Ryan Blair Premieres "Nothing To Lose: The Documentary"

Social Media Engagement Supporting Autism Charities for Autism Awareness Month

NEW YORK, April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Serial entrepreneur, philanthropist and New York Times bestselling author of "Nothing To Lose, Everything To Gain," Ryan Blair, today releases "Nothing To Lose: The Documentary," based on his international bestseller.

Directed by Andrew Sandler, the film follows Blair's heartbreakingly inspirational story as he overcomes challenges and adversity. Like many entrepreneurs, Blair had no formal business education but great survival instincts, tenacity, and above all, a nothing to lose mindset. "Nothing To Lose: The Documentary" provides an inside look into Blair's personal life-changing experiences to inspire others to take on their own ventures and apply the nothing to lose mindset to their lives.

As the CEO and Co-Founder of global health company ViSalus (ViSalus.com), Blair rose from a troubled childhood of gangs, instability and poverty, to become a multi-millionaire entrepreneur and best-selling writer. "Nothing to Lose: The Documentary" gives viewers a glimpse into the everyday life of Blair, as he balances being a single father to an autistic son, caregiver to his mother—who miraculously awoke from an 18-month coma during filming—and a powerful business owner.

"I decided to release this film for free because I want people to see firsthand what it takes to battle adversity and still achieve success," said Ryan Blair. "In my book I tell my readers how I did it, in this film I show my viewers."

Swedish House Mafia's Steve Angello provided the original song "Yeah" for the film, which was recently awarded Best Feature Documentary by the Los Angeles Art-House Film Festival, accepted into the 2014 Beverly Hills Film Festival and nominated for Best Documentary Film. Early viewers described the film as "unprecedented" and "a story that tells you a lesson."

Blair will release "Nothing to Lose: The Documentary" on NothingToLose.com on April 9. In support of National Autism Awareness Month, Blair will donate $1 per LIKE/SHARE/FOLLOW of the documentary to charities benefitting Autism advocacy and research during the month of April. Viewers are encouraged to share using #NTLdoc.
