Ryan is by far the most adept young entrepreneur that I've met in Raleigh, NC. Having been to various conferences and through comprehensive ... leadership programs, I feel comfortable saying that Ryan is a creative, resourceful, and highly motivated individual. The thing about Ryan is that he already is a great entrepreneur; for proof just refer to his CV. He started a nonprofit during high school and is currently changing the way we look at human resources with EmployUs. Consequently, Ryan truly deserves to become a part of this network.
