Hobbies We Love To Share

Have you ever had a thought that pops up over and over again; one that you can’t ignore?

That’s been happening to me lately. The other day, I was listening to the Twila & Natalie podcast, and they were talking about hobbies – ones they are proud of, and ones they were not-so-willing to admit! It made me realize that all of us have hobbies that we love, and sometimes they go beyond what people call “normal” activities. However, it doesn’t matter where our interests lie on the “embarrassing” spectrum. They are all special to us (and as I often say, who cares what those people think, anyway?).

Networking and Finding Clients: Interview with Megan Hazel Designs

Welcome back to the Introvert’s Bubble Podcast. I am pleased to introduce you to Megan , the owner and graphic designer at Megan Hazel Designs. We will be chatting about how Megan built a full-time with business in a YEAR, how she networks and finds clients, and (most importantly to us!) the benefits of working alone.  

Even though Megan majored in media and broadcasting in college, she “kind-of” went to school for graphic design, too. She quickly fell in love with the art, so she decided to leave her post-college job at a coffee shop to hustle-hard in creating logos and small designs for new businesses.

How to Survive Wedding Season

There are just so many events! Public question-popping, then the engagement party, not to mention the wedding shower, bachelor or bachelorette parties...the list is long. Very long., Then you are expected to dress up, bring gifts, and interact with lots of people that you don’t know? Nightmare.

The Benefits of Planning Your Time

Today, we will be talking about scheduling and planning your time. But before all of you introverted free-spirits snuff at the idea of being “boxed in”, hear me out, because this is a life skill that can benefit anyone’s life and wellbeing.

We all must stay organized in life, am I right? I mean, it is somewhat necessary to keep our lives in order so we don’t live in complete chaos. And you may think that as an introvert, you are safe from experiencing disorder. But even though we like to stay safe in our own little world, there are going to be times where we just have to go out and socialize, network and engage with people (our version of “chaos, right?). Families, friends, co-workers, doctors…it is inevitable that we will have to exchange a word or two with them every now and then.

Get That Money: Side Hustlin and the Introvert

Nowadays, I have found that jobs are not very secure. And since not many of my friends and family know what it is that I do for work, I decided to dedicate this episode to the art of the side hustle. 

What is a side hustle?

It is a job that you have, in addition to your 9-5, to make some extra money. Whether it be temp/seasonal job or all-year; online or in-person.

Introversion vs Anxiety

Man, the holiday season is upon us. Dun Dun DUUUUUUN. Ok, a little dramatic. But for those of us introverts and ones who have anxiety this time of year is a gauntlet.

With all the extra obligations and responsibilities from friends, family, and work we need to guard ourselves. Strictly scheduling out time with people and time for ourselves. On top of that, any time you get with big groups a people there will be anxiety. Worrying about what people will say, what you will say, whether or not you're dating/getting married/pregnant/having another kid/ etc can raise your blood pressure.
