About Ryan

I am Ryan R Lara. This is my website. I have over 15 years of purchasing and supply chain experience focused on cost savings and profit creation. I’ve applied the same in my life for personal finance concentrating on increasing income, decreasing expenses, and reinvesting retained earnings for wealth creation.

I graduated from Walsh College with an MBA. I only write and talk about subjects I think existing content is incorrect, incomplete, or both:

  • Personal Finance
  • Minimalism
  • Succeeding
  • Protecting your finances from hyperinflation and depression
  • Interpersonal Dynamics

My content typically differs from other authors in a number of ways:

  • Tell you what you need to know, not what you want to hear
  • More strategic (big picture) not just tactical
  • More emphasis on risk management and resiliency
  • More real-world examples

I live in Metro Detroit, Michigan. I am married to my wife, Heather, a school social worker and have an adopted dog from Leaderdog from the Blind named Maya. I have a niece Mila and nephews Anthony and Oliver and enjoy spending time with family being a positive masculine role model.
