When was the last time you took a good look in the mirror and re-evaluated the way you look? Let’s face it – women often do this more than men – but men need to look good too! On this episode of Inspired Insider, you’ll hear from entrepreneur and innovator Ryan Lane. In his conversation with Jeremy, Ryan opens up about his experience as a minister, why he started Dream Beard, challenges he has faced along the way, plans for the future, and much more. You don’t want to miss a minute of this powerful episode featuring Ryan’s story! 

Did you know that some of the best inventions come from common issues that people face every day? It’s true! The best business ideas come when you marry your innovation with a common need. Ryan Lane’s big idea came when he decided to work on growing his beard by rubbing lotion into it – the problem was – it didn’t smell very good. At the instance of his wife – Ryan had to find a different solution – that is when Dream Beard was born! Ryan has since built a business helping men care for their beard with high-quality beard oil. 

It is really tough to look your best when you get mixed messages from society. Guys often get flack for looking either too good or too sloppy – it’s a lose-lose situation! What if there was a business focused on helping men look their best without overdoing it? That’s where Dream Beard steps in! From high-quality beard oil to promote beard growth and health to beard brushes and hairspray – Dream beard is making a huge impact! You can learn more about these stellar grooming products by visiting the Dream Beard website located in the resources section. 

One of the best ways to stand out as a business is to show your customers that they matter. Too often, companies get so focused on making a profit that they forget they are selling to people! Your customers don’t want to be treated like just another number on a spreadsheet – they want to know that you care. Ryan Lane has a great approach to customer service at Dream Beard – he writes, “Thank You” notes to his customers by hand. What can you learn from Ryan’s story? How will you make your business stand out from the competition?
