How I Made A Fortune On A Dumb Idea… 605 806 albinarippy

I must confess, that even though I am a yoga teacher, I used to think meditation was DUMB and a complete waste of time … until one day it led me to the best business decision ever resulting in a fortune.

It all started on New Year’s Eve of 2017 at our annual Ski & Yoga Retreat that my husband Roger and I lead at our very own Blue Sky Retreat Center in Taos, NM.  Every year people come to ski over the New Years and in the evenings I lead them through vision & goals or manifest coaching.  

A Vision Meditation is a magical process of opening up to the Universal guidance and seeing a snapshot of your future.  This process has always been very powerful for me, as I tapped into numerous ideas and creativity on how to innovate in my business, roll out new offerings, community event ideas, opening up a new yoga studio, adding a juice bar etc.

Roger and I led yet another successful yoga retreat and on our way back to Texas, as we discussed our experience, I shared “ you know, honey, something really weird happened.  For the first time ever, yogaOne, our yoga business, was not in my vision meditation.” Roger replied in astonishment “I was surprised that it was not in my meditation either”

I wondered what it could mean and Roger joked “we must have sold it!”

At the time, it was an unimaginable thought.  After all, we did not know anyone who could just walk in and buy 7 yoga studios.  We brushed off this idea, as something impossible, far fetched and unrealistic.

And yet, the Universe works in the most mysterious ways.

Two days later, Roger led a yoga class and after class a visiting yogi came up to him “hey man, have you ever considered selling your yoga studios?” 

“well, as a matter of fact, just 2 days ago, my wife and I have entertained this idea for the first time ever” Roger responded somewhat shocked by the synchronicity of it all.

“YogaWorks is expanding and their expansion plan is to acquire a bunch of successful yoga studios across the country.  You should check them out, man”

All it took is 1 phone call and a week later, we were sitting at a table with the CEO and general counsel of YogaWorks, the world’s only publicly traded yoga company.  10 months later, we sold our 7 yoga studios, got rid of all of our worldly possession, packed up our bags, grabbed our kids and took off the travel the world for a year.  2 years later, Coronavirus forced almost half of all yoga studios to shut down in bankruptcy.

When people ask me “was it always your plan to start, expand and eventually sell your yoga studios?”  I always reply “I am not that smart. It was all divine guidance that came to me in a vision meditation.  I was simply open to receive and obey that guidance.”

Something that I once considered dumb, opened up my ability to co-create with the Universe, shape my destiny and live the life of my dreams.
