You're an Introverted Teacher
You’re great at teaching and educating others.
While you’re definitely an introvert and a homebody, that doesn’t mean you can’t grow your business. All while wearing comfy sweatpants and drinking your favorite mug of tea!
Your superpower is that you are really great at teaching others how to solve a specific problem or educating them on a particular topic.
Your big challenge? Putting yourself out there and being visible feels hard, and it makes marketing feel really difficult. But once people get to know you, they realize how special you are.
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. Teach a small workshop or create an online course. Whether you do a small online or in-person workshop, it’s totally up to you. Limit to just a few people so you don’t feel overwhelmed. Or better yet, shoot a few videos or create a mini-challenge or online course to help spread the word about your business. Just make sure to pick a topic that your ideal audience wants help with. And then pitch your offer at the end or give people a way to learn more about it.
Mindset tip: As an introvert, it can be 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.
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. Educate your audience via your blog. Know how to help people solve a specific problem or want to share a few tips on a particular topic? Share them on your blog or do a guest blog post where you outline the steps they should take. Make sure to optimize your blog post with keywords so people can find you online.
Mindset tip: You may feel uneasy sharing your story or personal details about your life online. Just know that you have control over how much you share about your personal life. So it’s up to you how much information you divulge. You may also run into a bit of imposter syndrome if you don’t feel like you’re an expert yet. But know that your audience is most likely two steps behind you, so they’ll be grateful that you’re sharing your knowledge.
