Introduction
You can connect with me on my blog Ryan Stephens Marketing or on Twitter @ryanstephens.

I am an entrepreneurial minded 20-something who is extremely passionate about both marketing and helping people. I believe in the power of the Internet and its ability to cultivate conversations, relationships and the spread of ideas.

Some of my specialties include:

  • Creating integrated digital strategies that drive revenue
  • Establishing a relationship between social media metrics and business metrics
  • Facilitating intelligent growth for online communities
  • Leveraging social technologies to scale external marketing efforts and an internal culture of sharing

I'm a nerd who tries to wake up before you so I can spend an an hour or so reading articles about: behavior psychology, entrepreneurship, marketing, happiness, neuroscience, fitness, personal finance and other things that interest me.

I strongly believe that the U.S. education system is broken and that open-office plans increase stress and decrease workplace satisfaction.

I like challenging the status quo and I love when science validations my assumptions about life.

I think that Brené Brown couldn't be more correct when she says that control is a mirage and that the most effective leaders embrace empathy, vulnerability, humility, inclusiveness, generosity, balance and patience. 

I try to remind myself that facing discomfort is probably a key to life, or at the very least success.

I like bourbon and I get energized from meeting with and talking to interesting people.
