September 13, 2021

Introverts across the world have been sold a lie: that our ability to network depends on having the “gift of gab.” This is nonsense. You don’t have to be outgoing to be successful at networking. You don’t have to become a relentless self-promoter. In fact, you don’t have to act like an extrovert at all.
