Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #171

15 Mar 2016 Lee's Tips,Seller Resources

Be prepared to say good things about your skills and abilities at a moment’s notice. I recently was looking for a person to do some project work (filling out forms, writing emails, one-page presentations, etc.).

When I asked “What are your skills?”, to a one, each of the people with whom I spoke answered back with things they were NOT good at — from “I can’t take on a project if it has deadlines, because deadlines make me nervous” to (my favorite) “I know computers, and I’m very creative, but I don’t do well with paperwork.” I was stunned.

Ask yourself, “What are my skills and abilities?” Then practice your answer. It could be the difference between finding your passion or languishing in mediocrity.
