EPISODE 5: Harness your passions into projects with Wanissa Somsuphangsri

Wanissa was a speaker at the Typism Conference on the Gold Coast and I have discovered over the years that Wanissa and I share two passions. One is dogs and the other is playing Gardenscapes. Wanissa has decided to turn one of these passions into a creative side-business called Dapper Pupper. 

The idea to build a business hand lettering bandanas for dogs evolved organically out of a combining of multiple passions and interests, so we’ve asked Wanissa on to the Typism podcast, to talk about how to harness your passions into projects.

 "Passion projects are a great way to develop your own creative voice"—Wanissa Somsuphangsri

In today’s podcast episode, you will discover:

  • The difference between a passion project and a hobby
  • How to grow your passion project organically
  • Ways your passion project can expand your network
  • How to find your own voice through a passion project
  • Why you should listen to your five-year-old self.
