I am Ryan Williams. My life is divided into two life spans: Before learning about Nervous System Regulation, and After Nervous System Regulation.

I am a mycologist, breathwork teacher, and fungal storyteller. I'm certified as a Breathwork teacher, Yoga Nidra teacher, and meditation instructor. You may be familiar with my first book, "The Influencer Economy," and podcast of a similar name. After working in social media for Disney, Machinima, and many tech startups to help spread their stories, I now use my skills to further my mission: helping others learn helping others learn to heal themselves.

Have you been feeling stressed out with work, over-exhausted from the seemingly never-ending pandemic, or seeking a new way to treat your coffee compulsion?

The Nerv podcast will help you discover more about nervous system regulation. I welcome conversations with mycologists, comedians, authors, meditation teachers, athletes, abolitionists, artists, musicians, and writers. Nervous System Regulation is a tool for your tool kit, that can help you to deal with the challenges of life. It is both invigorating and relaxing. If you are curious about the type of impact Nervous System Regulation can have on burnout, stress, and upgrading your nervous system - then give this podcast a listen.

    Inhale in the chest
    Inhale in the belly
    Exhale it all out
    You breathe in two deep inhales. First in the belly, then in the chest. Then you exhale it all out. It's a lot of fun, thanks for joining!

    What does Breathwork feel like? In Breathwork you breathe with intention, which helps to calm down the nervous system. Intentional breathing helps to relax, since many of us spend our days breathing in fear, worried about our job security, or even anxious about missing traffic lights. We are burned out, Breathwork retrains us on how to breathe in a more healthy and even fun way.

    A Painfully Honest Field Guide to Launching a Business

    A Painfully Honest Field Guide to Launching a Business

    Rand Fishkin, the founder and former CEO of Moz, tells the secrets and tricks about how traditional Silicon Valley "wisdom" leads far too many companies to struggle.
    Did you know only 5% of startup businesses make it?  95% of startups fail, lose money, and never succeed. But if you read any book about Silicon Valley, entrepreneurs will glamorize the highs and ignore the lows. 
    I hate the word hustle and grind, and it's refreshing to see people like Rand tell the truth about how startups can actually succeed.
    Buy Rand's book: Lost and Founder: A Painfully Honest Field Guide to Launching a Business.
