EP 95 We Interrupt Our Regularly Scheduled Program ...
I’m taking a break for a couple of months, but first I want to thank a few people.
There's some distortion of the sound in this episode. I think I got a bit too close to the mic in all my excitement.
EP 94 Avoiding Overwhelm in a Time of Crisis
It's hard to focus, to feel like you can do what needs to be done when there's chaos around you when you're living in a time of crisis, but we can’t just bury our heads in the sand. So how do we avoid overwhelm and keep moving forward?
EP 93 Starting Points
It doesn’t matter how good your map or your plan is, if you don’t know where you’re starting from.

EP 91 The Benefits of Doodling (with guest Giulia Forsythe)
Educator and visual note-taker extrodinair, Giulia Forsythe joined me to talk about how doodling helps her be a better listener, problem solver and communicator. She also explains why she shares her doodles openly and freely.
Check out Giulia’s amazing doodles on her web site https://gforsythe.ca/visual-notes/ and her Flickr account https://www.flickr.com/photos/gforsythe/albums

Sketchnote Handbook is a great physical book to reference.
Mike Rhodes has a few video webinars online so something like this might be just as good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZZq5W8FY2A

Love this podcast! Smooth, easy listening!
Short bites of wisdom
I’m trying to break my bad habit of listening to depressing news stories in the morning. This is fast becoming one of my go-to substitutes—something encouraging, positive and wise, but also very realistic and relatable. Thanks for the podcast!
Great podcast and so relevant!
Hey Heather...Amy from the Prosecco N Prose podcast. Listened to your Episode 17 with Jennifer. Thank you for the book recommendations. May do two of the books you shared on your show in the future for our virtual book club podcast. Love your show and plan to come back and listen again.
