Morra Aarons-Mele's new book, Hiding in the Bathroom: An Introvert's Roadmap to Getting Out There (When You'd Rather Stay Home), is out now.
I wrote the book because I have heard too many introverted or anxious professionals say they can’t pursue their dreams of a big career or owning a business because they don’t want to be “out there” all the time. Recent studies on burnout cite the interpersonal stress and demands of presenteeism, especially in sales, marketing and leadership roles, where extroversion is expected.
Susan Cain, author Quiet says of the book, “Introverts will love this practical and moving guide to building a career, network and life you love.”
A self-named “hermit entrepreneur” who doesn’t like to leave my house, Morra is the founder of a successful and innovative digital marketing agency called Women Online, and has launched campaigns for world leaders and organizations, including the United Nations, President Obama, Hillary Clinton for President, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Malala Fund.
