That's right, I actually love networking now, and that's saying something for a shy, sensitive introvert with social anxiety! In this episode I give you all the tips I've learned over the past 1.5 years of running my own creative business. The reason I used to hate networking is because I had a misunderstanding about what it actually is. There is a way to approach networking if you are shy, introverted, socially anxious, and/or an HSP that will make networking both enjoyable and effective!
