My name is Jolie and I’m an Introvert of the first water.
I am also a mother of five. Five rambunctious, never-slow-down-to-tie-your-shoes, people-loving kids who dragged me into the seething mass of humanity and never let me look back.

There’s a fine line between extreme confidence and being intimidating. While you might think you have a self-assured and commanding personality, others might perceive you as threatening and domineering.
Here’s how to tell the difference between the two – and what you can do to make sure you stay on the positive end of the spectrum.
When you’ve become burned out, you’ll feel emotionally and physically exhausted, detached from what you’re doing, and convinced that you have no energy left to do things right. If these feelings persist, you may feel trapped and increasingly desperate, knowing that you urgently need to make a change.
What you may be wondering is whether it’s your situation that’s leaving you burned out or if it’s your personality. Are some people naturally prone to burnout and, if so, can they take proactive steps to prevent it?

The world can be a beautiful and slightly overwhelming place for an Intuitive person. Sure, we may not go around looking at a crystal ball or reading fortunes in coffee cups, but we’re always collecting and processing data from our surroundings, and that can look a lot like "magic" from an outside perspective. Though everyone has a sixth sense ability within them, Intuitives tend to be much more in tune with their instincts.
If you identify with some of the traits below, chances are you’re an Intuitive type.
As a marketing coach who made no secret of being an Introvert, I had many business-owner clients confide to me their distaste for self-promotion.
“It’s not in me to brag,” said Len, a former corporate training company head now offering web development advice to firms in that industry.
“Marketing gurus tell us we need to show off and be in-your-face. To me that’s icky and not my personality,” said Donna, who specialized in family photography.
Introversion and extraversion are opposite ends of the personality spectrum. Few people sit right at the edges of the spectrum, however, and this means that extraverted personality types will show introverted tendencies when they need to and, likewise, Introverts will tap into their less-dominant extraverted side in certain environments and situations.

Ah, the elusive concept of perfect. We’d all love to meet the perfect person for us. Live in a perfect world. Golf a perfect game.
Productivity has become a hot topic in recent years. With the shift to remote working, more businesses are looking at ways to make their workforce as productive as possible, even when they’re not in the office. And outside of the workplace, people are looking for ways to manage their ever-busier lives, without resorting to caffeine or missing out on a couple of hours of sleep each night.
