How to Create a Life You Love in One Year

This week’s guest on Stay Grounded is Ryan Allis, serial entrepreneur, author of the new book “Magic Year,” and founder of Hive, a global community of over 3000 purpose-driven leaders and entrepreneurs collaborating to create a better world

Ryan has dedicated his life to finding inner happiness, optimal health, and meaning. After building and selling his first company for $170 million in his twenties, Ryan embarked on a 12-year adventure across 40 countries.

Out of this exploration emerged Ryan’s mission – to empower people to design the life of their dreams and make a positive impact. He distilled his learnings into the principles in his latest book, Magic Year: A Book of Joy. Magic Year promises readers they can transform their lives in just 12 months by following Ryan’s guidance across all areas – purpose, goals, habits, relationships, love, sex, money, happiness, health, family, and more.
