“Whatever pain you can’t get rid of, make it your creative offering.”

In today’s episode, Vishen interviews Susan Cain, author of the best-selling phenomenon ‘Quiet The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking’. She’ll explain the premise of her new book ‘Bittersweet’ and how sorrow and longing can actually make us whole.  If you seek out beauty in your everyday life; if you find comfort or inspiration on a rainy day; if you react intensely to music, art, and nature; then Susan’s message will resonate, and help you reframe sorrow in a beautiful, new way. 

Susan Cain is recognized as one of LinkedIn’s top ten influencers and was named one of the world’s top 50 leadership experts by Inc. magazine. Her books have been translated into 40 different languages, spent eight uninterrupted years on The New York Times Bestseller list, and her TED talk has been viewed more than 40 million times. Her new book, ‘Bittersweet: How Sorry and Longing Make Us Whole’  is a must-read for anyone who’s lived, loved or lost.
