Without sounding too much like a self-help guru, I really am passionate about the topic and empowering others to set big goals and achieve them. I think that sometimes we sell ourselves short…

Question of the Day: Introvert or Extrovert?

A while back, we talked about understanding your personality and discovering whether you were a task-oriented or people-oriented person. Today, I want to talk about introvert versus extrovert.
