The Vari Longmuir Podcast

By Vari Longmuir
I'm Vari. I'm a certified life + business coach.

I work with busy, successful business owner parents.

I teach them a rinse-and-repeat process to set and achieve impossible goals, without neglecting their kids or themselves.

This weekly podcast offers a fresh perspective on work/life balance to stop you from feeling like you're failing at both.

Along with my insights + lessons learned from over a decade of being my own boss.
