3 Big Takeaways:

  1. It’s good to stretch beyond your comfort zone: “You can do ‘extroverted things,’ even as an introvert.” 
  2. It’s ok to hype yourself, and be happy for yourself: “We choose to celebrate our (introverted) selves.”
  3. Especially now, having something positive to focus on is necessary: “It’s important to have a passion project that has nothing to do with your day to day job…Something that you find inspiring and empowering, that you know is reaching people.”

5 Key Quotes: 

  1. “Although we need a lot of time to recharge after recording (because introversion), it has been, and is very fulfilling.”
  2. “Being an introvert and doing video is hard, but we are persisting.”
  3. “The post-production takes most of the time.”
  4. “It’s great to have the freedom to talk about whatever we want.”
  5. “Podcasting is a great way to widen your circle. It’s a safe way for introverts to network, because the connections happen naturally.”
