I’m An Introvert! So What?
A few weeks ago Lisa and I decided to videotape some of our “brainstorming” conversations and to share them with you from time to time.
We hope you get some kind of helpful new thought as a result of these talks and you are always welcome to jump into the conversation through the blog comments. (Or, come up and visit us and we’ll put you in front of the camera!)
This week, we talked about how a person’s preference for introversion or extraversion affects his/her career.
Let us know what you want us to talk about next!
