This podcast is designed to help creative individuals like you explore different ideas on how to build a career or business around your purpose and passion. Hosted by Arriane Serafico. // Because designing a meaningful life doesn’t come with an easy-to-follow, one-size-fits-all roadmap. The key, I believe, is to approach it as a creative process in itself. And no matter where you are right now in that process — whether it’s the beginning, middle, or you’re feeling completely lost — this podcast is for you. (Just a tiny disclaimer: This podcast has heavy undertones of design thinking, entrepreneurship, human-centered design, and unapologetic feminism.)

Just finished listening to the first episode and I loved it. It slaps me with the reality and made me realize stuff which will help me focus more on the important tasks for my passion project. This will be my new daily dose of positivity! Keep inspiring others, Arriane.
P.S. — you did great ♥
It's just the first episode and you did it so well!
I recommend this podcast to people who want to carve their own path, but still confused with what to do next. Arriane's podcasts are clear and concise—and they're easy to follow. It's up for us on how we should do it—for we are the ones who take action and make it a success.
Super loving it so far!
I'm no stranger to Arriane's topics having enrolled in one of her classes before, but it's so great that I can finally listen to her teachings during work hours too, which is usually my peak time of podcast consumption. Her ideas are quite brave but also very doable because she outlines steps very clearly, and listening to each episode always gives me a feeling of excitement about my own creative work. Also, Arriane's voice is really pleasant to listen to (a must for me re: poscast hosts) haha! Keep up the great work! :)
