Okay, so after last week's episode with Kristen Kalp, I saw this post in the Facebook group and I had to bring it to you guys for a minisode question, brought up posted and said this week's episode about turning the volume up on who you are and who you present yourself as to the world and doing it slowly and consistently. It really hit home for me. So I appreciate all the wisdom that was shared by Emily, Kathleen and Kristen, thank you for that. One thing that really struck me was when Kristen talked about how we don't have many positive examples of who have turned up the volume past six or seven. So she's wondering, could you share business owners that you know are great examples of volumes seven through 10. For some inspiration, she spent the majority of her life being told that she was too much or too happy or too weird or too smart or too talented, or whatever else insecure people like to say too loud, creative, mega spiritual extroverts that like to do things differently. It really hurt over a long time, especially when she was really young and figuring out the way the world works. But she spent many years embracing who she is and sharing that with the world anyway. So thanks to this episode, she's going to actively make sure she turns the volume up just a tiny bit every single day from now on. she feels like she's been at a solid six for the past few years. And now she's aiming for a nine. So who are some good examples of business owners past level seven that she can look up to?
Emily Thompson 3:03
My first thought was Jasmine Star. I feel like she's one of those people who is just so herself and so just loud about it and fantastic. She's just the first person that came to mind for me. So Jasmine star. Oh,
Kathleen Shannon 3:19
I love that mine was Beyonce, of course. I mean,
Emily Thompson 3:22
I love that. Jasmine, you and Beyonce.
Kathleen Shannon 3:25
I think that it's easy to look at probably any performer specifically and think, oh, like they've turned it way up. It's they make a living by turning it up. But I don't know that that entirely counts because we don't really get a peek at who they actually are, like we do with someone like jasmine star or the business owners that probably our listener Brenna is wanting to know more about so I started brainstorming. And I kind of took a different direction because I think it's easy to see some of the extroverts who are good example of 10. So I think of like Marie Forleo, for example, and we've interviewed Marie, and we've interviewed Jasmine, so you can check those out. But I was also thinking about introverts who I've seen turn the volume up and that's something I've really been thinking about a lot since that episode aired. And so one of them that comes top of mind for me, is Rene Brown. I don't necessarily know she's an introvert or not, but I think that she's someone who has definitely turned the volume up to 10 on a subject that we're talking shame and vulnerability like on a subject that is not a popular conversation. And so I think that she's a great example of someone who's really showing up also I can't help but think about our boss boyfriends. We just had a conversation with them last week and they are so unapologetically showing up as they are an ask themselves.

I agree and along the same lines of of introverts who are showing up who are not the boss boyfriends. I would not call Jason and introvert by any means.
Kathleen Shannon 4:59
Paul Is 100%
Emily Thompson 5:04
but I what came to my mind as well as Liz Gilbert and Gretchen Rubin, which I see both of those women as not like soft women, but like definitely, like more quiet, introverted women who still have quite a loud voice about, you know, their own point of view. I think they're two really great examples as well. Yeah,
Kathleen Shannon 5:23
I love that. And for those of you who don't know, Paul and Jason, I feel like I just mentioned their first names, all shorthand because we're tight like that. It's Paul Jarvis and Jason Zook. And they both write amazing articles and blogs and things like that. Um, is there anyone else you guys can think of? What about you Caitlin? Is there anyone else who is attend that you admire?
Caitlin Brehm 5:45
Um, I think top of mine would be somebody like gala darling, who is over the top glitter and pink and is unapologetic about it. Like she clearly rubs people the wrong way who aren't into that stuff. And you can see it she gets nasty comments sometimes. But she is so unapologetic about being super into her fitness and super into eyeliner. And she shows off these crazy outfits that will make grandmas raise their eyebrows in the streets. And she's made a brand about it about helping other people find this too much ness and bring it out in themselves too. So she's definitely an
Emily Thompson 6:26
example. I love it. So there you go. There's several good examples of people that you can go take a look at who are being unapologetically loud about who they are. And I think there are more of them. I think if you just give yourself a chance to really look around, visit a bookstore, go scrolling through your Instagram feed, perhaps you'll probably end up finding people who are being pretty loud. And
Kathleen Shannon 6:54
I mean, even everyone we've interviewed I think has turned it up a little bit. So
Emily Thompson 7:00
our archives Lisa Congdon being so like, loud with her artsy fartsy ness. And really, I can think of so many people so yeah, definitely go look back through our archives. Pretty much everyone we've interviewed has been because they've been so loud about whatever it is that their point of view is. And lots are extroverts. We have a ton of introverts, men and women, people who are showing up and doing the work, for sure.
