Putting People First: Ryan Kearns Continues to Provide Opportunities During These Trying Times

In a time when the financial sector is at an impasse, people start to brace themselves for the much-dreaded effect of a moribund economy. That is, losing the ability to provide meals on their tables. The pandemic has negatively impacted various companies, which resultantly forced some of them to close down. The gravity of the companies’ misfortunes inevitably rippled through their workforce, leaving them afraid and without jobs.

As the numbers for the unemployed continue to increase, some businesses refuse to stay idle. And with a mind that exudes resilience and grit, Ryan Kearns took it upon himself to shudder the brilliance within him and help alleviate the people’s struggles amid these trying times.

Ryan Kearns, who is known for his heart of gold, has gained recognition for his noble pursuits towards helping people. Unlike other ambitious individuals, Ryan defines success as having the power to transform the world into a better place. With this ingrained in his mind, Ryan set out to create avenues that would open more doors of opportunities for people.

Born and bred with the values of resilience, compassion, and benevolence, Ryan owes his present virtuous stance to his late father. Although his father’s death was ill-fated, he left with Ryan a pair of large-sized shoes to fill when he passed away. But Ryan gladly wore it with fervent eyes and continued his father’s legacy – running Steve-O’s Last Wish. 

However, Ryan’s noble sense of purpose did not start when his father died. It began when Ryan was still at a young age. When he graduated from high school in the 1970s, his goals were already set in stone. While others’ goals in life depend on the money that they would make, Ryan’s aspirations are more massive than coinages and banknotes. His mission was to harness the ability to provide jobs for the people around him.

Clothed with a zeal to improve the lives of many, Ryan worked hard to get to where he wanted to be. When the time came that he was given the power to provide job opportunities, he was able to assist more people than he could have ever dreamt of. The vigor in helping revitalized him, so he set out to build more avenues that were completely aligned with his vision.

Inspired by his father and grandfather, he became an entrepreneur in 2015, and launched  two companies designed to prioritize people and their most pressing needs – Fly Low Inc. and Auto Dent Company.

Fly Low Inc. is a company that specializes in customer acquisition and brand recognition for local businesses throughout the United States. On the other hand, Auto Dent Company is a fully licensed and insured auto dent repair company that concentrates on repairing the car’s seemingly irreversible body damage. While these companies are built to assist small businesses and repair car problems, respectively, it is in these companies’ ability to provide jobs for people that fuels Ryan the most. Especially with the threat of the ongoing health crisis, Ryan is more motivated to keep his businesses afloat.

What Ryan has achieved throughout his life has proven that anything can happen if one makes it happen. With everything that he has done for the sake of humanity amidst the pandemic, he wishes to serve as an inspiration for like-minded individuals to follow suit and help spark change despite the challenges.

HBCU Seed on Its Way to Create an HBCU Ecosystem Community

CEO Terrel “T-Time” Davis is orienting his venture capital and private equity firm, HBCU Seed, to one day create an HBCU Black Wall Street ecosystem community. The firm, HBCU Seed, is one of the first black-owned HBCU venture capital firms and private equity firms that will provide funding and resources to HBCU universities. HBCU Seed will primarily invest in businesses owned by HBCU students, alumni, faculty, and staff.

HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), are US institutions of higher education established to educate African-Americans. Davis is a proud graduate of Oakwood University, an HBCU institution, where he earned a degree in accounting. During his studies and work as a student entrepreneur, he discovered a lack of resources, services, and funding.

Having experienced and witnessed these problems in the community, Davis started HBCU Seed. The company was founded on the idea that all HBCU schools would unite to collectively put a large sum of investment funding together to provide entrepreneurship services and resources and to invest in the HBCU community.  

Through HBCU Seed’s partnership with the HBCU Foundation, businesses vetted by the Foundation’s entrepreneurship center consortium, and that have received services and resources from one of the centers, will be able to receive venture capital. Davis envisions allowing all 107 HBCUs to become equity partners in HBCU seed for the minimal investment requirement of $100,000.

The HBCU Black Wall Street ecosystem is planned to be a community where HBCUs are fully self-sufficient and can circulate their money within their communities for a minimum of a year. Establishing the community would mean having all 107 HBCU institutions own and fully operate their businesses such as banks, hotels, restaurants, retail stores, airports, factories, studios, and many more. HBCU Black Wall Street will help HBCUs eliminate financial obstacles that hinder the community, and ultimately, it will help their students thrive to the best of their abilities.

In this challenging time and political climate, corporate entities are giving back to the black community in major ways. Netflix, the streaming giant, donated 140 million dollars for the benefit of HBCUs nationwide.

In a time where the black community is heard more than ever through the Black Lives Matter movement, Davis is giving back and securing funding through his company, HBCU Seed. The venture capital and private equity firm, dedicated to bridging infrastructure and resource gaps in HBCUs, continues to persevere on its way to bringing to life Davis’ dream. With an established HBCU ecosystem community, resource shortages of students, alumni, and faculty of African-American descent will be a thing of the past.

Planting the HBCU Seed has led Davis to help fulfill the need for resources, services, and funding in HBCUs. As its fruits continue to feed the HBCU community, HBCU Seed provides much needed services and opportunities, and is accepting added funding from investors and corporate donors. The firm furthers its commitment to the community by striving to earn funding during the pandemic.

Top Entrepreneur Zach Machuca Solves Lead Generation Challenges for Mortgage Brokers Through auto-Nurture

One of the leading digital marketing agencies, auto-Nurture, entirely eliminates cold-calling, one of the most stressful challenges that brokers face as they rely on referrals. Rather than improving human tasks using technology, the company takes an approach that makes them stand out among the rest, and that is by “improving technology with human touch.” 

The rising 29-year-old entrepreneur, Zach Machuca, is the founder and CEO of Zachy, a consulting firm, and a parent company to auto-Nurture. Since he was young, Zach has always been passionate about starting new businesses. In college, he was one of the few students selected to become part of an exclusive organization called “The Kairos Society.” The organization was a global community composed of top students and leaders aiming to solve the world’s greatest challenges. Since then, he has not stopped in fulfilling his mission of providing solutions to different challenges. 

Raised by entrepreneurial parents, Zach witnessed the value of hard work and the wonders that it can accomplish. However, the 2008 recession also showed him the reality of what it is like to lose it all. His family deeply suffered financially. At that moment, Zach and his older brother, Alex, vowed never to let their family suffer financially again. The brothers knew that the only way they could attain complete financial freedom would be by building their businesses. 

Over the years, they have found success in their separate entrepreneurial endeavors in lead generation. Both of them are now running some of the fastest-growing lead generation businesses in the industry. While Alex sits as the founder of Lyncrest Media, Zach runs auto-Nurture.

Indeed, Zach has established a real game-changer in lead generation through auto-Nurture. The digital marketing agency takes pride in improving automation with human intervention. As a result, a high-quality appointment setting exists, with each lead getting a one-on-one fluid and human-like experience.

With this unique approach, auto-Nurture fits perfectly for mortgage brokers who heavily rely on referrals. As most brokers wish to increase their volume, they are often prevented by the stress that comes with cold-calling. The company eliminates this problem on top of very low-interest rates.

While most lead generation agencies merely send a list of leads and remove all their sense of accountability by leaving the rest of the work to the brokers, auto-Nurture takes on a much more hands-on approach. The agency is well-aware that mortgage brokers need effective and efficient lead generation assistance that would not waste their time. With this in mind, the agency goes the extra mile in handling the “outreach and nurturing in between” process to help their clients save time and focus solely on closing deals. 

For Zach, providing lead generation services to mortgage brokers is just the beginning of something bigger. In the future, he seeks to expand his company’s operations to realtors, insurance agents, small business owners, and other industries that need their services. At present, he hopes to help more clients in the lead generation industry by continuously improving auto-Nurture’s services and going beyond their clients’ expectations.
