Have you ever noticed how…
The happiest people in the world a) know what they love to do and b) found a way to get paid to do it.
If you aren’t lucky enough to be one of them (yet!!!) then you probably fall into one of these three categories:
1) “I have no clue about what I even love to do anymore.”
You’ve been so focused on doing work you either no longer (or never did) enjoy, that you don’t have a clue as to what it is you even love to do!
I affectionately refer to folks in this group as my “clueless” people.
I get that you’re frustrated.
But the great thing about being clueless is you’re starting with a delightfully blank page!
In fact, take out a blank page right now and label it… things I like to do. It could be helping co-workers trouble shoot problems or taking long drives.
Next make a list of your interests. Things like sports or current affairs or pop culture.
Finally, list your gifts.
These are the kind of things that come so easily to you that you probably take them for granted.
Like a gift for humor or selecting just the right wine or finding treasure where others see only trash.
As you make your list, remember, when you’re clueless, the possibilities are truly endless!
If you need a little inspiration, check out this super cool list of Unique Work Experiences in Far Away Places by Linda Tomsho. Linda is one of two Changing Course Dream Team coaches.
(You’ll meet Kate, the other Dream Team coach in just a moment.)
But first… maybe you fall into the second category…
2) “I know what I love to do. But I have no idea how I can make money doing it.”
There are SO many ways to earn good money in fascinating and untraditional ways!
You need to start paying close attention to all the different ways others have already found a way to turn your particular interest into income.
It may take time to find your right path.
But as long as you’re excited to find a way to make money outside of the job box – the fact that you already know what you love to do is a great start!
3) “I’m a scanner who has so many passions that I can’t pick one.”
I hear this one a lot!
If you identify as a “scanner” then you’re already familiar with the term first coined by career guru Barbara Sher.
Unlike “divers” who Barbara says have a laser-like focus on one thing – scanners have lots of gifts and interests!
To the clueless folks this sounds like heaven.
But being a scanner can also present certain challenges.
For one thing, you may find once you’ve mastered something you get bored and are ready to move on.
However, a far BIGGER challenge for scanners is this:
You’re so afraid that pursuing one passion will automatically mean you have to turn your back on all the other things you love to do — that you wind up doing nothing!
Any kind of fulfilling work life can be frustrating for scanners –more so if you want to be your own boss.
But the beauty of being a scanner is you get to fully embrace the freeing power of multiple streams of income!
The fact is, you really can restore old dolls and be a shyness coach and start a money-making YouTube channel… or pursue any number of things.
You just need a little help zeroing in on and then managing all of your multiple gifts and interests in a way that makes you happy.
Barbara’s book Refuse to Choose is a great place to start.
But if you need more…
Help for Idea Seekers Who Want to Work At What They Love
Regardless of what category you’re in, it all comes down to being able to connect the dots between what you love to do and how you can make money doing it.
If you’ve been struggling to figure it out on your own for years… or decades… and have nothing to show for it, you’re certainly not alone.
That’s why I’ve put together a solution that will work whether you’re a stay-at-home parent, a frustrated cubicle dweller, or a soon-to-be or recent retiree just starting on the track to self-employment.
For an extremely limited time, you have the chance to be a part of an intimate yet highly-focused group created specifically for Idea Seekers like you.
Think of it as a combination workshop and support group guided by an expert in how to find and profit from your passion.
A group where you’ll gain exactly the kind of personal insight and tools to…
- Show you how to tap into long-buried gifts and interests… the things you were born to do!
- Overcome “scanner paralysis” so you can pursue some or all of your unique gifts!
- See income-generating opportunities just waiting to be tapped
- Identify the roadblocks holding you back… so you can actually live the life you always wanted
- Create a manageable plan of action for launching your dream – yes, even if you’re a scanner
The group is being led by one of my licensed Profiting From Your Passions® coaches, Kate Fessler.
As an escapee from the corporate world herself, Kate specializes in helping people who are similarly disaffected by the demands and diminishing rewards of their current situation to reconnect with their passions.
To help you clearly define the life you want to live… to step away from the herd of those who think there’s no other way… and to realize your potential to make a living doing something (or multiple things) they love.
And now Kate can help you too.
We’re intentionally keeping this group super small.
That way you can get lots of personalized attention and ideas from your coach.
There are only 4 spots left.
And when you join in the next 48 hours you’ll also receive a FREE downloadable copy of a resource that’s already helped countless people around the world.
It’s called It’s Never Too Late to Find Your Calling.
Others pay $19.95 for their copy.
But it’s yours free when you join a Dream Team on or before Sunday September 13th
If you really want to work at what you love, then do yourself a huge favor and take a moment now to see if being a part of the Idea Seekers Dream Team is right for you.
If you have a powerful desire to own your life and time… if you want both flexibility and money…
And if you want to do work you enjoy – with only 4 spots left, I urge you not to miss this chance.
