Ryan and Blair Critch launch Rags To Critchs brand to talk bankruptcy, addiction and marriage.

The night they met began innocently but ended with Blair scraping together $200 to bail Ryan out of jail for an expired tag. They partied like it was 1999 because it actually was- spending nights at hotels with heart-shaped tubs, and enjoying their share of booze and drugs. Ryan loved to gamble and racked up quite the debt totaling $17,000 only making a salary of $15,000 - which proved to be a huge problem. Ryan had no choice but to confess to Blair after four thug-like giants showed up demanding he pay back what he owed. Between the breakups and makeups their love and dedicated to each other was unconditional.

A bankruptcy, a drug withdrawal, and millions of dollars--- made, lost, and made again. Ryan & Blair’s story is not your typical everyday story. There were several lessons learned and a promise to each other to never be in a position like this again in life. Blair & Ryan have been married for fifteen years. They have two children, thriving businesses and enjoy taken vacations with their friends and family. It wasn’t always like that for the Critchs, Ryan had addiction issues that Blair was unaware of and when she discovered the secrets it was too late. A foreclosure on their dream home, thousands of dollars lost in real estate investments and having to literally start their life over emotionally and financially with almost nothing.

After 15 years of marriage, a plethora of stories and deciding that it was time to tell the truth about their past the couple decided to launch Rags To Critchs. A lifestyle brand that allows them to share their never before seen journey from rock-bottom to redemption with their community, family and friends. Their story highlight’s Ryan’s addiction to drugs, alcohol and gambling ultimately spiraling out of control and how Blair stayed to support her husband and gained control of her family. Their faith is strong, their businesses are thriving and live is good. But the journey took work. Ryan has been clean and sober for over a year but struggles daily to maintain his sobriety.
