Are you a highly sensitive entrepreneur? - Learn about the most common traits
An estimate of 15-20 percent of the population is highly sensitive. Although it's related to introversion, and about 70% of HSP are introverts, it is not the same thing. Highly sensitive people have lower filters to sensory input, they are hypersensitive to a variety of stimuli.
In this episode I'll talk about the common traits, what it means to be highly sensitive and why it is important to know. High sensitivity is a beautiful gift. However, many entrepreneurs haven't honed in on its power and rather focus on it being a curse. This is about to change! :)
