Ryan Mason, CEO, A Journey From NFL Dreams to Yahoo's 2020 Top 12 Entrepreneur to Follow How'd It Happen Podcast

Ryan Mason is the CEO of Luxe Brand, the world’s leading luxury shoelace brand. Luxe Brand shoelaces have been featured on Good Morning America, NFL Network, Foot Locker stores, and on over 30 athletes and celebrities. Luxe Brand shoelaces give people the choices they need to make themselves stand out in a crowd. Ryan was also recently named by Yahoo as one of the Top 12 Entrepreneurs to Watch in 2020, which includes super entrepreneurs Gary V and Neil Patel!

Ryan’s also the CEO of Bizbuzz Digital, a digital marketing agency that makes marketing simple for small businesses with integrated marketing management software and services. The software helps businesses improve their online listings, drive social media platform engagement, track online analytics across multiple location sites, monitor online reviews, and much more.

Mike and Ryan cover a ton of great stuff in this episode like Ryan’s realization that his college scholarship to play football and pursue an NFL career might not be the dream he once thought it would be, his unique and uncharted path to founding Luxe Brand, and how social media played a large role in Luxe Brand’s inception and continued success, why he believes there are moments where you have to stop making excuses and just go for it, why entrepreneurs need standard processes in place, and much more.
