Great post! One of the ways that I've dealt with the challenges of being an introverted entrepreneur is through partnerships. I frequently collaborate with someone else in my field who has complementary skills, but who is more extroverted. We recognize (and respect) each other's strengths. I'm better at writing proposals; he is better at presenting proposals. As a team, I think we have a lot to offer to our clients.

I also like what Beth says about "respecting our energetic needs." I am very much aware of what I can and can't handle. If I'm going to be on the road with a packed schedule of meetings, I try to make sure I have some time to myself at the end of the day to de-stress.
