One of the gifts of producing these podcasts is that I get to talk to interesting, heart-centered people who are blazing a trail in their own introverted fashion. I learn something from every conversation, and this edition of The Introvert Entrepreneur taught me many things. I learned about the gift of bright shiny objects, how being an introvert affects how we show up – and not show up – and why letting our work speak for ourselves only gets us so far. I also learned a gentle way to tell others what we need as introverts, an exercise for being a better writer… and more!
My guest is Mary Anne Radmacher; she is an artist, poet, author, introvert and entrepreneur. Mary Anne is the author of 11 books, among them HONEY IN YOUR HEART and LEAN FORWARD INTO YOUR LIFE.

I’m finding that promoting myself is very exhausting. Mary Anne’s words of wisdom helped me understand how important it is to step back and rest, then get back in there!
Really great interview, Beth. So many gems from Mary Ann. Hearing her talk about her awareness of her health, her realizations through her life experiences was something I identified with on a very personal level. I think I will bookmark this and come back and listen to it again. There’s just so much.
One gem that comes to mind was the importance and differences there are with writing by computer and writing by hand. It is so true! I’ve found that I experience two different types of creative flow and have come to use that for my advantage.
This was super. I have taken a course with Mary Anne and she has made a profound impact on me and my life. Her direct, gentle, and wise nature comes through as you listen here, and as you work along side her as your “coach”.
Would you still be able to share the information for the FB group Mary discussed about the food allergies? I have a daughter how struggles with both dairy and peanut allergies. Thank you and I have just found your work as well on this podcast as an introvert myself I connect very well to your experiences.

Welcome! So glad you found the podcast. Thanks for being a new listener. The FB page Mary Anne mentioned was called Life Gain, and I’m not finding it when I do a search. It might have been removed (since our conversation was a few years ago, much can happen in that time!). I did find this page: https://www.facebook.com/kidswithfoodallergies You might find it useful, if you’ve not already discovered it. Best wishes to you and your daughter!
