A well rounded education makes you disposable 
By: Sandi Krakowski
I got to thinking this morning about how many people are programmed to get a well-rounded education in life and learning.
People go through the motions, learning just enough about as many topics as they can…. and some don't even bother, because it's so darn boring anyways. And what kind of results do we get? We see an entire world filled with people who have NO mastery, NO marketable skill and no special talent. We have a bunch of well-rounded "Nonthinkers" and drones.

If you are reading this you are definitely not one of those kind of people.
You'd never survive with some of the radical out of the box thinking we present. I mean give me a break, I have pink hair, a tattoo and a big diamond in my nose. .. enough said. To be successful in life you don't need pink hair but you need to learn how to think in a way that is totally different than the rest of the world. 
I feel a moral and an ethical obligation to challenge you on something today. If you are still trying to learn everything you can in a basic understanding of business so you can one day have the life of your dreams, my friends, you'll never ever get there.

The way that you get yourself to earning 6 or 7 figures is very strategic.
You MUST become a Master at something. You must get so good at one thing that no one can compete with you. You MUST get so masterful that you are unstoppable in the marketplace.

So… how do you do that? Well, you saturate and dissect one thing until it's become a part of your DNA. This is how marketing is for me and the study of how people respond to things online. It requires intense focus to get to where you want to go… and I feel a moral obligation to tell you that a well rounded education or degree in business will NOT do it!

If you had 12-24 months of focus on one thing.. and you got so good at this one thing that you were unstoppable… what would YOUR life look like?

That's a question you have to answer or you, my friend, will become a well rounded citizen who takes on a role that doesn't impact anyone. It's about time…. now… to get masterful at something.
The life you now live is a result of choices and decisions you have made. Do you need to make a real change in those?   I'm fighting for YOUR future.. will you join me?

With love,
Sandi Krakowski

Are you making the kind of income you had hoped for?

By | Blog | One Comment
It's FRIDAY!!!
Funny, in the corporate world Friday is the day you look forward to… so you can GET out of there!  But when you're building your dream online, in a business you own, ironically, there are very few days you wish you could get OUT of there! Typically… as our clients start making more money, we have to teach them to just 'take some time off' to play hard and enjoy life…. because they LOVE what they do and they COULD do it everyday, all day! HA!
Let me ask you a very personal question… and please know my heart, I want to help you succeed.
Are you making the kind of money you had hoped for in business?
There are a lot of 'coaches' and gurus out there, who aren't even making money themselves yet position themselves as the #1 expert of this and the #1 resource of that. I don't know about you but I ONLY want to work with people who are living the life that I hope to achieve! Not someone playing an 'ego' and pretending until they finally make it.
In less than 2 months I'll be spending two full days with a group of people who have made a commitment to their future. Will I see you there?
My goal in life is to help others have what we have achieved. Period.
However that works out for you is your deal! If you want to give your money away to charity, that's totally cool. If you want to go to Maui 4-5 times per year and pay cash for everything, that's awesome too!  Maybe you want a big $ 50,000 ring on your hand to show that you are worth it… I love that as well!
But when push comes to shove if you aren't doing the steps you need to, the income WILL NOT come in.  We have a proven track record that is not on trial for helping people reach their financial and personal goals. Will you be next?
Let me introduce you to Jen Bennett… a Ruby client of mine.  She was going in ONE direction and just recently discovered that the plan that GOD called her to was being a full time Social Media Consultant! I am so darn proud of her I had to tell you about her today…
A young Mom who has struggled with a "ministry and poverty" mindset for a long time who GOD has called and anointed for business, to make a LOT OF MONEY…. has changed her direction!  Woohoo!
This is a gal who has a college degree, is super smart, cares about people and can GET the job done!
I introduce to you the next up and coming Social Media Content expert!  She'll be in TX in case you wanted to hire her for your own business, so you can do what you're great at.
Are you willing to make a change so you can BE successful in all areas of life… financial, spiritual, personal and physical?
Things will never change until YOU do. I want to help you get there.
Meet me in Dallas, TX March 31 and April 1st. What do you have to lose?  Maybe your struggles, fears, the broke mindset you've been battling since you were very young?  Bring your family with you!! Make it a time when you, your spouse, your older children are completely CHANGING THE DIRECTION of your entire future.
I'm ready if you are!
With love,
Sandi Krakowksi
P.S. We are so committed to your future that if you come to this event and it is NOT what you thought it would be, and you think there is no way you'll ever be able to be the successful person you deserve to be, just ask for your money back.  Then you can rest knowing that at least you gave it your best. No questions asked.
But here's my question for you …. what if you DON'T attend and YOUR answer is in Dallas, TX?

Miracles still happen today….

By | Blog | No Comments

I'm writing you today with so much joy in my heart I can't hardly stand it!

As many of you know a recent health challenge caused me to have to take some ACTION to get my body back on track. (If you missed that info, the entire story of my hospital visit is here

This article produced more responses than anything we've ever seen! More than 300 of you wrote personal notes, more than 100 comments on Facebook and replies on Twitter! It was obvious that you guys are the real deal… you love us as much as we love you!  And here's another thing I observed….. many of you are suffering from digestive issues and even disease.

You might not know that I've lived and moved in the alternative health industry for more than 25 years. I've personally built 3 powerful 7-figure generating e-commerce companies.. I managed a brick and mortar vitamin store, managed and coached at a brick and mortar gym for 4 years…. was a bodybuilder for many years in my 20's… have hundreds (could be thousands!) of books on alternative health…. and have read all of them at least 2 times if not more. I've sold millions of dollars of products and have been very blessed to earn millions of dollars in profits for myself…… and when I began writing for others, in various companies, did the same for others…. And then this past year about 1/3 of our client base lives in that realm and many have doubled and tripled their income!

That means…. I know that realm very well. 🙂 

But life can happen….. I've come from a very painful past…. and as many of you know…. sometimes we have residue we need to clean up. Traveling means you can pick up a bacteria you weren't prepared for. Sometimes…. As life happens.. and listen to me here…things happen that we didn't plan for but are totally still on track!

It's not a set back… it's a PROMOTION!  God didn't come to set me back with this…. He has strengthened me, made me MORE so I could do MORE and He lifted me up to a whole new level!

As I shared in my article, Ulcerative Colitis had to be dealt with head on… and it has been. Some of you have written saying things like, 

"You kept it well hidden"

"You didn't give a clue"

"We could have never known"

Let me publicly say this… my mode of operation is not to perform or live a cover-up…. it was not my intention to hide or never let anyone know. I also know that when something happens in life, I take responsibility for it. I don't blame, stop living or run in depression.

Listen up though… here's a Mentoring Moment for you all.. …the reason I was able to heal so quickly is partly attributed to the fact that my life is not so jammed packed that I couldn't rest, relax and do what I needed (including many more hours in the kitchen cooking healthy, healing foods!) because I am planning and scheduling on a daily basis rest times and balance.

When people tell me they can't do this, they can't do that, they forgot this, they forgot that, their life is too busy, they are moving, they have a challenge, their kids are sick, etc etc and therefore they miss appointments, forget commitments, dishonor relationships….. it reveals to me that they didn't have rest, relax, flex in their schedule…. because as soon as they were tapped out….. they began to break.  This is a sign of needing more staff as well, but we'll talk about that another time. 🙂  


I have some BIG news for you today!!!

I stand before you to say today officially in remission! 

That means no symptoms, and on the road to complete health.  I expect total healing just as God has done with other conditions I've faced head on!

But here's the deal… and it's a BIG deal for me. I've worked through somethings that needed to be worked through for me to go to $10 million in profits, a bigger life, a more LIT UP future with my God and our clients… and I've done what it takes to overcome!

It didn't happen by someone waving a magic wand and it didn't happen because God likes me better than someone else (all those stupid pathetic lies you might have heard by others who claim to have experienced something miraculous)….. but this one thing is true-

Healing dwells and lives in heaven and Jesus Christ has the power to heal!

He never does a half-baked job either… He is the restorer of hearts and He is the mender of broken spirits.  With the past that many of you have heard about…and the pain I've suffered through my journey called life… my body needed some healing… and I am so thrilled to tell once again, as occurred 7 years ago, I'm well and on the road to total recovery! And the fun part.. my doctors are thrilled as well!

I'm still on a very strict diet (and loving it!)…. and a very strict regime of supplements, rest, exercise, relaxation and here's a big deal… worship. I spend time worshipping the King of The Universe everyday, letting Him know how much I adore Him and am just totally crazy about HIM! 🙂

We have clients from all different backgrounds at ARC… every faith… every religion.. every doctrine.  But this is my passion… to love people unconditionally and to live a FULLY BRILLIANT LIT UP LIFE before them.

This is a part of that…. letting you know that as a leader, I'm doing my part to be all that I can be for you.   

Your job now… is to do the work in your own life and business!

I'm sending a big hug and love and gratitude to you all! 

LIVE out loud, my friends!  The world needs you!

With love,

Sandi Krakowski
