I love the tips for managing energy draining situations. Keep the podcasts coming!
Just listened for the first time, and I just LOVE Cat! I feel so inspired! Needed this!
Nobody gets me in this EXTRO world!
Cat is great. Ever since growing some pride in my introversion (there are things WE EXCEL IN!) thanks to Susan Cain's Quiet, I've been more accepting of who and how I am.
Cat is an excellent guide in this effort. She speaks directly to the challenges and strengths of ME, as a creative introvert. Not everyone can claim those descriptives, so it is super helpful to have a mentor via this podcast (and her site, and her newsletters) to keep my spirits up and my creative juices flowing!
Anyway, it's free so just download it and listen to her cute accent.
