Betty In The Sky - flight attendant, podcaster and author

Betty Thesky is first a flight attendant, but in her spare time, she’s a writer and podcaster with a phenomenally successful show! I came across Betty because she’s mentioned in Guy Kawasaki’s book “Enchanted”. Her show, and her many books, draw on her experiences as a flight attendant. Betty is funny, lighthearted, energetic and she lives the ideal writers life! (And she sounds like she has a huge amount of fun doing it! )

The essential element that’s missing

It’s not only Sumi-e art that can be practiced mindfully. Every part of your day could have some element of contemplation, emotion or thoughtfulness about it.
