    How To Decide Your Next Step In Business

    Whether you’re an internal processor, an overthinker, or a little indecisive, it can be difficult to decide your next step. It might be a business decision, quitting your job, or a myriad of other micro decisions during the day, if you’re a more introverted type, there’s a good chance that you spend a lot of your energy just trying to work out what comes next.

    Finding Your Flow As An Overthinking Introvert

    Finding Your Flow As An Overthinking Introvert

    As you may know by now, energy is at the foundation of just about everything I do an talk about. Being in flow is, I guess, another way of being in alignment with our own truth and our soul's desires.

    But in a world that has conditioned us against listening to that innate inner knowing, finding our flow isn't always easy.

    In this episode, I'm talking about
    ✨ What most keeps us OUT of alignment (and why that feels safe);

    ✨ One simple thing we can do to come back to our flow state;

    ✨ What happens when we commit to this every day - even when it feels hard.

    S3E7 Carving Out A Quiet, Creative Life with Katie Vaz

    S3E7 Carving Out A Quiet, Creative Life with Katie Vaz

    Katie Vaz wrote the book The Escape Manual for Introverts and has so many insights and thoughts about going against the grain as a creative person and graphic designer to carve out her own quiet life and business in Upstate New York.

    It's so refreshing to hear her talk about trusting her intuition and doing what felt good, even though she wasn't sure about it at the start.

    In this episode, we also talk about:

    // Following your inner voice to make decisions in your career or business that might look different from others;

    // Not following the crowd or what everyone in your industry is doing - even if that feels scary;

    // Creating a business that's quiet and in alignment with more introverted traits, whilst balancing the more outgoing parts of business, making a deeper one on one connection instead of going to networking meetups;

    // Doing your work and putting it out into the world, so that people find you;

    // Being committed to the long term game in your business, it takes time for your work to get known;

    // Creating art that helps people express themselves;

    // Where the idea of The Escape Manual For Introverts came from - making being an introvert playful and funny;

    // Creating a book that gives funny and useful excuses for getting out of situations when people still don't really understand introverted types;

    // How to promote work or be part of bigger project and managing your energy as an introvert.
