ABOUT THE BOOK
During her first job supervising children at a local swimming pool, Jevonya was struck with an overwhelming desire to jump off a 12-foot diving board, even though she couldn’t swim. The ambitious voice in her head saying you should jump too wasn’t one she could ignore. To accomplish this goal, she saw what she needed to do – enlist a support system to help her. Standing at the edge of that diving board, Jevonya came to understand that anything is possible with a strong network.
Many years later, she was once again confronted by that ambitious voice, but this time she came face to face with her identity as an introvert.
In this inspiring book, Jevonya challenges common misconceptions of introverts as passive, indifferent, and unassertive. She argues instead that introverts are uniquely designed to build the kind of deep, trusting relationships necessary for authentic networking.
Jevonya offers her readers a ten-step process for becoming a master networker, from an introvert’s perspective. She says, “This process requires time, patience, and hard work but one great thing about us introverts is that we aren’t afraid of hard work.”
