One of my biggest strengths is that I’m an introvert. Especially now I have my own business. With this blog I am celebrating the introvert in me.
I have no problem working alone from home. I love it actually. Sometimes I get the question if I don’t miss people around me. And I can say definitely not. Most of the time I have contact with my clients via email and sometimes I have a Zoom or Skype meeting. I get all my energy from working alone and doing the things I love. I used to be so tired when I worked for a boss. All the energy got sucked out of me because I had to interact with people all day. It also helps that I almost only do things I love to do.
I used to have #awesomeintrovertsfriday on Facebook with all the awesome qualities an introvert has. So here a couple that I think are real pearls.
Introverts are committed to their goals.
When I started my own business it was my goal to make it a success. No matter what, I was going to make it. I don’t want to go back to working for someone. I would be so unhappy when I’m forced to do that. So it’s a good thing I stick to the goals I’m setting.
Introverts are self-sufficient.
Yes, I can be alone for long periods of times without getting bored. I love days of watching tv-shows, reading books, and planning my new trip.
Introverts love meaningful conversations.
I always say that I don’t do small talk. I’m bad at it. I don’t see the point in talking about anything. I like meaningful conversations. Sure I like to know your favorite color or book, but I like it even more when you tell me why. I also love to listen instead of talk. When I’m in a group I’m mostly quiet and listening to the conversation around me.
Introverts are good at studying.
If I look at myself then I definitely am good at that. If I have to learn new things I get things almost always on the first try. For some reason, it sticks. Especially when I think a subject is interesting. It also helps that I can concentrate on one thing without being distracted easily.
So it's pretty great to be an introvert and start your own business. You need a website and if you don't know why, read my post on that. The first step into creating a website is choosing the right website platform. Get my free e-book to know which one is right for you!
