Want a career (or business) that brings a smile to your heart? Don't know exactly what that career might be? This list of ideas can start you on your way. Make process fun by scheduling a visit to your favorite place -- beach, mountains, whatever -- where you can compile your lists and daydream too!
Seven years ago, I completed process described below by trial and error -- or was it error and error?! I didn't have a non-biased person, such as my coach or a consultant to support and assist me in process. I created process as I went along. You are much luckier than I was at time! You have this Life Resume and you know where you can go to hire a coach!
Take an assessment test: personality, skills, etc. I have compiled a few lists of free online assessment tests and quizzes for you at www.coachmaria.com/articles.html Also check your local phone book for college career centers, career consultants, or career counselors who offer such tests and many other helpful services too.

Start a new type of resume. List first paying job you had and then start writing all tasks you performed. You will not be graded on your penmanship... promise!
Compose a volunteer resume, same format as listed above - listing positions and tasks you performed.
Create a list of what you volunteered to do when you went to school. What organizations did you belong to? What projects did you volunteer for? If you're a mom and/or wife (dad or husband), add lists for those areas too! You're putting together a "this is your life resume".
