The Creative Introvert Podcast

Are you a creative? A maker, a doer, an (over)thinker, an entrepreneur who gets their energy from within, who enjoy their time alone, and who is most creative when working solo? That's exactly who this podcast is for. Each week, I'll be bringing you a heady mix of practical philosophy, psychology and mysticism (with a dash of irreverence) in order to bring to light ideas that you can experiment with in your daily life. http://www.thecreativeintrovert.com/

Today I want to talk to you about… decision making.

Whether it’s deciding what flavour of ice cream you want to what you want to study at college or uni to deciding whether or not you want to leave your job or partner – decision making is really bloody hard!

Part of my wonders whether introverts in particular struggle with decision making, particularly those who are a ‘P’ or Perceiving type if you are familiar with the MBTI.

Perceiving typed in particular like to keep their options open, allowing for spontaneity and last minute changes of heart. Naturally, decision making is even less fun for these folk.

I’m a J, or a Judging type so I’m less averse to decision making itself. In fact, the sooner I can make a decision the better. BUT that doesn’t make the process any easier. My issue - and I’m sure many of you can relate - is feeling a pre-emptive fear of regret. What if I make the wrong decision? This is where the over thinking, over analysing mind kicks in.

So regardless of whether you’re a go-with-the-flow P type or an overanalysing J type - I think we can all agree that making decisions is a tricksy thing.

Of course, I won’t just leave it at that: decision making is hard. Catch you next week!

No, I have done some work for you to try and find a way we can make the decision making process somewhat less painful, and that’s what I’ll be sharing with you today.

Most of the following is content I’ve adapted from my book, The Creative Introvert, How to Build a Business You Love on your Terms - but as always, I’ll be adding in extra juice you won’t find in the book, and of course the book has lots of stuff you won’t find here.

Today's podcast guest is someone I really admire, because she's an introvert who has actually made video her friend, and rocks on camera. Amazing, I know.

Tors Grantham started her training in television broadcasting over two decades ago. She's helped create programmes that run the gamut from home improvement to the Six Nations (Rugby) commercials to behind the scenes of Doctor Who, Torchwood and Merlin.

Now she works with entrepreneurs wanting to position themselves as experts in their niche, helping them create and leverage video for their business that’s engaging, on-brand, and effective.

 

We discuss:

  • Why bother with video, if you're an introvert
  • How to get started with video
  • Why production values and equipment are not the most important part
  • Common mistakes introverts make on video
  • Imposter syndrome, lack of confidence and how to get OVER it!

This is a bit of a controversial one because I talk so much about introversion and shaping your life to your personality and preferences, which I’m still all for. I do believe we can make better decisions based on what we know about ourselves, what we tend to behave like what we prefer, where we shine and so on.

However, I’m also sorely aware of a lot of people out there who are letting introversion hold them back from living a full life. I mean, technology isn’t helping either. If I can get all the social stimulation I need from a 10 minute back and forth on Whatsapp, and get all my entertainment from Netflix and order literally everything I need on Amazon… then I can really let introversion dominate.

And actually before I dive much deeper in, I’d like to let you know about an offer I’m running as of today: it’s 30 days of FREE email coaching. Sign up here >>

Signing up means you'll get an email from me every day for 30 days, with my personal insights, tried and true tips and BS-free advice.

We’ll get into the challenges creative introverts face, overcoming obstacles, identifying what you really want - and finally living a creative life the way YOU want.

To make the most of our time as email-buddies, remember to hit 'reply' when something strikes a chord or you have a question. I’ll always reply 😃

Today's podcast guest is someone who has been on my radar for quite some time in the online social media space - and not just because she used to work for the band Megadeth.

Cara Chace is the CEO of Chace Digital, a Pinterest marketing agency, and the Founder of Pinterest PowerUp, the first Pinterest marketing membership community designed for entrepreneurs.

She loves nothing more than seeing those light bulb moments with her clients and members when they see how Pinterest builds their businesses... except for maybe a good book and another cup of coffee. You can find out more about her at carachace.com.

 

We discuss:

  • How the internet is giving introverts an opportunity to find 'their people'
  • How to build online business buddies (and why)
  • What it means to think like a fan (and Cara's metalhead background!)
  • The advantage and disadvantage of scheduling social media in advance
  • How to create a Pinterest strategy that works for you
  • The importance of repinning other people's pins
  • Why so many creatives get burned out with social media (and how to avoid that)
