For today's aspiring entrepreneur, exploring avenues of creativity to find your passion is likely the quickest route to increase your chances of launching a successful business. Where to start? Here, five exercises to help you uncover your passion.Now, I'm not an entrepreneur, but that doesn't mean the exercises won't help. So let's take a look:
Exercise 1 - Revisit your childhood. What did you love to do?
I remember enjoying reading, making up imaginary stories, looking at neat things in neat stores, and making friendship bracelets and other crafts. Now I enjoy reading, writing fiction, looking at neat things online or at craft fairs, and knitting. So, yeah, not much change there.
Exercise 2 - Make a "creativity board."
I have always loved this idea, but other than my "ideal life" board on pinterest (which is mostly white lace dresses and huge libraries), I don't know where to start with this. Have you ever done this? Link to it in the comments.
Exercise 3 - Make a list of people who are where you want to be.
Well, now we're back to the eternal question of "Where do I want to be?" I think there's a book I need to be getting back to on that topic.
Exercise 4 - Start doing what you love, even without a business plan.
Pretty sure that's called a hobby. And I'm pretty sure, based on my Friday Reviews, that I'm doing that already.
Exercise 5 - Take a break from business thinking.
Well, considering I'm not actually an entrepreneur -- Done! Good to keep in mind in case I ever do end up with my own business, though.
How about you? Are any of you entrepreneurs? Do these tips seem helpful?
