Today on The Rise To The Top: The #1 Non-Boring Business Show: Of the folks I’ve interviewed on the show that are making 6 and 7 figures online, I often ask how they got started. More often than not, I hear that they learned from and invested in a program with Ryan Lee. After hearing his name over and over, I knew I had to get him on the show. Today we talk about his background and how he got started online, and then shift into talking about what is working now online and what Ryan and his students are doing right now that is making them the most successful. Enjoy!

I use RISE partner Wistia for video hosting because they rock. Check ’em out.

Jet Set BodyNot sure if you saw, but this past week I was featured on and I shared my story of my fitness transformation, when I went from soft-ish to super-fit in 90 days. Working from a computer can be not so good for the body and I found the non-gimmicky solution that not only will get you ripped in 90 days, but you’ll stay ripped. I’ve done the program 3+ times now.

Underground 8Final chance to get all the cool bonuses and lowest price for Underground Online Seminar 8 happening in DC March 1st-3rd. I’ve got my ticket. I’ll be there. Why?

Have You Seen These Episodes?

  • That was another great episode, David. Really enjoying the people that you have been bringing onto the show. It’s crazy to me that all of the recent people are people involved in exactly what I need to hear right now. I’m working on a membership site as we speak, you interview Stu and I learn about Wishlist, you interview Ryan who knows the in’s and out’s about membership sites, this is awesome! 🙂 Thank you both!

    • David Siteman Garland

      I’m in your brain, Mike. Muhahaha

      • Hahaha it’s really starting to feel that way 🙂 I hope that someday after I apply everything I’ve been learning from you and your guests and become wildly successful myself I could get interviewed by you 😉 

        • Mike,

          Don’t “hope” to apply this information and become successful – set a goal, take action every day to reach that goal, and don’t stop until you are a guest on this show!!!

          If I can do it, I truly believe anyone can.

          Never, ever doubt yourself.

          Ok, I’ll get off my motivational soapbox now 🙂


          • David Siteman Garland

            Sound advice. No such thing is “hope” (well there is…but you know what I mean)

          • I thought that was do or do not, there is no try? 😉

          • Haha, don’t worry, Ryan, I won’t hope to apply, I simply hope for validation of eagerly anticipated successful year 😉 After I see where my budget stands and where I can pull funds from I’m joining your inner circle 🙂 (Psst, if you have affiliates for that David needs to sign up ;D)

    • It was my pleasure Mike – and I’m glad you found it valuable.

      Rock ‘on

  • vanae

    seriously, loving that guy! ryan lee, a sound guy. thanks for making that interview happen, david!

    • David Siteman Garland

      V – For sure! And now we are both officially Ryan Lee students, eh? 🙂

      • David – get ready for my new coaching program starting on Thurs.

        I’m looking forward to seeing your finished product!


        • David Siteman Garland

          Yes, sir, coach, sir! 🙂

    • Thanks for your support Vanae!


  • I grew up in New City. Which highschool and what year did you Ryan graduate?

    • Hey Marina,

      I graduated from Clarkstown North in 1990. How about you?


      • I thought so, I didn’t remember you:) And we look around the same age. I went to South!

        Great interview.

        • David Siteman Garland

          I love the NYC connection LOL

  • I love the focus on the early days that you keep going back to with your guests. It’s awesome to hear how successful people got started. It inspires me and I am always taking notes.
    Keep up the good work David! 

    • David Siteman Garland

      Thanks Jeremy. That is definitely what I’m going for especially with bigger guests where their level of success is so huge it seems unattainable. I’m always looking to learn: 1. Where it began, first steps, first product, etc. 2. And then of course some actionable deep diving into a particular subject.

  • This is what sets Ryan apart from the pack. I’ve loved your guests, as you know, but how many come back and personally reply to comments?

    • David Siteman Garland

      Hah, good point Jason. Although quite a few do!

      • Jason – thanks for you comments

        And David… seriously, how many other guests kick as much ass as me?


        Thanks for your support fellas!

  • Very Good Interview David… Ethical guy, Product Husband/Father…. Loved it!

    • “Proud Father/Husband”…. I have a product idea!

    • David Siteman Garland

      Definitely a great guy!

  • Great show David! I love Ryan’s dedication to his work, intense focus and high level of integrity. Looking forward to more of your shows!

    • David Siteman Garland

      He is that for sure. I love the intensity 🙂

  • Debbie Saviano

    Great Show David,
    Ryan Lee was so Real and I love that he started as a Teacher! 
    HIs points on working across “Geographical Boundaries” is one of the coolest parts of what we all do these Days. 
    You Can Connect, Interact and Support no matter jus so there is a little thing called the Internet.
    His Passion shines through….great interview…

    • David Siteman Garland

      Totally. And I love that he is a do-er and a teacher an awesome combo.

  • Really great blog post here. Ryan shared a lot of valuable information and I honestly enjoy his approach to life and his business. This is something I really like about him and his business model.

    • David Siteman Garland

       He is a great dude

  • Awesome! I didn’t get to see this one before.  Good job!

  • Dee

    Dee here. Signed up for Ryan’s Earn 1k. Also getting started with Natalie (who you recommended) on designing my wordpress site.  So far…dumping Ramit Sethi’s Earn $1k course has paid for your “Create Awesome Interviews” and Ryan’s “1k Per Day” courses. Not meaning any disrespect to Ramit because his program is good, but it seemed targeted to those just looking to earn a little bit on the side. The audience seemed to be for younger folks who weren’t necessarily looking to achieve a 6 to 7-figure income.

    I wanted a real business based on my passions and that I could be proud. My new courses are super high quality and worth it. Pricing is crazy low for the value.

    My next step is to bring it and I’m glad I have your and Ryan’s support throughout this process.
