Author of Self-Promotion for Introverts®: The Quiet Guide to Getting Ahead, Nancy Ancowitz coaches you to use your introversion to your advantage—and excel in an extrovert’s world. She shares hard-won wisdom from her own professional journey, spanning her experiences on Wall Street and her entrepreneurial ventures.
Introverts may face more obstacles to promoting themselves—but often have untapped assets. Nancy’s tips and tools help you harness your hidden (and known) strengths, set goals, make a plan, and take action. Her engaging exercises help you explore promotional methods best suited to your personality type. Marketing yourself can actually be revitalizing, especially if you lay the important groundwork of connecting to your strengths and passions.
With Nancy, you’ll learn to:
- Use your introversion as an advantage
- Articulate what sets you apart
- Overcome obstacles to promoting yourself
- Create a “marketing mix” best suited to your style and strengths
- Target employers and clients
- Clarify your vision
- Set goals strategically
Definitions of introvert and extrovert abound, often derived from the widely used Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment, based on the work of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. Some of Nancy’s clients learned they were introverts via an assessment; others are self-described introverts. All get their energy mainly from within, rather than from engaging with lots of people and other external sources.
Though she has a strong following among introverts, Nancy also welcomes clients who are extroverts and those at any point on the introvert-extrovert spectrum. Her research and experience have given her an exceptional understanding of introverts and extroverts alike.
