You have BIG dreams, but your shyness keeps you small.

You don’t want to change who you are.

You like being thoughtful, kind, creative, and a deep thinker.

But you know that your shyness is getting in the way of your goals.

Your shyness may be stopping you from…

  • Speaking up in front of others
  • Saying yes to exciting opportunities
  • Promoting your work
  • Being seen as successful

You’re holding yourself back and you’re tired of it!

I’m Nadia Finer. And I’m on a softly-spoken mission to help shy people be more mighty.

I know what it’s like to struggle with shyness.

For me, my shyness started because of my little voice – literally. I have a small voice that makes people mistake me for a kid when they ring me on the phone.

Sounding like a little kid has made me very self-conscious and shy. But, rather than hide behind my insecurities, I figured out how to embrace my little voice, push past my fears, and tap into my hidden strengths.

As a result of embracing this thing that could have held me back, I’ve built a career as a successful business coach, author, podcaster, and international speaker. I’m also possibly the least likely boxer ever to step foot into the ring!

That’s why I’m not here to lecture you, boss you around, patronise you, or force you to do things that you’re uncomfortable with. I know that you need gentle support and encouragement to coax you out of the shadows and towards your goals.

I created Shy and Mighty to help shy people of all ages overcome their self-consciousness and self-doubt and to give them the courage to speak up, step forwards and share their talents so that they can achieve big things in their own unique way.

Shy people don’t need fixing. We don’t need to change who we are.  But, in a world filled with noise and hot air, it’s time for us shy people to speak up and stop hiding. The world needs you. Your people need you. They’re waiting for you to get on with it. The Shy and Mighty Podcast is on a softly-spoken mission to help shy people be more mighty. Tune in for quiet-but-powerful words of support and encouragement, plus inspiration from lots of lovely guests.

As Seen In:


“As a former painfully shy child and young adult, I would like to thank you as a woman now in her 60s for setting up Shy and Mighty as well as for speaking so brilliantly on the TV today about the issues of shyness. You must have struck a nerve because, during the programme, I couldn’t get onto your website because it was so busy! I wish you well and hope that you continue with your message to help all those around the world who are Shy & Mighty.” 


That was such a beautiful, human, wise and profound description of shyness. You will have made a lot of people feel better about themselves and opened a door for them. Thank you.”


“Fascinating and inspirational. Should be compulsory listening for children, teachers and parents. Seeing shyness as a positive, now there’s a thing!”


“Teachers, if you have shy children in your classes (that’s probably all teachers) it’s worth listening to Nadia Finer. Enlightening.”


“You just happened to pop up on TV while I was eating my lunch! Thank you for highlighting that shyness is on the up because of the impact of Covid, but that also, being shy is not an affliction. Sensitive people help make sense of the world and provide much-needed empathy.”


“Being a mother of a very shy child I’ve just begun following you, having seen you on the news. In the past, I’ve always felt the need to make excuses for him when he won’t join in at first and always worry that he comes across as rude. But now, I can finally see how to encourage my son rather than try and defend his shyness. Thank you!”


“I saw you on ITV news last week and I cannot tell you how relieved I was that I did, was devastated when they cut you short. I felt like it was fate that I watched the news at a time I wouldn’t normally. You are amazing. I feel like you really understand my son. I could cry at how sad I feel for him, but I’m committed to helping him feel better. Thank you so much.”


Thank you for everything that you do. Just knowing that you’re my coach makes me feel confident that I can reach my goals.

Nadia is so supportive and positive and really does have an amazing way of helping you through your problems without making you feel overwhelmed or scared of what you need to do, but rather excited about what you can achieve!


Nadia has something unique that I dare say is not seen enough in the worlds of coaching: humility. Along with that beautiful virtue, her no nonsense practicality coupled with savvy know-how skills and smart strategy, make her the most lovely combo to work with. Don’t let the little voice thing fool you, she’s one kick ass coach that isn’t afraid to be herself and help you claim your place in your business and creations! I just love her, what else do you need to know?!

I can almost see light at the end of the tunnel already, Nadia! It’s early days, but my mindset is changing quickly. And that’s where it starts. Right?

Carol Ann

Cheers to being the quietest most introverted rockstar I have ever met. Thank you for all the golden nuggets of wisdom you dropped today.


You are such an inspiration. A little voice really can change the world.


You are just so cute and super honest and raw when you’re giving advice. It’s the perfect combination.
