We had the good fortune of connecting with Ania Volovique and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ania, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
I don’t believe there’s such a thing as work life balance…at least not for me. I see them both so intertwined, there’s no need to balance. It’s all life. It’s a constant dance. Sometimes one is leading and the other follows, then it shifts. If I try to balance it, I’m forcing something out of its natural rhythm.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
When I got diagnosed with brain cancer, I became committed to find the root cause and truly heal from the inside out. My own healing journey inspired me to guide others back to health and wholeness. Our bodies are our greatest allies and will often communicate through illness and dis-ease. Our mindset plays a huge role in how we perceive the world and the beliefs we choose to adapt. I combine the art of photography and mindset coaching to guide my clients back to themselves. No matter what “worst-case scenario” might be present, they see the real blessing and lesson in it. Once they understand, embrace and celebrate who they are – their life shifts to one of wholeness. They start living in their purpose without subscribing to society’s idea of success. It’s the greatest feeling ever to see someone awaken to the Truth of their soul and shine unapologetically.
