When I say ‘Introverts”: ‘shy’, ’loner’, ’socially awkward’ are some of the words that come first thing in our mind. Though this is true but it’s not the whole story!!
Introverts will say no to a party to finish a book they started reading, they will do anything to avoid saying a simple “hi” to a stranger, they will love a cup of coffee in a closed room than to have a tea party with a room full of people. We don’t blame them for that. Everyone is different and everyone is to be respected for who they are.
As they are prone to avoid human contacts or will say no to attend a crowded meetings, that’s why we came up with some great business plans for them. Following is the list of things that can do as a business:
Grab a cup of coffee, scan your mind and write it down on a piece of paper in a closed room. Now, that’s when an introvert will scream “Heaven do exists!!”. If you have a flair for writing, be a copy writer, a content writer or an author.
Go out and get some freelancing work, it doesn’t require any formal education but a constant motivation is needed. Your writing business needs a little investment and if done right, can give you loads of money in returns. The only key is: market yourself properly and establish networks then only your name will come out, which is necessary to have a thriving writing business.

Photography is another beautiful profession that needs lots of focus, concentration and do not forget the persistence and patience that it needs (sometimes you have to wait for hours before you take that perfect shot).
