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.

JO’S QUOTES

When you are creative, you tend to feel that so much of yourself is expressed in the work that you do.
— ON AUTHENTICITY
Something else would always be there to support you if you left whatever it is behind. You are never going to regret moving forward in your life as long as you know it’s the direction that feels aligned.
— ON TAKING RISKS
The beauty of being able to live in different countries helps create harmony within yourself. Certain places will feel very magical & beautiful for certain times in your life. Ride with that energy. And when you feel it has come at a full circle and your are learning the same lessons, you’ll get that feeling to move on.
— ON GEOGRAPHICAL PURPOSE
