When I started this podcast, my #1 dream guest was Susan Cain. So, I'm very happy to bring this episode to you today.
Susan's 2012 book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking was my first introduction to introversion. The book changed my life (and thousands of others worldwide) because it changed how I saw myself.
It was through learning about introversion that I learned about high sensitivity; I wouldn't be typing this to you today without her book as the inception.
