Book Endorsements

Forgive Ryan Allis for being only 22 years old. Forgive him for imparting timeless wisdom based upon his own real-life experience as a entrepreneurial superstar. The kid just can't help it. He has made a million-dollar dream come true and he shares how he did it this roller-coaster-of-a-read book. Your banker will love you for reading Zero to One Million.

Jay Conrad Levinson

Author, "Guerrilla Marketing" series of books

Ryan Allis shares and intriguing story of business success that has few parallels. I know of no other twenty two year old who has demonstrated this level of achievement in business. Young people need individuals like Ryan to look up to and emulate as they work to accomplish their own personal and business goals.

Ryan is an incredibly inspiring combination of big thinker, executer, and strategist. When he talks, I listen, and every time I get incredible wisdom that has impact.

Book Reviews

Love the book - not like... LOVE! Haven't put it down since it arrived. Mission accomplished - you've inspired me! My goals, mission and creed are framed and on the wall. I love the MAR Model for evaluating business ideas. You manage to get all this stuff that I've known about for years and somehow get me to act on it, be excited about it, and get results! Thank you!

I haven't been intending to promote this book, but I just keep raving about it to people. I most often say, "One of the references on the book says 'Ryan is the next Robert Kiyosaki,' and they're absolutely right." It's not that I'm putting Ryan on a pedestal or anything, it's just that his writing gets me into action. It took me a few weeks (instead of a day) to read the book because I kept DOING what he was talking about. I came away from each chapter not only having my thoughts cleared, but with an action plan and an elevated spirit, fire in my heart, wind at my heels, ready to get on with it.

I like Zero to One Million a lot. I like the style. It is easy to read - even for me. You have done a great job of picking up on the copy writing nuances that make a piece impossible to put down.

Most books of this genre are great motivational books, but are simply that. Zero to One Million is a tool for anyone who has ever dreamt of starting a business. It has the aspects of all the other books, plus practical instructions, how-tos and resources. The 100 Steps to Building a Business is in itself worth the price of the book. It gives you the motivation to get you going and the step-by-step details to keep you going. I definitely recommend this book to anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit, product idea or desire to start a business.

I received Zero to One Million a few days ago - it was awesome. I spent the better part of the night (when I was supposed to be sleeping) reading it. I was doing the old flashlight under the covers trick since I had to be up at 6:00 the next morning for school, and mom would have sent me to bed had she known. No matter - I felt it was good preparation (after reading your 'day in the life of an entrepreneur) for me becoming an entrepreneur. I really wanted to thank you for that book and let you know that you have made a difference in one life. All books I had read previously (Kiyosaki, Robert G Allen) while containing good information had left me still a little confused as to where I was going. After reading your book, there was no doubt in my mind. I am going to be an entrepreneur - and a successful one. I really liked your book's down-to-earth style with practical examples. Thanks a million (pun intended).

I just finished reading Zero to One Million on Monday night. You've done a great job. I got a lot out of it. Your book came along at just the right time, because I was wondering what sort of marketing and promotion I should concentrate on next. I've tried putting a few ads in targeted newsletters, and a few other things, but have had very limited success. So I'm going to follow your advice about focusing on SEO, affiliate marketing and email marketing.

In my view, there is something to be gained from studying Ryan’s system. It’s one of the most effective promoting machines I’ve ever seen put together, no less from a 21 year-old. Execution is a key attribute of business success and I think in a lot of ways Ryan’s tips display what it takes to get things done, make things happen and to use a “system” to manage that process.

Mike Jay

Hi Ryan, I am on page 59 so far. I had no idea that there were other people that thought the same way I do, and under the age of 45. You opened my eye on trade a lot. What you had to say about comparative advantage makes sense. It makes me understand our relationship with China and the rest of the world. It just makes more sense. Before I knew the more we traded was good but I did not understand how it made even the consuming nation richer. As I have been reading it has been like looking into me self and my own hopes and dreams for the world. Your book is very inspiring and amazing. I want my own dreams more now than before. Thank you.

I think one of the best ways to learn is by example and that is what is so beautiful about Zero to One Million. I believe that the way to becoming successful in life is to study those who are. In this book not only does Ryan teach you so much about the history of economics and business, but he shares every step of how he got to where he is today.

Zero to One Million is a very informative book that any future entrepreneur or anyone planning to start a business of their own should read and benefit from. I found the information easy to read and follow and, more importantly, easy to put into practice. Mr. Allis was able to provide me with a step by step guide on how to not only get started with a business, but also how to maintain and grow it. I would highly recommend this book to anyone just starting out with a business of their own or any small business owners looking for an extra "edge" to stimulate growth. The web marketing ideas and information on search engine optimization were of immense value to me in my job. Zero to One Million is definitely a must buy!

Malcolm Young

This book is not a get rich quick guide, it is a handbook that you will continue to use as a reference and it is a book that will instill important business concepts. One of the most important aspects of being an entrepreneur is confidence. As I read this book, I found myself more and more confident in the goals that I had set for myself, and the business that my partners and I were in the process of starting. Ryan clearly outlines the steps to starting a business, and provides a very informative section devoted to search engine optimization. This book should be read by anyone who has a desire to start a business, and has a pro-active attitude towards life. It is great to know that someone of Ryan's age could be so business-savvy, self-disciplined, and biased towards action... that is empowering. Thank you Ryan, for sharing your experience and simplifying mine.

After reading Zero to One Million and implementing the strategies and techniques in Mr. Allis's book, my business revenue has almost tripled in a short 4-months time. I am the CEO of a nutraceutical corporation and interact with CEO'S from companies in the USA and Internationally. I can honestly say I have tried multiple methods and hired multiple marketing and management teams in the past, spending hundreds of thousands of dollars with little to no results.

I've known Ryan for almost four years now. He has done tremendous work for me and I am happy to own and have read Zero to One Million. If you have not read this book yet I will explain why you should... Ryan was not a dot com millionaire, he was not "one of those kids your neighbor knows" when he made his first million, in fact he's not even a computer geek. He's only 21, but let Ryan introduce himself to you in the first chapters, he'll earn your respect before you can sit it down. Ryan's been in the business world long enough to know there is no 'inside information' that helps people like him succeed. Ryan was born with an unnatural ability to visualize an entire business, from the first customer to the millionth. His perspective provides readers a roadmap in which they learn how he did it, and how he continues to do it. Zero to One Million explains 'it.' When I met Ryan at age 17, he had not only visualized his first business, he had grown it into a million dollar operation. Zero to One Million is priceless for two reasons: 1) Ryan's detailed path of personal and professional development shows how a great entrepreneur was made and will instill confidence and direction in anyone with dreams, 2) Ryan is an expert at creating systems, the pages of Zero to One Million are a written key of the systematic procedures (previously contained only in his head) he uses to organize his bias-toward-action that leads him to success in multiple business ventures. In closing, if you're an entrepreneur with a dream, or if you dream of being an entrepreneur, read Zero to One Million (borrow it from a friend if you can't afford it) and let Ryan push you off that ledge. You'll be prepared for whatever is next.

Ryan, you inspire me man. I read your book about a year ago and it was an incredible source of affirmation that I have been desperately searching for. I've always known that I have the true entrepreneurial spirit, but have never had an influence that has told me to go for it. So I stepped it up and in your words had a bias toward action. I found opportunity and seized it and things are looking better every day. I've never been happier in my entire life. Keep rocking man.

I bought your book back in 2003 and I have to thank you so much for continuing to inspire me in my business endeavors. I just wanted to thank you so much for inspiring me to set large sales goals. I continue to view your site at both zeromillion.com and ryanallis.com. And thanks for the signed copy of your book you sent me (I have #82). It is sitting on my bookshelf right next to the Trump books.

Speech Feedback

I have seen over 50 of the country’s leading business and motivational speakers including Guy Kawasaki, Brian Tracy, Robert Kiyosaki, Zig Ziglar, and Donald Trump speak in person. Ryan Allis’ speaking skills and depth of knowledge put him right up there with the best. For anyone, that’s quite an accomplishment. For a twenty-two year old, it’s incredible. I have a feeling that Ryan Allis will be a household name within the next decade. Keep your eyes open!

I enjoyed your presentation at CEO conference in Orlando and our conversation about solving poverty and encouraging entrepreneurship in developing countries. This is a topic of a special interest for me since I am from Russia and know exactly the problems that need to be solved. I am also reading your book Zero to One Million and it is very encouraging for me. I also have to thank you for putting together the site zeromillion.com. It has an enormous wealth of information for all beginning and aspiring entrepreneurs. I couldn't believe that actually I can find answers to my questions all in one place!

I have to let you know how much your speech at the Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization Conference in Chicago has completely inspired me. My girlfriend and I have decided to start our own company and look forward to gaining insight knowledge from your book. I look forward to reading it and hope that maybe you can help us out with any questions. Thanks again, and good luck with all of your future endeavors.

Carol and I wanted to thank you for teaching the course in Money and Economics. Your age and unique experience delivers a message that really connected with the kids. At this age the content is not as important as the way it is presented. You clearly held their attention and gave them a role model that I am sure will make a positive impact. I know it takes time to prepare a course and you clearly invested a lot of effort. The lectures were a great combination of knowledge and examples based on real world experience. You have a brilliant future ahead of you and I appreciate your sharing with our kids.

I just wanted to say thanks for speaking yesterday at the conference. I took away the most from your session. I've always known I wanted to start my own business someday but it wasn't until yesterday when I realized how much and with your book, which I have already started to read, I feel like it is a great start for me to find out how. Most of all I really enjoyed your ambition to want to help others, it really is a driving force in my life also. Yesterday I was writing down a list of goals, one of those being to get to know you better. You are a real inspiration and I know I will open a business much sooner than I ever thought I could just because of you and someday I will be out there helping you change the world by helping others.

Gabe F.

It was really nice to meet you in Chicago. You are more than a successful person. You know the meaning of humanity. I appreciate the time you took to talk to me. I hope you never lose that nice personality. You are now a model of life to me and you inspire me to fight for my dream. I have talked about you with my sisters and have used you as an example of a successful and humble young man that is our age. I will have my own business some day and I will ask hey do you remember me? You inspired me to do this.

Maria Ruiz

Hey Ryan. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to write me back. Thank you for the advice as well, I will definitely remember it. Right now, every second I get whether it be a lunch break or when things are slow at work, I try to read as much of your book as possible. You are truly and inspiration to me as well as too many others, and the fact that you take time to care for all those around you really says a lot about who you are as a person. thanks again for the priceless information and inspiration you have given me. I too, as you do, plan on making a positive impact on our society.

Ryan, I just wanted to commend you and everyone involved in your business. It is inspiring to see young successful entrepreneurs. I've been in corporate America for the last 4 years, and have been laid off, and recently hired ( it's a tough commute though). This experience was an eye-opener for me. I hope to make my current job my last corporate job, and work towards becoming a business owner. Great site, and keep up the good work!

I love your Young Entrepreneurship Herald. Very inspiring to read and very informational. Looks like you could be the only young entrepreneur that has not gone crazy with information like entrepreneurmag.com or youngbiz.com. You are probably the only one that gets down to what is important and not a lot of glitz and glam information regarding your website, very clean and precise. I am going to be sticking to your website and get as much information I can and keep up with updates.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for all your inspirational words and writings. I am a 24 year old guy and have been obsessed with Entrepreneurship since I was about 15 or so. I am constantly reading and researching business ideas and latest trends. I have amassed quite a collection of e-books, magazines and hard cover books, but most of them lacked one thing, the bluntly honest truth of taking action. You see up until about a month ago all these books and magazines haven't done anything to make me start on my path of freedom and independence through entrepreneurship. I how have! Finding your site, reading your blogs and watching interviews you have done have now made me act. When I saw the interview which you did for TrueNYC when you were 21, you were asked about your interviewing of hundreds of entrepreneurs and what you found through that, you said you found that, to be successful, one needs a bias towards action. This really stuck with me and I am now making my move towards starting that long planned business.

I have been searching the net for good entrepreneurship resources and have been having little luck, that is until I found your zeromillion.com website. You are totally inspirational and are clearly a brilliantly gifted entrepreneur. Well done on your achievements so far- truly amazing!! Your book and concept really covers entrepreneurship from a young person's perspective. I read about 12 of your articles in 10 mins flat. Its one thing to read Richard Bransons autobiography of how he started Virgin in the 70's but its another to hear it from some1 a year younger than me! Your life story is up-to-date and relevant, you are getting out there and grabbing life by the horns-brilliant!

I'm really impressed by your profile, it's quite encouraging. See back in africa, we can only dream about some of these things.

I'm simply amazed at the extent of what you've done. It looks almost impossible. You are such a wonder to the world. I'm a native of Nigeria and I heard that you are coming for a conference in Nigeria in August. I will definitely be there for the YDEF conference. I will like to meet you personally when you come for the conference. I would like you to be my mentor because I recognize the power of mentorship. It's so great to see very young people achieving feats that even the old would aspire to achieve.

May I take a moment to demonstrate how much I am proud of your efforts to take the entrepreneurship discussion to such a great level. Once I saw your site, I was astonished with it. I became even more astonished when I learned that the founder is 19 years old. Most astonishingly was that you, though young, wrote Zero to One Million. This builds the confidence for the young entreprenuers and shows them the potential they have in developing their strengths and how they can translate them into economic gains for themselves and their communities. I have read your message and totally agree with you. As Somalilanders (northern part of the former Somalia) this message is quite applicable to our situation.

I just can't believe what I have learned from you so far. I am 29 years old working as an Assistant Systems Administrator at PriceWaterhouseCoopers in Tanzania. I have a good library of good business books but am missing one which I cannot wait to read, Zero to One Million by Ryan Allis.
