In addition to recapping the many resources available for introverts in the sections below, I first want to spell out what introversion can mean for all of us:

I incorrect

so many are incorrect about introverts - who we are, our strengths, our contributions

N nervous

many of us are nervous, racked with low self-esteem until we discover our wonders

T time & space

introverts need time and space, to observe, to frame our thoughts, and then to share

R ready

when we come prepared to meetings and socials, we tend to be calm and confident

O observant

our observation and listening skills set us apart and enable a unique perspective

V valued

our strengths are different from bombastic extroverts - our thoughtfulness is needed

E energy-management

it's critical to monitor our energy and take breaks throughout the day to be our best

R reassurance

self-compassion: stop being your own bully and be your greatest cheerleader

S social intimacy

socialize in smaller, more familiar groups for shorter durations and leave when ready

I inquisitive

our curiosity in conversations helps us learn and relieve social pressures

O our way

we cannot succeed trying to replicate others; don't change yourself - be yourself

N not despite, but because

because of our strengths and talents, we can do amazing things. Let's get started!

Whether you are just starting your journey today, have made tremendous headway in the past, or are stuck, 2023 can be YOUR year. Start by discovering who you are and then exploring your amazing talents. This will build your skillset and confidence to find contentment and flourish in 2023.


I'm thrilled to be recognized by HushLoudly as an introvert to watch in 2023!

I hope you enjoy our community resources below. It's a great place to start your journey!

Resources for Every Introvert in 2023

We can't do this alone. As much as we introverts intrinsically wish to tackle hard things ourselves, we need guidance and support from others - those who have been down this path and can put their scars to use in making our own journey easier.

So today I share a plethora of resources from the worldwide introvert community. I've been fortunate to work with and get to know many of these people. Their talents and passions are immeasurable. Whether you are looking for a quick read, an in-depth book, a podcast to listen to, or a coach to engage with, this is a great place to start.


The picture shares some of my favorite books in my introversion library. I would also recommend a few I downloaded recently which help redefine introversion: Peter Vogt's Introvert Manifesto, Heather Hall's Step Up and Stand Out: 20 Tips for Aspiring Introverted Leaders, and Nancy Yang's The Secret of a Social and Confident Introvert.

I'd like to highlight some more powerful reads:

  • Jennifer Kahnweiler's Creating Introvert-Friendly Workplaces and David Boroughs' The Extrovert's Guide are essential reads for extroverted leaders in the corporate world.

  • Dr. Kristin Neff's Self-Compassion and Brene Brown's Daring Greatly were game-changers for me. Though they don't speak specifically to introverts, they spoke to me and changed the dialog in my head!

  • Schachter-Shalomi & Miller's From Age-ing to Sage-ing redefines what it means to get a very positive light. An important read for all of us in our mid-life crisis.

  • Angela Duckworth's Grit speaks to all introverts...indirectly. It identifies the keys to success not as bombastic personalities or even intellect, but grit...the perseverance and passion to overcome obstacles and drive toward success. These are common strengths of many introverts. This book is a confidence booster!

You can read more about these books and authors, as well as many more on my website's Resources Page.
