About Ari Gunzburg
When Ari Gunzburg was only 10 years old, his teacher passed away while out on a field trip. They were hiking in the woods, and the teacher simply fell over. This traumatic event early in Ari's life had an impact on every aspect of his life thereafter.
Ari had trouble in school, which was followed by trouble elsewhere, culminating in Ari getting his "PhD" from the school of hard knocks - from recreational drug use, wild partying, dropping out of high school, overnight stays in jail, discarding religion (and coming back) and more.
Live and Learn
"Regret not, but learn from your mistakes," Ari will tell you, when discussing the wild ride of his youth. If you can learn a lesson from an experience - any experience - you can use that experience as a stepping stone to greater success in the future. Each and every experience shaped some aspect of Ari's current beliefs and attitudes.
A Life Beyond Marketing
After ten plus years working in marketing, graphics, web design, branding and more, Ari realized that his previous life experiences can be beneficial to more than just him. That his story could help others not make the same mistakes that he made, and to have a better chance at life success by learning simple life lessons the easy way and not the hard way.
Helping Others Build Lives of Meaning
Now Ari has re-focused his life around helping others, while taking care of four fantastic children and his amazing wife. Ari is building unique programs, workshops, and keynote speeches to help others, using his speaking talent and more to create an environment ripe for lasting change.
Ari is a wilderness liaison, helping other experience the wilderness at or slightly above their comfort level on treks with his wilderness expeditions company, JTreks. In fact, some of Ari's workshops take place out in nature! Nature and the wilderness have a remarkable calming effect, an amazing way of relieving stress.
