Finding Your Ideal Career (or Business)

Written by Maria Marsala


Continued from page 1

Create a list of every career you've ever thought you might enjoy since you were 5 years old. (Ages 6-10 are extremely important!)

Now go back to all your lists and cross off every task that drove you crazy, or that you couldn't stand doing, or that you promised yourself you'd never do again! Ask yourself, "is this something that I would enjoy doing for 8 hours"?

Take a look at what you are left with and look forrepparttar patterns. For example: Did you enjoy teaching in each paying and volunteer position you've held? Does organizing or working with numbers or working with your hands come up in your descriptions time and time again? Does a clear picture of your ideal career or business shine through?

If your ideal career isn't evident yet, try these resources: ~~ Visitrepparttar 131455 Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook at http://stats.bls.gov/ocohome.htm ~~ Ask people, what careers someone would have if they were doing __________ (the things you enjoy doing)? ~~ Consider this...you haverepparttar 131456 perfect life while you are enjoying working. What would you be doing? OR you won a million dollars andrepparttar 131457 only stipulation in receiving it is that you'd have to continue working. What would you be working at?

Now, go find your ideal career (or business)! Or create something wonderful and new!! Take some classes if need be... and above all, SMILE...
