Since founding The Introvert Entrepreneur, Beth has established herself as the go-to person for introvert entrepreneurs across the globe. She is known for her sharp observations on the introvert nature, her accessibility online and in person, and her willingness to reveal her own entrepreneurial challenges alongside intelligent, heart-centered strategies for overcoming them.
