Business Ideas for Introverts

As an entrepreneur I have tried MANY ideas, some did not work so well. Also, as an introvert and occasional extrovert, I have always tried to “do sales” and I just couldn’t. When I changed my perspective and found products that would give me the opportunity to “serve others”, that was a Game Changer.  Many of the ideas below are service oriented, and do not require convincing a person of their need for a product that could change their lives.  Each time that I have been able to be of service to a person or group of people, my job is no longer a “job”. It is truly an adventure.  That is why I love being an entrepreneur.  I have tried the 9-5 and Big Corporate jobs, and they did not work, as the Entrepreneurial Spirit does not get fed there. If you have been bitten with that Spirit you know what I am talking about. If you want to get bit stick around, join us on the journey, share your journey with us and you’ll be well on your way. Here are some GREAT ideas:

Introverts are powerful in their own right. They are productive thinkers with strong opinions who can achieve great lengths. Despite what entrepreneur.comthe media says — often stereotyping them as “shy” or “socially awkward” — introverts can make great business leaders and entrepreneurs. In fact, many successful business leaders are introverts, including Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Warren Buffett.

“They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams.”
