The debut episode of People Behind the Business is inspired by a Facebook Live masterclass I had the pleasure of leading on how introverts can pitch businesses…the introvert friendly way.
In fact, it also includes a brief audio clip of the original Facebook Live, in order to kick off the discussion. Special thanks to Kasey Pierce of 819 Social for inviting me to speak in her Facebook Group, Learn Social Media Marketing for Introverted Entrepreneurs.
Once upon of time, I was a shy introvert who would break out into a pool of sweat whenever I did public speaking.
So even though I’ve found coping tactics that actually work, I had to come to terms with my shy introversion for the second time when I started my own business. And when I finally figured out what works best for me, I found an introvert friendly way to connect with other entrepreneurs, and also potential clients.
The debut episode is a reflection on how my confidence has evolved over time. It is also one of the rare opportunities that I get to share how I attracted everything from my first blog followers, to my first clients.

I think introverts are very good in presentations because they have keen attention to detail. This is mostly the reason why they get drained when they are around too much people because with so many talking at the same time, it maybe hard for the introvert to focus. They don't dig anything shallow, not because they think they are smarter but because they will want to solve everything inside their heads and needed closure all the time, it's like an involuntary action for them, you see they are not the want who wanted this intentionally.

As an introvert myself, I would have to agree with that. But I'd that it's also about pressure. Throughout most of my schooling, extroverted behaviour would be encouraged, and introverted behaviour would be discouraged. Things like participation marks counted for something, right up until my final year of university. In fact, I didn't experience a workplace that was relaxed about introverted behaviour until around...my second last year of university, where all my co-workers were introverts anyways.
