Over 40 % of North Americans describe themselves as being shy. Would you?
"Do your hands start sweating and your legs shake with the thought of having to not only attend a business networking session but actually talk to people?"
"Do you feel paralyzed by the fear of rejection when you are at a business networking event?"
"Would you rather have a root canal than attend a business networking event?"
"Would you rather send an e-mail to a business lead than meet them in person and actually talk to them face to face?"
Well if any of these apply ... you may be shy!
