A MUST LISTEN!!! 👍👍
After stumbling upon Ryan’s awesome podcasts I can tell you I am a fan. I’ve been slowly working my way through the podcasts from the very beginning. I love all the guest writers and the great advice Ryan dishes out. He motivated me to finally put pen to paper and I have 35k words. Thanks again Ryan.
Inspiring and Motivating
After listening to just one podcast I could not drive home fast enough to write this review. Ryan and his wisdom are inspiring and motivational. It was as if he found a way inside my head and turned on the lightbulb. The prolific writer is highly recommended as a tool for writers of all experience.
Ryan does a great job in opening a writer’s mind and senses to needed information. Writing is a craft and it is wonderful to have your brain fed with positive energy and words from both Ryan and the many guest writers that he invites on the show. Each episode focuses on encouraging the seasoned and newbie author. Thank you for all of your hard work that benefits all of us!
