EP. 90 // What is a happiness architect? w/ ALISHA JOY

Today we have happiness architect Alisha Joy on the podcast! Alisha is a gorgeously messy human who shares more in common with you than you might think. When she isn't painting on rocks or wrangling her tiny humans, she likes to write about some pretty amazing and uncomfortable topics: shame, belonging, self-love, vulnerability, grief, jealousy (you know, the fun stuff!) But the thing that really gets her fired up is happiness: how to create it, where to find it, and why we sometimes feel it's out of our reach. (Don't worry, it's NEVER out of our reach. Like, never ever.)

SUMMARY //

Alisha Joy starts off by explaining to A + K where the term ‘happiness architect’ derived from & the backstory of how she brought her services in this arena to Patreon. They also dive right into why she started painting rocks, what she does with them, and how her painted rocks Instagram account grew to what it is today. HINT: she got a little more honest.

…and speaking of HONESTY, Alisha and the girls also discuss her mantra of “tell the truth faster” and the almost-always lies people say: “It’s not a big deal” and “It’s fine.” Courage and vulnerability, says Alisha, are two sides of the same rock.
