Introduction to Ryan
I am Ryan Keen. I am currently a University student in New York. I'm 21 years old, and I've amassed more success in the past two years than the average human does in a lifetime. By stating and showing my accomplishments, my goal isn’t to brag or boast; it’s to simply show entrepreneurs the potential they have. Our generation was blessed with Social Media. Unlike most "experts" and gurus out there, I'm not going to say I was in debt or bankrupt before Social Media "changed" my life - I wasn't. However, growing up, I never had the privilege of being in a wealthy family. My parents managed to accumulate enough money for me to graduate high-school and attend post-secondary school. Along side my formal education, I was able to work a few side jobs to pay off some bills. I lived an average lifestyle.
Being raise in an average household, I was always known as the young 'entrepreneur' who made money from selling unused toys, shovelling snow, mowing lawns, etc.. To be honest, I hated the word "entrepreneur." It was a little flashy and 'cringey.' It wasn't too long before I realized I had a talent, where I could turn ordinary tasks into lucrative streams of income, even if they were only small sums of money.
Fast forward a few years past high school: at the age of 19, I stumbled across Instagram. I was late to the trend. There were millions of influencers out there making a living off this free platform. Immediately, I started a page with no planning or researching, to repost photos that I found interesting. Paying no attention to the small details (timing, engagement, quality, etc.), my page plateaued at roughly 30,000 organic followers. Even with tens of thousands of followers, I wasn't able to make a single dime and my passion for operating online businesses died off.
What changed? I pictured my future as an accountant, as a doctor, as an engineer (the most profitable corporate jobs at the time), and none of them appealed to me. Imagine working 40 hours a week for someone else, to only earn a few hundred dollars. In my eyes, that's not employment, that's enslavement. The thought of working a ‘9-5’ job behind a desk, with only a two-week vacation per year drove me right back into the entrepreneurial lifestyle.
As a University student, I had to balance my formal education along with my online business ventures. The required workload did not stop me from spending nearly twenty hours every day for several months to figure out the formula to building a successful online business. Through months of research and experimentation I found the right formula for Social Media expansion and even better, I found out exactly how to create multiple income streams off of these free digital platforms. Nowadays, with only twenty minutes on my phone, I am able to generate thousands of dollars, while exponentially growing my social media reach.
Some have asked me, “Why are you still in school if you’re making so much money?” 2 reasons: To me, the purpose of school isn’t to learn what the professors teach. The purpose of school is to learn how to critically think, and self-learn new knowledge.
Let’s say you get lucky and you’re able to make $100,000 next month. You’re uneducated, you don’t know how to critically think, and you have no idea how to properly adapt to new situations - you’ll go broke. I believe in being wealthy and educated, not just wealthy.
My second reason? I enjoy helping others. I started University with the plan on going into the medical field, to help others in every way that I can. Throughout university, I’ve had the privilege of helping numerous individuals. Whether that be studying, tutoring, or even inspiring others to start their own businesses, I’ve always been an advocate of making a living off pursuing one’s passions.
Through Levanté and several other businesses, I’ve helped a countless number of ambitious entrepreneurs create their paths to success. I teach my mentees how to significantly grow their reach and further monetize their page(s) in any niche of their choice (i.e. luxury, motivation, fitness, travel, etc.), regardless of the initial page size. This translates directly into remunerative income streams, including advertising, affiliate marketing, personal branding, etc.. To this day, I still dedicate nearly twenty hours a day to ensure my students are receiving the most out of my mentorship. With the Lifetime Mentorship I offer, I guide my students through every single step I've taken to reach where I am today (Social Media aspect).
Join the Movement
To begin, I do charge a small, one-time fee in exchange for the Lifetime Mentorship feature enlisted in my courses (Instagram Mastery/Dropship Mastery). Instead of spending countless of hours figuring out how to grow on Social Media, specifically Instagram, all you have to do is spend thirty minutes daily, following the blueprint you'll receive upon becoming a mentee. Upon registration, you will receive customized guides, daily routines, and tailored blueprints that detail each and every step I've taken to reach where I am today. You'll gain access to plenty of resources, such as designer agencies who are available 24/7, one-on-one business calls, network expansion, and MUCH more.
