Do you want to live a more intentional life and unlock your creative spark?

Do you want to learn how to avoid feeling burnout?

Today, Kelly Wearsler joins us on the podcast to teach us how to create an environment that makes you happy, how to understand your own worth when creating a business, and how to train your own eye in order to improve your own home design. 

Kelly is a multi-faceted and award-winning creator of experiential residential, hospitality, commercial and retail environments, expansive collections of lifestyle products and thought-provoking brand collaborations. Her designs have redefined the design industry and influenced the rise of designer hotels and experiences. She is best known for her eclectic and maximalist designs that tell a story. Some of her clients include Gwen Stefani and Cameron Diaz

Today we get to learn about Kelly in a deeper way. She takes us through her own journey of self discovery, starting her business from the ground up, and the moment that her mind changed on her most valued creation to date, her family. 

Throughout our conversation, we explore the significance of designing spaces that evoke meaningful emotions. We also discuss strategies for ways to prevent burnout when juggling multiple projects.

Join us as we chat through living intentionally by using your environment to do so. You will love this episode if you are looking to make a change in your space! 

With Love and Gratitude,

Jay Shetty
