There is a lot of hype around being an entrepreneur. These days everyone wants to be one. Build an empire. Conquer the world.
I’m an accidental entrepreneur. Initially, I didn’t quit my job because I wanted to work from a laptop with my feet soaked in warm sand. I hate sitting in the sand, it gets in too many places + electronic devices. I did it because (I don’t think you know this about me), but I’m a hermit. I couldn’t deal with the social anxiety of leaving my house everyday + dressing up + driving to work. It’s too people-y outside.
Being my own CEO + setting up my business online has helped me feed that neurosis.
Don’t be fooled by the bubbly personality. Inside this pint size cheerleader, there is an introvert stirring the wheel, maneuvering my way out of small talk.
So how does an introvert run a profitable business? I’ll give you a few pointers:
- Like Weight Watchers, I have a points system.
- I don’t always connect, but when I do, it’s with one person at a time.
- I have created a tier of offerings that have different levels of interaction.
- I fired Twitter + Snapchat + Google+.
- Raise your introvert white flag high!
- Remember that you are the boss of you and your business.
That’s what I’ve got for you today.
Any tips you can add to the mix? All my introverts would love you for it. So please add them in the comments, alright. Don’t be shy (wink wink).
