Arian Paras of Olympia Coaching, headshot with multi colored light halo in background

My guest Ariane Paras is a coach for music artists and industry professionals. After working in the music business for 15 years, and as a result of a lot of stress, late nights (and way too many hangovers), Ariane says she is very aware of the realities of the industry behind the scenes. Witnessing the work-hard/party-hard lifestyle and watching so many artists and colleagues struggle or burnout, she decided she wanted to help change things. Her way of helping was to create coaching programs that help music artists and industry professionals feel clear, balanced, and confident about themselves and their future. 

Ariane says she always wanted to work in the music industry and has, in dream jobs, working for British labels and programming the Razzmatazz club in Barcelona. She supposes life looked like a big party from the outside and that she ought to be happy. Her work actually lead to chronic exhaustion, dissatisfaction, quitting jobs, relocating twice, and eventual professional crisis. Then she became highly interested in personal development, eventually committing to her own self-work. Ariane has trained with the Coaches Training Institute to become a life coach so she could help others on their journeys. 

On a somewhat personal note, Ariane is a self-admitted big fan of Phil Collins (so am I). We talk about this, that dream-jobs don’t equal happiness, burnout, and the importance of finding joy, confidence, and happiness.
