7-figure Bootstrapper, International Speaker, Top Podcaster & Part-time Sword Fighter
LOOKING FOR AN AWARD WINNING ENTREPRENEUR AS A SPEAKER OR PODCAST GUEST?
In 2006, Ray quit his high paying job as a software engineer in the US to work as a volunteer for almost no pay helping indigenous communities in southern Mexico.
After that life changing experience he started on his entrepreneurial journey which led him to create multiple, 6 and 7-figure online businesses.
He now shares what he learned from all of those experiences with audiences at conferences around the world and in podcasts with the hope to inspire others to “throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover“
