The Soul of the Business with Amy Bell-Barroso: Episode 50
Amy Bell-Barroso considers herself to be a part of the raising “slasher” or “multipotentiality” trend. Her creative curiosity led her to explore a trifecta of interests spinning them into a successful, fulfilling career in Publishing, Design and Colour Psychology.
She is the Publisher, Founder, Creative Director and Chief Rainbow Warrior for United Colours of Design. A magazine helping creative professionals go from starving to THRIVING with meticulously curated content from Design Mentors, Business Experts, Lifestyle Columnists and inspiration through the Featured Artist Gallery, supports quantum growth in their business. She started this publication because she desperately wished there was a community and resource like this when she made her transition from the corporate world to the very challenging and unique world of creative entrepreneurship.
Amy also considers herself to be an Enchanted Graphic Artist, designing in the areas of marketing and advertising for over 30 years. Her design firm, White Lightning Communications has created enriched brand stories for many clients looking to add a little soul to their business.
For the last five of those 30 design years, she immersed herself in the psychology of colour by studying and becoming a practitioner and teacher of the Colour Mirrors Energy System. This is where she really began to understand that there is a much deeper conversation to be had about colour and how it impacts our designs, art forms, mood and journey on this planet. She now uses the psychology of colour to support her business clients in identifying auspicious colour selections and brand clarification as well as personal readings for those seeking spiritual awakening.
Amy lives just outside of Toronto Canada and is a proud mama to two fabulous young men who are now successfully and happily adulting… millennial style! She is also a kid-approved, super-fun step-mom to two more fabulous boys and Queen to the kindest, most supportive, loving King of her dreams.

- The United Colours of Design Magazine
- Choosing to run a magazine
- Providing an online platform and resource for creatives
- "Once you know more, you do more"
