In brief

A wide-ranging conversation, covering: our individual journeys and how we became entrepreneurs, why that word feels weird and what entrepreneurship is like for INFs, we talk about feeling out of place in society,  intuitive coaching (and Lauren's "burrito" analogy), anxiety and information download, boundaries, energy, and the INFJ door slam, narcissism & emotional abuse, the different jobs we've had so far, goal-setting… and more.

Lauren's bio

I’m a writer, writing coach, and an INFJ. I also wrote the book The INFJ Writer, Firefly Magic and The INFJ Revolution, books for intuitive introverts, HSPs, empaths and all other sensitive, struggling artists. Read more.

Jas's bio

I curate INF Club, a blog + community + membership community designed to help INFPs, INFJs and other highly sensitives/intuitives thrive. I have a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) and left 'the city' in 2015. It's been a winding but rewarding journey. Read more.
