Think you have to be loud and brash to be successful in business? Think again. The strengths and traits of the typical introvert lend themselves well to entrepreneurship as well as "intrapreneurship" and a range of business roles.
In The Introvert Entrepreneur, professional coach Beth Buelow shows listeners how to harness their natural gifts (including curiosity, independence, and a love of research) and counteract their challenges (such as an aversion to networking and self-promotion). She addresses a wide range of topics - from managing fears and expectations and developing a growth mind-set to networking, marketing, leadership skills, and community building - informed by interviews with introverts who have created successful businesses without compromising their core personalities. Filled with fresh insights and actionable advice, this essential guide will support anyone who's striving to make a difference in a loud and chaotic world.

The book had some really good takeaways in it; however, this book focuses more on the extreme introvert, rather than covering the spectrum. She does make brief mention of ambiverts (those who are both introvert and extrovert), though.
Overall, a good book to have in your library if you have any introverted tendencies.
I stumbled across this gem at the perfect time in my career. The advice was authentic, practical and true to the introvert spirit.
Generally It's a good book but some chapters are boring.
I learned the most from the First and the Last chapter which is usually the case with Books or Audios
The narrator lady could have done a better job, gets very blabby at some points
I'm so glad I found this book. Not understanding some of the angst I felt, this book has given me permission to be an introvert in an extrovert world.
I've already seen beneficial changes as I now give myself permission to be an introvert when the feeling comes over me and not feel bad about it.
like it, but a bit more detail about on what steps to take and how
