It’s here! I’ve been waiting 7 months to interview today’s guest on the True Grit and Grace show and it’s finally time to share him with you! I always love hearing him coach, I binge-listen to his podcast, and most exciting of all, he is speaking at our Unstoppable Success Summit in March!

Rudi Riekstins is an entrepreneur, international speaker, author, and coach. For more than two decades, Rudi has impacted thousands of people, who have experienced powerful transformation through his training, online courses, and group and private coaching.

Rudi is a leader called upon by leaders. Awarded Top #5 Coach by Thrive Global [alongside Tony Robbins, Jim Kwik, and Natalie Ellis] and honored by Business Insider as a Top 20 Thought Leader in 2021 [alongside Deepak Chopra, Lisa Nichols, and Dr. Joe Dispenza]. Rudi has consulted and/or coached start-up entrepreneurs, creatives, and public figures, all the way through to billionaire CEO’s on living more intentional purposeful lives.

In this episode, Rudi coaches us on how to shift our self-perception, how to be honest with ourselves, and how to transform discouragement into empowerment. I know you will take a ton of value from this conversation, and I hope you’ll join us in person in March to hear Rudi speak on stage at the Unstoppable Success Summit!
