Ariel Frey is LIVE on Squarespace
Ariel Frey knew it was time for Restyle after having a baby and shifting her business to meet her new time needs, her new target market and her new business goals. Ariel is a kickbutt intuitive success mentor who works with 6-figure, spiritual entrepreneurs looking to make more $$ in their business with less hustle.
Ariel's intuitive sense was apparent throughout the entire process. She knew exactly what she wanted and stayed true to her vision! She wanted the website to have a high end, luxury feel s o we used a classic Serif font and a soft blush pink. We also had a ton of fun making Ariel's sales page for A Lister with different fonts and layering styles that gave a true reflection of the message she wants to send her readers and potential clients.
"My boundaries became so important and so necessary. Now, I have a lot more freedom, but it took a lot of work learning how to do that."

CHECK OUT OUR Q&A WITH ARIEL ABOUT HER RESTYLE
Ariel has TONS to say about making more money after setting more boundaries in her life. Yes, you have to hustle, but HECK YES you need boundaries to succeed.
GO LIVE: WHERE DID YOUR PASSION FOR THE INDUSTRY START?
ARIEL: I always felt like I wanted to make a difference and help people. But then, I got really passionate about being an entrepreneur when I was getting out of college. I knew I wanted to own my own business and have time freedom and space freedom, so I actually was going to be a Reiki master teacher and got a certification and started learning about things like intuition. I decided that was definitely not for me, and then a year later, I really learned about the coaching industry. This was it. This was exactly what I want to be doing. Then, everything kind of evolved into working with intuition and business combined.
GO LIVE: DID YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR EDUCATION HELPED PREP YOU TO RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS?
ARIEL: I went to school for musical theater performance actually, but I think that really prepared me to have a thick skin for what people think. That’s a huge block that people come up against. They’ll say, “What are people going to think if I say this or if I do this or if I follow this path or if I charge this much?” I’ve always had to build that muscle, but it really helped to to have that in college to get constructive criticism all the time. To be always performing and putting myself out there was really helpful for putting myself and my business out there.
GO LIVE: WHAT IS THE HARDEST LESSON YOU’VE LEARNED IN YOUR BUSINESS?
ARIEL: The biggest lesson I’ve learned in my business is to follow my own intuition. I followed the advice of someone else in my business direction, and I felt so lost and felt like what I wanted to do around intuition and business was wrong and wasn’t possible and my business tanked. Then, once I trusted myself and decided to do what I knew was right, that’s when everything skyrocketed.
GO LIVE: WHAT DO YOU WISH SOMEONE WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU WHEN YOU WERE STARTING OUT?
ARIEL: I wish that someone would have told me that it was okay to be number 1. That’s actually the best way to do it. That means setting the boundaries of what you’re available for as far as time, the type of clients you take on, the amount of money that stays in your bank account. Once you decide what you’re available for, then you are number 1, so what you say goes.
It’s both boundaries and accountability – it goes both ways. If you say, I’m going to make this number of sales this week, then that’s what happens for you, period. There’s no plan B because you’re putting yourself as number 1.
If I had done that from the beginning, I would have had to hustle less, I wouldn’t have been so nervous to deal with clients, and I wouldn’t have given a refund in my life.
GO LIVE: HOW HAS SETTING BOUNDARIES HELPED YOU GAIN MORE FROM YOUR BUSINESS?
ARIEL: When I started my business, I actually thought I was going to gain a lot of freedom and didn’t. Many people think that once you start your business, you’re going to have all this freedom. It turns out, that’s 100 percent opposite because of the way that I was running my business. I was working all the time. I thought I had to work really hard in order to make a lot of money. I didn’t really value what I did or really understand it, and I didn’t have a lot of boundaries.
I worked with difficult clients, worked hours I didn’t want to be working, worrying about a lot of things and allowing a lot of boundary leaks in. Then, I got pregnant and had a baby, and my boundaries became so important and so necessary. Now, I don’t work all the time and I make a lot more money than I did before. Now, I have a lot more freedom, but it took a lot of work learning how to do that.
GO LIVE: WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO TAKE YOUR BRAND FOR A RESTYLE?
ARIEL: I decided to take my brand for a Restyle because this has been a pinnacle point in my business because everything for me has changed. I have changed in terms of deciding to just be who I am and because of my baby. Because of that, who I am working with has changed. My time has changed. I’m not available to build out my own website anymore. That’s something that I need to hire out to someone who is very good at what they do and can do it in a shorter amount of time.
