Calling All Introverts and Extroverts!! (AKA Everyone!!)
Society is often biased toward the extrovert, validating their outgoing, approachable nature as positively received while the introvert remains more reserved and observant. Although we all experience shape-shift moments of both introversion and extraversion, we are generally one or the other. And with the population evenly split between the two groups, this leaves the 50% – team introvert – brutally underestimated.
This bias even translates to the business world. Popular opinion suggests extroverts are better in their careers. Is this true?
Here are findings from 3 studies on introverts in business. What do you think? Which study shocked you the most?
We should always look for opportunities to shine in our zone of genius no matter how we identify and ways to stretch out of our comfort zone on a regular basis.
The good news for my authors out there, whether you are an introvert, extrovert, or ambivert, you are invited to join us May 4th-6th, 2022 for the 12th annual Nonfiction Writers Conference – an event hosted entirely online since 2010!
This event will give you an opportunity to tap into your ambivert goodness. Live, content-rich sessions are delivered each day along with a Q&A with the speakers – and I’ll be one of them! Teaching you how to command that stage as a speaker!
Attendees can participate in a unique networking and brainstorming event, access bonus downloads, and join a private Facebook group.

If you want to learn how to write, publish, promote, profit and perform with nonfiction, this is the event for you!
Remember – whether you are shy or sociable, no character trait can ever define or limit your abilities as a speaker. I used to be incredibly introverted, but it became my superpower as I observed and learned from others to find my voice. Paralelly, I have also worked with many extroverted folks who needed that guidance to channel their outgoing nature into powerful, structured speeches. You can reach the sky and conquer all your public speaking dreams, no matter what. And I’m always here to help you do just that ❤️
