    Ep 135 Awakening Your Aspirations

    Ep 135 Awakening Your Aspirations

    In an article in We Are the City, Viviane de Beaufort (a professor of European Law at ESSEC Business School and an expert in public policy and lobbying), explores the reasons why women were turning down professional leadership positions. The article showed that 80% of the women interviewed, feared the job title wouldn't reflect reality, and 36% cited imposter syndrome.
     
    With Joanna's purposefully curious nature, this written piece became the catalyst for this episode as she pondered whether we, as Introverts, repress our aspirations due to fear or limiting beliefs.
     
    Listen in as our Host helps us understand what aspirations are, discover how we as Introverts can reclaim ours authentically, and recognize the actions that will keep us in alignment with our purpose, goals, and aspirations.

    Ep 134 Daring to try something new

    Ep 134 Daring to try something new

    "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone" is a saying that's not quite true for many Introverts, including Joanna. As Introverts, we're naturally overstimulated mentally, so a space where we are safe, can be vulnerable, and recharge our batteries is what we need.
     
    But as Joanna said in this episode, we shouldn't stay in our comfort zones for so long that we become stagnant and resistant to change. The key to navigating this journey is to broaden the range of our comfort zones by continuously challenging ourselves.
     
    Listen in as Joanna shares her own experience of expanding her comfort zone by converting frequent flyer points into seats at the Eleven98 Chef's Table in London which turned out to be a most memorable evening. 
     
    KEYPOINTS:
     
    Definition of Comfort Zone Working at the outer edge of our comfort zones Joanna dared to try something new Having no expectations and going with the flow

A go-to resource

What profound insights and delivered in such a manner that draws you in.

Leah Trueman ,

Couldn’t stop listening!

From the first episode I heard, the paradox of introverts and visibility, I got hooked, I then listened all episodes in two days. Shares with a few friends and basically can’t believe I didn’t know about Joanna till now! The aha moments, the level of detail is so good but Joanna’s voice is her greatest asset. So calm and wise... thank you!

Martine Booth ,

Wonderful podcast

As a fellow introvert, I really enjoyed Joanna’s podcast! It’s really comforting when someone else understands the nuances of introversion x
