Points of Change
How healthy is your relationship with alcohol? Maybe you don't drink? Perhaps you're like me and enjoy a few glasses of vino at the weekend? If you want to improve your personal relationships you might work with a relationship coach. Ruari Fairbairns is the coach to speak to if you want to improve your relationship with alcohol. What would life be like if you stopped for a while? Hmmm... When Ruari asked me to think about this, all the reasons I didn't want to surged up in my mind. Then Ruari helped navigate me through to the reasons it could be great. What happened next? Take a listen. Originally from the Isle of Mull, Ruari had a difficult childhood, struggling intensely with his thoughts and finding it impossible to fit in. Determined to make his mark on the world one day, the relentless entrepreneur started working at the age of 14 and a sequence of events led him to London where he worked as a senior Oil Broker. He began to experience a number of health problems including IBS, anxiety and dry skin and soon realised that alcohol was causing him more trouble than good. Six months later he decided to remove alcohol from his life, and this was the starting point for his journey with One Year No Beer because it allowed him to create space in his life, to find his true meaning and purpose. One Year No Beer is an award-winning toolkit for surviving modern society alcohol-free and has since recruited over 80,000 members worldwide. Ruari believes that having a community is crucial to making a positive lifestyle change. Find out more about Ruari and OYNB here https://www.oneyearnobeer.com/ and join me on the challenge.

Alcohol and Empire Building - interview with Ruari Fairbairns (founder of OYNB)
Empire Builders with Nick James
Nick is with ‘One Year No Beer’ founder Ruari Fairbairns talking about the movement and community he has built and his passion. As someone who has experienced a professional life where alcohol is very much part of the culture, Ruari discusses the reality of alcohol and why many believe that alcohol is making life better when actually it’s making it worse. The movement and platform he has created gives people the opportunity to undertake a challenge that reveals the reality of their relationship with alcohol and enables them to understand what they are really seeking in life. Ruari is passionate about his community but is also a hugely successful entrepreneur building an empire that is providing aspiration for those involved. KEY TAKEAWAYS We are all in a toxic relationship with alcohol there is no safe level as it’s a poison. The ‘take control’ course is for those who have taken an extended break from alcohol and want to have a structure in place moving forward. Empires have been previously built on alcohol; it is said to have greased the wheels of many deals. Can you as an entrepreneur give yourself an upgrade by taking a break from alcohol? Yes, and you will gain more energy, productivity, clarity and time. People use alcohol to switch off but in reality, alcohol creates anxiety. You should celebrate the wins as an entrepreneur in business and in life but you don’t need alcohol to do it. People want to help other people and we are creating a platform where people can help each other. When we hit the power of unlocking community we will be hitting millions of users who will be empowering each other to change their relationship with alcohol. The principles of change are the same whatever the addiction. If we can give people a platform and the tools to work out what they need to change in their lives then we can change the world. Community is free to build and when you have built a community it will have a wider impact than just those directly involved. The ripple effect is immeasurable. BEST MOMENTS ‘I can have a drink whenever and where ever I want to, I just choose not to’ ‘Creating a movement that is challenge-based is a brilliant way of marketing’ ‘I know that changing your relationship with alcohol will change your life’ VALUABLE RESOURCES Empire Builders Podcast One Year No Beer website ABOUT THE HOST Nick James Nick dropped out of university at the age of 21 and failed spectacularly with his first coaching business, which forced him to take a £16k/yr telesales job. Within 12 months he was the top performer and left to start his second business at 24. This time he discovered a winning formula and before long had a multi-six-figure company. He then made a huge mistake which nearly put him out of business and cost him £50,000 in personal cash! Fortunately, Nick kept it afloat, turned it around, and sold that business 2 years later in a seven-figure deal. He then co-founded a multi-million-pound marketing company, which he exited in 2015, and created Expert Empires. Today, Expert Empires is known as the UK's number one business event for Experts, with world-renowned celebrity speakers like Gary Vaynerchuk, Grant Cardone, Chalene Johnson, David Goggins, and Lewis Howes gracing the stage. Nick also specialises in helping Coaches, Consultants, Speakers, Trainers, and Authors take their businesses from zero to six figures and beyond through his Expert Empires Mastermind programme.

How Taking A Break From Alcohol Will Change Your Life - Ruari Fairbairns
Back On Track
On today’s episode is co-founder of One Year No Beer Ruari Fairbairns, who set up the company to help people take a break from alcohol and see the benefits it can bring to your life. But Ruari’s journey to setting up One Year No Beer wasn’t an easy one - he had quite bad ADHD as a child and struggled mentally, which even led to a number of suicide attempts by the age of just 13. Ruari has also always been a motivated entrepreneur - by his early 20’s he’d already set up a number of companies, and was even close to appearing on The Apprentice, but his first real success came when he was working as an oil broker in London. However, it was a job that involved a lot of drinking and entertaining, and this began to take a serious toll on the relationship with his wife. After doing 90 days alcohol free, Ruari was amazed at the benefits he felt, and left his job as an oil broker earning high six figures to start One Year No Beer and help other people reevaluate their relationship with alcohol too.
