Any advice for introverted people who freeze up when trying to reach out to potential clients? Cliff Nowicki, Southfield, Michigan, USA NP: When you’re in business, being an introvert is hard! But you can ease the suffering by planning ahead. I’ve found it helpful to create a list of everything that I need to do, say or accomplish in a meeting, before I go in. This way, even though I may still struggle, I know that I’ll have everything I need to write a great proposal and complete a great project.
