I’m Cliff Harwin. I’m an author, life coach, and was self-employed for over 35 years. In 2008, I founded The Highly Sensitive Publishing Company and published my first book, Making Sense of Your High Sensitivity. I also author the blog, Highly Sensitive Thoughts and have published digital products.
My company evolved from my love of and passion for personal growth information, as well as my desire to inspire others. As a highly sensitive person, an inherited character trait, I understand how not knowing about your sensitive nature can cause unnecessary pain and unhappiness. The sooner you gain self-knowledge, the faster you’ll be able to leverage your best qualities, while making allowances for your highly sensitive nature.
I write my information from a personal point of view. Through my extensive experience of being a husband, father, and business owner, I offer a unique perspective of life. I do my best to focus on the positive aspects of high sensitivity and to provide advice for dealing with the challenges. I hope you can benefit from the lessons I have learned!
My goal is to start the conversation but not necessarily finish the discussion. I’m hoping that you will connect with me (and others) by commenting on my blog or by interacting with me on social media. It’s very affirming for HSPs to interact with like-minded people, and I expect that there is plenty I can learn from you too!
I reside in Missouri with my wife Linda and our two cats, Prissy and Charlie. Our daughter, Stephanie, is very successful in the Social Media Industry.
