Aside from being a dynamic speaker and award-winning author, I am a well recognized personal branding expert.

I specialize in helping people build intentional personal brands that are relatable, authentic, and influential. My process and methods have been developed from my own experiences, research, and building my own brand from scratch.

My goal is to make you win at being you.

Watch your brand grow - with the help of Ryan Foland

Do you feel that no matter how hard you work, you aren’t growing as quickly as you’d like with your career? Or worse yet, feeling stagnant?

The Evolution of Ryan Foland

You might be overlooking the most important thing to get you ahead in life: yourself.

Of you’re a business owner, that your company isn’t growing as quickly as you like?

You may be focusing too much on trying to market your business and not enough time marketing yourself. When we feel stagnant in life and are unable to get ahead, it’s usually due to one of two things. You’re either:

  1. Focusing on the wrong areas and need a step-by-step guide that walks you through exactly what to do.
  2. You know exactly what it is that you need to do, but you don’t know how to do it.

We’ve hit a point in society where we’re told to put our best foot forward. To go out there and hype up who we are and tout our successes and accolades. Sometimes to the point where we might come across as facetious. It's time to get real.

Your brand is who you are - Ryan Foland

They say fake it until you make it. But what does that do?

Ryan Foland

Anyone who has tried to fake it knows it just doesn’t work. Not in a sustainable way, at least. Sure, you might get a few early successes, but at the end, faking who you are will catch up to you.

People tell us to have a persona that radiates success. If you’ve given that a try, chances are that your impostor syndrome goes into full alert, because you feel like you are a complete fraud. That’s because we’re not the epitome of all of our accomplishments. We are a collective of the good, the bad and our version of the ugly. I help you

Why you need to ditch the act

Building a personal brand isn’t just limited to one specific type of person; it can work in for you based on your immediate needs. It doesn’t just work for me. It doesn’t just work for my clients either. The process of taking off the mask, ditching the act and exposing ourselves works no matter who you are.

My philosophy is that by having the courage to share your failures and weaknesses, you are able to teach from experience. Owning your whole story is an essential element to creating an authentic personal brand… I show my clients exactly how ditching the act and getting vulnerable is the best way to differentiate and grow your brand, while cultivating brand loyalty.

Ditch the act and be yourself - Ryan Foland
what others think your brand is drawing - ryan foland

If you don’t have a job and are looking for one, you will find that a personal brand is absolutely essential in landing your next role.

No matter what category you fall under, you still have a personal brand. The reality is that your personal brand is the intersection between what you want to be known for and what people think of you.

I help my clients get known for their expertise through sharing stories of their experience.

Where ever you are, a personal brand will get you further 

Do You Hate Your Job?

It’s okay, you are not alone. But I can show that you already have what it takes to build a powerful personal brand that will help you find the career you always wanted.

Do You Love Your Job?

That’s great, me too. You can build a personal brand that will allow you to continue to grow and progress forward, well positioned when you are ready to upgrade your current position.

Are You An Entrepreneur?

Awesome. A personal brand will be the cornerstone of the growth of your company. Plus, it will stick around with you after you either sell your company off or start a new one.

Are You A Mother?

Great. You can build a strong and authentic brand with your dynamic perspectives. Your experience and expertise can translate into amaizing high value content that is relatable.

Why having a perfect brand will work against you

core message - Ryan Foland

Real-life is messy, and that is why building a perfect brand will work against you. If you pretend that nothing bad ever happens to you, you won’t be as relatable. 

People don't care about the story of your success. But they do care about how they see themselves in your story. And that is why building a brand in 2020 and beyond, is not about creating a "Highlight Reel," showcasing only the good. Powerful, authentic brands create a "Highlight REAL," which allows people to get to know them, then like them, and ultimately trust them.
