Chase sits down with the world's top creators, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders and unpacks actionable, valuable insights to help you live your dreams in career, hobby, and life.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Words contain the power to transport you anywhere. No matter who you are and where you are in the universe, reading a story can trigger our imagination and lead to growth.
Today’s guest, Arianna Davis gravitated towards books and stories from a young age, setting the stage for a career that has, in a relatively short time, traversed the media landscape from Oprah Magazine to her current role as Editorial Director of the TODAY Show. Arianna’s love for books created a deep sense of empathy and a keen eye for story.
Arianna recently released her book, What Would Frida Do? The book is a unique lens on the life of legendary artist Frida Kahlo.
Looking at Frida Kahlo’s life as a masterpiece distinct from any single piece of art she created begs the question, “how can we create a masterpiece of our own lives?” This is the concept to keep at the top of mind as you press play and dive into the show.
