I've spent a lot of time the last few weeks really clarifying and honing in on what I'm good at.
Many of us spend far too much time doing things we aren't good at, instead of doubling down on what we do well. Which as you can imagine isn't really a great use of time.
I find it helpful to spend sometime thinking about the things you're really good at.
What do your friends and family come to you for advice for? What can you speak about for days with a reasonable amount of expertise? What do you find yourself getting 'lost' in?
If you don't have clear answers to these questions, I highly recommend you work through them.
For starters, here's what I feel I'm good at. If it comes off as a little braggy, that's by design ;-)
Writing – While I'm certainly not the best writer in the world, I know that I can use words to tell stories and move those who read what I write.
Connecting – I'm really good at connecting with others, especially from the perspective of making mutual introductions that benefit everyone involved.
Pulse on technology - I spend a lot of time on social media and keeping up with the latest trends of tech and startups. I usually have a strong grasp of where things are heading.
Marketing - Using my gift of writing, I'm pretty good at marketing and branding a as well. I have a strong eye for how brands and businesses can better tell their story.
Over to you!
