In this episode I talk to fellow introvert Summer Mingo. We talk about how we’ve learned to not only come “out” of our shells but to grow into them.

I relate our experience to that of a hermit crab. It’s shell might be mistaken as any other shell, but it is uniquely the environment, the context in which the hermit crab resides.

We all have our own space and, own context by which we are living our life right now. You too have an experience that is different from anyone else's, and different from what it looks like 5 or 10 years ago. Your shell is your life, right now.

And, like the hermit crab, one day you will outgrow that shell in search for a new shell, some new career opportunity or some new relationship or new passion you want to pursue...whatever that new space looks like for you it will be different somehow and it might represent a new challenge, a space that you will have to grow into.

Together, Summer and I explore what it means to grow into that space, how that journey will also be one of discovering what it means to live authentically, and what that actually means for deep-thinking, highly sensitive introverts.

Summer shares some amazing insights into how she has grown in her ability to connect & make friendships, how she shows up on social media, and how she prepares to show up to new situations as a leader. Join us as we explore what it means to lean into that discomfort and grow toward authenticity.


In this episode I talk about a free mini course and it’s called “An Introvert’s Guide to Getting Unstuck.” It is a free 45 minute mini course.

In the workshop I guide you through a series of journaling prompts, ACT-based exercises, and ways to navigate through your individual stuck points as an introvert. Go to my website to get access to it and check it out!
