A Downloadable Audio Course
Recorded Jan. 8 – Sep. 24, 2014
Are you ready to take your transformational business to the next level and significantly increase your income, while making a greater positive impact in our world?
Do you want to grow a business that not only makes profits, but builds deep loyalty, a committed team and changes lives (including your own)?
Do you want to integrate your heart and soul into your business so that you are showing up authentically and fully every day – and encouraging others to do the same?
Are you excited to attract the right customers through marketing that is high-integrity, honest and completely authentic?
Are you curious to learn the best growth strategies for online marketing that allow you to double and triple your reach, impact and your profitability?
Do you want to create a holistic lifestyle that is balanced, exciting and enjoyable – without the burnout so many entrepreneurs face?
If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, you are what we call an “enlightened entrepreneur” – someone who wants to embody your highest values in your business and make a real impact.
You may not even think of yourself as a businessperson, but instead, just someone with a gift who wants to serve on the deepest level possible. That’s beautiful! And, if you have a business where you are charging for your services, you are ALSO an entrepreneur.
But chances are, you didn’t get an MBA or really ever train in business fundamentals, much less the latest in internet marketing, branding, sales funnels, teambuilding or launch strategies.
That’s where the Enlightened Business Academy comes in, which has been created for you and thousands of others like you. It provides key trainings that people like us – committed change-the-world types who never got the training that would help us create thriving, conscious businesses we love.
It’s designed to help you go beyond just building a sustainable business that feeds you and your family (while that’s a great step), to a ROCKIN’ business that wows clients, customers, employees – and even investors.
Why? Because YOU are the kind of person who can help change the world.
The world actually needs you to reach as many people as possible who can benefit from your work, your teaching, your services, your products and your example. The world needs some big changes, and you can truly help.
That’s why we have assembled the creme-de-la-creme of enlightened business teachers – people who have built 6, 7, 8, even 9-figure businesses on truly enlightened principles, with workplace cultures filled with love, marketing that sizzles, triple-bottom-line practices and products that are holistic and beneficial.
They are the leading-edge of a new paradigm of business that not only works better, but is a LOT more fun.
And they want to teach you how to do what they have done, and even surpass them. Because we’re not just training students – we’re training leaders of a whole new way of doing business that is delivering exactly what this world needs. And that means the next wave will go farther than the last.
If you resonate with the above, you’re in the right place. We invite you to join us in a soulful, transformational training like no other, with fellow enlightened entrepreneurs from around the world (who can also become joint venture partners, allies, customers and more).
As an enlightened entrepreneur, you may be confused about the basics of how to run your business. Many of the traditional techniques that others take for granted may seem “old paradigm” to you, and you might find yourself reluctant to employ them. And when you do try them anyway, they may not work as advertised. Why not?
As an enlightened entrepreneur, you want to operate under new rules, be held to a different standard – and actually use sounder methods.
So what specifically distinguishes an enlightened business from a traditional one?
For one, enlightened companies and business leaders are driven to transform themselves and their clients. This energy of purpose infuses everything they do – and everyone they touch feels it. This creates an amazing relationship that goes far beyond what we typically think of as sales and marketing: trying to bribe, seduce or manipulate people into buying.
In short, an enlightened entrepreneur makes his or her deepest intentions CLEAR to employees, customers, allies and investors. And this creates real magic, as people respond enthusiastically to a higher mission, rather than tepidly to a short-term sales gimmick.
That helps you become an enlightened entrepreneur that people trust (and want to do business with). It’s both an inner shift and an outer one – affecting everything from how you position your brand to the products you offer.
And that is just one of many, many shifts needed to bring your business into alignment with your heart and soul in a way that also leads to real growth, impact, and profitability.
The Enlightened Business Academy gives you 9 modules of immersion, support, teachings, and concrete strategies to give you what you need to create a sustainable and successful heart-centered business. Nowhere else can you get in-depth teachings from the premiere teachers of enlightened business, all in one affordable package.
It’s the training that all of us in the first wave of enlightened entrepreneurship wish WE had received when we were getting rolling. It will help you avoid hundreds of expensive mistakes that we’ve made, and empower you to grow organically, naturally and joyfully into your full potential.
The return on your investment can be enormous because once you get the core fundamentals of enlightened business in place in your business you can grown naturally and profitably into your full vision – delivering transformational products and services that can change the world.
Just to be clear, the Academy teachers are many of the SAME teachers that The Shift Network has learned from to create our own mid 7-figure enlightened business in just four years. So we’re giving you exactly what we’ve learned ourselves.
The Enlightened Business Academy is perfect for you if:
You want to create a thriving business that resonates with your true purpose – using step-by-step guidance to optimize how you run and grow your business.
You already have a business and want to increase its financial sustainability and influence through proven methods of successful enlightened business leaders – especially online marketing that can allow you to double or triple your reach and impact.
The Enlightened Business Academy is different than other “toolkit” approaches that make you feel as if you’ve stepped into a sterile business factory, or one that is always enticing you with more dollar signs.
We know that you care about more than dollars – and yet it’s also important to be financially savvy and have a clear understanding of how to drive profit and manage your business. It’s really about an integrated, full-spectrum, holistic approach to success in your mission and your personal life.
Our approach takes you on a journey that will help you grow from the inside out, bring your business into deep alignment with your true purpose, attract your ideal clients, and strategically develop sales and marketing approaches that align with your soul – allowing the right customers to find you.
This course will help you create a business that not only leads you to thrive financially, but also emotionally, mentally and spiritually. And a unique part of this course is that each module will offer tools to help you embody the lessons and strategies that faculty share with you, so that you can walk confidently into your new way of running your business.
The Enlightened Business Academy is a potent transformational business training – including business and marketing strategies, content creation, branding, social media, sales, launch, sustainability, and other resources to help you embody the shift to a conscious way of doing business.
The knowledge, tools and templates given in each month’s training calls are worth many, many thousands of dollars to any business that applies this valuable information.
So you can rest easy knowing that you can build your business step-by-step, using just the information you need to know – when you need to know it!
And all of this happens because you are tapped into a tremendous intelligence that can take care of things in a better way than you can by yourself.
When you tune into that wisdom, and free yourself from the illusion that there is a separation between your business and your higher Self – you become more grounded, productive and profitable.
You begin living the truth that your work represents, which makes all the difference in finding your clients, and creating a thriving business.
Note that while we have nine full modules of content, we also recognize that much of the learning, support and sharing that you do with each other is central to the realization of your biggest dreams. So we include integration and embodiment lessons, peer support and community networking in every aspect of the journey. And we strongly encourage you to share all YOU know from elsewhere – so we’re creating a strong, global learning community.

Taught by Ryan Eliason, Social Entrepreneur Empowerment Network
Recorded July 2nd, 9th,16th (23rd Integration Plus Laser Coaching with Stephen Dinan)

Effective technical strategies are essential to success, but without addressing the psychological level, you’re only going to reach a tiny percentage of your potential.

In this module, you’ll:
- Get clear on exactly who you need to be and the attitudes you need to embody in order to reach your vision.

6 Session Audio Course with Chip Conley
This program is designed to give you the key foundations to be the kind of leader that others respect, trust, and want to work for. This will allow you to attract better talent, retain them and grow them into the kind of leaders who can grow your business for you. These skills are the single most important skills for success as an entrepreneur just starting out or a leader of an established company.
During this program, Chip will share step-by-step strategies for accessing your full leadership potential, which in turn helps you unlock the genius in others.
Chip’s leadership practices can lead to greater professional, financial, emotional, and even spiritual success, leading you to make a bigger contribution and create a more enduring legacy
You can become the kind of leader that others celebrate and trust. We’ll show you how with this program, which will:
- Reveal the "PEAK practices" that successful leaders use and how you can adopt them as well.
- Show how to create sustained growth in your organizations or teams.
- Offer you a more comprehensive operating manual for business grounded in leading-edge psychology.
- Help you foster the conditions for creativity, teamwork, and excellence.
- Provide keys to creating the conditions for people to live their callings – essential for breakthrough organizational success.
- Understand the value of intangibles (the most important asset in the 21st century) and how to measure and apply them in a way that leads to success.
- Hone your skill at moving between being a transactional to being a transformational leader.
- Develop your skills at serving your customer’s higher needs, which builds sales and loyalty.
- Create the sustainable foundations in your life for effective leadership (and great happiness).
The Orientation is optional with the introduction of the PEAK principles being a pivotal part of the session. If you are very knowledgeable in the PEAK principles or have been taught by Chip in another workshop, then you can potentially afford to miss the Orientation...otherwise we highly recommend it and the key subjects will include:
- Chip introduces himself and gives a brief history of his experience as an entrepreneur and CEO as well as how he got introduced to mixing psychology and business
- Overview Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and how it can relate to the business world; Introduction of the Transformation Pyramid
- Review the Relationship Truths Pyramid from Chip’s book PEAK and how it will be relevant to the course
In our first class, we will look at the foundations of PEAK leadership and how they relate to Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and address the two core practices: first, to embody an inherently positive view of human nature and, second, to create the conditions for people to live into callings. Benefits include:
- Review your own sense of human nature and how it shows up subconsciously and consciously in the workplace
- How to create the right “psycho-hygiene” in a company or team, even in a recession
- Take a test that tells you whether you currently have a job, a career, or a calling and how you can apply these findings to others
In our second class, we’ll look at two practices that are particularly important in the 21st century: first, to promote and measure the value of intangibles and, second, learning to move fluidly between being a “transactional” and “transformational” leader. Benefits include:
- Do a diagnostic on your current business as to where value comes from: the tangibles vs. the intangibles
- How to develop metrics for the intangibles in your business (employee meaning, customer evangelism, brand reputation, innovation spirit)
- How to identify and amplify the higher needs in those you are leading
- Understand what portion of your week is taken up by transactional tasks vs. transformational opportunities and how to shift your focus
In our third class, we’ll focus on how as a leader you connect internally and externally: first, to nurture, value, and evolve organizational culture as your differentiator and, second, to calibrate the balance between “conscious” and “capitalism.” Benefits include:
- Understand how to inoculate a culture against fear and create the conditions for organizational health
- How to navigate an economic downturn and emerge with a stronger culture
- Learn how you can make a positive difference in the world while also making a difference on your bottom line
- Understanding and applying the principles of “karmic capitalism” to your benefit
Our fourth class will focus on the next two practices for PEAK leadership: first, focus on your customer’s highest needs and, second, recognize the value of loyalty as a means to success. Benefits include:
- Discovering the deeper motives and drivers in those with whom you do business and learning how to address those deeper motives
- Cultivating intuition in going beyond obvious needs to the unmet needs for customers (the 4 ways you can “mind read” your customers)
- Do a loyalty audit of your organization and learn how you stack up relative to others
- How to foster long-term loyalty in customers (helping teach your company the lifetime value of a customer)
In our final class, we’ll focus on integrating what we’ve learned and understanding the last practice of PEAK leadership, “Lead to PEAK”. Benefits include:
- See how as a leader, you’re always a “sherpa,” carrying people forward by example
- Learn how to incubate other leaders and thus replicate your successes
- Becoming conscious of all the ripples that you make as a leader and making sure they align with your values
- Creating daily practices that help you embody all the principles and practices offered in this course.

Chip and his company’s time-tested techniques and transformational leadership practices have been featured in every major news outlet including TIME, USA Today, Fortune and The Wall Street Journal.
As the preeminent thought leader at the intersection of psychology and business, and a successful practitioner of emotional intelligence at work, Chip shared his unique prescription for success in his bestselling book, PEAK: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow. Based on noted psychologist Abraham Maslow’s iconic Hierarchy of Needs theory, PEAK illustrates how business’s three key stakeholders – employees, customers and investors – are ultimately motivated by peak experiences that address their higher, unspoken needs.
Chip is a highly sought after speaker – from TED to INC to GOOGLE. He has been honored with the highest accolade in the American hospitality industry, the coveted ISHC Pioneer award, and was one of four finalists for Hotels magazine’s "Corporate Hotelier of the World" award. The San Francisco Business Times named Chip the Most Innovative CEO – and JDV the "2nd Best Place to Work" – in the entire Bay Area.

“When we first hired Ryan as our business coach, our start-up company was just a vision combined with a compelling business plan. Eleven months later we have given birth to a growing enterprise, with 30 full-time employees, a factory, a supply chain and a product we’re proud to share with the world. In 2009, we reforested over 200 acres of Ecuadorian rainforest and helped provide right-livelihood to over 600 farmers. Launching a startup is very demanding, and I was out of balance when we started coaching. Ryan helped me to clarify and honor what was most important, and to delegate better. This helped me to stay balanced, healthy and connected to spirit. Ryan’s fundraising tips helped us raise over half a million in seed capital, and his suggestions helped us bring more heart and connection to our board meetings. I am deeply thankful for the coaching experience, and rave about Ryan to everyone that asks. He truly cares about his clients and offers a unique balance of business intelligence and spiritual integrity.”
– Tyler Gage, President, Runa
“Ryan has helped me grow my business from scratch to a healthy six figures in less than a year! But even more than that – beyond the business nuts and bolts he taught me and the accountability he provided as we jumped levels, it’s the depth and sensitivity of Ryan’s emotional support that makes him such a superb coach – and someone I would not be without in my life. As a woman, I would never have thought a man could provide the kind of steadying perspective and insight he always comes up with. As a newbie to business, success can be scary if you’re not used to it, and Ryan has not only led me to success, he’s held my hand through the fearful journey.”
–Rori Raye, relationship coach for women, author of Have The Relationship You Want
“I love Ryan’s ’no-nonsense’ way of taking any emotional ’charge’ out of building a business and breaking it down into simple steps and formulas. When we started working together I was frustrated and doubtful about the viability of my business. I was so grateful to have Ryan help me get my business started, he’s an expert at helping coaches and professionals get their message out there and actually GET CLIENTS! My Life Purpose coaching business is now more than supporting me. I’ve tripled my income. I’m able to travel, write, speak and enjoy my life thanks to this success.”
– Sage Lavine, MA, CLC, Life Purpose & career coaching, From Purpose to Prosperity for Women

I would HIGHLY recommend working with Bryan to anyone looking to grow their business, improve communications and relationships, or strategize the course of your business, or financial and personal life.”

Just a few years later, we grossed $700,000 through online training and coaching programs that have reached more than 50,000 changemakers in 25 countries. Those are just the numbers.
