    Janis Wildy - Let's talk about writing a novel, England, and waking up to your life

    Back in July, I thoroughly enjoyed (virtually) meeting and recording with Janis Wildy, author of The English Bookshop.  Janis is a fellow Anglophile and tea lover, and it sounds like I have a future road trip buddy. 

    This episode's girl talk:
    Our mutual love of all things EnglishHer writing process Top 3 tips for someone looking to write a novelInspiration for The English BookshopThe fear and ultimate joy of solo travelWaking up to your life and feeling magnificent Janis Wildy is the author of The English Bookshop. She is a writer, Anglophile, and lover of books that take her to beautiful settings. She loves planners, peonies and Pimm’s Cup — although a dram of whisky or a cup of tea is always welcome. She lives in Seattle with her family and Labradoodle.

    Claire Lindsay - Let's talk about personal development, figuring out what we want and having fun

    In this episode, I catch up with one of my absolute favourite people, voiceover artist and digital nomad Claire Lindsay. It's been a while since we had a proper catch-up, but our Libra-Saggitarius connection is as strong as it ever was. It's an episode filled with laughter and fun, where we chat personal development, yoga, surviving divorce and changing the relationship we have with our finances. 
    Claire Lindsay is a Canadian actor, voiceover artist, adventure seeker, and entrepreneur who has been passionately following a path of spiritual growth and healing for over ten years. Integrating the valuable tools she's gained from acting and personal development into her life, she has seen a direct shift into a life lived in trust, grounding, authenticity, creativity, and joy.
