Charge Up!

I am SO excited to announce something that I’ve been working on since April! I have co-written a book with the lovely Claire Deane and it’s all about owning a successful business as an introvert! The official title is:

Charge Up: Build a Business and Manage Your Energy with your Introversion Superpowers

ChargeUpBook copy

We’ve launched our site and if you sign up for our newsletter, you’ll receive an excerpt from the book! The chapter outlines 10 ways to defend the things that give you energy.

Claire and I both own our own businesses and as we started collaborating on multiple projects, we realized we were encountering the same issues as introverts. We are both assertive, competent and talented women (oh also, we’re both 5 feet tall) but we get way too exhausted by a lot of the small business stuff (ie: networking, small talk, endless meetings and co-working). We put our heads together and decided we needed to share all of the tips, tricks and hacks that we’ve discovered over the past 15 years combined.

We’ll be launching and selling the book by the end of September and just can’t wait! In the meantime, you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We hope to share a lot of resources, tips + inspiration throughout the process.

Again – get a free excerpt from the book by signing up on our site! Designed by yours truly.

    Congratulations Allie! I’m so excited to check out the book — I’ve been wondering what the secret introvert project was going to be, and this sounds just fantastic. Much needed!

    This books will be a great resource.

    I often find myself caught between being outgoing and being a wallflower.

      I do too, girl. And Claire and I share that trait. We aren’t necessarily shy but we ARE introverts.

    This is SO exciting Allison! Although I do not own a business, as an introvert myself, I am really interested in what you write about in this book in terms of how best to use our energy and skills -things that aren’t always ‘heard’.

    Wow, this sounds fantastic and right up my alley! I’m an introvert and find myself with similar challenges as I navigate being a freelancer + blogger. Super keen to find out more! Congratulations on bringing this project to life!

      Thank you Rachel! It can be such an adjustment (as an introvert) to transition from just a regular student or employee to managing your energy/day/schedule/people/etc. Excited to share!

    came across this ebook (through Well/Aware) and i’m excited to flip through it. as a fellow introvert, i definitely share some of the same thoughts/behaviors. especially the 15 minute warning before i change tasks and needing time to process thoughts before answering!
