Ep86: Sarah Jones Shares Secrets to Connecting in Love and Life

September 3rd, 2015 · Comments

Sarah_Jones_Introverted_Alpha_Headshot_5Sometimes, it’s good to mix a business with a little pleasure, and today’s guest is the perfect person to help us do that. We’re going to be talking about the introvert superpowers that we can tap into in order to form relationships, whether they’re romantic, platonic or professional.

While we often focus on various aspects of entrepreneurship in this podcast, I think it’s also important to address the more personal side of being an introvert. After all, how we show up in life is how we show up for our business. And how we form relationships is important whether we’re at work or at home. What I find interesting about my conversation with Sarah Jones is how often I notice the overlap between looking for love and networking, prospecting, or connecting with clients. And while Sarah’s focus is on introverted men, what she shares definitely offers insights for introverted women.


Sarah Jones founded Introverted Alpha to help smart introverted men attract women naturally. She’s been featured by Cosmo, Business Insider, The Good Men Project, YourTango, MSN, LifeHack, and more.

Ep80: Yes, And and Beyond: A Conversation with Improv Pioneer Bob Kulhan

May 6th, 2015 · Comments

Stand up in front of a group. No script. No prep. No rules. This is improv in a way. Its not quite as scary as that, even though that set-up is likely to send many an introvert running in the opposite direction. And in fact, what looks like a completely spontaneous improv situation actually DOES have rules, and there are ways to prepare yourself. Sure, theres no script, but life doesnt have a script, so who needs one?

Ive spoken several times over the years about the power of improv and how it can be a transformative tool for introverts. In this episode, I talk to one of the first people to put the principles of improv together with the world of business.

BobKulhan.jpgBob Kulhan is an Adjunct Professor of Business Administration for The Fuqua School of Business, Duke University as well as an Adjunct Professor of Business for Columbia Business School, Columbia University. He also is the CEO of Business Improvisations. BI is a world-class leader in developing experiential learning programs for businesses.

Bob and I start by defining improv (it might not be what you think!), then talk about how it has grown to be an exciting alternative to traditional professional development offerings. He also offers some basic improv principles you can use to make networking more enjoyable, as well as tips for getting yourself off the mental hamster wheel.
