5 lessons from Donald Trump boycotts for introverts to know

Trump’s outspoken stance about illegal Mexicans flamed protests to boycott several of Trump’s properties. And remember, Macy’s and NBC cut their ties with him.

His statements and actions call for boycotts, and he also seems to care little about the calls for boycotting any of his companies.

Are you an introvert still not sure about your voice being heard, or do you think it’s only being more extroverted that can help?

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.

Did I really say that?

We met on LinkedIn and if you are on LinkedIn you know how these things happen.

Meet Donna Price, Business Coach, Innovator, and Facilitator, who was intrigued by my book Communication Toolkit for Introverts and invited me to be a guest on her BlogTalkRadio channel.

It was interesting learning her take on introversion too.

As much as I rehearse a presentation, I am always ready to mix up something I hadn’t planned to say. You can fast forward to any of these particular and approximate minute designations (minutes in) for key points in the conversation.
