Introvert cure for Black Friday anxiety – online retreat!

Black Friday tends to create explosive behaviors. Those around us show heightened desires for the material, take opportunity to demonstrate aggression and compete with anything from parking spots to places in line at the checkout counter.

Be Remarkable

Introverts, Now Make Something Happen

I really love introverts. We go deeper and get more involved in the meaning of and importance of things than others do. Yet sometimes we forget to do something about it. I’ve been there, too.
