We had the good fortune of connecting with Va’rai Unique and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Va’rai, Tell us about a book you’ve read and why you like it / what impact it had on you.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Unlocking your Renaissance’ which was a workbook that I recently created to help transform the readers mindset and inner dialogue using positive psychology and neuro-linguistic programming that I use with my clients. Within the workbook I have added exercises that will help users learn how to be persuasive without coming across abrasive, and transform any disappointment or anger they may have into compelling dialogue. I have incorporated guided NLP exercises and personal assessments questions to activate the mind for success and greatness. Even though I was the author of this workbook I read, utilised and applied the tools I included to help myself because every life coach needs a good life coach. This workbook impacted me in a really deep powerful way as it helped me check my blind spots, see and understand any negative patterns I may have had and then I was able to completely transform them. Unlocking your renaissance brought me the creative rebirth I needed through the 12 steps covered, which is why I will be selling it on amazon and all major platforms in the next few months (it is currently available for pre-order on my website).

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am a certified self-actualisation coach but started my journey in self development after getting an accreditation as a psychoanalytic and behavioural counsellor. After some time working as a therapist and life coach I decided to study NLP (neuro-linguistic programming). I now infuse all three methods according to the needs of who I am working with, whether that’s individuals or corporate teams.

What sets me apart from others in the same industry is my willingness to go the extra mile for my clients and also the personal growth and behavior modification you will experience! I have services that cater to everyone’s price point, including self-development journals, workbooks, courses.

My digital products are inclusive, impactful, all while providing you with self-actualization and knowledge that transcends time. My new accountability journal is ready for pre-orders now, so go and purchase it on my website so you can set new goals and have direct guided help from me while achieving them.

Now my entrepreneurial endeavors don’t stop there. I also co-own (and actively take part in) a branding and business management agency called ‘Variety Elixir’. Some of the services we provide include website building, website updating, PR/marketing, business optimisation & much more. We work with individuals, new startups, and popular brands. If you need anything business related then please reach out to our team as we would love to help you elevate your personal brand and/or business.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
When my friends come to visit me from out of town I take them to my favourite LA hotspots. Some of the places that I absolutely love are; Avra Beverly Hills, Ocean Prime, Mr Chow, Catch, Openaire and sometimes I will grab a salad from Sweetgreens after a gym session at equinox or hot yoga 8. Not only do all of these places serve great food but they also have the finest ambience. My love for Roof-top bars are also an ideal place for me to take my visitors because the breath-taking panoramic views of Los Angeles are priceless.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
