Did you ever say to yourself, what are my gifts? my talents?
A few years ago I had a meeting with entrepreneur who wanted to expand into another business. Her dilemma was that she was not sure what type of business to start.
I asked Patti, "What are your skills?"
"Skills? I'm not sure", she answered humbly.
I knew right away that she needed my help.
I think we all struggle sometimes with identifying what we are good at.
Here are three questions you probably never asked anyone before:
- Ask three of your closest friends; "What do I do that you depend on?"
- Ask three business associates; "If I worked for you, what would you have me do?"
- Ask three clients/customers; "What is it about me that made you decide to purchase my service/product?"
Today Patti's new business is growing because she recognized her gifts and her talents and decided to do what she was good at.
