About Ari Gunzburg
It all started at an early point in Ari Gunzburg’s life, when he experienced a traumatic moment: his teacher passed away while hiking on a field trip. The class was 10 years old.
Following this incident, there was trouble afoot at school (we were traumatized; enough said). This created a domino effect of changes and decisions that all culminated in Ari getting his “PhD” from the school of hard knocks, through multiple bad decisions and the outcomes of those decisions.
Learning and Living Past Your Mistakes
“Regret not, but learn from your mistakes,” says Ari, reminiscing of the wild cycles he went through during his misspent youth. Any lesson you gain from an experience is one you no longer need to learn in a formal educational program such as a university.
Ari has had many experiences, each of which shaped him; from dropping out of high school, to going to jail, to experimenting with drugs, to wild partying and more.
How To Pronounce Ari’s Name
Ari = R.E. – then just say it quickly (R.E. as in the two letters)
Gunzburg = guns + berg (note the proper spelling though)
Moving Past Marketing
After more than a decade working in marketing, branding, graphic design and websites, Ari realized that his experiences can help others. That his mistakes don’t have to be lived over and over again, if he can just tell over his story, and help people understand.
Ari is now focused on helping others, all while taking care of four fantastic children and the most amazing wife.
He is building programs and workshops to help others, using his ability to speak. Ari is producing podcasts to help others find their path to success and greatness. Ari helps others experience the wilderness, and the calm that comes from being immersed in nature. And Ari is helping kids and teenagers make better decisions.
Ari is now building lives of meaning.
