#187 Sensitive Biz Owners are Actually Born Rule Breakers

Have you ever noticed that there’s an assumption society makes that introverts and quiet folks MUST be followers?

I had an aha moment while watching Nikki Ling’s TEDx talk “Quiet Confidence: Follow the Introverted Leader” where words were put to a bias that now seems so obvious. 

But, you know what I’ve noticed? 

Sensitive biz owners are actually born rule breakers.

This is a consistent theme I see in the folks I work with. (And in myself – yes, even me in all my Virgo Capricorn-ness.)

As thoughtful, deep feeling introverts who like to reflect and let things percolate, we have a heightened need to break free of “do this” marketing advice – formulas, templates and 10-step strategies

Part of the superpower of sensitivity is that we’re really tuned into whether something feels right

Or whether it feels off

It may be inconvenient in that it’s harder for us to just follow plug-and-play business advice. But it’s actually a gift in being able to navigate our own way…if we’re just given the space and guidance to bring our voice to the surface.

That’s why a huge part of the work I do in my Messenger Masterminds is helping Messengers tune into what’s true for them. And why it’s extra important for you and me to stay really aligned and really CLEAR. 

It’s time to reconnect to the Messenger part of you that doesn’t need more rules and trust the part of you that already knows.

That’s what we dig into in episode 187 of Quiet Messenger.

Listen in.

Deeper support from me:

  • The Quiet Messenger Mastermind is an intimate circle of women leaders and deep feelers who like cozy spaces for connection, growth and processing and who want to feel solid, confident & consistent in their messaging to grow a movement that matters ~ both to the world and to their business’ bottom line.

Where has your sensitivity given you intuitive clues that a strategy or do-this marketing tactic wasn’t for you? Let me know on Instagram.
