Ocean Robbins, CEO of The Food Revolution Network, comments about what inspires many social entrepreneurs:
“I wanted to make a living and support my family and be taken care of, and have abundance in my life and be able to live well.
“I didn’t want to live richly but I wanted to live beautifully. I wanted to live happily and feel like my kids were going to have the support they need long-term – and I didn’t know how to bridge those worlds.
He talks about the value personally and for his business in learning from Ryan Eliason and the Visionary Business School:
“After we lost our savings in 2008, I was overcome with anxiety about how to provide for my family.
“Ryan provided key guidance and coaching that helped me grow The Food Revolution Network from zero revenue into a $300,000 dollar company in its first 6 months.
“We now have over 350,000 members, a staff of 7, and a 7-figure enterprise standing up for healthy, sustainable, humane and delicious food for all.
“I can’t tell you how much it means to me, that I get to do work that I love and that supports my family, and to be making such a huge impact in the world.
“I know we wouldn’t be where we are today without Ryan’s help.”

Ryan Eliason notes in his book “How To Make a Lucrative Career Out of Profound Service” :
My work has taught me that there are as many ways to change the world as there are people on this planet.
Each of us has a unique role to play, and we’re all desperately needed at this critical time.
If we’re going to survive and thrive as a species, it’s going to take all of us working together, each playing a part that contributes to our collective evolution.
However, in order for you to play your part you need to be financially empowered.
In the course of working with thousands of changemakers, I’ve witnessed hundreds of ways that people get paid for changing the world.
Some of them work better than others. Some methods will make a more profound positive difference. Some will lead to greater income.

Susan Peirce Thompson, PhD founded Bright Line Eating in 2014. She is “a tenured psychology professor and a New York Times best-selling author who has spent her career studying the effects of food and eating on the brain.”
She says “I knew I had a purpose and something to contribute to the world – and I was terrified of how to take my next steps.
“What was missing before I started working with Ryan [Eliason] is that I didn’t have a system.”
Why not create a business that feeds your soul?
Stacey Murphy of GrowYourOwnVegetables.org [on Facebook: Garden Geeks Grow More] is another client of Visionary Business School:
Stacey talks about deciding to pursue what she really loved:
“One day I was on my way to work at an architecture firm and I realized that I was designing spaces for other people’s lives and I hadn’t thought about what my life looked like and how I would design my life.
“And what I realized is that all I wanted to do is spend time at the farmers market and I wanted to be back connected with my food – because in my community where I lived there was no access to fresh food.
“So I decided one day I couldn’t go to work and I just hung out the farmers market and that was the day that I decided I wanted to be an urban farmer in Brooklyn.
“My name is Stacey Murphy and it’s my mission to help 1 million people start successful vegetable and herb gardens…I think it’s important that people have a homegrown health solution.”

How Ryan Eliason Helped Me Fall in Love with Marketing
Stacey Murphy comments: “I love gardening and teaching people how to grow food, but I didn’t always love the marketing I had to do for my classes.”
She notes in the video that Ryan Eliason “helped me realize that I can define marketing for myself.
“I was defining it as something so distasteful that I didn’t like myself while I was doing it.
“Ryan’s coaching helped me to rewire my thoughts and connect my heart back to my vision.”
Sage Lavine, CEO of Women Rocking Business talks about Visionary Business School:
“Before I discovered Ryan and his program, I was in complete chaos, and one giant ball of confusion.
“I had just left my job, was broke, and on the brink of leaving my marriage.
“Ryan showed me the steps I needed to take to start my business, but most importantly, he gave me the mindset to believe in myself.
“I now have a seven-figure business, and work only 12 days a month or less! I get to travel the world, and spend time with my family.
“All of this is because of Ryan’s support. I never imagined this life would be possible for me.”
The Revolutionary Entrepreneur Manifesto
A publication by the company asks:
What if this business…
…generated enough money for you to thrive,
…allowed you to make a profound positive difference,
…and gave you the freedom to spend your time doing exactly what YOU love most?
Would that be a breakthrough for you?
Well, the good news is, this IS possible!
But you won’t get there using a disjointed hodgepodge of isolated tactics.
You need a holistic and proven system.

In this free ebook, Ryan Eliason notes:
Before I outline The 4 Ingredients of Revolutionary Success, you might be wondering how I got into all of this and figured it out.
Let me tell you so you can understand where it’s coming from.
I had a 4.0 grade point average in high school, and my goal at the time was to go to a top school, get a job on Wall Street, make millions of dollars, and retire young.
That was my limited idea of success back then.
But the more I learned about the radical injustice, conflict and suffering taking place around the world, and the more I learned about things like climate change and rapidly accelerating species extinction, the less appealing this selfish idea of success became.
Then, everything changed for me at age 19 when I walked out into the middle of a clear cut forest near my home in Eugene, Oregon, in the Northwest of the United States.
In case you don’t already know, a “clear-cut” is a method of logging where they cut down every tree and bulldoze the entire area, leaving no shred of life behind.
What was once a diverse ecosystem that may have taken thousands of years to develop can be transformed into a barren wasteland in a matter of hours…
The pain I felt that day turned into love, which turned into a deep inspiration to be of service, and I finally understood the famous quote from Rabindranath Tagore:
I slept and dreamt that life was joy.
I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.
Starting A Non-Profit Organization
It wasn’t long after this clear-cut experience that I decided to start a non-profit organization with my friend Ocean Robbins. We were teenagers.
Our vision was to have a leveraged, positive impact on the world by empowering young visionary leaders around the world.

This book is dedicated to the creation of a compassionate, just, sustainable, spiritually awake world where everyone wins!
Human civilization as we know it is unsustainable, and is currently expressing only a tiny fraction of its true potential. However, there is a great awakening taking place.
A beautiful future is possible – perhaps one that is even more amazing than we can imagine.
This is a time of unprecedented opportunity, and it is no accident that you are alive on the planet today. I believe that every single one of us has an important role to play in the healing and transformation of our world.
Visionary business is a path to a deeply satisfying life of success and service
Ryan Eliason of the Visionary Business School and The Social Entrepreneur Empowerment Network says:
Growing your visionary business is the best possible path I know to a deeply satisfying life, including all four essential ingredients of Revolutionary Success:
#1 – Self-Actualization: Becoming your highest potential self. Fully embodying and expressing who you were meant to become.
#2 – Profound Service: Making a profound positive difference for your clients and the world. Finding and living your soul’s purpose – your personal mission that you are uniquely designed for.
#3 – Enjoying the Journey: Having the time, spaciousness, and support you need to fully enjoy your life right now. This includes great health and energy, satisfying relationships, and plenty of adventure.
#4 – Financial Prosperity: Having enough money to thrive, to live life on your terms, and to give generously to the people and causes that you care about most.
