Ramon Ray

Five minutes after I met Ramon Ray, I started implementing his nuggets of wisdom. He has the unique ability to speak with the professional charm it takes to interview the President (he had a chat with President Obama) and yet the youthful exuberance that connects him with Millennials. He’s brilliant, connected, a social media marketing expert and an astute businessman…who is fun to watch on stage and to learn from.


Ramon is Editor & Founder of Smart Hustle Magazine, his third book is Amazon.com best seller “Facebook Guide to Small Business Marketing”. He loves Aunt Jemima syrup, burnt pancakes, bacon and eggs. He is also a four-time entrepreneur, best-selling author, global speaker and producer.

Ramon has been invited as an expert witness to Congress, invited by the Office of the President of the United States to speak at the White House and produced many events including the "Smart Hustle Small Business Conference", "Small Business Summit", "Small Business Technology Tour", "Small Biz Big Things" and more.

He's interviewed President Obama in the President's first live Google Hangout and interviewed many of the sharks on Shark Tank. Although Ramon has interviewed and shared the stage with many celebrity entrepreneurs, his passion and biggest professional accomplishment is interviewing "main street" small business owners and entrepreneurs and sharing their stories.

Ramon is not just an ivory tower geek, but as a former technology consultant, he has hands-on experience in a variety of technologies including social media, mobile computing, computer networks, online software and more. His expertise is technology, marketing, sales, business startup and his favorite is personal branding.

Over his extensive career, Ramon has written thousands of articles, spoken to thousands of business owners and impacted hundreds of thousands of small business owners and entrepreneurs to help their businesses thrive.
