Name Monica Schrock of Unsocially Inclined
Random question: You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What colour would you be and why? The colour of the drop off into the deep part of the ocean because I’m not about that shallow stuff. 😉
Are you a bold introvert? Have you always been one? I am! I think I’ve always been bold in being myself. I’ve been fiercely fighting the negative perception of my temperament my whole life. I’ve had some moments of defeat, but they don’t last long.
What do you do? I’m a marketer! I strive to help brands and people find their voice and grow a business that truly speaks to who they are and what they want to accomplish. I’ve learned a lot from over a decade working in an innately extroverted filed, and I want to help my fellow introverts put themselves out there for themselves and their business authentically and on their own terms. I do that on my blog and coaching business Unsocially Inclined.
What are you most proud of? I’m most proud of my ability to connect with people’s vision through my writing. The look on someone’s face when I can help them put their idea into words is indescribably awesome.
Do you feel that your personality trait has helped you achieve your goals? I absolutely think so, I’ve only been slowed down by other people’s perception of it. And I’m done with that. I’m a thinker and sometimes my reaction to things isn’t satisfactory for everyone, but it serves me and my clients for me to analyse the situation in front of me.
What advice do you have for introverts who are worried about chasing their dreams? Don’t cancel the plans for your future because you’re uncomfortable. Let go of what you’ve always been told, you don’t have to change who you are to succeed. You have all the tools to run a sustainable business or grow in your career in your amazingly introverted mind.
