Susanna Reay on how introverts can build a successful online business around their expertise
Apr 03, 2021 Season 1 Episode 9
Alex Reid

Alex is joined by Susanna Reay to discuss the strategies and systems that introverts professionals can use to build a successful online business around their expertise. 

Susanna helps introvert and highly sensitive entrepreneurs to package their expertise making it easier to scale their business through high value offers, courses and membership programmes.

She describes herself as a highly sensitive social introvert who, like so many of us, has had her fair share of struggles trying to make extrovert centric online business training courses and networking groups work for her but leaving her feeling inadequate.

Susanna brings a highly valuable and somewhat unique set of qualifications and credentials to her work. In addition to holding an MBA, her undergraduate degree is in Textile Design, and design management. Her eye for colours means she is able to support her clients in developing the visual aspects of their personal brand.

During our conversation, we discuss:

  • The “Time versus Money” conflict that many introvert business owners face.
  • The benefits of building your business around your inner introvert superpower. 
  • The common challenges that many introvert knowledge professionals face when making the transition from employment to start their own online business. 
  • How to build your visibility on Social Media without becoming overwhelmed. 
  • The importance of sequence when building your visibility online.

Upcoming Introvert in Business Events


As I mention during this episode, there are a couple of upcoming online events that I'm personally supporting and recommend that you check out.  They are both designed to support employed and self-employed introvert professionals, and leaders who have responsibility for managing introverts.

Performance Through People Summit - This takes place between April 12th and 16th 2021. It's a  summit for HR professionals, business owners and leaders who want to increase productivity from their teams, while increasing staff loyalty and reducing staff turnover. Tickets are free, but you need to book in advance.

Presentations are between 11:00 and 13:00 daily from April 12th to April 16th, you can select tickets for one or all days.

You can see me speak at the event on April 14th at 11:50am. I'l be sharing my thoughts on  how to maximise the productivity & wellbeing of all the introverts in your business, from sixteen to sixty.

The Continuing Rise of the Empowered Introvert -  This is a free live moderated panel discussion & Q&A tha takes place on May 27th.  Introvert professionals  from around the world and across generations are coming together to learn about strategies that help them to harness their natural strengths and improve their personal & professional wellbeing.
