Gary Vaynerchuk’s fun, educational Internet posts featuring exuberant online presentations turned his family’s wine store into a huge commercial success. But is his extreme extroversion the only viable blueprint for entrepreneurial success? Extreme introvert and business owner Morra Aarons-Mele says no. She teaches introverts how to transform their anxiety into a powerful business asset. She offers strategies that can help an introvert work through a business day successfully. She refers to these techniques under the rubric of “hiding in the bathroom,” and advises that a little hiding can help introverts engage with the world and interact without anxiety. getAbstract recommends Aarons-Mele’s thoughtful approach to introverts hiding in bathrooms everywhere. You can come out now.
In this summary, you will learn
- What common misconceptions discourage introverts from pursuing business success,
- How introverts can succeed in business – even if they must recalibrate their expectations, and
- Why introverts need “alone time” and should avoid “achievement porn.”
