What exactly would the freedom of a 20 hour workweek mean for you?
For some, it means never having to miss another family dinner, dance recital, or soccer game…
For others, it means having the time to focus on their health and their hobbies instead of JUST their business…
…and for all of us entrepreneurs, it means FINALLY having the “free time” we need to focus on the truly big projects and BIG ideas that will drive our business forward…without driving US to burnout.
I’ll share with you what a 20-hour workweek meant for me in just a moment, but first, let me ask you a few questions…

What exactly would the freedom of a 20 hour workweek mean for you?
For some, it means never having to miss another dinner at home with the family…
For others, it means having the time to focus on their health (instead of JUST their business)…
And for a few, it means finally being able to pick up that new hobby or skill you’ve been wanting to for years…
But most importantly, for all entrepreneurs, it means having the necessary “free time” we need in order to continue to fuel our business with big ideas that drive it forward…without facing in the dreaded burnout.
I’ll share with you what a 20 hour workweek meant for me in just a moment, but first, let me ask you a few questions…
As entrepreneurs, we’ve been lied to, time and time again…
Tim Ferris made his fortune selling brain and muscle supplements by fully automating and drop shipping the system. He sold a product. He also worked a horrible round-the-clock work schedule to make it successful.
It was this burnout that inspired him to write the 4-hour workweek in fact.
Which grew a brand new goal for entrepreneurs, the “laptop lifestyle,” where you could work from a beach anywhere in the world, put in minimal effort, and make millions.
But outside of very, very few exceptions, it simply isn’t reality.
Even Tim Ferris openly admits that he doesn’t work just 4 hours a week, he works a minimum of 60.
As the digital revolution and “guru” marketplace continues to rise year after year, we also saw a stark contrast to the 4-hour workweek…the 120-hour workweek.
Championed by the likes of Gary Vaynerchuk and Elon Musk, the more hours you could work in a day quickly became a badge of honor.
And what has this unrealistic expectation led to? According to Business Insider, entrepreneurs are 4X more likely to suffer from depression than the general public.1
Plus more than 50% of that group suffers from burnout.
“Hustle and Grind” just simply can’t be the answer…
So what do most entrepreneurs end up trying to strive for? The traditional 40-hour workweek.
But did you know, that the 40-hour workweek only became a thing because Congress adopted the Adamson Act in 1916 establishing an 8-hour workday?
Simply because previously the average workweek for full-time manufacturing employees was a whopping 100 hours.
No science, no data, just the US government passing a law after over a hundred years of employee strikes and protests.
So, what’s the answer?
After over two decades of running businesses, we’ve discovered that 20 hours of REAL work is more than enough for any founder or entrepreneur.
Let me explain…
What’s the difference between cotton candy and chocolate cake?
Cotton candy is just sugar spun with head and air…you can eat and eat, but it just disappears the second it touches your tongue. It goes nowhere.
The day-to-day menial tasks that founders get caught up in for most of their days is simply cotton candy.
Now, as for chocolate cake (and I’m talking triple chocolate cake here)…
3 layers of moist chocolate cake, intertwined with rich chocolate frosting, and topped with, you guessed it, more chocolate…the type of cake you can only have so much of because it so rich. Even a small slice fills you up.
The REAL work entrepreneurs do is chocolate cake.
Our companies can only handle so much of it at a time before indigestion sets in…
And in the words of Hewlett-Packard Co-Founder, David Packard, “More organizations die of indigestion than starvation…”
So if we can just 20 hours of REAL work each week is enough to drive our companies forward, without causing them indigestion, why do we work more?
The answer is, we don’t have to, and that’s exactly what I want to show you during the 5-day 20 Hour Workweek challenge…
Earlier I let you know that I would share what top to bottom meant for me…
To date, my partners and I have started 117 companies, advised and acquired hundreds more, have been involved in literally hundreds of successful exits, and directly advised thousands of CEOs and entrepreneurs on how to grow and scale their companies.
One year, we even had 3 companies on the Inc. 500 list simultaneously.
Unfortunately, that same year…
While I might have looked successful on the inside, behind closed doors I was burned out…I was depressed…and I felt like a failure because I knew I was sacrificing everything I held dear at the altar of scale and success.
Something had to give, and one day it did.
After realizing I was on the brink of losing everything, I made a drastic decision. I chose to completely upend my personal operating system and limit my workdays to just 20 hours.
20 hours may not seem like much, especially if you’re used to working 80 or 100 hours, but if you follow the right system, it can actually make you MORE productive, MORE successful, and much, MUCH happier.
Step 1: The Scalable Entrepreneur’s Formula
There is a simple formula to determine your ideal workweek and that’s exactly what I’m going to show you first…
Scalable Entrepreneur’s own their business, their business doesn’t own them and this allows them to scale their personal income and business, without sacrificing their “free time.”
Step 2: The 4 Types of Work (and why not prioritizing them correctly can wreck your week)
Did you know there are 4 distinctly different types of work that entrepreneurs do? All of them are important, but what’s even more important is knowing EXACTLY how much time to do each type and how that fits into your ideal workweek.
This simple recategorization is the key to maximizing your output without increasing your time and effort inputs.
Step 3: Scaling Your Time
Just like with money, you have to budget your time so you can account for how and where you spend it.
What most people don’t realize is that the key to get the most out of your workweek is building it in reserve. Together, we will reserve engine your ideal workweek while making sure no critical tasks are missed.
How and when and why you choose to spend your time will determine your success.
Step 4: Don’t “Do,” Delegate
Contrary to popular belief, the best leaders are NOT the busiest leaders.
It’s easy as entrepreneurs to focus on increasing or maximizing our capacity, but Scalable Entrepreneurs focus on maximizing their organizational capacity.
Together, we’ll get your business out of your brain and increase the capacity of the total organization.
Step 5: Systemize to Scale
Most people create systems and processes to get the same results their already getting – it’s a depreciating asset.
Instead, what you need is a system that duplicates itself and compounds the results you’re getting…without you having to do any more work. And that’s exactly what we’ll show you…
And, in fact, people have paid upwards of $2,995 to attend similar live trainings.
So why would we share this for a fraction of the price?
Because at the Scalable Company we are on a mission to help entrepreneurs scale themselves so they can scale their companies.
And as part of that mission, I want to share the information typically only reserved for our top clients within everyone’s reach…
That’s why you can join the 20 Hour Workweek Challenge for just $20!
And in exchange for that small $20 investment, you’ll get everything you need to win back 20+ hours each and every week…
Time Sensitive: In just 60 minutes per day, this 5-day LIVE and highly interactive challenge will help you implement a proven system that will allow you to continue to scale your business WITHOUT sacrificing your personal time and freedom.
Throughout my 20 year career as a marketer turned serial entrepreneur (but mostly still a marketer) I’ve now scaled 5 businesses to over 8-figures. I’ve scaled companies from eLearning, to physical products, and even events.
I’ve focused my career on systems and frameworks that shortcut my success so that I can repeat it for each and every business that I start. These frameworks are the Ace I have up my sleeve to fast track my success beyond the typical business owner…while only working around 20 hours each and every week.
During this 5 day challenge, we will be focusing on the strategies you need to scale your business to hit each and every one of your goals…without “spinning your wheels” and experiencing the dreaded entrepreneurial burnout.
And after 5 days you will leave with a step-by-step plan to win back 20+ hours each and every week and only focus on the REAL work that will push your company forward.
I will walk you through every step of the way on LIVE coaching calls…
And it’s all done through a step-by-step road map tailored just for you.
So if you are ready to get focused, take action, and win – I want you to join me in our 5 day 20 Hour Workweek challenge.
I am so excited to share this process with you…because I know the power and potential it has for you as well as the impact it can make on your life and your business.
Imagine what’s possible when your business hits each and every one of it’s goals, while you only work 20 hours a week…
What would it mean to you to not only see this process…
But take powerful action over these 5-days with support from myself and a tight-knit group of other successful entrepreneurs from all around the world?

See you there,
Ryan Deiss is an entrepreneur, author, and investor, and according to Shark Tank star, Daymond John, “His companies practically own the internet.”
Ryan’s entrepreneurial endeavors began while he was a college student at the University of Texas at Austin, launching his first very first website and generating his very first sale from his freshman dorm room. By the time he graduated, this one online property had ballooned into 500, and a hobby had grown into a business.
Fast forward to the present day, Ryan is the Founder and CEO of The Scalable Company (Scalable.co), DigitalMarketer.com, Recess.io, and a Founding Partner at Scalable Equity, LLC, a venture equity accelerator that builds and acquires B2B media and software brands.
Ryan is also a best-selling author and a sought-after speaker who has shared the stage with top business leaders and celebrities like Sir Richard Branson, William Shatner, Gary Vaynerchuk, Rachel Hollis, Tim Ferris, Daymond John, and Dave Ramsey.
The challenge takes place over 5 total days. We have calls every day except the weekend with a bonus Q&A call the following week. Each call takes place at 11 am PT/2 pm ET. Here is what the schedule will look like:
Each call takes approximately 60 minutes. There will also be suggested daily homework that should take no longer than 1 hour to complete (some only take 5-10 minutes). So throughout the challenge, expect a 2-3 hour time investment per day.
Yes! These strategies work any entrepreneur in any business…B2B, B2C, professional services, SaaS, brick & mortar, and more! So no matter what type of business you own, this framework is for you!
Everything takes place inside of a private Facebook group. You will get access to the group as soon as you purchase. In the group we will host the live daily calls, upload the recordings, and post the workbooks/slides. Also, this is a great way to network with fellow challengers and help each other along the way!
For as long as Facebook has groups 🙂 You have unlimited access to the group which includes the recordings and workbooks. 2 weeks after the challenge ends we will “archive” the group which simply means no new members, posts or comments, but you’ll still have access to EVERYTHING in the group up to that point for as long as you need it.
