Ryan Moran is founder of Capitalism.com and Freedom Fast Lane. He started with nothing and turned himself into a successful entrepreneur. Ryan helps other self-starting high achievers build their business, reinvest their profits, find freedom in their work and move away from the 9-5 mindset.

Ryan entered college thinking his life would go down a much different path. He grew up in a religious family and went to college to become a minister. Everything changed for him while sitting in an economics class listening to the morals behind an economic system. His professor explained money as an exchange of value. This was a new concept to Ryan. Looking at money as an exchange of value made him realize making money was a positive rather than something to feel guilty about. It was a source of freedom rather than a source of greed or evil.

Ryan quickly saw capitalism and entrepreneurism as the only system where he could define the world he wanted to live in, rather than having it defined for him. As the millennial generation matures there seems to be a desire for the state to fix everything. People change the most when they see actual results that make a difference personally in their life. Ryan shares examples of people getting in the game, participating in transactions, and getting motivated. Free market allows the chance for everyone to create and have a light bulb moment. The more empowered people are, the less need for state intervention.
