    Book details


Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos are often grouped together as some of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time, but they also have something else in common – they are all introverts. In The Introvert Entrepreneur professional coach Beth Buelow shows us how introverts can utilise their natural gifts (such as listening) and overcome their weaknesses (such as an aversion to networking) when it comes to starting a business, taking on the mistaken but prevailing assumption that entrepreneurial success belongs to the extroverts.

What many people, including introverts themselves may not know, is that the strengths and traits of the typical introvert – curiosity, desire for depth over breadth, comfort with going solo, thoroughness and thoughtfulness and love of research – lend themselves well to entrepreneurship. This book shares the stories and lessons from introverts who have built successful businesses and created a way of life that honours their natural energy. Topics covered include fears, mind-set, failure and self-management, values, networking, marketing, sales, creating community, partnership and expansion.

An introvert trying to be a fake extrovert is just that: a fake extrovert. The Introvert Entrepreneur takes a strengths-based approach to being a successful entrepreneur, while also helping you deal with the particular roadblocks you may encounter when building a business.

"As a longtime introvert entrepreneur, I was thrilled to discover a toolkit of resources for others like me. This book shows how you can go your own way while still being true to yourself. You can be successful in business without shouting--and you don't have to attend those boring 'networking' events either."--Chris Guillebeau, New York Times bestselling author of "The $100 Startup" and "The Happiness of Pursuit""I have always loved listening to author Beth Buelow's engaging podcasts on introverted entrepreneurship.

Having followed Beth's work and then reading her latest book, The Introvert Entrepreneur, I feel like I have insight that I hadn't had before on how introverts do business. Upon finishing the book, I realized that many of my way of engaging with introverts was always based on my preferences rather than considering theirs.

  • By Guest on 29 June 2017

    This has been one of the most insightful and helpful books I have read! I'm in the soft launch phase of my business and I was struggling to relate the standard business advice out there to me and my needs. A friend then suggested this book, and the way in which Beth has framed and approached angles of business has really resonated with me, and since I have begun working more in line with my values and introverted nature I have seen and made great forward progress with my business in the short space of a month! Highly recommended.

    I first heard about Beth through her podcast, The Introvert Entrepreneur, which is a great resource for new and established business owners. This book provides a comprehensive overview of some of the business-related topics that are most important to introverted business owners. She covers common questions and challenges introverts often face in business (such as networking), providing plenty of useful solutions and suggestions that enable introverts to move forward with their business while respecting their own needs and energy levels.One of the most encouraging aspects of this book is its focus on strengths. Beth spends some time at the beginning of this book highlighting all the ways introversion is helpful for entrepreneurship and how we can use traits that are considered more common in introverts to our advantage in the business world. Rather than dwelling on the issues introverts might face, she instead encourages introverted business-owners to return to their core values, the “why” behind what they’re doing, and to think outside the box when it comes to creating a sustainable business.As well as providing useful practical guidance, this book is a positive, inspiring read that debunks some common entrepreneurship myths and shows us how we can shift our mindset, harness introvert power, and forge our own entrepreneurial path.

  • By Mark Speed on 28 March 2016

    The author is an extremely well-qualified and experienced coach, and has walked the journey of being an introverted entrepreneur.I think this is a very practical self-development book if you're new to the fact that you're an introvert. I bought it in the hope that it would help me push outwards in the marketing of my writing. I think the book was somewhat overpriced, and that i could have got the information and advice more succinctly and for free elsewhere - such as the author's website. It was a bit short on what I'd call actionable steps, but I can see that there's a lot of value to people who don't realise they're introverts and are trying to come to terms with fitting their personality type into a business venture and making it work.

    Bought as a gift so don't know how it was.

  • By Rob the Greek on 28 February 2016

    Loved it. Practical steps and strategies for us introverts running our businesses or holding leadership roles. Some real gems.

  • By 58geordie on 13 November 2016

    A very interesting book that gives clear, practical advice to entrepreneurs who may struggle with some of the more outgoing aspects of business. Tells how to embrace the positive sides of introversion and use them to your advantage. Definitely recommend.[...]
