HI, I AM RYAN.

I am 28 years old and from a small town in southeastern Minnesota. I went to college at Winona State University where I graduated in December 2011 with a double major in Accounting and Business Administration and a minor in Management. I obtained a job in the accounting field working in downtown Minneapolis right out of college.

I worked at this position for a little over a year and a half before I decided that it was time to create my own future and decided to step away from my job.

More About Me

My last day at work was September 20th, 2013.  Quitting my job is allowing me to work on my entrepreneurial pursuits full time.  Some of which are related to buying and selling online which is what I will be writing about on this blog.

I have been selling online in some capacity since I was 18, and have gained a level of experience where I felt confident that I could make a decent income without a “normal” job.  I began slowly selling on ebay and amazon and have over the years learned a great deal about what works and what doesn’t.  I have been full time selling online and self-employed since September of 2013.  I have shared many and continue to share my experiences selling online on this website.

Although this blog will share many financial aspects of the selling online business, there are many other factors that contributed to me wanting to do this full time.  The first of which is freedom.  I now run my own schedule and don’t have to be at work for as many hours as my employer says, and be limited to a few weeks of vacation per year.  This is one of the biggest benefits.  I control my own time, and don’t have anyone telling me when and if I can do certain things.  This is a double edged sword of course, because if I put in no effort then I will not make any money and then I will likely have to go back to a job.  This fact keeps me motivated to working hard for myself.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing sports, being outdoors, and living life.  If you want to know more just ask! Or feel free to send me an email to ryan@onlinesellingexperiment.com.
