In today’s episode of The Daily Sweat Podcast, I’m chatting with Ian McWalter, a fellow personal trainer and founder of Hale, a mobile app that connects personal trainers with the public.

We have a great off-the-cuff chat about introversion, and how to navigate being an introvert when you’re a business owner.

Key Points of Discussion

  • Dealing with introversion in new environments, like networking events
  • The keys differences between extroverts and introverts
  • Picking up on inauthenticity in others
  • Tips and tricks for attending (and actually enjoying!) networking events
  • The importance of checking ourselves and our intentions
  • The power of strengthening your relationship with yourself
  • Learning to understand and label emotions for what they actually are
  • Simple steps to begin strengthening your relationship with yourself

Notable Quotables

  • “As long as you’re going in there with the intention of honesty and integrity and can act like yourself, usually people, if they’re faking it, will meet you on your level eventually.”
  • “Humor and laughter usually bring people’s guards down and relax more and in that relaxed state, we can all be a bit more genuine and connect better.”
  • “It’s okay to feel one way in this environment and its okay to also feel completely opposite in another environment and not beat yourself up about it that you’re not the same in both environments because it’s all dependent in context.”
  • “At the end of the day, everyone just wants to be happy.”
