Golden Team

Ky-Lee Hanson

Publisher | Head Of House | C.E.O.

Ky-Lee Hanson is an “ideas” person; she envisions solutions to many of the world's issues. Ky-Lee creates and executes dozens of projects at a time, and offers guidance directly to hundreds of people every week with the intention to create social change. Ky-Lee started GBR out of a need she saw for the voice movement. GBR is a growing team with 300+ authors, and is rapidly diversifying its portfolio and empire of services. Ky-Lee has formal training in business and health, but is mostly self taught. She is a multi best selling award-winning author, successful entrepreneur, philanthropist, and selfless leader. She thrives on creating opportunities to help people along their journey, and she excels at it. Her success came by developing the taboo art of collaborative business, giving everyone the space to rise. Ky-Lee has an open-door policy she learned from her mom, a listening ear, and an opportunity to link arms and take you down your Golden Brick Road.

Matt Grannary

Director of Production

Matt handles most of the production here at GBR which includes graphic design, typesetting, and print production. GBR is also dedicated to bringing our expansive community of authors together online with our proprietary business networking and e-learning platform that Matt is single handedly spearheading.

Sasha Ritchie

Executive Assistant | Financial Coordinator

Sasha Ritchie has been with GBR since the beginning and helped out as a contractor from time to time alongside a full-time position in a corporate setting where she helped that company become multi million annually, and while raising her young family. After getting married and having her second daughter, she quickly learned that working outside of the home was not the right choice for her family. She outgrew her previous workplace and the timing aligned perfectly to take the opportunity to join GBR full-time as Executive Assistant. Her background is 10+ years of administration and customer service, along with years of animal welfare in a professional and personal aspect. Being goal oriented, focused on client care, and passionate to make a difference, Sasha is a natural addition to the GBR team to help with the behind the scenes tasks to help grow the company as efficiently as possible.
