Ryder and Nicole Erickson
Ryder: Business Owner
Ryder and Nicole Erickson have a unique story. Having started his first business at 17, Ryder was always an entrepreneur. Investing in real estate at the age of 20 and starting several other ventures taught him the limitations of traditional business. "I found that even though I was self employed, I essentially owned my job because I couldn't really duplicate myself," says Ryder, "and I didn't have enough money to invest my way ahead without taking 50 years to do it." When Ryder saw the opportunity in his early 20's, he knew that this was the perfect business, unlimited potential and mentorship.
Nicole was raised around this amazing Amway business. Her parents, founding members of World Wide Dream builders, Theron and Darlene Nelsen were Emeralds when she was born and Diamond by the time she was two. "Growing up around this awesome business and with free parents, I always knew I would build this business so that I could provide the same lifestyle for my future family," says Nicole.
Ryder and Nicole met at a Spring Leadership, and four months later were engaged. At the time, Ryder was a Ruby and Nicole was a 1000 Pin. They soon built their business to Emerald and after a couple of years integrated with Nicole's parents and became one of the first World Wide Dreambuilder Integrated Family Businesses. The Ericksons are extremely passionate about this business. "This is a business that can literally change your family's financial future for generations to come." says Ryder.
