Q and A with Ryan from Los Angeles, California
“Give that little girl the love you wanted when you were young.”
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: I’m passionate about women getting what they want in their marriages! There are far too many messages out there telling us we should be just satisfied with things like good smelling laundry and a husband that has a low IQ…it’s not true! We are meant for so much more and our marriages were meant for so much more than just existing together. I found my passion through the work I did on myself and how it changed my marriage. I also used to do wedding stationery and thought it was odd that so many of my brides were confiding in me and asking me for help with non-stationery related things in their relationship. I’m currently working on helping the women in my group as much as I can! It can be found here: (www.marriedandmanifesting.group)
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: Growing up, my parents fought quite a bit. I promised myself that I would never fight with whoever I married. What I didn’t realize was that it caused me to become a people pleaser and I had to learn the hard way how to come out of that. I went to school for graphic design and used my degree for a while but then pivoted over into coaching when I felt called.
Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?
A: Your childhood doesn’t have to define you. Give that little girl the love you wanted when you were young. She’ll start helping you move forward instead of sabotaging your every move with her tantrums and fears.
Q: What does feminism mean to you?
A: I’m actually not a huge fan of feminism when it comes to hating men, but my version of feminism is wanting to lift other women up to know how powerful they really are. We have something special, and women everywhere should know so that they can allow themselves to pursue what they want and stop just ‘doing what they’re told.’
MORE ABOUT RYAN: I LOVE DOGS. SERIOUSLY! I was born in Virginia but immediately moved to Rhode Island and lived there until I was 13. We then moved to South Carolina (where I later met my husband in high school). I lived in SC through college then got married and moved to Kentucky. My husband got a job offer three years later that moved us to Florida. After having our first baby and becoming homesick, we moved to North Carolina. But then we got tired of being too close to family and wanted more adventure, so after our second baby was born, we moved to California!
