Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Patrick Ryan, Founder of Wingman For You, located in Roseville, CA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

We help men find the woman of their dreams by teaching them how to approach women confidently. Can you imagine how bad someone would feel if they thought they found the "right" person but blew the conversation?

Finding the "right" person is difficult. We help men improve the conversation so that the other person will feel emotionally connected, which improves the likelihood of building a relationship with the person they think is or could be the "right" person.

Our "ideal" customers and clients are professional men who require assistance searching, approaching, and dating women. Our clients are constantly experiencing loneliness, discomfort, disconnectedness, loss of enjoyment, and even depression.

Tell us about yourself

Before meeting my wife, I was single for nine years. During this time, I met and dated more than 250 women. As a naturally curious person, I asked almost all of these women what good and bad experiences they encountered in dating.

Here are the top 3 answers:

  1. Men would only talk about themselves and rarely ask questions.
  2. Men would show up disheveled, appearing as if they had just rolled out of bed.
  3. Many men lack self-confidence, which women find sexy in men, confidence.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Surviving the pandemic.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Uncertainty is one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Collaborate with other business owners.
  2. Expect to spend money well before making profits.
  3. Focus on service and people.
