Ryan Orrell is used to conquering adversity. His desire to overcome challenges and to continue to learn is what led him to selling his first website. Orrell has always sought to better himself and the community around him. A former 911 dispatcher, former police officer, and self-taught web designer, it’s easy to say that Orrell has a diverse array of successes. He doesn’t carry himself with a sense of vanity or hubris, though, believing that all of his accomplishments stemmed from simply his grit and determination to never give up.

FIRST TASTE OF SUCCESS:

I sold my first internet website for more than seven figures that I developed for only $250 in 2005. I built the website, quotemonster.com, to help people compare insurance quotes online. I developed the idea of consumers wanting multiple insurance quotes and charged the insurance carriers to give consumers their “free quote.”

WHAT IS A 'GOOD MAN?'

Loyalty and honesty. I firmly believe a man is only as good as his word. I’m still a look you in the eye and handshake type of guy.

MOST ADMIRABLE QUALITY IN MEN:

Work ethic, presence and the way they dress. The first thing I look at on another man are his shoes. Are they clean? Polished? Attention to detail.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

Being a father to my daughter, Meadow. If a man is a father, this should be his greatest accomplishment in life.

SURPRISING FACT:

Two things. One, I actually did not graduate high school. I failed my last semester of English due to an undiagnosed ADD condition. They let me walk, but there was no diploma inside. I got my GED. Two, I was once a K-9 Police Officer for the City of Hot Springs and 1995 “Rookie of the Year.”

FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB:

Helping small businesses succeed. At Webmonster.com, we’ve received 10 international awards from the Web Marketing Association on our web design. That comes from a place of LOVE in helping our clients succeed online.

LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE PANDEMIC:

Build relationships with your clients and employees. It’s about servicing your customers and creating an atmosphere of love in the workplace. Using this philosophy, I didn’t lose ONE customer or ONE employee during this pandemic.
