Hi Ellen,
I really appreciate your comment; you raise an excellent point about the value of partnering with people who complement our skills. For the introvert, the right partner can be energizing and keep us from becoming too myopic in our thinking (when that protective bubble we might put around ourselves becomes too thick!). It sounds like you've created a great framework for collaboration in your business. Thank you for sharing that! Your point about energy is also on the mark. Honoring that one simple need - downtime before/after activity - can make all the difference in the world.
