Ryan Ayres tell us about yourself:
Business comes really easy to me and is something I really enjoy. By business, I mean understanding how a business should be run, identifying opportunities for improvement, asking the right questions, finding the root cause of issues and just “getting it.”
I own a web design company and have worked with hundreds of small business owners. I’ve also worked for or with places like Microsoft, Ford, Dell, Perot Systems (Yes, as in Ross Perot), Sports Illustrated, and Time Inc., as well as large healthcare, real estate, and financial services companies. I have also spent time in the sports industry and have franchised businesses.
Over the last 20 years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with some super smart people and great business minds. I’ve also had the pleasure of helping, directly or indirectly, people who have great ideas, products or services but who really lacked core business skills.
So, in 2015, I took a hard look at what I do for the small, medium and large businesses I work with, and something became very clear: I help them run better businesses.
With my web design customers, I spend a lot of time advising them on things outside of their website. It’s a great feeling, and something I thoroughly enjoy. For larger companies, they too have a need for asking the right questions. After all, getting to the best answers comes from asking the right questions and answering them with candor and resolve.
That’s what I do. I help businesses of all sizes ask the right questions in nearly all aspects of their business (Technology, Marketing, Operations, etc.). I certainly don’t claim to have all of the answers, and I think a lot of times, the businesses I work with already know what they “should” be doing. They just need an outsider’s perspective.
What I can promise is that I provide clear, honest, and sound guidance based on 20+ years of experience and working with hundreds of businesses like yours. I won’t call your baby ugly, but you may hear that it needs some makeup.
Success isn’t always defined by making more money. Each business owner defines success differently. My passion and pleasure is helping you identify and go after Your Success.
