I was recently interviewed by the American Real talkshow! The host Roger Brooks and I talk about my experience of being an introvert, how I've built a career around it, having a passion for traveling, and ramen Fridays with my dog. You can watch the episode below or on Youtube here: https://youtu.be/rtzeU6chLII
Being a naturally shy and anxious introvert, I must admit that I never thought I’d survive an in-person interview like this! At least not without a panic attack or sliding out of the seat from sweatiness. I’m happy to say that I was surprisingly comfortable, I maintained a reasonable heart rate and body temperature, and I even enjoyed it! Over the last couple of years I’ve started having to do more of this type of stuff, like podcast interviews, video tutorials, teaching workshops, etc. Each time I do something that I think is scary, it somehow makes the next thing slightly less scary. It becomes part of my arsenal of things to remember when I’m nervous, a reminder that I’ve already done scary things and I’m still fine. So I’ll do the next scary thing and I’ll be fine then, too.
