Blair grew up in Southern California and by the age of 13, was already a troubled gang member.
By the age of 17, Blair was facing a four year prison sentence. He had an inner knowing to persuade the judge by writing him a letter begging for leniency. Ryan got leniency and his faith got renewed. When Blair turned 18, his mother began dating a successful real-estate entrepreneur who became Blair’s mentor and gave him his first job, at Logix Development, a computer technical support provider. By 21, after serving as vice president of Logix Development, Blair founded his first company, the technical-support firm 24/7 Tech. In 2005, Ryan Blair became the CEO of the multi-level marketing company ViSalus Sciences, which he later sold for $792 million-dollars.
Blair is also the author of two books, 'Nothing To Lose Everything To Gain.' which became a #1 New York Times Best seller in 2011 and 'From Rock Bottom To Rock Star', which was released in 2016.
