As an introvert, a solopreneur, and a creative person who puts a lot of thought into how my creations can both serve the world AND bring me income so that I can continue doing the creative work that I love, I’m always on the lookout for resources that help creative introverts thrive on the business side of things. So when I was contacted by Introverts Mean Business to see if I would be interested in trying out their digital subscription box for introverted business women that “helps you stay true to your introversion and build your business at the same time” I jumped at the chance.
Okay, so first a confession. I had no idea that such a thing as “digital subscription boxes” even exist, and I wasn’t sure what I would get with this box or what I was supposed to do with it. But it was pretty easy to figure out. It came directly to my email and contained:
A podcast-style audio file discussing that month’s topic
The box I received was focused on building authentic connection, and I really loved the little podcast. It gave me good information but it was also soothing. The narrator’s voice and the music chosen were both awesome and I could totally picture myself listening to this while soaking in the tub.
Practical tools/resources I could put to use
In my box I received specific exercises to help get me thinking about who my audience is and how I can build immediate and strong connections with them. I appreciated the way this was discussed, because it addressed the fact that I HAVE to be authentic in my business and creative work or it just won’t work for me.
A monthly challenge to help explore the topic
I also liked this one, even though I felt a bit nervous because it DID push me out of my comfort zone. However, I’m someone who is very much growth-oriented, so the feeling of stretching my wings a bit and pushing beyond what is familiar is something I am committed to doing, even if it feels uncomfortable.
Overall, I felt like this little box delivered a lot of value to me and I would definitely sign up for the service. I also think it could be helpful to introverted women in business whether you’re just starting your business, or you have an established business and you’re looking to bring in fresh energy or a new way of looking at things. I just really liked the vibe of the box overall. It feels very positive and like it’s something that’s helping me take those small steps to move ahead.

And, just so you know, I’m not getting any sort of compensation for reviewing this box for them. They reached out to me and after I sampled the box I genuinely liked it and offered to blog about it for them because I think it could help a lot of introverts out there who are like me—sensitive, creative, and artistic, but also interested in building a sustainable business that frees us from the 9-5 grind.
If that description fits you, then I hope you like the box, and good luck with your business too.
