In today’s episode, I’m sharing tips on building a really big, introvert-friendly business.

6 Big Business Tips

03:22- 03:28  The key is to set up business in a way that works best for you as an introvert.
03:29- 03:32 There are 6 different ways to do that.  

#1 Choose a business model that works for you

03:34- 04:03 First is to choose a business model that works for you. Yes, it’s true that a big reach helps if you want to build a big business it's not just the numbers. But there are also a ton of ways to create that reach. For example, if you love speaking, try to live streaming. No need to leave the house. If making videos scares the hell out of you make podcasts. Like what I'm doing now. 


#2 Outsource and partner strategically

04:50- 05:05 Number two: is outsourcing and partners strategically. I’m not talking about the collaboration here. Now, this tip is having good boundaries and every crucial for introverts. And partly about believing that you’re allowed to spend money on making things easier for yourself. 

05:29- 05:33 Like I said, start by outsourcing and delegating in the areas that you are the weakest.
#3 Take all the downtime you need

07:00- 07:42 Number three: take all the downtime you need. Do you know that energy levels aren't the only difference between extroverts and introverts? Apparently, introverts’ brains also take longer to task-switch. We just tend to work better if we get some buffer time between finishing one task and starting another. Once I realized that I stopped making myself feel guilty for wanting to take time off in the middle of the day. I headed out to see a movie or just read a book in the park on the East coast. Even though my recurring money block insisted that earning money has to be hard.
#4 Batch and automate

08:29- 08:30 Batching and automation. 
08:37- 08:43 As an introvert, I definitely have days where I just want to hide from the world and social media. 

09:29- 10:05 So set up systems that allow you to automate as many tasks as possible. For example, sales follow up sequence or social media posting. And where that’s not possible like writing blog posts or doing your podcasts or writing your book, aim to batch your tasks. Batching, batching, batching. I often make my podcasts months in advance so I don’t have to stress if I don’t feel like getting in front of the microphone for a while or my videos.

#5 Don’t allow yourself to hideaway

10:24- 10:50 Number five: don’t allow yourself to hideaway. Now, online businesses can be awesome for introverts, but they can also be very isolating. And that’s not good for you or your business. Personally, I can stay at home without leaving the house for days at a time. I just just stay at home and don't go out. Unless I make a real effort, but I always feel better after I do. 

11:16- 11:26 Remember to balance the time you spend working on your business with interactions that allow you to make offers and create leverage. Let people know how they can work with you.

#6 Get over your resistance to passive income



11:56- 12:23 Number 6: get over your resistance to passive income. Passive income is a dream model for introverts. I love it so much. Seriously, you do the work once, then sell it over and over again without needing to leave your house. Seriously, who cares about COVID when you're making passive income? And then, when people buy your product, you don’t have to interact with them. 
13:18- 13:19 All I can say is trust me. 
13:21- 13:30  It will make a huge difference to your business if you don’t rely on your personal energy to make money 

Key Takeaways:
  1.  Outsource and partners strategically.
  2.  Take all the downtime you need.
  3.  Batching and automation. 
  4.  Don’t allow yourself to hideaway. 
  5. Get over your resistance to passive income.
