Do you know whether your son or daughter is an extrovert (who gets energy from being with people), or an introvert (who gets energy from quiet time spent alone)?
In my book, I make a strong case that figuring out the delicate nuances of personality type is critically important for future career success and satisfaction.
(If you already own LAUNCH, you can see what I’ve written on this subject in chapter 13, which starts on page 133.)
Once you know your child’s natural introvert/extrovert tendency, here are some great ways to give him or her extra care, love, and nurturing during the growing up years.
(This will also work on your spouse–and on your employees and co-workers!)
Both extroversion and introversion are equally valuable personality types, but sometimes the great value of introversion is overlooked in our culture. If you love an introvert (or if you are one), don’t miss this fantastic TED Talk by author Susan Cain. Susan reaches millions of people through her books, podcasts, and her mission-based organization, Quiet Revolution, which “empowers introverts for the benefit of everyone.”
You can purchase Susan Cain’s groundbreaking book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking here.

There’s no part of parenting more important than setting your kid up for successful college and career life.
For clear, step-by-step help getting your kids through college debt-free, don’t rely on a loose collection of blog posts. You’ll miss hundreds of details that way. Instead, get your copy of my book:
You can “Look Inside” the book on Amazon for free by going to:

You can see the “Top 9 Questions Parents Are Asking Me About LAUNCH,” here.
Read just one chapter of LAUNCH every 1-3 months while your child’s in middle school and high school, and you’ll know every viable strategy for debt-free college at exactly the right time to implement it.
And if your child’s already well past middle school? That’s OK; you can run to catch up. But the process of getting your kids through college debt-free goes more smoothly the earlier you start it – especially if you’re not planning to save up any money to pay for college.
