Introverts Need Community Too

Introverts Need Community TooAs an introvert, I’m comfortable sitting at home reading a book with some classical joints playing in the background.

I love dancing around to Latin beats in my living room alone.

A day at the beach walking along the shore solo is pure heaven.

So, when I quit my day job to go full time with Working Mystic, I thought I would love the solitude of solopreneurship. A strange thing happens after 3 days in the house alone, typing away on the computer, and talking to clients.

I get cranky!

Am I breaking the introvert code by admitting that?

Even as introverts, we need community.

Here’s why…

Hugs

Human touch is essential to good living.

I’m not one for scientific studies, but…

A team researchers at the University of North Carolina found that 20-second hugs increases the oxytocin levels and reduces blood pressure.

Oxytocin is a wonder drug.

Besides inducing feelings of optimism, increased self-esteem, and trust; it also has anti-inflammatory properties and increases your metabolism. Someone say weight loss?

All this from getting out and interacting with actual human beings.

Natural Networking

If you’re like me, every time you hear the word “network”, you cringe. It just sounds disingenuous.

Yet, it’s essential to advancing your career or building your business.

Here’s a secret…networking is just a fancy word for making friend.

Being a part of a community is a natural opportunity to sincerely interact and connect. People in the group get to know you. It builds trust. Trust leads to deeper, truer relationships and friendships.

Relationships that can turn into partnerships, clients and customers.

Best of all, engaging in a community takes the angst out of “networking” and makes it FUN!

Change the World

When you actively engage in a community you become a stakeholder. Your voice is heard. And, over time, you emerge as a leader.

Rather than sit on the sidelines and talk about the changes you want to make, you now have a platform from which to make them.

Why do you seek community?
