Love it 😍

Happy birthday Ari!

This podcast is excellent... and I just heard that Ari is fading himself out of the podcast.... and I hate to say it because he’s great to listen to....

But how much more proof could you need that he really knows what he’s teaching about, than by him replacing himself from his own business?

Thanks for everything you do. Hope whatever your next journey is is something you absolutely love and crush 😊💗 take care

magraldo ,

Powerful!

Love this podcast, the episode Productivity is a Sport really resonated with me. More guests like Carey please!

harleemai ,

Such an incredible podcast!

Love Ari and everything he’s doing! This podcast is so informative without feeling overwhelming. I particularly love the most recent episode with Carey Bentley about productivity.
