Meet Deepak Chopra's Publicist of 15 Years and the Queen Of Reinvention
By: Mike Koenigs
Arielle is a leading personality in the personal growth and contemporary spirituality movement. For the past 30 years she has been living, teaching, and promoting consciousness through all forms of media. She is a celebrated love and relationship expert, author and speaker.
Here are a few of Arielle's many reinventions;
In 1987 she started her own PR firm, the Ford group, focusing on commercial real estate, residential real estate, art galleries, hotels, nonprofits. The business took off from the moment she opened the doors. She was hugely successful and it lasted for three and a half years until a recession hit.
In the span of six weeks she lost 80% of her business and it didn't look like it was coming back. In two months she went from 4,000 square feet of office space on Wilshire Boulevard and eight full-time employees to a small 250 square foot closet office with a half time employee and a ton of credit card debt.
But it turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to her because during this time, she discovered that she hated her clients. She was only in it for the money and she didn't want to reinvent that business.
So what now? She was lost. Questioning "Who am I? What do I do? What's my purpose?" She struggled for months until she went to lunch with a friend who asked "If you could represent anybody or anything, who would it be?"
She said "There's this guy. He's pretty unknown, but I think he's the best-kept secret in America. His name is Deepak Chopra." Her friend said, not only do I know who he is, my friend, Penny works for him! Later that day, Penny called and said, "This is so funny. Dr. Chopra called this morning and asked me if I could find him a publicist. And here you are!"
A week later, they met. Deepak said, I've only got five minutes and she said, great. I only need two. Then she said, "if you're half as smart as I think you are, you'll hire me" and he said DEAL.
Suddenly she was on this new path because her next client was Louise Hay, then Wayne Dyer, then Neale Donald Walsch, then Don Miguel Ruiz. She found her niche. One where she could marry her personal interest and skills in self-help and spirituality.
