How to Make Money the Introvert Way


How to Make Money the Introvert Way

Many money making tips may seem to be geared specifically for people who are extroverted, such as selling, marketing, cold calling, and anything that involves being in the public eye. However, people who are introverted have a lot of talents and their own unique ability to build wealth. Introvert strengths include studying a subject in depth, focusing, and astute observation skills. These eight money making tips can also help introverts use their natural personality to create more financial prosperity.

1. Study Money

Spend time thinking about money and about the life you want to afford. Head to the library or bookstore and check out the financial section. A few popular reading recommendations are "Rich Dad Poor Dad", by Robert Kiyosaki, "Your Money or Your Life", by Joe Dominguez, and "Think and Grow Rich", by Napoleon Hill. Read and take notes on how others have built wealth, even if the author is an extrovert. Money can be an emotional subject, but try to look at your finances objectively. Become familiar with financial terms. The internet is great for looking up definitions like asset, liability, stock, bond, mutual fund, compound interest, and such. The more educated you are about money, the better you can understand it and learn how to multiply it.


2. Develop a Financial Plan

While studying money, you will learn about how money can multiply itself through compound interest. A firm financial plan will help you learn how to use compound interest, savings, and earnings power to make more money. It's a good plan that creates wealth, not a quick scheme. So, the time you spend creating a detailed financial plan is well worth it. Take out your bank statements and divide the payments into categories. Keep expenses low, pay down liabilities such as your credit cards and car loans, and increase your assets. How can you keep expenses low and pay down your liabilities? Answer this question with a financial plan.

3. Focus on Getting Out of Debt

Introverts have the natural ability to focus on one subject, almost to the point of excluding other distractions in their surroundings. Use this personality strength to work on paying off debt. Introverts do not have as much energy for social activities as extroverts, so you don't want to expend your energy earning extra money to pay off credit cards. Your personal energy should go towards the things you love. Include a solid debt repayment as part of your overall financial plan, and stick to it. One tip that helps to keep it in perspective is to think of debt in terms of your paycheck. If you save $300 in interest charges and you earn $300 a week, that's like giving yourself seven extra days.


4. Make Money with Introvert Hobbies

Introverts, naturally, have introvert-based hobbies. Popular choices are writing, playing music, reading, drawing, and spending alone time on the Internet. An introvert who loves books could turn their passion into money making by starting a money-making book blog, selling books online, receiving fees to review books, editing, or proofreading books. Think of what you prefer to do in your spare time, and brainstorm two or three money-making ideas. Then choose the one that best fits your personality, develop a plan, and begin.

5. Conserve Money

Introverts are naturally 'wired' to conserve energy, rather than expend it in highly active environments. So, it would be a natural fit for an introvert to conserve money as well and simplify your expenses. Instead of buying books, check them out at the library. Keeping a price book and shopping sales are two common methods for saving money. Find smart alternatives to the big expenses. This is part of studying money - finding new ways to keep expenses low.

6. Roll Savings and Raises into Assets

It's foolish to save $50 on your grocery bill, then eat a $50 restaurant dinner. When you do save $50 on your grocery bill, then transfer that amount to a savings account or pay off debt. Use the same tactic when you receive raises, financial gifts, bonuses, earnings from garage sales, and any other extra money. It is deposited into the asset savings account, which then is used to buy assets like stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. That $50 saved at the grocery store will create more money: interest payments and dividends. The excitement of watching your money grow is better than enjoying a $50 dinner any day!

7. Never Believe or Follow 'Get Rich Quick' Ideas

Gaining financial freedom is a long-term process, which must be cultivated with a strong plan and good habits like keeping expenses low and buying assets. Study money, focus on your plan, and be self-disciplined enough to say no to 'get rich quick' ideas. Introverts are entirely capable of making as much money as they want. Both Warren Buffet and Bill Gates are extremely wealthy introverts.

8. Give Back

Set up three accounts for savings, assets, and donations. Start with a small amount of $25 and donate it. You can send a check or visit an online charity. As you make your money, steadily increase your regular donation amounts.

These eight tips can help you stay on the right financial track and help build wealth for yourself with a strong and steady plan. Keep reading and studying money to learn how to multiply it.

Introverts are well-suited to earn as much as you want. Use your natural Introvert strengths and make money!

I like tip #8, Give Back. Too many people do not consider their charitable giving on a day to day basis. Instead they give during times of crisis. By making it a part of your financial plan you are actively making a difference in the world. Not only is it a great way to be a good citizen, but the charitable giving receipt can help offset taxes.

Hi Availiasvision, Introverts are not shy by definition, they simply become drained by social encounters and need time-out to think about things.

Hi vocalcoach, Thanks. People who decides to build wealth usually make certain decisions and set certain rules for themselves - none of which are hard nor complicated, one of them being 'giving back'. Introverts actually make the best leaders. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it:)

Thank you so much Hyphenbird. What we give to others, we give to ourselves. That can be applied even to our financial plan. Not only are we helping others when we give back (which is truly a wonderful thing on its own), but we can help offset taxes. Donations to charity are tax deductible expenses. :)

Hi Volitans, Thanks. Making money, but most importantly saving it can pose a challenge for many of us, as it can often seem that it has a way of slipping through our fingers.

daisydayz profile image

daisydayz 4 years ago from Cardiff

I have started putting any extra monies earnt online into a separtate account to start saving for a down payment on a house, i usually just added it to my regular account but realised we weren't managing to save anything extra each month as we don't earn a lot. But if i just put this little extra into another account I wasn't touching it (I pretended it didn't exist! lol) and it is slowely starting to grow (even if it is only a tiny amount at the moment) it is extra money that isn't factored into my general income so I can't really miss it!

Jangaplanet profile image

Jangaplanet 4 years ago Author

Hi starstream, Thanks. Are there any good savings account anymore giving compound interest? I am not sure I understand your question, as I am not familiar with how it works in California. One should just look around to find the best bank rates and see what they have to offer. Compound interest is a wonderful thing, and the longer your money has to grow, the more it will grow. But you must start saving very early to achieve the best results (compound interest). Here in Canada we have interest-bearing savings account, bonds, mutual funds or stocks accounts. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it. :)

Its very good to read something aimed specifically towards introverts and I found your list of tips very useful. I think the job market in particular can be very difficult for those who are introverted. Employers seem to place a very high emphasis on stereotypically extrovert skills and I have encountered a lot of introverted people who either struggle with their jobs or struggle to find jobs because they can't figure out how their skills can bring strength to an organisation.

Very helpful tips. I appreciate the clarity that you provided that introverts are not necessarily shy, insecure and unable to function in the "outside" world, yet, many prefer a different type of social balance as opposed to their extroverted counterparts. And yes, there are many successful introverts, some are even rich and famous through writing, etc. and just from finding their perfect niche!

Denmarkguy profile image

Some good ideas here! Being debt free is about the best "interest rate" you can pay yourself, as NOT having to pay 18% interest on some credit card is a much better return than most investments these days. These days I make my living almost entirely from my hobbies... which are mostly solitary pursuits... so that definitely can be done.

Hi stoichen, Some of the world's most richest people are introverts, such as warren buffett and bill gates. Okay they're millionaires, but even so. I agree that some employers tend to place a high emphasis on stereotypically intrvovert skills. However, they need to understand that there are no right or wrong ways of functioning but simply differences. Introverts have strong listening abilities and have a lot of learning skills and habits which make them brilliant. Thank you so much for stopping by, much appreciated. :)

Hi TajmaHill, thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. You are absolutely right. Introversion and shyness are not the same thing. Believe it or not an extravert can be equally shy but still interact with people. Example: You can be a very shy extrovert, like Barbra Streisand, who has a larger than life personality but with severe stage fright; or you can be a non shy introvert personality, like Bill Gates, who keeps to himself but is unfazed by the opinions of others. You can of course also be both shy and an introvert! Thanks again for stopping by, much appreciated.:)

Do you think blogging is an activity that introverts enjoy? Or is it more social that extroverts would enjoy more?

Jangaplanet profile image

Jangaplanet 4 years ago Author

Hi BlissfulWriter, it is an interesting question! Of course blogging is an activity both introverts and extraverts enjoy. There source of energy may be different, but both types can do it. I also think some may not feel like opening up to the world at times. But that works both ways. I think an introvert can be shy, but then again there are also shy extroverts, believe it or not. Many actors are introverts, but not necessarily shy. Even though an introvert enjoys being alone, when they go online, they are always seeking out others and constantly have something to share. Blogging can form connections for introverts without draining themselves out, giving a chance by interacting on a limited basis. It’s about enjoying yourself. One should realize that there are (quiet) extraverts and (outspoken) introverts. Not sure why that is, but it is what it is. So blog away! :)

Janga, I had thought I had already commented on this one, but perhaps I was feeling too "shy" that day! :) I am an introvert and this was very interesting to me. I enjoy saving money and not spending, and never associated that with introversion, but it makes sense. To confirm the theory, my husband is far more outgoing, and has loved to spend. He has toned down his spending since we got together.

I love what you said about making money from your quieter hobbies, too. It's not an easy path to follow, because it is not the well trodden path, but I do believe it is possible. Thank you for a wonderfully written, insightful hub. Great job and voted up and more. Shared.

You are most welcome EyesStraightAhead. I am glad to hear this hub was of help to you. Thank you so much for the kind comment, I appreciate it. :)

Hi prospectboy. I agree that most think being sociable is an important prerequisite to making money. But being an introvert doesn’t mean that one can't enjoy life or succeed in making money. There are so many rich, accomplished and successful introverts! But it just happens that being sociable is not where they get the most value from life. But successful they are!

Jangaplanet profile image

Jangaplanet 4 years ago Author

Hi prairieprincess, good one! lol. Introverts usually do a pretty decent job at saving money. Extroverts can take an example from introverts in that regard. It's true that outgoing people tend to spend more, this is why being an introvert gives you an advantage at saving it. Being an introvert is not a flaw like most would claim, but an opportunity. Introverts are naturally analytical. However, both personality types (extroverts & introverts) can accomplish same goals (in regards to money/ finances), they just tend to use different energy sources/methods to achieve it. Thank you so much for the kind comment, for the vote and for sharing, I appreciate it. :)

You are most welcome pringoooals, thank you! Both personality traits come accomplish the same results. They just use a different source of energy to achieve it. The instesting part though is that depending on the situation, we all sometimes display both extroverted and introverted character traits. Thanks for the vote and sharing, I appreciate it. :)

I'm an introverted person, and I don't like to do some marketing jobs or sales jobs, something like that. I'm glad I've come across this, it will be my important guide from now on. I'll vote this great hub "up" :)

I think I'm both an extrovert and introvert so these tips definitely speak to the introvert in me. A plan is a good start and I agree that financial freedom doesn't happen overnight but is a good goal. With online opportunities everywhere there are many options. Voted up!

Thanks healthylife2! I concur. I feel I have both elements, both sets of traits depending on mood and circumstance. We're all a little introvert and a little extrovert. I agree, there are many opportunites online. :)

Another great hub. I vary sometimes in this area (introvert versus extro) Lately, I have made some "me time" before I get active again. Informative article

This article looks simple, but it is definitely insightful. What we know might not what we understand and you describe it there. Voted up, useful, awesome, interesting and beautiful... can't vote for funny as it ain't funny at all :)

God bless,

Thanks for the informative article. I'm an introvert who loves finances, so this is right up my alley. I only disagree with one part (and it is a very limited disagreement). Getting out of debt, for certain people, isn't necessarily the best way to spend their money. I have a 6% interest rate on student loans and some people have a 3% home mortgage. If you can earn an interest rate above your debt interest rate, then it's better to invest than to pay down the debt. There are other factors that come into play, but I think this ties into your objective look at your finances.

You are most welcome R W Bobholz. I am sort of both, introvert and extrovert! Depends of where I find myself and the situation! You are right, I guess we all have a different way of dealing with debt. I used the method you mentioned! Thank you for stopping by my friend, I appreciate it!

Hi alphajuno, thank you :). I really appreciate it! It seems that there a plenty of introverts, here on Hubpages! :)

Haha, Collisa! It's good being an introvert! they are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. And even though they do lots of thinking, they can tackle any problems, solve any puzzles. What can I say?.. Introverts are internal processors and Extroverts external processors, they're both processing, just in different ways! thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it :)

Voted useful and interesting. As an introvert, I love seeing the introvert perspective applied to different areas of life. Finance certainly does seem to be controlled by the exraverts (what isn't?) but it's great to know that we bring strengths to the table that can be used to our advantage. Thanks for sharing!

Great tips! It is a great idea to stay away from the get rich quick schemes and to watch out for scams that steal money, etc...from people. Studying about money makes really good sense--nice hub! Donating money sounds like a nice way of saying thanks.

You are most welcome lanablackmoor :) Introverts are all over the place! Have accomplished so many important things! There are so many! Albert Einstein, Steven Spielberg, Katherine Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, Sir Isaac Newton, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Warren Buffet to name just a few. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it. :)

Hi gail641, thanks! We tend to attract things in our life that we focus on.. And subconsciously.. donating money is a way of saying thank you! Also, when we make a donation, not only are we helping out, but can also receive a tax benefit from it. Thank you so much for stopping by, I appreciate it. :)

Thank you for adressing the needs of the introvert. You are so right when you say that a most of the advice out there is geared towards outgoing people. I have read the some of the books that you suggested and they are great reccomendations.
