Have you found that one person who just "gets you"? As an intense and spirited person, it can be a challenge to find connection and community with other like-minded people. This is exponentially true if you are an introvert or have any kind of social anxiety. 

Aurora shares how having a strong foundation of community and acceptance has helped her to create her own community wherever she goes.

In this episode, Aurora discusses:

  • How making a friend as an adult out of school can be like asking someone out on a date.
  • The steps she took to make new friends in a new town.
  • Pitfalls to avoid when reaching out to others.
  • How you can join her community of gifted women for our first live "unconference."

We all have a Big Idea. A dream that is bigger than a dream, and it just might actually work out. So where do you get your Big Ideas? Do you have a plan in place to make that happen? When push comes to shove, sometimes it takes something, or someone, to help us get our dreams into motion. For an Intense woman, (especially an intense mom), it can be much more daunting to put those ideas to work on your own. We need someone who gets it to encourage us on our adventure.

Aria Leighty is a glitter-loving Mother and Business owner who loves to connect and support other Moms with their Big Ideas. Aria knows a thing or two about controlling the chaos that we Intense Women can sometimes stir up for ourselves. From years of practice honing her fire, Aria has turned her own Big Ideas into the MOB Northwest, a group supporting the efforts of Business Savvy Moms that has been a huge success. Learn from Aria’s experience and be encouraged by her empathy and passion as she and Aurora talk about what it means to make it big!

Have you ever confused passion for drama? As an intense person, you may crave intensity in a partner, but when two intense people get together there can be challenges with meshing two strong personalities together. 

Aurora found this to be true in her first relationship and assumed it was just a biproduct of two intense people getting together. She has since learned that it is possible to have intensity and passion in a relationship with minimal drama!

In this episode, Aurora shares:

  • A personal account of her major relationship milestones. 
  • What it looked like for her when she found passion without the drama.
  • The key elements in maintaining good communication between two intense people.

Growing up, we all looked up to some kind of role model: a teacher, a parent, a celebrity, or a mentor. What steps did they take to accomplish a goal? How did they get to where they are going? Sometimes, even in our adult lives, we need a role model—someone who has harnessed their intensity in a positive way and found success in their personal and professional life. This week’s guest on “Embracing Intensity” is Brittani Nelson, and she is without a doubt a role model for the Intense and Excitable woman.

What does it really look like to harness intensity in a constructive way? Brittani and Aurora chat this week about what a superpower intensity can be! Brittani is truly the Business Matchmaker with a focus on constructing a community, not just a network. In building her business, she used her intensity to start and grow her scope, tackle being a single mother, and engage in a new romantic relationship all at once! It seems like an impossible task, but tune in this week to see the simple, practical steps that Brittani uses to embrace her life and chase her dreams.

 

Also in this week’s episode:

  • Hear Brittani’s community mindset for her Business and Networking Strategy
  • Learn how mutually beneficial relationships between businesses and clients can truly build community.

  • Two types of overthinkers she's observed in her League of Excitable Women group. 
  • The common thread that ties overthinkers together.
