I’m a big introvert that’s why I love blogging as I am much better at expressing myself behind the keyboard. But I’m not a big wall flower, I have my moments where I can be the life of the party but I have to retreat to my home for days after to get more energy again. I’m usually misunderstood as moody or an overthinker but that’s okay. Most people will understand. There is an awesome TED talk on The Power of Introverts in the workplace where we are usually pushed to change into extroverts if we have any plans for professional growth.

Words by Susan Cain from her book, QUIET: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking
Susan Cain is the author of QUIET: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking and the co-founder of Quiet Revolution, a startup that aims to help businesses manage their introverted employees.
On a recent wintry day, the best-selling author is curled up on a couch in the kind of cozy living room where families gather before Thanksgiving dinner. Half of her 10-person team is present, along with a marketing and strategy expert who has flown in from Arizona. They are discussing ways to get "more Susan Cain" onto the home page of , her startup dedicated to releasing the power of introverts. Cain, who practically disappears inside her long green sweater and tall back boots, is more concerned with how to make the consulting business not all about her.
