I recently had a client ask me how they could market themself as an introvert.
As an Introvert myself I’ve faced this concern in the past but now know there really isn’t anything holding you back. So in today’s episode I’m going to talk about how introverts can market themselves, the strengths introverts have, and some tips to utilise them.
If you’re an introvert this episode is for you and if you don’t know where you sit on the introversion/extroversion scale I’ve got you covered. I will share how to lean into your introversion while you market yourself, how to take care of yourself and make work easier, and how I challenged these limiting beliefs myself.
