Hello, Michael. Thank you for talking to me today. What I’d love to know first of all is what led you into writing your book?
“My Introvert Journey to Being Visible” came about from people wanting to know how I overcame my struggles in ONE convenient place.
My old personal training clients found my story inspirational and I wanted to do that at a bigger scale.
Also, very often you see the wins, the successes… but not the failures OR how they did their successes… what actually went on for them. I want my book to be hope for introverts that they can show up even if they don’t think they can.
What obstacles did you encounter along the way?
The main obstacle with the book was writing even when I didn’t feel like it and realising that the quality of the writing wasn’t affected all that much.
And talking about overcoming obstacles, I saw online that you had helped someone become a local celebrity. What was your process?
I set up her platforms that strategically went out in front of local people and created a community that could notice and value her in a way that would transfer over into business opportunities and brand deals that she couldn’t have gotten otherwise.
How can our readers get a similar result? What would be the steps they need to take?
Reverse engineering from what you want. My client wanted to be recognised on the street and have a real celebrity feel.
It sounds odd but it does change the actions you take in you go in with the right intentions in mind.
What are your plans for the future?
I’m launching a lot as a result of the book, companies, non-profits and wanting to launch my own events.
