As I was binge watching, I came across this documentary about the life of a back-up singer. The 20 feet from stardom shows how close they are to stardom but choose to share their gifts with many versus themselves. I felt this was a great program to share with you about being a success as an Introvert business owner.
The blessing of being an introvert is that we know when it’s time to be alone. We relish being alone and can do it very well. I know a lot of introverts who create special spaces in their home for the much-needed quiet time.
Leverage your purpose in making business decisions. When you are faced with a ‘shiny object’ or ‘too good to pass up offer’ going forward, ask yourself if that opportunity adds value to or helps you achieve your purpose. If yes, then go for it confidently. If not, then it would be best to leave it alone for this year.
Persuasion is a highly researched field, and introverts can learn the ability to influence others both in and outside of business. Invest some time in practicing this valuable skill. You’ll be glad you did!
Are you lacking enough time to enjoy your life? It’s time to set priorities and reduce distractions.
Decide what is most important to you. Then determine how you’re using your time inefficiently. Ask yourself the important questions that will allow you to make meaningful changes. Free up your time for your priorities. You’ll be glad you did!
If you experience the sound of crickets during your online event, you may have a room full of Introverts. This is especially true when the only opportunity to share comes when the facilitator asks, “Who Would Like to Share?” and waits for attendees to shout out. If the only way to share is to shout out and hope to be first, then the Introvert may keep silent and wait for the next opportunity—which may never come.
Marketing strategies are designed to cater to Extroverts. That’s right! The focus is always on the numbers and collecting massive names, spending time online daily sharing and replying. That’s cool for Extroverts, but we Introverts can’t succeed at doing Extrovert marketing because that’s not how we are built.
