Advice Column for Introverts – Career, Business, Work-Life Harmony

Image: Advice Column for IntrovertsWelcome to the home page of my advice column for introverts.

I answer questions online about about living and working as an introvert.

I’m answering questions occasionally and I do love to hear from you. (Contact options listed below.)

In the past it was a syndicated advice column for introverts on Huffington Post and Quiet Revolution and you can find those below. (I am open to other advice column opportunities as relates to introverts and highly sensitive people and our work in the world.)

For now, I answer questions on my blog, my newsletter, and sometimes via Facebook video.

You can find featured selections that came from real questions via the links below.
