These days, it’s common to move on from jobs or careers, change course and succeed in fields completely unrelated to your university degree or early training. To get started brainstorming plans for a creative business or to take your existing shop to the next level, you’ll want to first take an honest look at your resume, life experience and skills. Then ask yourself:
  • What are you good at?
  • What do your friends come to you for, asking for help? What do they admire about you?
  • What hobby or seemingly unimportant activity leaves you with a feeling of fulfillment or satisfaction?
  • What did you study in school? What did you like about it?
  • What did you love about your favorite job?
  • What did you loathe about that other job — the one that made your stomach turn on the way to work every morning?
  • If you have a shop already, what do you enjoy about running it? What don’t you enjoy?
Ask yourself these questions, and answer them honestly. The idea here is to identify, in broad strokes, the type of work that brings you creative joy and aligns with your values in life.
