An Introvert’s Guide to Putting Yourself Out There
My guest for this week’s episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is Morra Aarons-Mele, founder of Women Online and the mission list. She is also the author of Hiding in the Bathroom: An Introvert’s Roadmap to Getting Out There (When You’d Rather Stay Home), and host of a podcast of the same way. She and I discuss how many people who are speakers, salespeople, and in the public eye, are actually introverts.
Morra’s Internet experience spans politics and the private sector. During the 2004 Presidential Election, Morra was the Director of Internet Marketing for the Democratic National Committee. After the 2004 election, she founded Edelman’s digital public affairs team where she worked with Fortune 50 clients. Morra worked in various roles at leading online companies in New York and London, including iVillage.com, eBookers.com, and at iVillage UK, where she managed public relations and marketing.
She was founding Political Director for BlogHer.com, and has written for BlogHer as well as The Harvard Business Review, The Huffington Post, MomsRising, The Wall St Journal, The New York Times, and The Guardian. She has covered events from the White House to the campaign trail to Harvard Law School in her role as a blogger on women, politics, and work. Morra has taught at the Yale Women’s Campaign School, the Harvard Kennedy School, and at the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders forum at Harvard, as well as at the Johns Hopkins Graduate School of Communication.
