Bonus Chapter from the Book (the chapter Ryan wanted to include but his publisher said was too controversial)
In his first book, Blair shared the brutally honest story of how he went from an at-risk youth, sleeping on a mattress on the floor of a shack, to a self-made multimillionaire by his early twenties. As his story became a national sensation, fans started asking him how they too could become entrepreneurs, take their careers to the next letel, and achieve financial freedom. Rock Bottom to Rock Star answers those questions.
Blair has battled extreme obstacles: life as a former gang member, balancing a demanding career with single parenthood, building and selling multiple companies, and making and losing tens of millions of dollars (sometimes all in one day). He wants to help others avoid the mistakes he made in the school of hard knocks, so he has compiled his unique advice for going from rock bottom to rock star in whatever fled you chose to pursue.
Much of his advice is counter-intuitive, and definitely not what you would learn in business school. Here’s one example:
"Don’t believe your own hype. The moment you start celebrating, you’ve left the stage. It wasn’t celebration that made you a rock star. It was hard work."
If you’re serious about making the most of your life and you’re ready to become the “rock star next door” instead of just looking up to them, this may be the most rewarding book you’ll ever read.
Ryan Blair is the CEO of ViSalus, #1 New York Times bestselling author, and serial entrepreneur who came from nothing to lose, and had everything to gain. At the age of 21 years old, Blair had already founded his first business, 24/ Tech, and has since created and sold numerous other companies for hundreds of millions of dollars over the course of his career. In 2012, Blair was named one of Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneurs of the Year in the “category for consumer products.” Blair is also a contributor for LinkedIn, Financial Times, and Forbes.com, and took a turn in movie production serving as Executive Producer for a number of films.
In August 2011, Blair published the New York Times Best Seller, Nothing To Lose and Everything To Gain: How I Went From Gang Member To Multimillionaire Entrepreneur (now available in Paperback, also a #1 New York Times bestseller), an uncensored personal account of overcoming a life of adversity and a road map for entrepreneurial success through the process of reinvention, while simultaneously facing the biggest professional challenge of his career: rescuing his company, ViSalus.
Shortly after the 2008 recession and just one month from having to declare bankruptcy, Blair and his business partners personally invested in a new business model that would later revolutionize the direct selling industry. In less than three years, Ryan Blair took ViSalus from $39 million in revenue to surpassing $1 billion in total sales in March 2013, and started venture fund HashtagOne, which has invested in several very successful start-ups. Ryan documented his path to success in his book, step by step, proving that any obstacle in business, and in life, can be overcome using survival skills and a nothing to lose mindset. Ryan has also released a behind-the-scenes account through his NOTHING TO LOSE Documentary which can be viewed online at www.NothingToLose.com.
Blair regularly appears as a business expert in national television networks, Bloomberg, CNBC, MSNBC, Fox, and Fox News. He has also been featured in major publications such as Fortune Magazine, BusinessWeek, Forbes Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, and People Magazine. He also serves as Executive Producer for a number of films.
Blair currently resides in Los Angeles with his son, Reagan.

The Blair Foundation is Ryan’s 501c3 initiative supporting at-risk youth.
The Blair Foundation is a Los Angeles based private charitable organization founded in 2008 by Ryan Blair, who, after having achieved his own financial independence, began supporting causes he felt a personal connection to like juvenile outreach in Ventura County, personally mentoring at-risk youth, and making contributions to charities and religious organizations. As the CEO of ViSalus, Ryan often donates his staff and resources to the causes they support.
Inspired by the Warren Buffet and Bill and Melinda Gates’ call to action for America’s wealthiest individuals, Ryan Blair has joined the cause and pledged that ninety percent of his assets will go to the Blair Foundation, to spread the seeds of entrepreneurial education. The Blair Foundation is not a foundation with lots of overhead and employees. The Blair Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization with less than 20% overhead. Ryan Blair personally oversees that its assets go to charitable initiatives.
