To succeed in business, you need to be doing work that feeds your passion such that it feels more like play than work. Otherwise, you will burn out in time and both you and your business will suffer.
To find your passion, you will need to narrow your focus to a single arena. From the following categories, choose one answer from Category 1 and one answer from Category 2. Category 2 further narrows Category 1. Answer 2 will put you in the general arena you are most interested in. From there, you can begin researching professions that fit your criteria.
1. I am most interested in working with:
____ A. People
____ B. Animals
____ C. Plants
____ D. Minerals or Chemistry
____ E. Technology or Science
____ F. History
2 A—People: I am most interested in helping people:
____ i. Physically (fitness, exercise, medicine, financial or business assistance or advice)
____ ii. Mentally and/or Emotionally (learning, growth, development, psychology, therapy)
____ iii. Spiritually (ministering, counseling, guidance)
____ iv. Culturally (anthropology, sociology)
____ v. Conceptually (advertising, marketing, idea generation)
If a category other than “people” was chosen, circle the sub-category (in parenthesis) that most closely fits your interests.
2 B—Animals (training, veterinary, grooming, ranching, zoology, biology, herpetology)
2 C—Plants (landscaping, nursery, horticulture, farming, botany)
2 D—Minerals or Chemistry (Geology, Chemistry, oil and gas, biochemistry)
