Somehow this introvert has ended up being interviewed or featured in the press far more than my quiet side ever wanted!
I have to tell myself to just go with it because my passion for helping people find their easeful path is bigger than any resistance I have to the visibility.
I’ve been a selected writer for Huffington Post, Quiet Revolution, and Choice magazine. I have been featured in Psychology Today, Globe and Mail, New England Public Radio, The Introvert Entrepreneur, and seen in magazine articles in Entrepreneur, Fast Company, Money, and many others. You can find some of those stories below.[If you’re covering some news about me, you can find press kit materials here.]
