BYU alum and Qualtrics CEO Ryan Smith, wearing a wireless mic headset, puts his hands out to the side as he speaks to a crowd.
Alone in South Korea—without a job, money, or housing and zero understanding of the Korean language—17-year-old Ryan Smith discovered what it meant to be “all in.” Sleeping on a couch, teaching English, and eating ramen three meals a day, Smith (then a less-active Church member) ran into the missionaries and things began to change. Fighting through the struggles he faced in Korea, Smith came out on top, learning lessons that helped him when he later served a mission himself, attended BYU, and built tech company Qualtrics, acquired last year for $8 billion. Read more about his life-altering time in Korea and why he thinks everyone should go all in.
