Arianna empowers people globally to stand Tall & Speak From the heart!

Graduation from university left Arianna Merritt, MEd, jobless and feeling lost, hopeless and unworthy. Instead of giving up on her dreams, she drew on her courage and dove into the unknown waters of blogging and entrepreneurship. She is now so grateful for her struggle as it lead her to find her purpose in life: empowering people en route to becoming their best selves! The platform she created from the ground up, The Self-Discovery Retreat (formerly Arianna’s Random Thoughts) is now in it’s 7th year and remains a safe haven for people globally seeking hope and brightness on their journey. Even well known leaders have shown up at the beach.  Through all her writing & teaching, Arianna guides people from self-doubt and vulnerability to a place of inner strength and perseverance. She wants all her visitors to know that: You matter. You are not alone. Things will get better.
