The Year of Fun #35: Visit a Medium

Oh boy am I hesitant about sharing THIS one: the one in which I visit a medium. As in, someone who channels spirits.

I’ve been in two minds trying to decide what fun I could share with you this week – you might have noticed I missed last week’s fun update, and that was because I was away in Menorca (a small Balearic island) and had a pretty impossible wifi connection. So my debate was whether or not […]

CIP072: Jean Smith on Flirting for Introverts

In this week’s episode of the Creative Introvert podcast I talk to Jean Smith, social and cultural anthropologist and social intelligence coach. This podcast is BY FAR the one I’ve most hesitated to publish because… I get coached. I don’t get coached on something you might expect either – not a topic we normally tackle on […]
