For Ryan Engh, a 21st-century digital media consultant and expert in credit card and investing, it took realizing that the education system had failed him for him to launch his company. He was born to Natalie and Andy Engh in Bethany Beach, Delaware. Ryan attended public school and played baseball for EvoShield Canes, an elite travel baseball program best known for producing top-level recruits before turning 18. However, Ryan graduated with a lower GPA, and he had to attend High Point University for baseball. It was at college, while he juggled academics with baseball, that he founded the social media tech start-up Entrepreneurship Empire Inc.
With his company Entrepreneurship Empire Inc, Ryan has gone on to help celebrities and real estate investors build their social media brand through in-depth storytelling while helping his clients receive up to 20 million impressions on platforms like Facebook and Instagram. By the time he turned 19, he had dropped out of High Point and focused on his start-up and, at the same time, specializing in travel hacking and gaming the credit card system. Ryan operates to help young entrepreneurs looking to grow and build and people who want to invest in themselves.
Ryan notes that Over the next year, he got over 20 credit cards, built over $100,000 in credit lines, and traveled to diﬀerent cities for meetings. Along the way, he learned how to do ultra-luxury things like private jets, suites, and luxury rental-cars for cheap. He also started working with inﬂuencers and building their credit, which has helped him build an impressive following.
Daily, Ryan takes advantage of his credit lines to invest in different ventures (which are not limited to e-commerce stores, real estate, or start-ups).
On his motivation, he said, “I was motivated to get into my business because I was always interested in learning tactical things that apply to everyday life. I am very goal and completion-driven, but I had a goal to be a professional athlete in school. I was lucky enough to have the experience of playing D1 Baseball and seeing what that life was preparing me for that I didn’t want.” Ryan says.
He describes himself as someone who loves education and learning but hates the system. He believes that many people stop learning the day they graduate or leave school, and that alone is a failure of the school system. Realizing that people can be influenced by what they see, he knew he had immense power on his hands. He uses Instagram to serve this purpose, pivoting his followers’ attention to what he considers essential.
On his five-year plan, Ryan said, “My next project is making a big push in the media space to get everyone’s attention on education with a focus on applicable principles such as credit.” And he hopes for more people to know about him in the coming years.
