Three questions to ask.
- Something you love to do.
- Something you are good at.
- Something you enjoy doing.
Come up with 20 ideas.
I’m tasking you to come up with 20 business ideas. Don’t judge yourself, just put them down. The idea is to gather these ideas, then zoom down to the best one.
Below are some questions & activities that will help you find ideas:
- If you have 3 hours free this weekend, what would you do? (E.g. Cook, play tennis, read books on psychology.)
- What are things that other people find hard, but come easy to you? (E.g. Cooking, finding time to exercise, posting TikTok videos.)
- What are some skills you have developed? (E.g. Building websites, public speaking, filming videos.)
- What are the biggest challenges you have overcome? (E.g. Losing over 10KGs, failing at driving, talking to people.)
- What do your friends usually ask you for help? (E.g. Accounting, taxation, workout tips, books. )
Ask your friends!
One of the best ways to find out what you’re good at is to simply ask someone else. Very often, we perceive ourselves differently from what we actually are.
For example, I often felt that I wasn’t good at producing music (I was a music producer in my past career). However, most of my friends saw me as a music producer maestro. Clicking notes and making music on a software seemed pretty basic to me, but to my friends, their brains were almost at exploding point.
Here’s a tutorial that will show you how to ask your friends:
“Hi friend, I’m doing a freelance course. My current assignment is to ask my friends a question.
If you had to point out 3 things I’m good at. What would you say?
For example, I’d go to your for advice on Crypto investing. What would you go to me for?”
