“A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.” – John Assaraf
Do you identify as an introvert and feel like you’re struggling to make it in entrepreneurship in an extroverted world?
Forever ago, being an introvert was tough. Because a lot of times, it’s the extrovert that everybody sees. With social media, it seems like we’re always living in this world where extroverted people have it easier, and we don’t think that’s true anymore. As a matter of fact, the introvert has never had it better than right now!
In this episode of The Elevated Life, we’re sharing “How Introverts Can ‘Make it in Business’ in an Extroverted World” so you can step out of your shell and shine in business situations. If being an introvert is limiting you from following your dreams, then don’t miss this episode!

How Introverts Can “Make it in Business” in an Extroverted World
Hire Out the Extroverted Tasks
You can either hire the stuff out that you don’t enjoy doing or figure out someone else’s system to use. So if you don’t like posting on social media because you can’t come up with captions, get someone’s system on how they do it. When you sit down, you have a game plan about how successful people can do it. So you either need to go higher out the skill, or you need to get a game plan or blueprint on what you need to do to be able to do it very well.
Practice Being Extroverted
Most of the conversations you’ll have in everyday life are practice conversations that you could have thought of beforehand. People will ask you the same stuff. What do you do? Where do you live? Maybe where did you go to school? It’s going to be some of the same questions. Get that into your mind about how you would answer them. What would be a good response? Then, go try it out.
Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone with The Rejection Challenge
Most people fear rejection so much that it limits them from doing anything in social situations. It’s often the fear that stops people from being able to just go and do anything. So for 21 days, go try and be rejected on purpose. And once you become immune to that, the number of things you can do, you’re free because people can’t hurt you anymore.
Don’t Limit Yourself to the Label of Being Introverted
Check yourself and notice if being introverted is just another label you’ve given yourself out of fear. To some degree, we’re all introverted and extroverted. Are you throwing this label on yourself to hold you back from being successful or putting yourself out there?
