I’ve got exciting news to share today, especially if you identify as an INFJ or INFP personality type, an empath, or a Highly Sensitive Person.
My friend Jasraj Hothi (author and founder of the INF club) and I put together a free online summit with video sessions featuring INFJ and INFP creators, entrepreneurs, authors, speakers, bloggers, and coaches.
We just opened registration this morning:

Every video session includes an INFJ or INFP sharing their experiences, their strategies, and their thoughts and feelings on living as an INFJ or INFP in a world that can be challenging for introverted intuitive feelers.
I’m on the Hearts Rise Up podcast today!
I had a good long talk with Carol Chapman about getting past my own addiction and creative paralysis to become a writing coach for INFJ and INFP writers. We also talked about the ways empaths and sensitive intuitives can begin to accept ourselves AND our unique gifts.
INFJs and INFPs don’t experience life the way other people do, and we don’t make art the way other people do either. That doesn’t mean we’re defective, it only means that it’s up to us to learn more about our intuition—our biggest strength—and begin to use it to write our book, launch our business, and rise up to be our best self.
Today’s guest post comes from Angela Schenk, a Success Coach for Bold Introverts, a writer, and the founder of Quiet Creative, LLC. She is focused on helping Bold Introverts—the quiet ones who have something to say—get their ideas out of their heads and into the world.
In one of my Mom’s old albums, there’s a photo of me in dance class when I was around four or five years old. The sight of it used to leave me feeling broken and embarrassed. Why? Because I was doing the wrong move. There’s a line of leotard-clad little girls all doing the same thing. And then there’s me doing something else entirely. For years, when I turned the page and saw the photo, I’d feel the urge to peel back the protective film and slip it behind another picture. There was a way things were supposed to be done—a perfect way—and here was concrete evidence that I wasn’t living up. This amounted to nothing short of a glaring character flaw in my mind.
The Intuitive Writing Course is now available for purchase!

(I’m releasing it a bit earlier than scheduled this morning because I know a lot of you are waiting)
Please note that this is NOT a live class. This is a self-directed video course that you can work through on your own, at your own pace.
INFJ and INFP writers aren’t like other writers. For us, writing is an emotional process first, and an intellectual exercise second. But because most of what we find in writing craft books and online writing sources only approaches writing from the mental side of things, we find ourselves continuously at a loss on how to move forward.
Once INFJ and INFP writers begin using the Intuitive Writing method, their entire world changes. After that, they might still hit roadblocks, but now they have tools and strategies to use. Now they know how to handle it when the anxiety kicks in and it seems they’ve come to standstill with their novel or memoir.
