60. Lifestyle Building with Tom & Ariana Sylvester

The 3-Day Weekend Entrepreneur

Tom & Ariana are co-founders of Lifestyle Builders, a coaching and training company that helps entrepreneurs build their businesses to create more impact with their customers and more freedom in their lives. When they graduated from college, Tom set a goal to “retire” by 35, and the last several years they have spent figuring out how to do that, and now helping others to create time and financial freedom in their lives. Tom and Ariana are entrepreneurs and business mentors. Although Tom always has “side hustles”, including selling used books on Amazon, he started his first “real business” at 22 when he started a real estate investment company. A few years later, he started his second business, which was a brick and mortar wine and liquor store. Ariana eventually stepped in to help run the businesses, even though she didn’t have an interest in entrepreneurship, but she could see how it was a path to creating their ideal life. Eventually, people started seeking Tom & Ariana out for guidance on how to start and scale their own businesses, especially while raising a family and working on creating their own ideal lifestyle. It was then that Tom left his corporate consulting job so that he and Ariana could focus their attention on helping entrepreneurs build the business they desire to create the life that they crave. They have helped thousands of entrepreneurs and business leaders achieve more success through their podcast, coaching program, and upcoming book (Lifestyle Builders: Build Your Business, Quit Your Job, AND Live your Ideal Life).

The 6 to 7 Figures Show - Episode 094: Ariana Sylvester

The 6 to 7 Figures Show

As you already know, we love entrepreneurs on the 6 to 7 Figures Podcast. However, one of the issues that many entrepreneurs face is that they have the passion and ambition, but not the right alignment for their life. There can be such a disconnect between what they want to do to make money and how they want to spend time with loved ones and family. All too often, this misalignment can create conflict and tension, which will torpedo a business faster than anything else.  To help us understand this problem from someone who’s lived through it, I’m talking with Ariana Sylvester, part of the duo behind Lifestyle Builders. Ariana was a reluctant spouse - pulled into the world of entrepreneurship by her husband, Tom. Tom had the epiphany that starting a business was the best way to build the lifestyle he wanted, and he was able to get Ariana on board, although it took a while for her to get to the same level of passion. In this episode, our primary focus is on alignment. For so many entrepreneurs, they have this mindset of “I’ll start a business, then I’ll make money, and then I’ll have the life I want.” Unfortunately, that process is a bit oversimplified, as it ignores the most crucial aspect - putting in the work. Becoming an entrepreneur means long hours and a grueling schedule, which also means that your spouse and family have to be on the same page. Ariana Sylvester went from reluctant spouse to successful entrepreneur by building not 1, not 2, but 3 successful businesses, which has enabled both her and her husband to leave their jobs in their early thirties. She now partners with her husband to help others achieve financial freedom via their Lifestyle Builders book, podcast, and coaching programs. Introducing Ariana Sylvester!

24. Create the Business you Need to Build the Life you Crave with Ariana Sylvester

Real Estate Transaction Coordinator Podcast

Ariana is a life strategist, entrepreneur, speaker, and author. She is an operations whiz, taking care of the day-to-day team and task management of their 3 businesses. She spent several years bouncing around from job to job, until she finally realized that she was much better off to help Tom (her husband) build their businesses instead of helping someone else. Ariana's super power is her ability to understand both perspectives; both the entrepreneur and the “reluctant spouse”. With this unique ability, she helps entrepreneurs understand why their spouse doesn’t seem to support their ideas, and at the same time helps the spouse understand why the entrepreneur is so driven to make their business succeed.
