Shhh …. How the Quiet Revolution is Growing

I learned I was more introverted when I was about 40 years old. I completed the MBTI during a management retreat, and it rated me as an INTJ. My Italian family didn’t believe me although no one likely knew what introverted meant. Family and friends assumed I was a shy but often brassy Italian girl from Long Island.

“Oh dear, this means my sales career is over,” was my first thought.

Seriously, I was close to the top of my game being just promoted to sales manager. I had no idea this was a career path not to be traveled by introverts let alone to be successful in it. Guess those executive recruiters didn’t know much about this at that time?

Discovering my quieter nature explained so much to me. I had a flashback to my Italian family traditions. “That’s it. They were always my encouragers to speak up.” That would likely make for another interesting post about growing up as an Italian, who’s more of an introvert.

Maybe knowing there is still so much confusion about what introversion means and doesn’t mean is why I accepted the recent invitation to be a Quiet Ambassador for Susan Cain’s Quiet Revolution[Continue Reading…]

How Are You Allowing Blogging to Expand Your Abundance?

more-abundanceDon’t we want our blogging to attract followers, fans, commenters and customers? Attracting anyone like this, and more types of results are welcome in plentiful numbers.

Plentiful is the operative word. Plentiful being abundant and life it could be – joy, peace, health, security, wealth or you name what is you want more.

Best actions and mindset for Abundance always grab my attention. When Denis Roberts, CEO of Business Coaching for Premium Coaches told me about his new, Group Coaching With Friends For Abundance, my curiosity kicked in. I’ve known Denis through LinkedIn for several years now. Once we talked, I felt I must interview him for you to learn about this.

Many of you know me from a popular LinkedIn group, Bloggers Helping Bloggers. When I heard the description of this new group coaching, it sounded close to what we expect from those collaborative groups. Denis has what he calls is a slight shift.

I wondered about coaches who might want to know what Denis does differently as a coach, and how he’s filling the gap of traditional coach training.

Is Your Niche Blogging Attracting and Growing Your Online Reach as Much as You Want?

Thank you for making the last month more of an oasis for this introvert’s blogging efforts.

Often it can be either a desert or an oasis with online social media visibility. We can blog consistently, offer valuable and unique content, and can still think or feel, “Is this reaching more people?” Or even, “Where am I going with this blogging?”

Or is that just me? If it is, then you are way ahead of me.

Two unexpected and different kinds of recognition each arrived with their gifts. I don’t know quite what to make of it.

Most bloggers want to grow their reach.

But maybe you don’t care about recognition. It’s might be hard to believe an introvert would thrive in the limelight of it. But maybe in my situation it’s my award winning sales background that causes me to do a happy dance when winning something comes my way.
