022: Ryan Masters of The Workout Corner | How He Saved his Family Business and Built a Fitness Empire

smart business revolution podcast, entrepreneurship, small business, entrepreneurToo many small family businesses have become casualties of the down economy over the past few years.

Ryan Masters’ family business almost met that dire fate. Six years ago, Ryan’s father was running a small furniture business outside of Washington D.C. that was struggling to keep up.

At the time, the company had many liabilities: it had no website, the products were expensive and aimed at a high end market, and all the furniture was manufactured in the U.S.

Ryan stepped in and brought the company into the 21st century, using tools like Google Adwords to generate more business. He turned the company around and they were eventually able to sell it instead of shutting it down, which had once seemed all but certain.

Ryan Masters, The Workout CornerToday, Ryan runs a popular fitness website and Youtube channel called “The Workout Corner” and helps private clients to use online marketing techniques to grow their businesses – just like he did for the family business.
