Life Lessons From
The Business Yogi
Currently, I'm reading a book called "Life & Work Principles" written by Ray Dalio, the founder of the world's biggest hedge fund firm, Bridgewater Associates, which manages $160 billion.
In his book, Ray Dalio says that meditation has helped him tremendously and recommends that we seriously consider exploring it.
“Meditate. I practice Transcendental Meditation and believe that it has enhanced my open-mindedness, higher-level perspective, equanimity, and creativity. It helps slow things down so that I can act calmly even in the face of chaos, just like a ninja in a street fight. I’m not saying that you have to meditate in order to develop this perspective; I’m just passing along that it has helped me and many other people and I recommend that you seriously consider exploring it.”

In another interview, Ray Dalio credits meditation for being "the biggest ingredient" of whatever success he's had.
"Meditation more than anything in my life was the biggest ingredient of whatever success I've had."
― Ray Dalio, Founder and Chief Investment Oﬃcer of Bridgewater Associates, in conversation at the John Main Centre for Meditation and Inter-Religious Dialogue at Georgetown University.
Our today's guest is not only a successful entrepreneur and business owner, but he is also a Certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher and his Twitter profile describes him as, a practical dreamer who gets shit done.
In today's episode we'll be chatting with Armen Mardirousi, who is also known as The Business Yogi.
Armen is the CEO of Neolynx Group, a firm that specializes in Web Design and Inbound Marketing services. One of his startups, cvoffers.com, recently secured 8 Million dollars in seed funding from, Anderson Capital Group, a private equity firm.
Here's a quote from his latest Instagram post that I find interesting:
"To remember who you are, you must forget who they told you to be."
