Digital Relationships: Is it Joyful or Toxic?


In this episode, we are joined by therapist, life coach, yoga teacher and host of the fabulous podcast, The Joy Factor, Julie Hanson.  After listening to episode number 15 of her podcast called Digital Detox, I had to have her as a guest.  We discuss what taking a digital detox consists of and tips for guiding this in your life.  Then we move into how the digital world collides in positive and negative ways with our relationships.

Introverts: It’s About Energy


In this episode, I’m joined by Joan Shulman.  Joan has a coaching practice and she says, “I am a card-carrying introvert. Loved-ones have heard me say: “My favorite plans are the ones that get cancelled.” We discuss that whether you are introverted or extroverted or somewhere in between, it’s really about our energy.  This is a fun discussion with Joan around how she went from feeling like something was wrong with her more introverted personality to embracing it in her life.  We share our experiences in our business and personal lives with our personality types and we each name our introverted super powers.
