Designing your life using design thinking with Brittany Arthur

Brittany Arthur is someone who does not let the circumstances dictate what she can do! Brittany has been running her Japan based business from Mexico since Covid restrictions made it impossible to return to Japan. In the last year, she has also joined us in the podcasting world with her show: Business Karaoke. I love that name and you will love what Brittany has to share about how you can take “design thinking”, what she helps Japanese organisations with, into your own life and apply it to issues you have. I even share a recent Nakata household situation for Brittany to troubleshoot!
