The pandemic has drastically changed the world, shutting down businesses and lowering the economy. While certain people can find jobs and continue putting food on their table thanks to the convenience of the internet, others are not so fortunate.
A business owner from Texas named Ryan Kearns has been fully aware of this problem and is finding ways to create as many as 1,000 jobs. He is also giving 10% of his company’s profits to donate to charities and churches that give directly back to the homeless, drug addicts, and mentally ill.
Ryan’s selflessness came from his father, Steve Kearns’ example. Steve graduated from high school in the 1970s and worked as hard as he could to get a promotion. In that position, he could hire all his friends and family who shared his goal of changing the world for the better. Unfortunately, Steve passed away from a combination of chronic pain, opioid addiction, and mental health issues.
He learned the ropes on running a business from watching Steve run a courier company as he grew up. Inspired by his father and grandfather, Ryan would later start a direct sales & marketing company at the age of 21. His company worked alongside its client ATT to unravel its U-verse campaign through direct sales.
By 2015, he ventured into other industries, starting Fly Low Inc and Auto Dent Company. Shortly after, Ryan founded Steve-O’s Last Wish after his father to commemorate his legacy. His company Fly Low Inc specializes in customer acquisition and brand recognition for local businesses across the United States.
Auto Dent Company is a professional auto dent repair company that specializes in auto hail repair. Ryan took what he learned from ATT regarding customer management and customer service and applied it to Auto Dent. The company uses a common technique in the auto storm restoration industry called Paintless Dent Repair (PDR).
Their customer service often updates and educates their customers to let them know how the vehicle is being fixed and the expected duration. Since its opening in Houston, Texas, Auto Dent has relocated to Dallas-Fort Worth and also opened a location in Kansas City. The company grew to become the best auto dent repair company in Kansas City’s service area.
With such a productive and high income-generating company, one might think that the success got into Ryan’s head. However, he and his companies don’t care about the money. Instead, they care about people and how they feel. He is also partnering with companies from around the globe to do a “giveaway” in the form of a scavenger hunt to see which team can collect the most trash by weight, with the winners getting cash prizes.
Ryan helps people create visions for their own lives and help them realize those visions through business development, goal-setting, and charitable causes. One example is how they recently helped an 11-year-old girl named Summer start her scrunchies selling business. Because of them, Summer can now teach her friends to make money.
