Are You Highly Sensitive?
In a few weeks, I’m launching my first-ever online program, The Highly Sensitive Business Owner™, a 12-week program for Highly Sensitive and/or neurodiverse service-based business owners who want to reimagine their relationship to their work—and maybe destigmatize some sh*t while they’re at it.
One thing that’s come up a lot in my research is that the term “Highly Sensitive” is not universally understood.
So. Here are some indicators that you might be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)—
✅ Other people’s moods affect me.
✅ I am easily overwhelmed by things like bright lights, strong smells, coarse fabrics, or sirens close by.
✅ I have a rich, complex inner life.
✅ My nervous system sometimes feels so frazzled that I just have to go off by myself.
✅ I notice and enjoy delicate or fine scents, tastes, sounds, or works of art.
✅ I am bothered by intense stimuli, like loud noises or chaotic scenes.
✅ When I was a child, my parents or teachers seemed to see me as sensitive or shy.

Want to learn how to craft emails that inspire action and engagement WITHOUT the “tried and true” (cough: patriarchal) norms we’ve all been taught?
I’m doing it, and I can show you how to do it, too.
(But sometimes, I also like to write about the books I’m reading, or the creative process, or the entrepreneurial experience, or why I hate Steve Jobs, or how I met my BFF. I’ll send you emails like that, too.)
*Just kidding. It’s only an email list.
Books. Cats. Rants. Drawrings.
(and every couple months or so, an unexplained absence 🤷🏻)
