I like to think of her playbook as the Business Model Canvas of Branding - it is like a practical crash-course in branding. It also enables you to get creative and write down things you never knew you that you knew!

Taking this zoomed-out perspective of my career plan led me to see new connections between my ideas, which also gave me completely new ideas. This book helps to step out from all the imaginary boundaries that limit us to take important small steps towards our big goals.

Our students who have trailed the career direction and healthy habits books over the holidays and LOVE them! They make complex processes fun and engaging and enhance the learning experience.

A letter from Arta, the author.


Why most self-help books don't work? 


My answer:

Because the theory is just one step.

Have you ever read an awesome and super-motivating article or a book about how to improve your life/work etc? Sure you have. Me too. I also know that more often than not we don't actually apply the knowledge and tend to procrastinate with putting into practice that newly discovered amazing life-improving knowledge. Do we tend to spend too much time reading or watching videos and too little time applying that knowledge? And not only that - sometimes books are 3cm thick (with just words) or we finish a video and instantly go do something else without pondering about the topic of writing some thoughts down. 


I wanted to change this + make the reading process fun and add some thoughtful questions and exercises.

The other step is thoughtful action.

So I made workbooks that are SHORT, have tasks that make you THINK of how to apply that amazing life-changing knowledge and provides a place for your SCRIBBLES (notes, doodles, calculations, ideas etc.) so you get some results as you move though the playbook. And last but not least - they don't look like the other boring workbooks, because I hate boring design. I say, let your inner child out and have some FUN, write on all the free space, doodle, take you time.


These workbooks are made not only for personal use but also have been serving as practical tools for educators, psychologists, consultants, trainers of all sorts, providing a more engaging learning experience for students and clients.


About myself:

I am a Brand Designer with over 10 years of experience, a certified Coach and an eternal child. 


I love learning so much that I'm studying something all the time. I have been testing various self-discipline and self-coaching methods daily for years, coming up with my own short-fun-action oriented versions and now offering to you, the modern conscious human who's looking for a book that works.
