#23 Kelsey Snyder Ruzicka: How to Live Life Ready for New Opportunities

February 4, 2019

Kelsey’s world changed when she heard Janie, of Peak Motion Physical Therapy, speak at last year’s SDCEO conference. After hearing Janie’s story, Kelsey’s friend reached over and said, “Your time is coming.” Kelsey knew she was right, and later that day ran into an old friend whose reconnection led to the purchase of her company. Connecting with others, hearing their stories and changing perspectives is what this podcast is about, and that’s one reason this episode is so powerful.

Kelsey shares how she’s learned from every opportunity she’s had along the way, and how she’s used each new skill to prepare her for the jump into entrepreneurship. I can’t wait for you to hear this inspirational conversation with Kelsey!


In this episode, you’ll hear things like:

  • How to learn from every opportunity to prepare for what’s next
  • How to be patient in your career and life without being complacent
  • How to live your life ready for new opportunities
  • How to find inspiration in the words of others
  • How to show gratitude for the space you’re in right now


Favorite quotes from Kelsey:

  • “I kind of felt like a captain without a ship, ya know? An entrepreneur without a business.”
  • “I am ready. Where is this path already? Let’s run down it.”
  • “I was in the right place because I had to learn a lot of things, sometimes hard things, to be ready.”
  • “It’s often easy to focus on what you don’t have or what you’re not doing yet, and I think it’s even more important to be grateful for the moment and the space you’re in right now.”
  • “Even though you have to be patient, you can’t be complacent.”
  • “You got this, and you can do it.”
  • “I was living my life ready.”


A few questions I ask Kelsey:

  • What was the process like buying a business, and going from corporate to a full-time entrepreneur in 30 days?
  • What’s something you keep learning over and over?
  • What’s saving your life right now?
