Tired of dragging yourself out the door to networking meetings?

As I sat down to write this, my mind drew a complete blank.  I wasn’t sure if I wanted to share this or not.

You know how as an introvert, you sometimes drag yourself out the door to networking meetings even when you don’t want to?

And you know that feeling of wanting to just back out of something (ie, networking meetings/events you planned on going to), but you committed so your word is more important than how you feel?  I confess.  That’s how I’ve been feeling about my upcoming 3-day live event that some of you have been waiting for.

As an introvert who loves teaching, and who has grown a multi-6 figure business in around 2 years primarily thru speaking, the truth is that getting myself out the door to do a talk live in front of people is another story.  I enjoy it when I’m speaking live to people, but the idea of getting myself out the door is not always my favorite thing.  Doing talks takes a lot of energy out of me even while I am enjoying it.  I do it only because I really enjoy it and it gives me a high.

But doing things from home or wherever I’m traveling to, ie: Australia, Cambodia, Taiwan, etc. is my preference.  Those are some of the places I’ve been in the last year while I’ve helped my holistic practitioners experience business makeovers, and how our company has grown into a multi-6 figure business in around two years through speaking in an introverted way.

For example, we’ve done it by cutting edge phone technology that allows us to pair people up at times…and by webinars (including automated ones).  We’ve done it through ways of getting found that don’t require me to be “out there” frequently.

I rarely get out the door to speak live in front of people, unless it’s for a national conference like the National Association for Nutrition Professionals (NANP) Conference next month, or when it is a great opportunity to be in front of people I feel I could really help (ie, was just asked to speak at a naturopathic conference that’s a national one).

Last year, people flew in from different parts of the US and Canada to be a part of the first event of its kind, the Introvert Power & Impact 3-day live event. It was magical.  Some told me they gave themselves a raise and got it within weeks after the event….and their patients were appreciative of the new way they were committing to and receiving care.

Someone else had their biggest week of income within a month after.  These few stories were just the tip of the iceberg.  My husband helped me out at the event, and he told me how he was smiling inside when the participants made comments about how well run of an event it w
