“Introverts live in two worlds: We visit the world of people, but solitude and the inner world will always be our home.” ― Jenn Granneman, The Secret Lives of Introverts: Inside Our Hidden World
What is an introvert and how do they handle being in business? According to the American Management Association
Extroverts: Talk first; think later
Introverts: Think first; talk later
Extroverts: Seek out other people
Introverts: Prefer going solo
Extroverts: Tend to be “babbling brooks;” people often tune them out
Introverts: Don’t speak up too often; people tend to tune in when they do
Extroverts: Draw energy from other people
Introverts: Are energized by time spent alone
How does that figure in business? As a business owner, you need to be out there, telling your story, letting people know about what you do and why they need it. So, what does an introvert do? You can pick the parts of your story that you want the world to know. Find a persona that can become YOU when you are out and about. Let people see what you want them to see. This isn’t a lie, it’s only a chosen part of the whole.
