We had the good fortune of connecting with Ryan Kugler and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ryan, let’s start with a hypothetical. What advice would you give to someone facing insurmountable odds?
Confront it! Any issue, or barrier that comes your way, just face it, confront it, tackle it and handle it. Do not let things take you down. The more you do, the more you confront something the more it builds you and nothing but good will come from it.

What should our readers know about your business?
One of my businesses, is a marketing company, called Ideal Content. We make specialized marketing material for companies. We stand apart from the others because of quality and customer service. We return every call and every email. We stay in communication with our customers, vendors, etc. We are on top of things and do not let little tasks go by the wayside “because we’re too busy”. We make sure that we explain every step and that the customer is happy to the best of our ability. We go above and beyond with quality, we do not cut corners, etc. We like to call ourselves old school.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Well here in LA, there are so many fun things to do, of course all of the tourist attractions, but let’s go beyond the norm to Lake Hollywood, the old subway station in DTLA, a good movie at the Arclight or the Caruso malls….and then, always best to stay at the resorts along the coast from Monarch Beach in Dana Point to Ritz in Santa Barbara.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
