EP. 01 - Jo ChunYan
For this episode I’ve invited Jo ChunYan. She’s an Intuitive Brand Designer from Australia who works for conscious businesses and brands.
She helps them connect back into the energy and essence of their business, and then find a visual representation of it. She has a Design studio, but there’s also a lot of intuition work and coaching involved, which is quite unique to me.
The reason why I’ve decided to interview Jo is to show to you that being authentically yourself and tapping into your gifts, you can craft a career and a life that is fully aligned with who you are, effortlessly. The right people who need your services, your work, your talent will come to you, no matter what.
Enjoy the interview.
