How many times have you read a book, liked the ideas, but set it aside when you were finished, thinking, “I’ll make time to do that stuff someday…”
Well, when it comes to “The Introvert Entrepreneur,” “someday” is NOW!
My first intention when I wrote “The Introvert Entrepreneur” was that it could stand alone and that you could find value in it, even if you never fully implemented the advice and frameworks that it contains. That intention still holds true.
But as I continued to write and reflect on the book’s message and potential, and especially on my role as a coach for entrepreneurs, I realized inviting people to read the book wasn’t going to be enough.
I wanted them to take action.
That’s when the Amplify Your Strengths Online Learning Lab was born.
Over an 8-week period, you will join with fellow introvert entrepreneurs in reading the book and diving deeper into its ideas. Chapter by chapter, you’ll have access to new material, focused conversations, and carefully selected resources that will make it easier to integrate new strategies into your business.
In short, it’s book group meets mastermind group.
Of course, the entire experience is designed to be very introvert friendly. It’s a combination of self-paced reading and learning, online forum conversations and sharing, and a weekly “office hours” conference call that provides a space for accountability and connection. In addition, you’ll have an opportunity to choose a few Lab Partners to share the journey with (but unlike high school, having partners is optional!).
Each week, we’ll turn our focus to a different section of the book and look at how it applies to our lives and businesses. Here’s how it works…
Learning Lab Timeline
Week 0: Introduction to the Learning Lab via conference call
Weeks 1 & 2: Amplify Your Internal Truth to Find Your Business’ Authentic Voice (Chapters 1-3)
Weeks 3 & 4: Amplify Your Introvert Energy and Reframe Your Approach to Networking and Sales (Chapters 4-5)
Weeks 5 & 6: Amplify Your Introvert Strengths to Build Your Tribe and Spread Your Message (Chapter 6)
Weeks 7 & 8: Amplify Your Collaboration and Self-Leadership Skills to Create a Sustainable Business (Chapters 7-9)
Week 9: Completion and Virtual Celebration (optional)
Model: If you thrive on structure while valuing independence, the Learning Lab is made for you! As we work our way through the book, there will be activities – call them experiments – that put the ideas presented into action. You’ll be given a framework and action catalysts, and then you have the freedom to choose and implement according to your own needs. Each module includes time to:
Reflect: space to reflect on key questions that will help you think critically about the concepts we’re exploring, with an opportunity to post your thoughts in the group discussion forum.
Act: apply what you have been discovering, reading, and reflecting on so far. You will conduct your experiment by taking action steps that strengthen your business.
Share: your Lab Report comes at the end of each two-week learning lab, during which you share the results and lessons learned from your experiment.
There’s only one simple rule in the Learning Lab:
You must be ready, willing, and able to fail, blow things up, and leap before you look.
Otherwise, there aren’t any rules, but there are agreements. By joining in the Learning Lab, you agree to:
- Fully participate to the best of your ability
- Be open to giving and receiving feedback that’s intended to support our business growth
- Be respectful of one another and not sell, pitch, or otherwise solicit business from any other member of the group
- Contribute your knowledge and expertise for mutual learning
- Maintain confidentiality
