Despite all the success that Ryan is having today, his beginnings were not easy at all. In fact, Ryan’s childhood was full of extremely difficult moments and many challenges. From an early age, he grew up watching his parents use and abuse alcohol and drugs. His younger sister was diagnosed with a disease. During her illness, his parents focused their attention on her, leaving Ryan to feel unimportant and unloved.
Suddenly, at the age of 5 his sister died. Ryan’s parents then divorced and he began to see how his mother was abused by other men. At the age of 11 he tried drugs for the first time. His mother gave him his first joint of marijuana and she said “I’d rather you do it with me“: later he says: “I was always trying to get my mom’s love. I would steal from my dad to give my mom money, I would rob people at random places to get money to buy drugs for my mom and I.”
Ryan grew up thinking that he wasn’t enough and that his voice didn’t matter. At the age of 16, he experienced a traumatic accident that changed his life forever. He had been consuming alcohol and drugs for several days until at one point took a dangerous amount of Xanax to achieve a high.
“Fast forward to about a week later I woke up in a juvenile detention facility because I ended up getting into a high-speed chase, we flipped the car and I was pronounced dead at the scene. I had 21 felonies over my head. I’m about to spend 2 months in juvie and I remember the judge telling me that if I ever come back, they are gonna sentence me to 25 years to life; and so it was the scariest time in my life. It was devastating. Before my sentencing, I was in church on a Sunday, and this lady came up to me. That was my first time when I felt like God sent an angel to me and she said, “young man, you are going to be fine”, Ryan details.
The judge decided to give Ryan another chance and didn’t send him to prison, so he immediately remembered the lady from church and thought: “God is real, God is taking care of it, it is going to be fine!”
Just when things were starting to look up, at a later time his mother was shot by his stepfather. It was a very hard time for him because he thought she was not going to live. It was a miracle that she lived! Shortly after, his mom got back with his stepfather and then stabbed her 16 times. He was finally put in jail and she became sober after that.
Time went by, Ryan was sued for $10 million dollars for trading options, but he managed to pay the money back and come clean. During that time his fiancée left him, so he hit rock bottom again.
In 2018, Ryan decided to attend a Tony Robbins’ conference. At first, he did not want to attend it because he did not believe it was something useful. Little did he know, he fell in love with the event and Tony Robbins and signed up to become a Platinum Lion Member for $85,000 which became his biggest life change. Being part of this close circle of Tony’s and getting to know him up close has helped Ryan become who he is today!
Later in 2020, We Level Up was founded in partnership with Ryan’s father and his business partner, Adam Roth.
“We Level Up produces liberation from the mental chains that bind us, and enable us to operate at our fullest capacity. Have you ever wondered why you’re always living the same patterns over and over, end up feeling like a victim, or making the same choices which always lead to stress, anguish, and inevitable upset? We Level up offers not an answer, but a solution to these grave dilemmas that face us on a daily basis”, Ryan explains.
Today, he has been sober for 21 years and is looking to share his story to the world to help and inspire others to see hope. One way to give thanks for everything he has experienced is to share the tools and beliefs that helped him in today’s world through his Personal Development Seminars.
