Hello and welcome!

I'm Ryan W. Decker. These are my thoughts, ideas, and reflections on becoming a master of your craft. 


The first thing you'll notice is that I blog every day. You can subscribe to that blog and get updates delivered to your email for free by clicking here.

It all started with a simple habit

Simple yet important—and certainly not easy.

In 2005 I decided to start a journal. No one told me to, it wasn't something I planned on doing, I just started writing. It's funny, though, if you were to read my collection of journals covering the past 13 years of my life, you would learn very little about what I did on a day-to-day basis. But you would absolutely read about what I was learning, observing, and thinking. I guess I have always been somewhat "reflective." I used my journal as a way to navigate my life. Fast forward to today, I still write about a lot of different things. You can view the list of categories and topics I write about here. But I like to look at my blog as more than about marketing, sales, or strategy. Because it's also about the things I notice and observe on a daily basis. It's about the frustrations and successes of the modern workplace. It's about why we do what we do and how we can do it more effectively. It's about why some people succeed and why some don't. It's about why some ideas spread and some don't. But most of all, it's about you.  

Which is why I try to raise way more questions than I attempt to answer. Because there are just some things you should answer for yourself. 

My goal is this: to help you achieve your goals. Because that's what life's about. It's about meeting people and making their lives better. It's about giving, embracing generosity and making others more successful.

Now, who is Ryan Decker?

Well, I'm a lot of things. I'm a blogger, marketer and sales professional, but I also write books, create online courses and coach people. I'm a husband, a Mormon, and a minimalist. And finally, in my spare time, you can catch me riding my bike, cooking, reading a book, or traveling somewhere. 

Hopefully, we can be friends. I want to learn about you and listen to your stories. I want to know how else I can help you. So please connect with me on social media, or even email me. I'll do my best to respond.

You can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or (preferably) LinkedIn where I post most of my writing. Follow me on Instagram where I post about my travels, bike rides, and a number of other random things.

Thank you for being here!
