Are you an Introvert or an Extravert?

I was in a coaching session the other day and found myself explaining the differences between introverts and extraverts.

How can you know for sure if you are an introvert or an extravert?

Yes, it’s true. There are those online tests everywhere, but most aren’t accurate and really don’t know what they are doing.

They are more confusing than helpful, honestly…

Be known as an expert by niching down (on a topic you love)

Be known as an expert by niching down (on a topic you love)

When you have lots of interests, It seems impossible to focus on just one thing. Multi-passionate people are in a never-ending quest for growth and learning.

The spiritual lesson of choosing your niche

Are you resisting the idea of choosing a niche? There is a saying: “What you resist, persists” that applies to what most coaches, healers and therapists do when it comes to finding their niche.

Too many business ideas? (How to choose)

Too many business ideas? (How to choose)

I don’t know you personally, but if you are in any way like me, you tend to have a lot of ideas.

More than you can act upon.

Right now, on top of my branding & business reinvention coaching, I’d love to start a personal growth blog with a Jungian perspective. I want to run a Dreamwork group for conscious solopreneurs.

What do Harry Potter, H. G. Wells, and your business have in common?

The reason?

At the time of writing this article (August 2019), more than four million one hundred and forty-seven blog posts are being published today, according to worldometers.

That can be a good thing.

It means you literally have information about every topic under the sun at your fingertips.
