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 ,

harleemai ,
