Ryan Zofay          

CEO of "We Level Up" & Author of "An Unlikely Businessman: From Overdosed To Multimillionaire"

Ryan Zofay is most passionate about sharing his practical lessons that change lives. As a successful entrepreneur and motivational speaker, he teaches development strategies that improve performance, connection, and overall mindset.

Zofay, and his businesses, including the We Level Up series, Holistic Treatment Center, and others, are defined by the type of growth that comes from overcoming obstacles. Zofay has grown from a man whose life has been marked by hardship to a business leader in South Florida, passionate about providing the same healthcare delivery to patients in the region that he himself benefited from in the past. After getting involved with Holistix, he has grown it into the comprehensive addiction treatment center it is today.

Like many of us, Zofay is no stranger to feelings of pain and failure. At age 5, he lost his sister to Alexander Disease, his parents divorced shortly after as he watched his mother’s grief fall victim to drug addiction and the domestic abuse of her new suitors. Trying to manage his grieving, he often felt unloved, unsafe, and as if he couldn’t protect himself or his mother. Eventually, under her influence, he began experimenting with drugs to cope.

Born and raised in a high crime area, Zofay’s drug use led to dropping out of the 7th grade and falling into the wrong crowd. By the time he was 16, he had been in and out of juvenile detention for two years and faced twenty-one felony charges.

While incarcerated, Zofay’s mother found sobriety and began advocating for him through the court system. He was released, and on October 6th, 2001, Zofay lost his life due to addiction. Zofay got into a car accident and was pronounced dead at the scene. Through nothing short of a miracle, he was awoken three days later from a coma and began sobriety on October 9th, 2001. Zofay found himself feeling incomplete and knew he wasn’t fulfilling his purpose. In 2012 Zofay got sued by the FTC and found himself miserable.

This was the first time Zofay truly wanted to change his story. He moved his business to a different industry and began investing in himself, his education and trying to find ways to impact the world positively. Though life started to improve, he still had overwhelming feelings of shame and limiting beliefs he learned growing up. He felt that he wasn’t good enough, didn’t belong, and didn’t deserve any good that came into his life. Zofay closed the biggest deal of his life, and on the surface, everything appeared great, but all of his limiting beliefs came up on the drive home. This is when Zofay began to understand happiness is an inside job.

Zofay gave every ounce of his being to find a way to become the person he envisioned himself being. He completed about 1500 hours of personal development training and experiential therapy workshops.

Zofay began implementing personal development principles, rituals, and routines into his organizations. Quickly he saw an extraordinary change in morale, effective leadership, team connection, and overall performance. He saw the power of healing through vulnerability and built personal bonds with members of his team and community he wouldn’t otherwise have.

Walking into 2020, Zofay found where he belonged. Alongside his business partner Adam Roth, Zofay created an environment to introduce these practices on an individualized level to the community and other organizations called "We Level Up" which is in the drug and alcohol industry. We Level Up operates 162 inpatient beds in Florida and New Jersey and is looking to grow. We Level Up also offers a personal development program capable of healing and inspiring individuals to grow to their fullest potential.

Zofay’s goal is to create a world where everyone can wake up empowered, know they are enough, feel safe, and be fulfilled by their lives. Zofay is living a life of purpose and, through all of his experienced, learned if you’re not living every day with a sense of purpose, then you’re not living.
