Ryan Blair is a self-made millionaire, CEO & Founder of the global healthy lifestyle company, ViSalus, a corporate officer of NYSE BTH, and New York Times Bestselling author of Nothing To Lose, Everything To Gain. At just 21 years old, Blair founded his first company, 24/7 Tech, and by the age of 36, he had founded and sold numerous businesses for hundreds of millions of dollars.
Blair's biggest endeavor to date has been the overhaul of ViSalus, the company behind the wildly successful weight and fitness transformation platform, Body by Vi Challenge™. In 2008, as CEO, Blair personally invested his last million on a new business model that would later revolutionize the 118 billion dollar direct selling industry. Direct Selling News named ViSalus in the Top 21 largest reported direct selling global companies. In 2012, ViSalus' sales increased from $393 million to $623.5 million, and in March 2013, ViSalus announced its billionth dollar sold since the company's establishment in 2005. Currently, ViSalus is continuing its rapid growth, with expansion into several countries in 2014. With this global reach, ViSalus will uphold its mission to take weight off the world.
Not only a successful businessman, but a master of personal reinvention, Blair effectively imparts lessons learned from obstacles faced growing up as a gang member and provides a road map for entrepreneurial success in Nothing To Lose, Everything To Gain: How I Went From Gang Member To Multimillionaire Entrepreneur. Both hardcover and paperback versions debuted as #1 New York Times Bestsellers and reached bestseller positions in USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, and Inc. Magazine.
In 2014, Blair debuted Nothing To Lose: The Documentary, which follows his inspirational story as he overcame challenges and adversity, from his childhood spent in a gang, through his success and tell-all book, as well as his current personal hurdles while building ViSalus into a household brand. The documentary won the Best Producer award at the Beverly Hills Film Festival and Best Documentary at the Los Angeles Art-House Film Festival.
Blair is a Forbes contributor and frequently appears as a business expert on national television networks such as NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, Bloomberg TV, CNN, and Fox. He is also regularly featured in major publications including Inc. Magazine, Fortune Magazine, BusinessWeek, The Wall Street Journal, and Financial Times. Ryan took a turn in movie production serving as Executive Producer of Man in the Glass: The Dale Brown Story, an award-winning documentary about the legendary LSU basketball coach.
