list_of_what_I_am_good_atIn writing about being self-employed – I posted this:

Start right now and make a list of all the things you are good at.

Just let your brain run free and if you get stuck, ask your friends and family what they see you as good and great at doing.

And stay tuned for what to do with your list.

Here are the next steps!

Go back through your list and put a big * next to the ones that make you really smile :)

Lightly strike through those that you may be good at but don't feel so happy about :(

Put a ? next to the ones you feel so-so about right now

Look to see if there are similarities among the ones with a *.

Do they seem to fall into some sort of category or categories?

[for now – don't try to label the categories – just do the groupings if they are there]

Next step – put one of your groupings at the top of a new sheet of paper and have a private brainstorming session about what "someone" could do with these ideas

[it's often helpful to think of that someone else and not you]

If there are no natural grouping that you see – just take the first idea where you put a * and do as above – have your brainstorming session about that word.

You are now on your way to creating your own entrepreneurial career!


Stay tuned for more
