    Trying is Being is a grounded, practical, and often-entertaining newsletter that I truly enjoy consuming. Arno has a way of connecting with his readers through humility, insight, and sharing lessons applicable to aspiring creators and humans alike.

    I love his somewhat antithetical approach to sharing advice on topics around personal and professional development (see the "How I set DUMB goals instead of SMART ones" issue). It's refreshing, honest, valuable, yet light-hearted. A perfect weekly read to inspire creators, challenge their limiting beliefs, and help them break through the status quo on the way to achieving their individual goals.

    5 stars!

    Thought provoking, life affirming, catalyst for self improvement.

    Trying Is Being is grounding and inspiring, regularly reminding me to keep the focus on what matters the most in my life and make the most of my time.

    It’s easy to feel isolated as an entrepreneur, but each authentically written article is feels like a β€œAH HA!” coaching session.
