142 | Embracing Intensity with Aurora Remember

This Week’s Guest:

Aurora Remember is on a mission to help people embrace their intensity and use their fire without getting burned.  With a background as a school psychologist, Aurora just launched a new podcast called, Embracing Intensity.

In this conversation, you will hear Aurora explain the traits and tendencies of a highly excitable person.  While she shares some of her personal traits, we also talk about Aurora’s most popular blog post, 25 Things Only a Highly Excitable Person Would Understand.  

In the hot-seat portion of the discussion, we talk about Aurora’s struggles with social media.  She struggles with being consistent and staying focused in this area.  We talk about some strategies she can implement to help herself in this area.  At the end of the episode, Aurora calls back to follow-up after her hot seat session.  Aurora tried using Fiverr for delegating some social content.  She also talks about using Buffer to help her streamline social posting.
