IBG 70 – Cindy Bidar – Reinventing Your Business as an Introverted Entrepreneur

January 11, 2019 / By Sarah Santacroce


There are a number of benefits to entrepreneurship. We have the freedom to do work we love—with the people we choose. And running an online business is particularly well-suited to us introverts who are content to spend a lot of time in our own company. But perhaps the greatest benefit to entrepreneurship is the opportunity to reinvent ourselves and our businesses when what we’re doing isn’t working for us anymore.

Cindy Bidar is a business manager who helps online entrepreneurs earn more and work less. She specializes in marketing and systems automation for coaches and freelancers, supporting clients in improving conversion rates, increasing sales, and adding to the bottom line. Cindy consults for some of today’s most profitable online businesses, training seven-figure marketing teams and leading the setup and management of hundreds of sales funnels.

Today, Cindy explains how a quest for supplemental income led her to start an online business. She offers insight around developing a willingness to attend events as an introvert and building relationships as part of a grassroots business model. Cindy speaks to the advantage of being happy in your own company, the value in tracking your numbers daily, and the benefit of eliminating distractions to pursue ‘deep work.’ Listen in as Cindy shares the AHA moment that inspired her to reinvent her business and expand her offerings beyond done-for-you services to include additional revenue streams!
