Annie F. Downs is a best-selling author, speaker & podcaster. She is also hilarious! Annie has written 10 books & has that girl-next-door persona so within moments you feel like you’ve been friends forever. In this episode we discover 3 steps that Annie takes (and so can you!) when she starts working on a new idea & doesn’t know where to begin. Annie also talks through the right way to ask for help & why you should never use the phrase “Can I pick you brain?”.

We also discuss moving to a new city, map freedom, developing a healthy relationship with time & why you shouldn’t wait for anyone to inspire you.
