Being an Introverted Entrepreneur in an Extrovert’s World
There is absolutely no reason on this planet that an introvert can’t be an amazing leader. In fact many successful entrepreneurs and business leaders such as Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, and Richard Branson are all self-proclaimed introverts. Online gaming taught me quickly that I not only had leadership skills, but that I thrived in a leadership position.
Now of course I had experienced forms of instant global communication by living through the wonder of AOL at a young age, but online gaming was different. I wasn’t afraid to take charge leading a team and didn’t get the social anxiety that I often felt in public places. My Playstation 2 gaming days eventually led to online PC games like Counter Strike and more importantly: World of Warcraft.
So many hours. So many leadership lessons.
During my teenage years I was very overweight. There’s no way around it: I was the fat kid who played World of Warcraft. I was bullied and made fun of extensively, something I’ve been very open about and determined to help others who experience psychological torture on a daily basis.
