If you’ve ever dreamt of turning your passion into a career, but feel held back by your perceived limitations, such as introversion, lack of confidence or plain old fear - this book was created for you.
The Creative Introvert: How to Build a Life You Love On Your Terms will show you how to find YOUR sweet-spot. Learn how to identify and embrace your strengths, let go of trying to fit into someone else's box and create a successful business and life.
This book is designed to take you through a 6-step process, each part focussing on a different area of the creative introvert journey. You can dip in and out of parts that appeal to you, OR follow the journey from start to... well, there is no 'finish' on this journey, but the book has an end!
Prepare: Learn what you need to be at your best
Learn how self-knowledge, mindset and positive psychology are foundational to creative career success. Without this foundation, taking action and applying the strategy will likely fall flat.
Plan: Get the clarity to move forward with confidence
You’ll gain clarity on what kind of life you’re carving out for yourself, and how to remove the overwhelm from that grand concept, breaking down any size of dream into practical, actionable steps.
Produce: How To Actually Get Things Done
If you've ever struggled with the procrastination gremlin, you'll be relieved to know that the battle ends here. You'll learn strategies and tools you can use in any situation to finally get it DONE.
Promote: Time To Get Your Art Out!
You'll learn how to market your work without feeling sleazy or pushy, you’ll learn how to identify, attract and sell to your dream clients or customers and get the exposure you so deserve.
Process: Taking Stock and Correcting Course
Throughout this book you'll find an emphasis on experimentation. This section is where this scientific approach comes into its own. You'll learn how to run your own experiments that will show you exactly what you're doing that is working, and what you need to tweak.
People: Introverts Need Them Too
Just because we're introverts doesn't mean we can do this all alone. People are on every corner of your creative journey, and learning how to manage these relationships effectively is going to be the make or break difference in your success.
