You're an Ambivert Storyteller
You’re great at telling powerful stories and connecting with others.
As an ambivert, you straddle the line between introvert and extrovert. Some days, you’re fine being social and spending time with others, other days, you just want to be alone at home. That’s great news – you’re adaptable, and so is your business! So it’s really up to you which marketing strategies you pick.
Your superpower is that you are really great at telling powerful stories – whether they’re about you or the clients you serve.
Your big challenge? Sometimes, putting yourself out there and being visible feels hard, and it makes marketing feel difficult. But once you get started, it becomes easier and you gain momentum.
As for your marketing, it’s not about trying every single strategy (thank goodness!), it’s about finding what feels most aligned to your personality and strengths, and doing more of that.

to help you grow your business:
1. Figure out a way to share your story more. Whether that’s by guest blogging or being a guest on a podcast, you want to find ways to talk about your business and your client’s success stories. Talking to others comes naturally to you, and you feel comfortable doing it, so use that to your advantage. You can even start your own podcast once you have a bit more experience.
Mindset tip: At first, you may feel a bit reluctant to tell your story because you want want to stay more private or you don’t feel like it’s that unique. But the more you do it, the more you’ll realize that sharing your story serves others by inspiring them and showing them what is possible for them. It also helps you build “know, like and trust” factor quickly.
2. Reach out to people individually. You’re great at connecting one-on-one. So reach out to people you can help and offer them a free strategy or discovery call, where you help them solve a problem and share some insights. Then ask them if they want to hear more about your offer.
Mindset tip: It can be hard to reach out at first, because you may fear rejection or feel like you’ll be judged. But know that when you reach out to a potential client, you’re doing them a favor because you’re helping them solve an issue they’re having. Your bravery to reach out will help get the ball rolling and they’ll be grateful for your help.
3. Develop partnerships. Because you’re a natural storyteller, you’re also probably pretty great at talking to others. So think about ways to work with other business owners to get in front of a bigger audience. Maybe pitch them a topic you can teach their following. It’s a win/win – they get a speaker, you get more exposure. Make sure people have a way of contacting you at the end of your presentation. You could also think of getting some referral partners – other business owners serving a similar audience who can refer people to you.
Mindset tip: As an ambivert, it can sometimes feel scary to put yourself out there. To make it easier, start small and work your way up to larger audiences. And pick a topic you really know well so that you feel confident. And try to take the focus off of you–the more you make it your mission to serve others and teach them something you know, the less you’ll be worried about the way you come across.
