Meet Ryan Mathews of High Ticket Empire in Irvine

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ryan Mathews.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Ryan. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I am most known for my success in drop shipping and digital marketing; however, I did not initially expect my work to expand to the magnitude it has recently. At first, business was just a way for my 16-year-old self to make some extra money and that as far as it went.

In the spring of 2018, I found drop shipping. I began to get hammered with YouTube ads that introduced me to this new business model, one where it did not matter that I was only 16. My whole paradigm of business changed because dropshipping has no ceiling. I made multiple stores to then only close them weeks later. The process of learning, testing, and repeating is one I got very accustomed to. The first five months of dropshipping were not extremely successful, but they were essential to what would come next.

The whole business “DIY” idea just came from straight survival. I remember there was a time where everything hit the fan in a single week. Most of my personal relationships fell apart in a matter of days. My mind shot into pure desperation, but this is where I would get the most done. I was now back to googling “how to make money as a teenager” just starving to get results fast. This was the biggest turning point of anything I had done before. My mindset was shifted and I needed to take a leap of action.

After a few days of scavenging for a way to get me out of the rut I was in, I found @dotcomnate, a high ticket drop shipping guru. Nate was the one who taught me his strategies and would later become one of my closest partners.

Throughout the first few months of working with Nate, I made my own stores and began to see results fast. High Ticket e-Commerce is the business model that worked for me and one I have stuck with ever since.

The number one thing that I think helped me make something out of the online business realm was really just self-belief. I was extremely optimistic and willing to learn and improve. This was fundamental to making anything out of entrepreneurship.

Has it been a smooth road?
It definitely has not been a smooth road, as Elon Musk-the founder and CEO of Tesla-says: “Starting a business is like swallowing broken glass” and I couldn’t agree more. In the beginning and even down the line, road bumps come up. Stress, worry, and failure are all side effects of starting a business. If I would have invested into training sooner, it would have made for a much smoother road. Having someone to help you, who have already completed the process, makes it a hundred times smoother and more efficient.

Another aspect that made it much harder to get anywhere was everyone telling me to be realistic. No one really saw the full potential except for me. The whole concept of “being realistic” is horrible. We live in a new age where technology has opened doors for everyone. There is really no excuse or reason why we cannot learn and achieve anything. We all have endless connections and information at our fingertips. I encourage anyone who is surrounded with negativity to just drown it out. Just because it’s a dream that hasn’t happened yet does not mean it isn’t realistic. Just know that hard work will get you to where you want to go and your aspirations are 100% possible.

Despite the rough roads I am beyond grateful and content with where this journey has led me and thankful for every trial along the way that was an essential part of the process. I cannot wait to see where all of this goes in the next few years.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Our new method of drop shipping is much different than the traditional way that everyone uses. We focus on building real businesses rather than quick cash flow. This actually results in much more cash flow down the road. Business is all about solving people’s problems, and that’s all we do. We connect the dots and provide a solution. Our main goal, which is what sets our form of drop shipping from others, is to solve problems and provide value.

Besides my own businesses; Nate Hurst, Clayton Williams, and I also provide unique training to people trying to learn how to make a massive success online. We are most proud of people we have taught and their results. I swear it is ten times better to see someone you taught get results rather than yourself. Our methods really do get more results than any other drop shipping guru’s.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
This is the best part about dropshipping. You can literally work from anywhere as long as you have Wifi. Drop shipping is for anyone and everyone who is willing to learn and work hard. Training such as ours at the High Ticket Empire has made it possible for anyone to learn the skills needed to build a profitable business in a matter of weeks regardless of where you reside in.
