Creating Your Dream Career and Networking as an Introvert with Bec McFarland

Grab your free Procrasti-proof your week eBook -->

If you’re an introvert, you might find it difficult to ‘get out there’ and network with people who could potentially help you build your dream career. Bec McFarland knows that feeling all too well and is (in her own words), a ‘hard-core introvert.’ Despite this, Bec loves people and thrives on making deep and meaningful connections with others.

Bec is the Founder of Pop! Your Career, where she helps people find the answers within themselves so they can kickstart their career doing what gives them true fulfillment and purpose. I’m so happy to have Bec join me on this episode of ‘A Girl in Progress,’ where we chat about how Bec ditched the ‘agency life’ and left the soul-sucking work environment behind to launch her own career coaching business.

We chatted about:

  • How Bec went from agency work to starting her own business as a career coach
  • Fears that Bec had to overcome when starting her business before she was ready
  • The benefits of being relatable and open with others (including potential clients)
  • How Bec built her brand online despite being a hard-core introvert
  • Common misconceptions about introverts
  • How to build connections with others and overcome imposter syndrome
  • Mindset blocks that often get in the way of an introvert who wants to ‘take the big leap’ before they’re ready
  • How to be intentional about pushing yourself forward
  • Why Bec transitioned her business to one-to-one coaching
  • Bec shares her best advice for when you don’t feel ready to do something

‘A Girl in Progress’ is available as a podcast on our website and as a video interview series on our YouTube channel–so make sure to subscribe to both to keep up with new episodes!
