Episode – 039 If You Couldn’t Fail…: Interview with Anne Ruthmann

Anne Ruthmann is a photographer, blogger, reiki practitioner and abundance strategist. Through her various lines of work, she helps her clients understand the possibilities available to them and realize the kind of lives they could leave, as exemplified in her TEDx Talk “What Would You Attempt If You Knew You Could Not Fail?” She knows firsthand that there’s no shame in wanting to spread yourself across multiple interests instead of just specializing in one.

In this episode, Anne discusses why she enjoys being a Jack (Jill, rather) of all trades, reveals how she got into reiki, and reveals that even dream jobs have a daily grind.

The Finer Details of This Episode:

– Anne gets into the subject of her TEDx Talk and what inspired her to discuss it.

– Why the idea of excelling in only one thing never resonated with Anne.

– What exactly reiki is and how Anne uses it to help her clients.

– Anne lays out her plans for travelling the world.

– If it was literally impossible for you to fail, what steps would you take to achieve your dreams?

– Understanding that the dream job you think you want may not be as fulfilling as you think—and that’s OK!


“If you don’t feel like you have everything figured out then everything is an opportunity.”

“I am such a multi-passionate person that having that one thing never felt quite right for me.”

“I’m comfortable travelling alone. It’s just not, to me, as adventurous or as exciting as sharing it with other people.”

“You can always go back to the thing that you know well and the thing you’ve already done.”

“If you fail, you can always go back to where you are right now. And that’s not so terrible.”
