Ryan's Message Lasts


It’s much more than an hour of entertainment. The ideas Ryan speaks about will resonate with your audience for a lifetime.

Ryan's trademarked program Make Your Own Lunch™ is about one thing; Decision.

It's about giving young people the power to decide their future. What they'll have, where they'll go, what they'll do and who they'll be. Then it's about deciding to go get it.

It has nothing to do with the actual preparation of food but everything to do with youth preparing a life that they are excited to be living everyday.

Students leave with a renewed sense of direction, excited about their possibilities and prepared to take their next steps.

Ryan's Book


Helping young people find their path to a successful future-with or without college

College isn't right for everyone. And as tuition costs continue to rise, more and more young people-from straight-A students to the not-so-avid pupils-are choosing an alternative to the 4-year degree. Yet there is little support to help them find their track to a promising future beyond the classroom.

Make Your Own Lunch empowers and guides young people as they search for their answer to the age-old question: "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Readers discover new ways to pursue their interests and gain experience through travel, philanthropy, and more.
