In this first episode I really wanted to get under the skin of what introversion is. Joanna Rawbone is a trainer, coach, consultant, TEDx speaker and host of the Flourishing Introvert Talks podcast. Who better to ask?
What is introversion?
We discussed what makes introverts different. Jo introduced me to ways of classifying introverts. Check out Jo’s quiz on her website to find which type of introvert you are! We talked about our skills and how we recharge our batteries.
Jo and I had a great conversation about how introverts can successfully market ourselves as business owners, and what introvert skills are useful when you are doing your own marketing. Self knowledge, authenticity and understanding your target audience are key.
