Introverts in Business

I found this picture in a Facebook group that I belong to and I need to write about it because I am introvert and I’m trying to insert myself into the world of network marketing.

I am an introvert. That’s me. Don’t judge, it’s how I roll. I’ve been this way my entire life only when I was younger, I couldn’t grasp the concept. Life experiences and my career as a registered nurse have given me a true insight to who I am and what I want and inspire me to look within myself to process life.

I can extrovert myself to a certain extent each day and then I need to shut it down. I enjoy socializing outside of my house but at the end of it, I enjoy going home too. I prefer text and email communication. I have a select few people I choose to talk to on the telephone with. Everyone else, I’ll only call if I have something specific to say. I feel trapped when someone tries to keep me on the telephone or on a social outing when I’ve stated it’s time for me to retreat. Don’t be offended. It has nothing to do with you.

Realize what works for you maybe won’t work for me. Know that I observe people’s behaviors, facial expressions, body language and tone of voice when they are in my presence. I assess whether they are being genuine or fake to me. If your intentions towards me are not genuine, I will pick up on that. I can’t tolerate fake. Be careful how you ask me what I’m doing or what’s going on in my head because if your behavior, tone of voice, facial expressions or body language rub me the wrong way, I’m going to find this interaction intrusive and I will pull away.

So here I am trying to establish a Young Living Essential Oils Business for myself simply because I love their products. These products have benefited me and I want to educate and share. I’m having a difficult time though. It’s almost as if we can’t succeed in any network marketing business unless we flood social media with our posts. Pictures and videos. I refuse to put myself in a video. I can’t. That’s way too extroverted for me. I’m ok on Instagram but I don’t want to put these types of posts on Facebook. I feel like I’m bombarding people.

I joined a Facebook group for my business and one of the challenges today was to put post something about being an introvert in my Facebook status. I almost had an anxiety attack. I can’t even do that because I don’t want to share that about myself on Facebook. Those who know me well already know that about me.

I don’t want to come across as a salesman on social media. I’m not a salesman. I’m a Registered Nurse. I’ve chosen to become a Young Living Educator/Distributer because I love the products and I believe in using essential oils and products to support a healthy lifestyle. I use these products myself every day. Throughout my 29 year relationship with my husband, I’ve always joked that he swears by 3 name brands: Sony, Volkswagon and Apple. Well Young Living is a brand that I swear by and if you follow my posts you will see.

So these posts that I write about Young Living products are an act of educating and sharing. I have the ability to enroll and sponsor people who are interested in a Young Living membership. Feel free to inbox me jennycrn@comcast.net with questions. Along with that I can become a mentor in your essential oils journey.
