Have you been breathing lately? Are you still a human?
If yes, you might be tempted to retreat from any and all things that involve other humans and never, ever come out of your home again.
I get it. But…
Completely abandoning your routine, your clients, and/or your loved ones at the drop of a hat (or the latest news update involving untold bigotry/racism/sexism/xenophobia/all of the above) will only hurt you in the long run.
You can hermit responsibly, with minimal impact on your income and on your most important relationships.
Promise. I do that shit from November until March.
In this episode of That’s What She Said, I’ll walk you through simple and definitive steps to hermit on the regular without getting to the breaking point where you’re forced to retreat into your bedroom with only chocolate and Slim Jims for sustenance until you can face the world again.
You can go full hermit in a responsible way that doesn’t ruin relationships or freak your clients out, and this is how it starts.
P.S. This whole hermiting tendency is discussed at faaaaaaaar more length in Introverts at Work, my book about marketing and selling strategies for Quiet-with-a-capital-Q business owners.
