Co-founder of consumer review site Angie’s List, Angie Hicks is a female entrepreneur that we could all do with taking some inspiration from. With a career of great success behind her, it comes as a surprise that she is a known introvert, making her the perfect example of how to achieve success without having an abundance of confidence.
“You learn from people regardless of where you are in your career.”
It doesn’t matter if you are just starting out in your career or if you have a lifetime of experience, there are always lessons to be learned. This advice applies to everybody, not just introverts, try to take a leaf out of someone else book, and learn how you can better yourself with the knowledge of others.
“My favorite motivators have always been just down the hall.”
Often we look to those who are a big name to gain inspiration. Many people haven’t heard of Hicks, but that hasn’t stopped her from having a lifetime of success. Take little bits of motivation from those around you, and be realistic with the expectations that you set yourself.
“I have to work to stretch outside my natural comfort zone in those scenarios.”
If you are an introvert then it’s likely that many situations that you are placed in during your career will make you uncomfortable. While throwing yourself in at the deep end can seem daunting, you have to be prepared to work in situations that you may not like for you to be able to grow as a person and in your career.
