This episode is part of our JOYFUL ART OF BUSINESS™ series wherein we explore how to combine the positive benefits of our professional endeavors (“business”) with the overall positive emotional return on our efforts (“joy”). The act of engaging in professional endeavors, in any capacity (i.e., as an employee, employer, entrepreneur, contractor, volunteer, paid, full time, part time, intermittently, etc.) is an expression of our ideas and creative talents (“art”). In this episode we are exploring the specific topic of, “I am not a “People Person”…What jobs are best for me?”

What do you mean by “people person?” Are you confusing it with “anti-people?” Some people are rude, disrespectful and treat coworkers and customers poorly because they are miserable and choose to spread that misery to other people. This is not someone well-suited to any job (except for those where they work alone all of the time and have no communication with anyone else). 

In this program we address people who get their energy from being alone (introverts) and how they need to structure their entire lives to ensure that they are able to get fully recharged with the alone time they need (whether it is at work or at home). We also address the extrovert (who gets their energy from being around other people) and needs to structure their entire lives to ensure that they are able to get fully recharged with the time around other people that they need. 

Introverts are “people people” and are able to excel in any field that they desire (around people or alone)! The same is true for extroverts. Yet, both of them must take personal responsibility to ensure that they are able to recharge (alone or with people) whether that is on the job or off the job.

Let’s explore this topic!
