#254: Beyond Influence – An Interview With John Ramstead


I always love connecting with new people, and today’s guest solidifies the saying, “a friend of yours is a friend of mine.”

I was introduced to John Ramstead by a dear, mutual friend, Dean Showalter. I’m so thankful for Dean thinking to connect the two of us, and I’m so thankful John’s and my path converged and we made time for this interview.

He is the real deal with an amazing story and a sincere passion for changing the lives of others, “beyond influence”.

I’m honored to share this conversation with John with you today, and know you will appreciate being introduced to him, so be sure to listen.

More From John:

John Ramstead

I have been married for 25 years to my best friend and together we have three incredible boys.  It has been three years since a near fatal accident changed the trajectory of my life.  Without the incredible support of God, my family and amazing friends I wouldn’t be the person I am today.

As I recovered I sought direction on why God saved me and what He now wants me to do.  He led me to a new calling: take the life He’s given me and pour it into other leaders to equip and inspire them to work in His Kingdom.

My twenty-five years as a Navy fighter pilot, entrepreneur, Fortune 500 management team member and board chair has led me to serve others towards extraordinary lives, businesses and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

1.  Strategic Influencers Mastermind

We have recently expanded for a few openings in our next-level mastermind group for Strategic Influencers just like YOU. The purpose of this group is to connect emerging leaders for sharing ideas, purposeful collaboration, relational and business accountability, and ultimately, each member realizing “NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE!”

This is not a marketing effort to get people into a course. In fact, this is not a course and it is not coaching. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

For more information on this incredible opportunity, go to …

Once you’ve completed the application, someone from our office will contact you to set up a short phone interview. Our desire is to serve you with excellence. The application process ensures you have all of your questions answered, and you and I are confident this group is a good fit for all involved. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
