Introverts & Business
So you might have guessed it already, but I am an introvert. I like the comfort of my home, I don’t care to go to clubs, unnecessary noise bothers me, I don’t out my business out there and I like being around people, but then I don’t like being around people…if that makes sense.
They say introverts and business don’t go together because you can't be “quiet” in this industry. You need to be outspoken so that you can get your point across. Well, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, MJ, and MY PRESIDENT Barack Obama are all introverts and I say they are doing pretty well for themselves. But that’s just my opinion.
To be honest, I think other entrepreneurs can learn a little something from introverts. Yes, we like our alone time and we think, boy do we think, but we also observe. We observe our surroundings. We see how people act in different situations, we weigh the pros and the cons and see if that situation is something that we want to be involved in.
It can commonly be mistaken as being bougie, stuck up, or being a b*itch, from my experience, but I like to observe before I react. Many people just jump out there and follow the crowd, but I need to know how you act around certain people or situations before I jump in. I’m big on energy and I don’t need any bad vibes around me.
We are detail-oriented, able to focus for long periods of time and we enjoy empowering other people.
Being an introvert in the business allows you to see how your audience reacts to situations, posts, or certain products or services. It allows you to do your research and make sure you are actually helping out your audience.
So if you are an introvert, don’t be discouraged because you’re not outgoing. We have a lot of great qualities to help us be successful, while others need to hire an introvert to help them get our point of view.
They need to get like us *Kanye shrug*…oh look, another successful introvert lol
