“Ryan was an integral part in the creation of my first book, Confidence Creator. As a first-time author I had no idea how to structure or detail my book so it would connect with readers. Ryan used his expertise to guide and teach me how to write and publish a successful book in just a few months. I am forever grateful for his help and support! I highly recommend working with Ryan!”
