dude fuck critics…  I don’t even want to call them “haters” cuz that term is just so played.

but they sure do inspire the shit out me.

some dude came on to this brilliant ass RTV I made earlier… it probably popped up in his feed because I promoted the content.

You are weak and scared. How do you expect to make money? #randomtalkingvideo

And I entertained his fuckery for a few in the comments.

But it gave me a sweet idea for a video.

Soon as I posted it, we made more sales.

Good fucking times.

I love me some mothafuckin’ haters.

PS – I’m gonna be emailing a lot more. I’m thinking twice per day sometimes.

So get off my list if you don’t want them.

PPS – I have like a hundred testimonials now for Rabbit Hole, and we haven’t even started.

I’m raising the price to $1,000 soon.

“The difference I’ve seen in my self-expression since starting Rabbit Hole is unbelievable. I’m allowing myself to believe i can do stuff that i thought only hot, blonde, advanced ashtangis in beaches in Miami could do. I also feel like I’m allowed to have an opinion and a personality whereas before I had to be some cookie cutter version of a ‘nice’ yoga instagrammer.
-Jessica

Hey guys, watched the videos today and wanna say without kissing arse that I’m happy with the product so far because it seems like you really care. I get an impression that you’re really trying to deliver quality information and the point being to help people succeed. It seems like you’re not holding back or keeping best bits to yourself. It seems genuine, and you’re more personable and less sweary than I expected. Take that as you will. Thanks so much.
-Alice

“There are people in the group who simply want to make money, then there are people who just want to be able to pay their rent, then there are others who do well but not well enough to put their offspring through a schooling they need – they’re pursuing the notion that that could be viable through understanding better their own unique talents.

That last one is me. I’ve been dying to say that for ages.I’ve had many messages from people asking if they should sign up. I mean – that’s a ridiculous question. It’s the first training I’ve done in years, it’s the first one I’ve wanted to do, if I’m on it – you should take that as a yes. Buuut you’re going to be required to step up.”
-@naomiabsalom

“It’s happening so suddenly…. it’s weird. This morning i launched an Instagram live interview series and already have four episodes set up. I didn’t realize i already had a network in place and just need to hit send with purpose, confidence, and resolve.”
-David Schockett

PUMPED (video)

holy shit. i’m so pumped about rabbit hole so far.

the hype was too fucking real before we started and I was completely freaked out.

but shit’s going off, and we haven’t even started yet:

“This is so great. The intimacy of these lists really puts things in perspective. Like, who am I to think my struggle is oh so real. Everybody struggles. And this goes both ways. We all share ambitions, too. And ideas, and experiences. There are 340+ universes in this group, every single one as vivid and complex as my own. This is huge. Fucking worth the money, and it hasn’t even started yet.”
-Jonathon Pusinelli

there’s still some time to join the party. We go into the hole next week, and we’re gonna lock it down while we get started.

But just wanted to make sure you know what to do when you get inside, so I just made this video for you before I check out of this Airbnb.

Get some. (there’s a payment plan available.)

PS – we have dozens of these:

“Hey guys, watched the videos today and wanna say without kissing arse that I’m happy with the product so far because it seems like you really care.

-Alice Hale

“It’s changed my life to say the least #RandomTalkingVideo we posted fact lists about us in the group. It’s incredible because I feel I know the people in the group and they know me on an incredibly deep level. I feel like these people know my whole life story and I haven’t even met them. I had no idea that this group and these people would become my community.”
-Sophia Felson

dat email tho

It’s fucking everything.

I’m telling you.

I’ve been using email to make money on the internet for years… for myself and clients.

Even back in the day, when I was taking more one-on-one marketing consulting projects, I took it just a seriously then as I do now.

But. I let my clients off the hook more than I’d like to admit. It’s not most people’s favorite thing to do. And I hate to think how much money I let them leave on the table because I didn’t get on their ass about it.

Cuz for real: there’s no better way to create money out of air than mothafucking email.

And you don’t even have to think about it like “email marketing,” or “email newsletters,” or “an email list” or whatever. (although you can.)

I just mean the method of communication.

Even if it’s to just one person at a time through your damn Gmail account… maybe it’s a person who’s got a problem you can help solve.

A friendly, fun, personal email that makes the reader know, like, and trust you is the best god damn thing ever to sell things and influence people.

And if it ain’t your shit you’re selling, someone else has shit to sell. And no fucking idea how to use their email list.

Go help them make money and take some of it.

That’s what I’ve been doing for like fucking ten years.

Just differently now. I’m much, much better…

Still not a “good writer” though. That shit has nothing to do with it. I just write like I talk.

Try it out.

If you don’t know what to say in your emails, well, you need to get on board with Rabbit Hole, yo.

We’re gonna get all up in it when we go down into the Hole.

Ry

PS – we haven’t even begun yet everyone is fucking loving it.

“WI can’t believe that we’re not even in the hole yet, and still this seems to be the best investment both business and personal wise this year!”​@makamashishop

“I feel like I’m on a huge psychedelic trip and when I come out my bank accounts going to be full.”
@strength_coach_dan

“this has the makings of brilliance, really.”
@yogafy

“I gotta say the looking glass/look at yourself and write about it/Alice in Wonderland theme is super cohesive. I thought it was a bit kitschy or something at first, but I’m in, it’s brilliant. Also, I ate some mushrooms part way through my list.
@neon.coral

And a fucking shitload more.

400+ people are going through the program. 😳

Right now, we’re all doing prep work:

The Hatch and Through the Looking Glass.

rabbitholeisopen.com // there’s a payment plan available.

you know her?

I was sitting in a Borders Books, and I got a direct message on Twitter from a woman named Valerie Waters.

Before I even opened the message, I knew exactly who she was because she was in fitness magazines every damn month for working all these fancy celebrities.

And we were using her product, The Valslide, in my gym.

This was the Summer of 2008 when I was running a private personal training facility in the south suburbs of Chicago, where I grew up.

It was a little town called Frankfort. Very different than Los Angeles.

So at the time, having a hotshot celebrity trainer messaging me was a big fucking deal.

Valerie was, like… famous.

She hung out with Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper and Jessica Biel, and Cindy Crawford, and all these pretty people.

Her message was something like “hey Ryan. I loved that tweet. Thanks :)”

I think it was a link to a video about optimizing email opt-in pages.

I’d been studying marketing for a couple of years, and at this point, probably spent damn near $50,000 on DVDs, and courses, and seminars, and CDs, and coaching programs, etc.

I was obsessed.

The business did well with just referrals and no real idea WTF I was doing, but it really started to get good once I began learning more about marketing.

Anyway, I read the message and immediately texted my employees like “Holy shit! Valerie Waters just messaged me!”

Val and I talked on the phone, and she flew me out to LA to meet.

While I was there, we emailed her list and did a live streaming video “Chat with Val.”

Completely spontaneously. When at-home streaming video technology was fucking bleeding edge new…

Her fans and customers were stoked to get to come and ask her questions… and we sold about $10,000 worth of her shit in the couple of hours we were on.

I decided on that first trip to LA that I was never moving back to Chicago. (if you know West LA, I was walking down Montana Ave., near 7th street.)

And I immediately began the process of selling the gym and moving my life to LA.

I worked with Val for six years then taught yoga for four.

And I did a bunch of consulting throughout.

Anyway, that shit’s all great, and now you know a little more about me.

I tell you now because that message from Valerie was one of the critical turning points in my life.

And that shit wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t been doing Rabbit Hole things. (albeit early-stage and with a limited understanding, but the same principles.)

I’m on a whole ‘nother fucking level now.

And that’s why Rabbit Hole is about so much more than marketing.

We’re getting the party started tomorrow in The Hatch.

Before we go into the hole (next week), we first have to go through The Hatch (tomorrow), and The Looking Glass (for the next 4-5 days)

rabbitholeisopen.com 

This is the cheapest fucking money you’re ever going to find.


It won’t be long before you won’t even be able to get me on the phone for less than $10,000.

Later.

-R

PS – the price of Rabbit Hole  goes up to it’s [temporary] full price tomorrow: $500. (next group will be at least $1,000)

But if you hurry your ass up, you can get it for less.

There’s a payment plan available now.

PPS – if you already registered for Rabbit Hole and you didn’t get your login info… check your email – or email kass@yogaasexrockgod.com

some time-sensitive shit

I’ve wasted too much time on this email trying to be clever. Better to get right to it:

Just making sure you know that the price of Rabbit Hole goes up today.

(and if you’re already in, you’ve probably already done that thing in the secret FB group, yah?)

We’re locking it down very soon.

On Tuesday, May 1st, we begin.

We start in The Hatch.

And then we’ll go Through the Looking Glass.

And finally, the Rabbit Hole.

(RH members: you received login details yesterday. Look for the [Rabbit Hole] email from me)

 

Re: update

just letting you know that this weekend we’re going to be sending out access codes to pre-Rabbit Hole preparations… [and increasing the price.]

So if you’re registered, watch your email.

If you’re not registered, you’re making a huge mistake.


When you get inside, you’ll find two things:

1. One video.
2. One button.

Watch the video and it will explain what to do.

Then click the button, and it will take you somewhere special.

On May 1st, we’re doing a Live [stream] introduction slash group meeting.

It’s called The Hatch.

Like the thing that astronauts have to go into to depressurize or whatever the hell before they get into the fucking spaceship.

We’ll talk about what’s gonna happen and how the program works.

(you don’t have to be there Live. There will be a recording.)

The next day, you’ll go Through The Looking Glass.

This experience alone is worth 100x the cost of admission.

And we’re doing it BEFORE we even begin the “Rabbit Hole” teaching.

NOTICE:

I’m going to take you through Rabbit Hole ON MY SCHEDULE.

You’ll get everything before the end of 6 weeks. But you’re going to get what I want to give you, when I want to give it to you – and not before.

It’s not weekly; it’s not daily.

It’s fucking Ryanly.

-Ry

PS – You can’t register at whatisrabbithole.com anymore, but email kass@yogasexrockgod.com if you want the checkout link.

PPS – once we go down the Rabbit Hole, the door closes… and I don’t know if it will ever re-open.

 

this you? 🤔

holy shit I hate when people say things like “I don’t like marketing. I just want to teach.”

Boo-fucking-hoo.

Here’s all I have to say about that:

YOU AIN’T SHIT.

And actually, I have this to say too.

And a whole lot more, really. There’s a bunch in my Story from today. It’s on my IG… people are saying it’s the best one yet. Or I uploaded to Vimeo too.

But, seriously, if all you want to do is the easy thing and you just expect people to show up and give a shit…  you’re motherfucking crazy.

And people call me “narcissistic?” 😂

You’re sitting there thinking you have some magical powers that people should just automatically care about.

Motherfucker, please.

And the weird thing is that, really, I don’t even teach “marketing.”

I just package it that way so people know they’ll make money… but it’s more about confidence and showing the right people what they need to see to find you.

But keep fucking playing scared.

I’m sure it’s working out great for you.

Later.
-Ry

PS – Rabbit Hole is already working, and we haven’t even started.

Check out my man, Steven.

“I got like 4 new private students in the past week. 2 were not people who received my email—2 were. It wasn’t the email itself… it’s the confidence that has been born out of trusting myself more. And presenting myself to people as who I feel I am. And that has, in large part, come from listening to you.”

PPS – you can’t sign up on the registration page now. Price goes up on Saturday. We start on Tuesday.

Email Kassidy tonight if you want the checkout link. kass@yogasexrockgod.com

you around?

check this shit out.

I got this DM yesterday and I think the answer might help you too. 🤷🏻‍♂️

“Hi. I really need your help. I’m stuck in this loop that I ‘can’t’ do social media, and it’s getting silly.

I’m a chiropractor and need to show the world who I am.

What stumbles me is that I’m an outgoing and self-confident woman, but when it comes to my business, I don’t make myself heard or seen.

I just started following you and was wondering what would be the best, first step?” – Sara.

I like questions like this.

This is what I would do.

There’s also a great idea about how to approach your first #randomtalkingvideo.

The video is 3 minutes long, and there ain’t shit to buy.

443408_1524583472Tymhow-to-start.jpg

-Ry

PS – I’m gonna go on IG Live today in like 30mins (9AMish California time)… so if you wanna stop in, just hit my Insta. The recording will be there if you miss it.

We open the Rabbit Hole registration while we’re live… at rabbitholeisopen.com. Then we shut it down after.

The $300 tag goes away very soon. Before we start the program, it will be $500.

If we decide to run it again, it will be at least $1,000.

 

fucking chipotle

bro, you’re fucking up my burrito. get it together.

why do you need all of the answers right now?

Does this ever happen to you? #randomtalkingvideo @chipotle

A post shared by Ryan Orrico (@ryanorrico) on

You’re busy, and I can feel that giving you all of this information isn’t going to help. It’s not going to stick.

Just wait until we get there.

@dk_movement Hahaha maybe you intended this to be metaphorical for practice and teaching, and if you didn’t, you should definitely pretend you did. Brilliant.

@firstlightbeauty I love how you said nothing about Rabbit Hole and this video is speaking directly to those that don’t trust the process and need ALL the info up front.

What’s to question when people already love your emails, YMTDS, all the free shit you post here and, duh, you? You’ve already stated you’d return their money if they weren’t satisfied…so what’s the holdup?!

Legit.

Besides making money while you sleep and generally becoming a badass motherfucker – Rabbit Hole is about installing a new lens to view marketing and self-promotion and yourself and the world.

I know what I want people to know about me.

Really, I make myself up as I go. That’s how I keep my eyes open to opportunities to tell stories to reinforce and demonstrate those things.

I see it because I look for it.

And thanks to brilliant fucking tools like #randomtalkingvideo and ugly emails – it’s quick and easy as fuck to share.

All you need are the right principles and a few simple tools. You already have the stories.

And one of the most powerful things about this approach is that now, people are way more likely to think about me when they’re at Chipotle – or other places – where a similar situation happens.

And that’s what it’s all about.

That’s where the magic’s at.

In the subtle things.The omnipresence.

It’s about being front of mind at all times.

It’s about being the only possible solution because you’re the only one they think about.

And it’s about them evangelizing for you and demanding their friends go see you.

And the best part of all…

When the relationship starts like this, you help people MORE.

Wayyyy more than if you ‘got them’ by chasing them down and being all desperate ’n shit.

They’re way more likely to respect the work and do the homework and show up and give you everything they got.

That shit doesn’t happen by accident.

-Ry

PS – you still can’t sign up for Rabbit Hole… we’re finishing the page over the next couple of days. When it goes up, the price will be up. (and we’re thinking about creating a payment plan)

So if you want it before that, email Kass and tell her. kass@yogasexrockgod.com

PPS – did you know it began before we even officially start? You already in it, baby.

431681_1524506100MxPlibby-dm.jpg

scared of girls [video breakdown]

this is a breakdown of this video I posted earlier on Instagram about one of the craziest things I’ve ever done:

In 2008, when I first moved to LA, I met this dude who ran a dating advice company. They offered a 3-day program called “bootcamp” for guys who are scared of approaching and talking to women.

The 60-second version for public consumption is on my Insta. (the video has been “Saved” [according to IG analytics] an unusually high number of times… so it must have touched a nerve)

But this 3minute video explains a little bit more about why I posted it… and what I was trying to accomplish.

It’s also about how to use stories to change the way people think.

It’s all about purpose, baby.

And it’s a huge part of what we’re gonna be doing in Rabbit Hole… using stories to get people to take action and push through the shit that’s getting in the way.

It’s 3 minutes long and there’s nothing to buy. No email address required.

It’s on Vimeo hereand you’ll also learn my irrestistible pickup line. 😏

-Ry

PS – Rabbit Hole begins on May 1st.

The sign-up page is still down because we just found out we have a real cap on the number of people who can join the Live video broadcasts.

I figured it was 2018 and I’d be able to stream to an unlimited number of people… but nope. 🤦🏻‍♂️

This is the first time I’ve run into a legitimate capacity issue with technology like this 😂… usually, you have to manufacture scarcity.

So we’re not going to accept many more registrations. And when the new page goes up, the price will be up.

But if you’re ready to go now and you’re not gonna ask a bunch of questions – email kass@yogasexrockgod.com and she’ll hook you up with a private checkout link.
