people buy… which led him to creating the “Ask Formula”.

Ryan has used his Ask formula to help build multi-million dollar businesses in 17 different industries, generating over $100 million dollars in sales in the process. Today, he and his team offer training, consulting, and implementation services for entrepreneurs and businesses at all levels.
