My favorite video testimonial – so good.
“I just want to thank you for all the mentoring and guidance you’ve given me in those amazing e-mails. I transformed myself from that one, single post, both in character & writing ability. You are the steak of coaching.”Alden Tan
“You are amazing. I have officially fallen in love with your posts and inspiration. Thank you so much.”Amber Meadows
“Jason’s an exceptional person, with whom it’s a pleasure to work. He inspires you and you get his positive energy in the process. A very short conversation needed, and from less than half the words he understands exactly what you need.
Besides doing what’s required and doing it on time, Jason exceeded my expectations by doing more than expected, providing his expertise and making my initial ideas much better and stronger than the original product. The ebook we created together is liked by absolutely everyone and it seems like Jason visualized my ideas even better than I did.
I strongly recommend him to absolutely everyone who wants to have good quality, inspirational, creative and absolutely differentiated products.”Ani Chibukchyan
“Jay came into our talk with his passionate, motivational gloves off and beat my poor, limiting beliefs to a pulp.
Read his stuff… if it speaks to you, save up your nickels, tap-dance on street corners, sell your dusty CD collection… do whatever it takes to talk to this special wise man.
Most personal development advice doesn’t really hit me in my heart. I’ve done a lot of crazy interesting stuff and been pushing myself beyond belief for my whole life… usually I`m not impressed….
He explained how I needed to love money and how to know myself in ways that gave me two epiphanies I`d been waiting for for years.”Benjamin Jenks
“OK Jason, I’m completely speechless, you ARE good.
I need a little time to integrate the beauty of your response.
It kind of blew my love and mind circuits. I will never be the same, thank you, soul friend.
You are pure beauty. Thank you for allowing yourself to be vulnerable and telling me about your ‘lonely at the top’ moments, that blows me away.
You have that much more of my respect, because you’re willing to make yourself accessible, as a fellow traveller, and not merely as a guru. Very cool. ”Brooke Meservy
“Jason Fonceca IS Ryze. He lives & breathes his amazing words. He’s the most honest man I’ve ever met & speaks his mind even if it’s going to crush someone– but he has this way of making everything feel good, even the worst news. His ideas are new & different, they’re perfect for everyone because he makes them easy to twist to just a little bit to suit your own personality. He always follows his feelings, and in the end it’s always the best for all parties involved. He expresses himself and hides nothing. He’s a very sexual man, and he shows that side to everyone. After getting to know Jason & learning what he’s been through, I’m realizing what a strong, brilliant, unique individual he is & how amazing to have gone through all that and still be as positive and giving as he is. After talking to him for even 5 minutes, I can’t help but feel inspired to be a better person, to revamp my life & to be as badass as Jason is. ”Brett Leadley
“Working with Ryze was like working with a super-charged monkey on steroids.
After a couple short conversations he went off on his own and delivered a brilliantly designed image that matched exactly what we talked about. Not only did his work surpass my expectations, but he delivered it to me 5 days before the deadline. His vibrant enthusiasm and sick passion for design is clearly demonstrated in his work.
I would certainly use his services again on other projects and recommend him to my fellow business partners.”Corey Swiergosz
“I do love Jason’s comments about fame being ‘reach’ – and he obviously has studied this topic and is passionate about it.
Just glad he stopped by and shared.”Craig McBreen
“Roadblocks come in to personal lives as well as businesses. With Jason’s help he has shown me a different angle to look at those roadblocks, turning negative energy into positive results.
Jason, ‘J-Ryze’, has mastered the art of communication. He knows the right questions to ask to unleash a person’s creativity and explore new possibilities.
If you desire to re-design your life or business and start going above and beyond being mediocre, Jason will get you there with class.
Start reaching for the stars by putting Jason on your team. It is time to Ryze Up.”D. Hayes
“Jason, you should write a book called ‘How To Ask The Right Questions’ – and let me know when it’s done, so I can buy it.
You give a unique perspective and an intelligent, well-thought-out message.
Always. Period.”Denise Urena
“This man IS A GOD, reworked my mindset and helped me find my VALUE. I’m no longer looking to be at the mercy of my customers but now I feel that I AM VALUABLE and that if I believe in myself enough I can make my passion into something great, resembling something like a career you see in movies, lol. Overall I loved my experience with ryze, and really hope me and him can become great friends going forward. Loved this guy! :D”Domenick Evangelista
“A five minute conversation with J-Ryze can change the way you look at life.”Elie Kirreh
“DUDE!!!!!!! This is soooo efffing cool! I just wanted to say…
…you are seriously like the pimp-ass mack daddy of coaching, doing your thing and blowin’ shiz up, and I admire you for it!
Reading your emails is like hearing a poetic rapper free-flow… I always enjoy them a mega lot. Get outta town you badass!
Please receive oodles of sparkles and glitter and razzle-dazzle to sprinkle all over your endeavor —
You are on to something BOOOM big, and I’m giddy to see the results!”Eyenie Schultz
“Jason, that was insane.
You got me excited about bringing my quirks & unique experiences into blogging. That almost feels dangerous ‘cause it’s raw and deep, & it’s putting your gut out there, but you showed that that’s what’s engaging, & what makes folks connect!
It’s the solution to boring, and has brought me the confidence to write beyond my blog. It’s cool how you came out with the use-right-now solutions that got me buzzing how to improve my articles, how to kick-start them with great headlines, all unique to my Gemma-quirk-isms. I was almost doing the Soulja Boy Crank That in my chair after we finished, full of ideas for the near future — and yeah — British folks crank that too ;)”Gemma Black
“Palpable passion in your work, great for shaking the psyche.”Jackie Purnell
“Jason, LOVE this – yes yes yes omg YES! I just decided to be vulnerable and do it. You were open and I responded back with the same. And even though I’ve never met you, I now feel this connection with you because I shared. I so wish I could HUG you right now for helping me see. That’s why I find your blog posts so compelling.
And this is the #1 thing out of your course that’s going to make a big impact for me. The fact that I FEEL so much is something I think maybe I thought was a weakness and instead I already see how feeling and sharing more freely is going to be a game-changer in my relationships, my writing, my job, all of it. I’ve heard the phrase: ‘when you’re ready the universe will give you exactly what you need,’ for me, that described me finding Ryze & signing up.”Jennifer Price
“I love that you clearly show how comfortable you are in your own skin & being.
No ‘need to please others’ going on there with you. I’m feeling a lot better about having let go of certain types of people in my own life now that I read about you!
Before that I felt vaguely guilty, but no more. Thanks Jason!”Kathy Tremblay
“Jason, thanks for your generosity and insights. I expected the call to be interesting, however, you lit a fire under me regarding some of my passions and dreams that I kind of forgotten I had. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to sleep for weeks! I feel more aligned and excited about my future than have in a long time.
I look forward to our next interaction which can’t be soon enough!”Kristi Berry
“Everyday with Jason, I walked away a happier person. When I was diagnosed with chronic depression and panic & anxiety disorder, it was a constant battle to be continually happy. Anytime I found happiness, my fears of loss and my low self-worth would always take away any moment of joy I had. Jason Fonceca made it a point when ever we had contact to tell me how valuable I was and to explain why the world needed my ideas and insight. Always inquisitive, together we’d find the root of the things that caused all those fears and with his help I released these things that kept me from being a happy person. Everyday now I live my life, one free of self-doubt working more and more toward my goals I feel like a free man all because one person tried that extra bit harder to help someone who everyone thought was unreachable. Bravest man I know is Jason, being around him is being around happiness & goodness and everyone would do well to be where he’s going.”Kheiran Khan
“Jason, Jason, Jason… another one that I REALLY needed to read… seriously dude!
Have you ever had an eager feeling in your gut when you’re reading or watching something because you’re so excited and know that something good is coming next??? That’s what I feel when I read your posts.
I hang on to every word, re-read where I need to, take a break so
I can digest… THIS post was what I needed today for real!
Thank you for your perspective, analogy, and wisdom you brought on this one man!! Smoochies! & since we’ve talked I’ve been getting so many referrals for web consulting, to where I’m getting help to fulfill it all! I’m ELATED!”Lakesha Brown
“Thanks for your insightful words. When I was going through it, I just thought it was interesting that picking up your book was one of the first things I sought to do.
@ryzeonline is the truth: check his site out and read his ebook, it’s awesome, and I know you’ll love it.”Lauryn Doll
“Jason, I am beyond moved. I am riddled with goosebumps, I haven’t resonated so much with anything in a long time and I’m continuing to be amazed with how your stuff helps me to consciously align my thoughts to exactly where I want them to be.
Thanks for igniting even more of a spark in me. What I really enjoy is how you have such a widespread knowledge of so many teachers out there and are able to put it into your own words.
I really appreciate having someone in my life who can see my varied aspects, and tighten up and polish them.
Thank you.”Martin Lotsberg
“J-Ryze is a cold dude. He’s like f***ing human NZT.
All the stuff you read in Napoleon Hill, or The Secret or any self help books and spend hours trying to implement via meditation, group therapy, raw discipline or whatever is nothing compared to a coaching session with J-Ryze.
All the claims he makes about being the coldest dude on the planet at changing perspective quickly and permanently is 100% backed up by the results he got for me.
Don’t be too proud to ask for this help. If you are striving for something but can’t quite make it work and don’t know why, this is for you. Invest in this.”Marcus Miller
“Jason!! I just Love You!! YOU are EXCEPTIONAL and have COMPLETELY brought me out of my “comfort zone!” I was comfortable connecting with “Friends” Online but since connecting with Your “Larger than Life” Positive Energy and Personality … I am going above and beyond anything I ever thought I would do! Yes, I wanted to, but thought “what will the world think about my openness regarding so many “taboos” in society that I NOW know, people are sooo intrigued and definitely interested!!
The incredible ideas you bring to the table make me continue to question myself as to what can I “SHOCK” people with??!! That statement to me during an online Twitter chat really took me by surprise! I thought I AM shocking… lol but not the way I WANT to be!
I am now working diligently on creating YouTube videos to “Introduce” myself visually to the world… to let others see who I am and my message… all Thanks To YOU! You have an Incredible thought process that many are in search of.
There are no words to describe my gratitude for all you continue to do daily that Inspires me to “Shock” “Create” and “Bring To Life” the world in which I have known….
You simply #ROCK and I thank you for your Friendship….. Always! Sending Much Love and Light…. #TogetherWeRyze”Maria Varella
“Jason Fonceca not only moves through space and time at speeds that would hurt your brain, but he can channel all his wisdom, experience, & heart in a way where people can’t help but feel connected, moved and deeply inspired. He’s an idea pioneer and a true leader…
…a real multi-passionate and multi-talented creator… There are few I know who can deliver like this guy.
If I were to list all his skills sets, your head would explode –> thinking how can one man know so much…. and this would easily be over 3 pages long… probably more. Yea, definitely more.
If you’re ready for insight and to have old paradigms shattered in order to make way for the new, this is your guy!
J-Ryze… 5,000 years of wisdom delivered in under an hour.”Matt Horwitz
“Jason took my ideas and turned them into gold. He takes little seed ideas and turns them into beautiful, thriving gardens. You feel fantastic after working with him and you’ll see all the possibility the world has to offer. Work turns into play, and time flies by as ideas snowball into projects. It’s an absolute pleasure to collaborate with him at any level. He brings a powerhouse of energy, enthusiasm, passion, ideas, and massive value. Jason Fonceca is a walking gold mine. ”Melodie Moore
“Very few people appreciate the value of positive energy. From my first experience with Jason’s blog every. single. post. has had substance I could relate to, & leverage to make myself a better person. Mentorship is something rare, and finding someone who not only talks the talk so convincingly but without fail backs up every word is even rarer. I was super bummed out because it seemed like my friends and I had nothing in common anymore, and from my parents to other success gurus everyone stressed money as a force with its own will and desires as if that’s all that mattered. I’ve always believed that it’s what you do and your conviction in doing so that matters. Ryze showed me I wasn’t alone and has been nothing but helpful since. Never underestimate the value of the warmth of another human helping you along your way.
I’m on my way from having gone to architecture and art schools in Boston to leaving the city for a fresh start. I like to find the biggest rock in the playground and throw it the furthest. The sense of dedication I learned in school is going to propel me even further as I’m training to become a Navy SEAL. Nothing’s going to stand in my way. Knowing that I’m backed by the same principles Jason believes in keeps me going. I was born Hindu and it’s said the era we live in is called the Kali Yuga. An age where honesty has passed its mark and those with faith seem to suffer the most. It’s also said however that since the truth is lost to time, all we have left is devotion. Find your niche and own it. The universe likes that which gives.”Nidhish Shivashankar
“Jason’s very positive without being sentimental or flattering.
His sessions are focused — there’s no wasted time — and his questions get to the heart of the problem, you come away with concrete solutions.
He has great exercises to get you going in the direction you want to be in, and the sessions have been very fun.
I would recommend Jason’s coaching sessions to anyone who is working towards success.
This is the coach that will get you there.”Patty Loofbourrow
“Providing a testimonial puts my credibility on the line, so I am VERY particular for whom I will write one. Most often I politely decline.
Five minutes after meeting him, I knew my search was over… Over the past year Jason has become not only a person with whom I am pleased to do business, but a friend as well.
He also drinks my coffee, that`s got to say something.
I have no hesitation signing my name to this, my credibility is in good hands.”Paul Spiar
“Ryze isn’t for everyone. If you want something easy to read that you can forget before your lunch break is over, go elsewhere, find something bland.
On the other hand, if you want surprising – & sometimes even brutal – honesty, real stories that most people would hide forever, and ideas that make you stop and think about yourself and your life, then stick around and read more.
Jason Fonceca’s life isn’t the most typical story, and he makes darn sure you learn what it can teach you.”Peter Sandeen
Jason made it so simple and easy to understand. He worked with me through the awkward silences, where most other people get annoyed at me. He definitely helped me change my own views: I went from “I am always nervous” to “I am way more confident” in a short period of time. It was real. He gave real solutions to real problems, not some fake BS that I’ve heard from so many people. He is really supportive even when I was the tiniest bit unsure he was always reinforcing the fact that I had become more confident. My thoughts began to actually change! It took a few minutes but by the end I was sure I had definitely become more confident.
So before I was shy and I kept to myself and I didn’t speak up alot, I kinda flew under the radar and now I know I’m gonna be more out there, more out-spoken, and more… me.”Rachel Herskowiz
“Thank you so much for the talk!
Just 5 minutes talking with you has erased all the doubts and confusion that was eating at me for several years as a university student planning his future.
I hope that every student could have had the opportunity to speak with you like I have before embarking on their journey towards their career to clear them of all the distractions and to focus on finding their “water’.
Thanks again for all the insights and advice!!”Kevin Chan
“I had the opportunity to have a quick chat with Jason and I have to say that, after only half an hour, my confidence in my project was already changing.
In fact, Jason showed me that my ideas were valuable and that I could even make a living off them.
It’s definitely the best advice.
I wasn’t really sure what I was doing before passing his door, and I left with a total new aspect for my career.
That guy is good.”Juliette Capdevielle
“What can I say about Jason Fonceca? he`s an exceptional cat… and by exceptional, I mean inspirational… and by inspirational I mean motivational… what I`m trying to say is J-Ryze rubs your nose in what`s holding you back from your dreams, then brushes your nose off & cleans you up, & then he catapults you down the path to sexy, amazing success.
Every word gets you amped up to be the best version of yourself you can possibly be.
I look forward to every new project he puts together and always finish with a smile.
So yeah, I’m a big fan.”Ryan Hanley
“You have great talents, you`re artistic, you`re passionate, and you work fast…
You have really good energy dude and you`re worth your weight in gold.”Sonnie Trotter
“HOLY SHYTE! Thank you so much for all of your deep knowledge, wise value examples and… most of all for your brutal honesty—I LOVED IT! I’m taking your advice and… Man, I can’t thank you enough, J.”Taheerah Barney
“Jason knows exactly what it takes to be a badass, and the hustle and grind that’s needed to ryze up.
Pay attention, this man knows what he’s talking about.”Tommy Walker
“Through listening, questioning, love & support, Jason helped me to open my own door and walk into the dream life I have always wanted.
Abundance now comes in my life where it used to be dark and for the first time I can honestly say I am truly living.
Thank you Jay for empowering me to live the life I have imagined.
I love you.”Tori Mongrain
“Jason’s focused mentoring helps you find the issues that are holding you back from whatever it is you want to accomplish or change in your life!! In one short hour he can give you solid and concrete revelations that you can actually put into action, and you will never be the same! He has the dedication, wisdom and understanding needed to target your very deepest needs, and then helps you realize just how to move forward and fulfill them! For anyone who wants help to identify and achieve their goals, Ryze Sessions are just what you need. Of course, your part is to be willing to make the changes that are identified.
This is not just another buddy or friend telling you what you should be doing…this is deep truth that will require you to make the changes needed to fulfill your goals and live your dreams, whatever they are!”Valerie Fonceca (My Mom :P)
“Thanks to your lessons I’ve become pretty confident in my skills, and honey, it gave me the confidence to pitch for a really great gig & I got it that same day!
Plus! I completely changed my homepage to include a picture of me and the real deal about my skills.
I’ve made sure to work out everyday and I read an actual non-marketing book before bed.
And the teens and I watched an actual movie yesterday!
All in all I’m doing pretty damn well. I can’t wait to see where and how far the other lessons will take me. 😀 Thank you, Jason.”Vanita Cyril
“J… half of the value I bring to the world I want to attribute to you. The benefits I gained were clarity, as well as insight into where my actions were going, and how to apply integrity. I knew if I had integrity, all else would follow. By understanding this, passion & desire are an inevitable consequence.
The doors are open, I broke down in the shower feeling these deep emotions, I don’t know a person in the world that can plant and nurture ideas, thoughts, and desires like you. The difference feels incredible man 🙂 At first I was so frazzled, and you guided me through with ease.
Your epic insight got me clearer than a stripper’s heels… on everything! Believe it!”Kawlinz
Together We Ryze:
A story-monial by Jennifer Price.
I stared at the blinking cursor in my Skype chat, desperate for his wisdom.
‘Breathe’, Jason typed.
I nodded and felt myself relax as the oxygen filled me.
More words appeared on the screen. ‘Are you ready?’
‘Yes’, I replied.
‘Stop being such a bitch.’
Huh? What? I thought. But I immediately smiled. I’m soooo not a bitch. Nobody calls me a bitch. It’s just not me.
Still, I knew instantly he was onto something, and now he had my attention. With strong words like that, it’s no wonder he’s so misunderstood.
Even though I’d only met Jay a few months before, I knew how he hates to be misunderstood, and it’s kinda strange how often it happens because he’s the guy who understands so much around him.
His quick understanding is his gift, and he’s blessed with a brilliant mind.
He told me that, when he was younger, he doodled during his boring advanced classes and became a gifted artist who swapped his skills to get friends.
His dad advised him not to trade time for money. His mom taught him to love unconditionally.
So Jay started his own business.
And it failed, so he tried again and again… and again! Selling his art, designing websites, creating a clothing line. All business failures.
Jay finally realized his skills were in uplifting conversation and shedding light so others can see. He’s a natural at giving fresh perspective, beautifying anything, energizing EVERYthing, aaaand interrupting people (yes, this is a skill, I will explain more later).
He has this amazing ability to help you see so much possibility with your unique talents, and encourages you to risk everything to live your joy. And he somehow figures out quickly just. exactly. what. your. joy. is. and customizes his counsel to you to exploit it with no mercy.
He loves to quickly get to the root of a problem and solve it, even if it requires him to do something drastic.
Like quitting his job and breaking up with his girlfriend on the same day. Or telling me to stop being a bitch.
He’s not like the rest of us.
He won’t pretend as if problems don’t bother him, or accept fake bullshit as a way of life without taking action to ryze up.
Some people mistake his extreme advice and examples as arrogance and argumentative. I think he simply wants you to think outside the box, to challenge your own limits and old ways of thinking. His interruptions ARE a skill because he immediately sees when you aren’t focused on a positive uplifting solution, if you dare deny the truth.
Truth is his ultimate beauty; it’s his art, his expression of love.
Before I found Jay as my Empire Coach, he’d been through some pretty tough times.
I’d read on his blog about how he went to jail due to an argument with his girlfriend.
And when he got out, he lost everything. His job, his stuff, his home.
He literally became homeless because he insisted on living his truth, and refusing to be anything less than an example to his clients.
So when he told me I was being a bitch I knew instantly he was right.
After staring at his description of me, I swallowed any argument and asked him his thoughts on how I could improve.
He showed me how my kindness is cruel if it’s a fake response just to ease others. How my reluctance to express my bold dreams was really just me hiding behind a fear of being accepted by others. How my flexibility to make others feel comfortable isn’t always a gift if it keeps me settling from anything other than the best for myself.
I might not look like the description of a bitch to most people because of my amiable behavior, but that’s exactly what I was.
He surprised me with something else, too, in that very same skype conversation. Jay admitted to me that he had become homeless again.
My stomach turned. I had a feeling he was having some difficulties… but… this?
I didn’t expect THIS.
Especially since the entire skype conversation was completely unplanned. I sent him an email and he responded right away with an offer to help. Here he was in some internet cafe thousands of miles away, with so little resources, giving me precious time and advice that would change my life.
I wanted to ease his suffering and the immense discomfort he must feel. I felt so grateful and powerless all at once.
In the weeks and months that followed, we talked and emailed more, and he continued to offer wisdom to me, even though he had no bed to rest his muscles and little food to nourish his cells.
But his hunger didn’t sway him from walking away from other clients and friends who offered advice and/or support that didn’t suit him. He refused to take it, if they weren’t living up to his high standards. I remember the time he stopped talking to a good friend – and potentially lucrative business partner – when his friend basically suggested that Jay work for minimum wage at a fast-food restaurant.
How could Jay possibly coach his clients to risk everything for their ambitious dreams if he wasn’t doing it himself?
At one point, he walked away from me too. I sent him an email that didn’t sit right with him. His response was something to the tune of “Have a nice life.” I was shocked at his reaction, which made me realize immediately what I had done. I apologized and offered to help him however I could, even if he chose not to stay in contact.
I gave him space to forgive and continued efforts to help his business. And somehow, that was all that was needed so I remain one of the few clients that he kept working with.
But so many other people in his life failed to ryze.
As you’d expect, his mood declined.
He shared with me his plans of suicide. I was baffled. How was he incredibly able to give so much insight for me to live my dreams, meanwhile preparing to die?
In typical J-Ryze fashion, he had an elegant design and beautiful reasoning for his death. I remember many late nights, with tears rolling down my face as I painfully listened to him brag about his plans, hoping against hope he wouldn’t go through with it.
One afternoon, I opened my email and there was a three-line poem he had written in a message to me. I was absolutely sure it was his final goodbye. I quickly shot a message back, praying I was wrong. I’ll never forget how shaken I was; a visible mess to my friends and family.
Relief flowed through me when he replied the next day to my email response.
Still, he was determined to surrender his life. He only became more frustrated because he couldn’t carry out his solution for suicide quite yet.
Even his carefully detailed plans for dying weren’t panning out.
So, one morning he trudged into a coffee shop in his hometown, Toronto, to help at a fundraiser after a bus had smashed into their storefront.
Jay donated his last $10…
…and that’s when everything changed.
He met his ideal client Evan, a thought-leader who was truly building an empire, and immediately connected with Jay’s creative mindset and deep knowledge of successful legends.
It didn’t take too long for Jay to realize that he finally had a purpose that distracted him from his previous plans to die; instead he was thriving by helping Evan ryze-up.
Jason was finally being rewarded regularly by someone who listened to and applied his wisdom. I’ve witnessed Evan’s business transform and blossom ever since.
One of the most rewarding aspects of improving my own life has been to see him do the same right alongside me; I helped Jay as he was helping me. He watched me take his advice, even when I wasn’t sure it would work. Because I trusted in his wisdom and grew in ways I didn’t expect, he began to trust that there were more clients like me with big fantasies who are willing to make big changes so they can become real.
I STILL continue to ryze and learn from Jason.
I refer back to his advice and wisdom long after it’s been given. In fact, I just quit my 9-5 job so that I could pursue my passion of writing full-time. I have no list of clients, and no back-up plan. But I do have the amazing Empire Coach, J-Ryze, who helped me recognize that I was ready to take the leap to live my joy. I have no doubt that this is my time to shine.
If you’re a creative ambitious entrepreneur, and you have a chance to work with Jason on building your empire, you are truly blessed.
