About Julia Barnickle – The Quiet Entrepreneur

Julia Barnickle - The Quiet Entrepreneur, film maker, introvert business coachHello!

I’m Julia Barnickle, film maker, polyglot, highly sociable INFP introvert business coach – and founder of “The Quiet Entrepreneur”.

Having failed to find success by following the marketing advice given by extroverts, I came to the conclusion that there is a better way for introverts to promote a lifestyle business – a quieter way.

So I’ve stopped networking and doing a lot of the face-to-face stuff that used to drain me of energy. Now I mainly use the internet. It’s the ideal medium for introverts in business – enabling us to connect with like-minded people, both near and far, without having to actually rub shoulders with them! ūüėČ

I now specialise in helping Quiet Entrepreneurs create marketing and training videos, to showcase the great work you do.

My vision for The Quiet Entrepreneur website is to build and promote a community of introvert experts; help you get clarity about your strengths, business vision and marketing strategy; and enable you to make a difference in the world by delivering your message on-line to an international audience – while managing your energy and fully honouring your introvert strengths.

This is why I created The Quiet Entrepreneur Facebook group and The Quiet Entrepreneur Introvert Business Directory.

Between 2008 and 2013, I was diagnosed with breast cancer three times. In 2014 the cancer had spread to my spine, and in 2016 to my brain – so, although each time it has been successfully treated, I have a double reason for wanting to maintain healthy energy levels. My vision for myself is to inspire and empower other introverts; to lead by example; and to ensure I get the right amount of personal space and alone time for myself.
