Have you considered starting a consulting business but wondered whether an introvert is cut out for this career? When you think about selling your services – OMG, selling!—does the idea have you breaking out in cold sweats? Well, the stereotypes are wrong. Don’t tell the extroverts, but being an introvert might actually make you a better consultant and…drum roll please…even better at sales.
Susan Schaefer founded her foundation grants-focused consultancy, Resource Partners LLC, in 2001. Since then, she has been on a mission to help other budding consultants get on a fast track to success. Susan co-edited of The Nonprofit Consulting Playbook and has facilitated workshops on this topic nationwide with Don Tebbe.
Join two veteran consultants—and Myers-Briggs-certified introverts—as they present a fast-paced session about what they have learned from the research and from their own experience. (They might even have a tip or two for you extroverts who want to come over and see what the cool kids are doing.)
Susan Schaefer and Don Tebbe are the founders of Going Solo Going Big and have led workshops for new consultants around the country. During this power hour, they highlight one of the questions they have been asked most often: How can I be both an introvert and a successful consultant? If you want to know the reality of what you will encounter and how best to achieve your business goals, this webinar will help you ease your way from your corporate, nonprofit or government role and into a successful career as an entrepreneur.
After over a decade as a nonprofit executive, Don started consulting 1993 as a solopreneur. In the early 2000’s, he cofounded a firm that grew into a seven-figure national practice. He sold his share of that business in 2013 and is pursuing an encore career helping leaders plot their next career move, including how to succeed as a consultant.
