- Uses Kajabi's automations to maximize operational success
Being a multi-million-tier Kajabi creator, Fish has found significant business success through his unique approach to emotional wellness. Somatiq Breathwork aims to help individuals find and express themselves in their unique way by unlocking emotions on the mat.

The Challenge: Balancing Authenticity with Online Integration
Before Somatiq took its first breath, Fish found himself grappling with a recurring issue — capturing a sustainable market fit for his innovative and fresh idea. Launching a business that offers an entirely different product comes with its unique set of challenges. Fischer admitted,
"One of the biggest challenges of starting a business is getting to product-market fit, and getting the right customers."
With a novel approach to emotional wellness, there were early hesitations about how his new breathwork practitioner certification courses would be received. Fish perfectly encapsulated the struggle of every empathetic entrepreneur: "I think most entrepreneurs come from life in a very penetrating way. They're like, this is my idea, I love it, and I want the world to love it too." This deep personal passion inspires entrepreneurs to persist, yet the inevitable challenges and rejections can take a considerable toll. These struggles became a part of Fish's journey, an intricate part of his challenge. He saw them not as burdens but as stepping stones toward his goal.
The Solution: Business Expansion Made Easy with Kajabi
Kajabi found its way into Fish's entrepreneurial journey just as he needed it.

"I used the automations from Kajabi to really help with that," Fischer says, pointing to the scalable solutions Kajabi provided.
