Ryan Watson is the Co-Founder of Upsourced Accounting and the CEO Sqrl. When he’s not working with clients, penning a blog, posting on Twitter, or spreading the good word about Upsourced Accounting, he’s probably embarrassing himself on the golf course, passionately supporting his favorite reality TV contestant, or helping his wife Lauren grade papers.

I remember the days of hell I had to go through in order to coordinate requests with clients, so I was really excited to have Ryan on the show. I’ve included the video below that initially grabbed my attention and is very impressive!

After talking with Ryan, I have to say that he is definitely an inspiration to me. I hope you enjoy the podcast–Ryan is a great guy and has a lot of cool stuff going on between Upsourced Accounting and Sqrl.
