 Ep 62: Virtual Expat: Ronald, Creativity Roots Podcast | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:46:57

Have you ever been inspired by someone online, contacted them, met them in person and was even more impressed? Yup, that's the story of how Ronald and I met and it happened in just a few hours. I was listening to his Creativity Roots Podcast and loving it. The rest of the story is in the intro, so I don't want to spoil that part. What I will say is that we met at just the right time. I struggle greatly with accepting my creativity and he wears his like a favorite tshirt. He also has a heavy online presence, for both personal and professional reasons. And with that presence came opportunity, responsibility and love (oh wait until you hear his jokes!) Thank you Ronald for reminding me how freeing it can be to embrace who we are without judgement both on and offline.    -------------------------------------------------------------------- Steph's projects:   Music courtesy of Damon Castillo:   Ronald's Creativity Roots Podcast Website:    54:00 Macklemore kid video:

 Ep 61: Virtual Expat: Jo, Life in Breaths | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 02:04:27

Virtual Expat Podcast's new and improved season 2 begins with Jo, a British expat living in Shanghai, China. Her wisdom, insight, humour and down to earth advice to other expats about how their online and geographical selves can, should, may and might influence each other is the best way I can think to start this new online focused season. Thank you Jo and thank you to our listeners, who have been patient while this revamp was under production. -Steph -------------------------------------------------------------------- Steph's projects:   Music courtesy of Damon Castillo:   Jos's website: Life in Breaths,   7:42 Migratory Patterns Podcast,   43:44 The Science of Well-Being, and The Science of Happiness,   1:00:07 Eva Chan Instragram:   1:45:29 Conversations with People Who Hate Me   1:56:11 Elizabeth Gilbert Big Magic Book, chapter 5 is amazing! and TEDTalk on creativity
