Know Thy Self

Posted by in Enjoy Your Job or Start a Business, Personal Development

There are many businesses that you can start to a millionaire. The trick to finding the right business is to look at who you are. You need understand your passions and abilities. This step is not easy. The part of you that you are looking for may have been repressed because you thought that you could not make money doing what you love; or you are not at the age to know yourself well enough to answer these questions. Dan Miller (of No More Mondays and 48 Days to the Work you Love) states that you have to be at least 50 years old to be able to accurately identify your passions. Even if you are under 50 and still want to find a business to start do not give up on finding your passions. You have a pretty good idea of what you are interested in but you have not fully identified it. Put your self in jobs and circumstances that will help to better to identify your passions and the skills you have been gifted with. Keep in mind though that just because you have the ability to do something does not mean it is your calling. Just keep looking; you may have to start a couple of businesses to figure out what works for you. But keep going.
