EPISODE 26 | How To Run & Grow Your Health Business As An Introvert
Leading up to recording this episode I did a poll in my online community to see how many of the alternative health business owners in there identified as an introvert. I wasn’t super surprised to see that it was well over 70%. I don’t know if it’s just that I attract introverts because I am one as well and speak openly about it (it’s true, I just play an extrovert on the internet!) or if people drawn to alternative health and being of service to others are often introverted.
I invited Kathleen LeGrys to join me for today’s’ show to discuss tips and tricks on how to run and grow your business as an introvert. Kathleen is one of my business besties so this wasn’t the first time she and I have spoken about how we set our life and businesses up to support ourselves and to honour what we need. We talk about how running an online business can actually be a perfect fit for someone that identifies as an introvert. Kathleen and I share what being an introvert means to us and give you practical tools that you can start to apply in your life and business immediately if you identify as an introvert and are feeling pressure to go against your natural rhythms.
We also get real about how to know when it’s true introversion vs. feeling shy or feeling fear about putting yourself out there. Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, we all have fear and worry about being judged or embarrassing ourselves, that’s part of the journey and we can’t use introversion as something to hide behind and keep us from stepping into our full potential.
