2.17 Using Challenges to Cultivate Success with Ryan Pool

Season #2

In this episode, we’re joined by Ryan Pool. Ryan is a high schooler who is taking on the world!

Ryan is an entrepreneur and nationally ranked tennis player. In May, he secured funding from Orange County investors for his most recent business, Tennisify. He serves as an Ambassador for Economics for Leaders and coaches tennis in his spare time. 

Ryan trains hard on and off the tennis court. When not playing, you’ll find him asking questions and soaking up learning opportunities. His mission is to make the world a better place through innovation, using kindness, drive, and curiosity.

Ryan was diagnosed with apraxia of speech at two years old, and dyslexia as a kindergartener. He has big ideas but slow processing time and works hard to understand how to optimize his brain. He’s grateful for his amazing tutors, teachers, and mentors who taught him how to advocate for himself and others.

He recently gave a TEDx talk that you can view here. For more from Ryan, connect with him on Instagram.
