Publisher's Summary

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.

Good Info.

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.

Could have been narrated better

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 an introvert....who knew!?

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.

A new way to think about yourself.

This is a very insightful work that had helped me reframe some of thoughts that have kept me from reaching my full potential.

Exactly what I needed

As an introvert going in entrepreneurship I figured I would give this book a try. I am grateful I did. There are so many tools and tricks to use to get the most out of my future business and I would listen while getting ready for my current job in the morning, giving me motivation to leave this job next year. I also purchased the Kindle version as I knew that this would be a resource for me to read again and again. I appreciate that the book is written by an Introvert since some of them are not. I also have a Kindle book on Introvert leadership that i will read to complement this book.
