Great platform to put a spotlight on Filipino creatives

Great platform to put a spotlight on Filipino creatives. Jaychrist was able to highlight not just the highlights/success of his guests, but also the journey that they went through - both good and bad. Must listen if you are in need of the push to finally take charge and design your own life.

Jessica Gulapa ,

The show that brings creatives to life!

Absolutely love & resonate with Jaychrist’s dedication to building up and helping the creative community. Finding it both refreshing and inspiring to find such a solid roster of talks from my favourite industry professionals and engaging speakers representing their own inspirational brands. Which is why it has also been an honor to have had the opportunity to talk on the show! Looking forward to more awesome content and the continued success of The Design Life Show!

Theemvillanueva ,

Real talk on the realities on entrepreneurship!

This is Alex P. What I love about Jay's podcast is that it's raw, real, and doesn't sugarcoat what it means to be a true entrepreneur. I had the privilege of speaking as a guest on Jay's podcast, and our chemistry in conversation and business acumen was outstanding. It would be great if the English language medium can further be polished in this podcast in the future so that it'll be more on an international standard and in par with the podcast brand's already awesome and passionate content. Highly recommend you go for a listen now. Cheers!
