Product Description – From
“The purpose of this book is to present strategies used by successful people – including numerous celebrities – in managing their introversion or shyness while becoming successful in professional endeavors. If you’ve ever felt that your personality was getting in the way of achieving your goals, if you’ve ever felt there was a gap separating you from most other people, this book will open up new possibilities. You don’t have to undergo a personality makeover to be successful in your job search and career. Learn to understand, appreciate, and celebrate your unique strengths.
This book will both enlighten and empower readers with specific strategies to use in everyday personal and professional activities so that they can achieve greater success in their lives. At the same time, it is intended to enable introverts to understand, appreciate, and celebrate their unique strengths.”

The Successful Introvert is a fantastic resource for those of us who are introverted. Shy people can also benefit from this amazingly accurate and insightful book. The Author writes with a very knowledgeable hand and speaks from her own, firsthand knowledge of being an introvert. With wonderful quotes from many successful business people who are introverted and shy, the Author makes her book come alive and gives it even greater authenticity. As an introverted person myself, I was really looking forward to reading this book! I am happy to tell you that I am really pleased with the common sense tips and information that the Author provides. With useful examples and proven methods, I am almost ashamed to admit that I have not figured out many of these things on my own. Much of the book’s content made me feel more comfortable in my own skin; I realize that being introverted isn’t odd or erroneous…it just makes me different from extroverted people. Like two sides of the same coin.
I very highly recommend this book!
