Ryan Stewman: I First Realized I Was A Leader In The …?

  • To be at the top of your profession is a marker of championship leadership.
  • Ryan got certainty and success in the mortgage business: he had a lot of experience in making money in that business, so he knew he could help people do the same.
  • There are two types of leaders: natural-born leaders and situational leaders. Ryan was situational; he was thrown into a situation in which he HAD to lead people because he KNEW he had a calling in his life to lead and teach people how to make the most of social media.
  • The only way you learn how to move up to becoming a champion is to DO IT.
  • Advertising something you don’t do for yourself is the opposite of what it means to be a champion.
  • Ryan appealed to the larger audience of his profession, even though they don’t fit the standard mold.
  • Ryan really realized he was a leader when he went to church.
    • There was a 10 year period in his life in which he really went all in into the church; however, at one point things happened and his views changed, but that was a great time of his life where he got to explore many aspects of leadership.
  • Leaders usually don’t say “I,” it’s usually “we.”
    • Ryan learned to look to his people as a team, so his team looked to him as a leader.
  • If you need to stand up and announce you’re a leader, usually you’re not.
  • When you’re a leader you know that you need to take credit for all good and bad things that happen.
  • As a leader, people will dump blame on you because they know you can handle the responsibility
  • Leaders will sacrifice in order to ensure the win down the road.
  • What are the steps you took to get to where you are today: whether it’s good or bad?
