Meghan Wier is known for melding her professional style, keen business sense, and desire to share her work and life experiences with others. An introvert/forced-extrovert, her relationship-building savvy and strong marketing skills have made her a recognized expert in building through networking. Ms. Wier is an influential authority on business networking and marketing.
From ForeWord Magazine (12/10/08):
"[E]xtroverts gain energy from other people and introverts feel like they just get the energy sucked out of them by other people," author Meghan Wier writes. She is an expert on marketing and networking, and a self-proclaimed introvert. Wier insists that introverts can become charismatic speakers and great leaders. She helps readers along the way with sections on identifying sources of anxiety, building confidence in tough situations, becoming an expert in one's field, and organization. In order to make public speaking easier, she recommends that readers write down everything they dislike about speaking and why, then come up with actions that will offset each item.

Confessions of an Introvert: The Shy Girl's Guide to Career, Networking and Getting the Most Out of LifeUser Review - Book Verdict
Introverts will find more niche marketing than useful guidance in this slapdash self-help. Weir's suggestions are bland, obvious, often irrelevant and sometimes plain juvenile; helpful exercises include filling out the chart, "What do I want out of my life?" and selecting words from the "I Am vs. I Will Be" columns. Weir's observation that we get paralyzed by our routines is viable, but the model of success she provides-breaking out of her black boot routine by buying a pair of platinum shoes-would be laughable if it weren't so unhelpful. Unfortunately, all of Weir's examples come from her own life, diminishing the authority and practicality of her work, and many of her solutions (like hiring someone to buy the groceries and organize her closet) involve throwing money at the problem, hardly a viable solution for a reader still looking for her break. If, as she says repeatedly, Weir has such a wide circle of contacts, she probably should have used them to get some perspective-or at least some better anecdotes.
