I was super excited to interview the lovely Esmé Weijun Wang this week for the podcast!
Esmé and I covered so much ground in this episode, from her mission of radical sincerity to the value of small talk, from finding your authentic voice online to telling your story, from building resilience and finding community.
If you’ve ever struggled with how to tell your own creative story amidst everyone else online, this episode is for you!
Thank you so much, Esmé, it was such a treat having you on the show!
PS. At the beginning of this episode, I also introduce something I’m super excited about: the Raise your Hand Say Yes book club. We’re starting with The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks. Get your copy now and give it a read – the episode where we discuss it will air on March 4!
PPS. If you like what you hear or are a fan of the podcast, please consider subscribing and submitting a review in iTunes. Thank you!

There were some beautiful and honest moments in this episode. Thank you. I struggle with generalized anxiety and though I’m competent and accomplished in my life, this invisible side of me consumes energy daily. Thankfully my creative work and time in nature are some of the best ‘treatments’ for my anxiety.
I’m so glad you got so much from the show, Nicole. xxoo
