Episode 88: Ari Krzyzek

Ari knew to get the right support to really grow her business, she had to leave Bali. Cue the head trash! Before she could get too far down the “what if?” path, she caught herself and deliberately chose a different strategy – more along the lines of “Let’s try it and see what happens!” If all the things you’re scared of failing at (like starting over in another country!) are keeping you at a standstill, this one’s for you.  

Can’t-Miss Moments From This Episode:

  • Confession: I’ve gotten some surprisingly good business inspiration from TikTok. Before you judge, hear me out. This may be what you need to drop the self-judgment and keep going.

  • Ari avoided the numbers side of her biz like the plague. It took one little question she couldn’t answer to make her wanna bust out the calculator. Could you be a closet numbers geek and not know it?

  • Bad news: growing pains and challenges will keep coming. Good news: You WILL figure it out if you keep going… and if you’re not so sure about that, Ari and I have some monk-inspired wisdom to help you get unstuck.

  • I don’t need to look at your calendar to know there’s a CRITICAL appointment missing from it. Ari reveals why this important time block is something you’ll struggle to succeed without.

  • Let’s do a little myth busting… true or false: setting and enforcing boundaries means LAYING DOWN THE LAW and telling people how it’s gonna be. If you suspect it’s false (good for you!), here’s why your instincts are spot on…

This one is jam-packed full of advice. Don’t miss out – listen now!
