Know your personal strengths so your future career doesn’t suck!

I stumbled upon a YouTube video of entrepreneur Cory Miller- Finding Work That Doesn’t Suck.

I realize, being restricted to working from home limits choices, however, Cory’s thought process is still applicable. I should understand my strengths and tailor my skills to find a career that doesn’t suck. Cory suggested taking two skills test, strenghtsfinder and myers briggs. Here are my results:

 

Jung Career Indicator Results:( I understand it is similar to Myers & Brigs test)

-Sales/Marketing Specialist
-Fitness & nutrition
-Early Childhood Education
-Fashion Merchandising

 

Strenghtsfinders Results:

-Activator
-Achiever
-Responsibility
-Communication
-Consistency

 

Thoughts on results:

I have a tendency to focus on my weaknesses, it was nice to explore my strengths. I enjoying bringing warmth to those around me. I will share a good laugh and cry with you. I have been told, on more than one occasion, I am overly dramatic. Jobs where I have excelled involved building personal relationships. I have excessive amounts of ideas that flow thorough my brain. I love to be challenged and I welcome responsibility. I have no problems starting projects I believe in.

 

Now what?

With this new found information what work from home career path should I embark upon? I am going to have to really zero in and try to match these strengths with a future career. Much work lies ahead. So, when can I start?  Bring the heat because I can stand this hot kitchen!

 

Much love,
Marissa
