We’re officially “in it.”

The season where the calendar is overflowing with events, conferences, seminars, parties and all kinds of get togethers that naturally involve you meeting people.

Lots of people. And often, all at once.

If even thinking about being with lots of people makes you want to stay home and take a nap, you’re not alone.

That’s because as much as one third to a half of the population considers themselves introverts.

If you’ve ever questioned the best way to balance your need for quiet with the never-ending opportunities to “put yourself out there” — today’s MarieTV episode is for you.

You’ll learn five super helpful strategies to “putting yourself out there” in a way that works perfectly with your quiet nature.

You’ll also learn how I surprised today’s guest, Susan Cain, author of the best-seller Quiet, with a little known fact about yours truly.

In the comments below, I’d love to hear from you.

If you consider yourself an introvert, which of the five strategies resonated most for you and why? If you’ve got more to add to the list, I’d love to hear that too.

And even if you don’t, there’s a good chance someone in your life – a loved one or colleague – is introverted. How can you use these insights to relate to someone you love in a more powerful and compassionate way?

As always, thank you so much for sharing so kindly and generously. You’re amazing.

P.S. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked for advice on networking for introverts. Even if you don’t identify with being introverted, I’ll bet someone you know and love, does. If that’s the case — be sure to share this post and help them out!

P.P.S. Kuma is doing SO much better this week. He wanted me to tell you thanks again for all your prayers and good wishes — they really helped him.

With love,
