Your road map to a seven-figure business...in one year or less

By cutting out the noise and providing a clear and proven plan, this road map helps even brand-new entrepreneurs make decisions quickly, get their product up for sale, and launch it to a crowd that is ready and waiting to buy.

This one-year plan will guide you through the three stages to your first $1 million:

The Grind (Months 0-4): This step-by-step plan will help you identify a winning product idea, target customers that are guaranteed to buy, secure funding, and take your first sale within your first four months.

The Growth (Months 5-8): Once you're in business, you will discover how to use cheap and effective advertising strategies to get your product to at least 25 sales per day, so you can prove you have a profitable business.

The Gold (Months 9-12): It's time to establish series of products available for sale, until you are averaging at least 100 sales per day, getting you closer to the million-dollar mark every single day.

Through his training sessions at Capitalism.com, Ryan Daniel Moran has helped new and experienced entrepreneurs launch scalable and sustainable online businesses. He's seen more than 100 entrepreneurs cross the seven-figure barrier, many of whom go on to sell their businesses.

If your goal is to be a full-time entrepreneur, get ready for one chaotic, stressful, and rewarding year. If you have the guts to complete it, you will be the proud owner of a million-dollar business and be in a position to call your own shots for life.

Listened to it twice already

Great book. Loved it. Lots of great tips and things to think about as I attempt getting my business up and running. Only slightly negative thing I could say is: it seemed to be a little too focused on how to build a business that uses Amazon as its sales channel. This is how the author did it, so that’s what he knows. Would be nice to have more tips for people who will not be using Amazon.

Spectacular book! This is life changing for me

I am a 43 year old professional that has been in the consumer packaged goods industry for 20 years. I have had a successful career overall. Since being a kid, I have had an entrepreneurial mindset, but tend to overthink everything, and think my way out of great ideas all of the time for fear of failure. Ryan's story and narration comes across very genuine and honest. I was able to relate to him and was pleased to know I am not alone in my feelings and fears. I appreciate him sharing real stories and $'s for real brands. I feel more motivated and excited now than I ever have before, and have decided to go all in on my product idea. I intend to become one of Ryan's big success stories. Summary = Awesome book!

Must read for anyone entering ecom

I wish I had this book several years ago. I’ve been selling “stuff” online for years and Ryan NAILS why my success has been mediocre at best. I’ve made a living but struggled to build a real, 7 figure business. I also have struggled with feeling unfulfilled. A lot of people ask me how to sell online, from now on I’ll just send them to this book. Seriously. It’s that good. I don’t think you really need anything else. Another note- I listen to a fair amount of marketing gurus and while their info can be great, they often focus heavily on service businesses. Ryan Moran is the Russell Brunson of physical products. I’m well on my way in phase one, the grind! I’ll check back in 12 mos when my business is selling a million per year.

Most Valuable Book I’ve Ever Read!!

The mindset shifts I have had throughout listening to this book are astounding. I am so jazzed up and ready to make some changes to the way I’ve been doing things in my business endeavors. Also, listening to Ryan read it himself is a whole other experience. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has to be an entrepreneur. I’ve read all the popular books like Rich dad poor dad, 4 hour work week, etc. and this one takes the cake. For mindset shifts as well as for actionable steps. Well done Ryan. Well done. 🙏🏼

Made my $1m in 12 months, even in China

Followed Ryan’s approach, one product at a time, started from 04/2017, hit a lit more than $1m by 3/2018. Business did about $7m in revenue in 2018, over $1m/month in the beginning of 2019 before I left. Even, listener/follower from China can do this, maybe you can too? Listened to all his podcasts since 2017, learned a ton. Been to 2019 Dallas CapCon, met Ryan in person, can’t express my great gratitude toward the help he has brought to me over the past 4 years, as a businessman, a leader, also a thought leader. Would definitely recommend his book to people who are thinking about getting started. the Amazon game changed a lot for sure, building a business remains the same, his personal experiences and examples around him will help out a lot for sure.

I wasn’t sure I will like it...

I’ll start by saying that Ryan has been one of my main ‘secret’ mentors through my own Entrepreneurial journey. I discovered his podcast about 3.5 years ago when I was just starting my first eCommerce brand. Right away I was hooked. His mindset, his views on life and his own well documented path really resonated with me. There was an unapologetic honesty about him and the messaging he was sharing with the world. As much as I loved most of his content which I tirelessly consumed and implemented over the years, I honestly did not think I will like this book... I knew his 12 months to a million strategy very well and I was already past that initial explosive growth stage in my own business. I didn’t think I would get much value from reading the book since I have already lived through that process. Still, after hearing some raving reviews from other entrepreneur friends, when my next Audible credit came in, I decided to give his book a try. I am so glad that I did, It captivated me right from the beginning. It was a truly inspirational read (or should I say listen) and at no point have I lost interest or felt that it wasn’t relevant to me. I thought I knew Ryan’s story very well, but the book provided so much more depth and perspective to his journey, which I still find extremely inspirational. So if you are an entrepreneur or you feel a deeper calling inside of you to break out of the chains of a 9 to 5 life, it is definitely a must read! Thank you Ryan for enabling so many of us to get past our own head trash and fears and for providing a clear path to a more fulfilled life. I still hope to meet you some day and shake your hand for helping me through my own struggles on the path to success. Roger

One small idea for the whole book. Nothing interesting.

The idea is that you have to work hard for 12 month to earn a million and then you can relax 🤦‍♀️I bought it just because of Russell’s review, but it wasn’t worth my time. Maybe for complete newcomers it’d be ok.

Loved the “side notes”! Great book!

Super informative. Easy listen. Things to implement today. I especially enjoyed the authors “side notes” that seemed to not be in the written book, but especially for the audio version. Great read!

Good, but a Little Misleading

Ryan is a great story teller, which I am sure comes from learning doing his podcast. The blueprint is pretty sound. The problem is, and Ryan is not alone with this narrative, it about getting to $1M in SALES a year, not actual earnings. Most businesses operate on thin margins, especially with physical products. So $1M in sales === ~ $40k in earnings. Of course the real payout is if you can sell the business in 24-36 months for real capital. You will still need to work about 3000-4000 hours a year. But most business owners do that anyway. The thing I felt Ryan missed was breaking down cost of goods, support services, advertising & marketing, fees and taxes. Would have like more about actual numbers to lend more credibility to the plan.

Insightful!

Loved it, Thanks a bunch. Didn't even plan on starting a business yet, but the mindset behind it is fantastic.
