I love to read, always have.
When you have a good book in your hands and your totally engrossed in the story,
it takes you places you may never go in real life.
Reading is perfect for an introvert.
You can experience adventures of all kinds without leaving the comfort of your own home.
Or your pajamas.
Or having to talk to people.
I should have started this post with this:
“Hi, I’m Kim, and I’m an introvert”
Can I get a high-five from all my introvert peeps out there?
Probably not. That’s way too much loud cheering and icky touching.
It’s ok, I know you’re out there.
Since taking the plunge into Entrepreneurship, my inner introvert is constantly
challenged to just give it up already. Representing my business, being “The Face”
of TSH means I must put myself “Out There”, where ever the heck “Out There” is.
But it seems I must find out.
So, now I call myself a “Recovering Introvert”. Willing to face the challenges put
before me, I brave the unknown world of purposeful social interactions.
When my Indie Business Book club voted to read “The Fortune Cookie Principle”
by Bernadette Jiwa, a book on how to tell your brand story and why your business
needs one, I thought it was a great idea. I’ve heard fantastic things about this book.
Learning to tell a brand story does not sound like a scary thing. When a business is
founded on beliefs and desires, it becomes a highly personal endeavor.
That is the beauty of telling the brand story. You get to hear the magic and inspiration
behind the finished products. When done correctly the consumer feels a closer connection
to the business. But that’s also the scary part, because all that came from
a deeply personal place.
To quote my friend and author, Lauree Ostrofsky at Simply Leap
“I’m scared and I’m doing it anyway”
Here I go, taking brave leaps towards being “Out There”

Love this. I am enjoying the book. So happy you are taking the leap.
I read a book a long time ago called “Feel the fear and do it anyway” I don’t remember who wrote it, and I don’t remember anything about the book, but I loved the title. I’m still an introvert, but now I’m an introvert who feels the fear and does it anyway. :)
I, too, am a recovering introvert. It takes guts to put yourself out there, but it’s so worth it.
