I do not want this post to come across as though I have no ideas or commitment in my current line of work or career, because I love my Photography and excel at talking to people and making new connections. Recently though, I have been experiencing doubt as to what I should be concentrating on!
I can not help thinking I missed something, a vital piece of career advice when I was younger, without this information I would be doomed to doubt for the rest of my life!
I decided to take a proactive approach instead of thinking the worst, first I started listing my skills:
- Interpersonal skills
- Social media
- Lead generation (closely related to communication)
I get to about here on my list then stop, I have never been able to add 'blowing my own trumpet' to this list before and am still unable today! I am 38 years old, currently concentrating on my Photography business and growing a Lead generation consultation path in my spare time. So why am i feeling like I should be doing something else? I then listed what I would love to do:
- Radio presenter (Interviews and interesting articles. An example of my love of broadcasting can be found below)
- Lecturer (On what I have no idea!)
- Councillor (The relate kind, not the MP kind!)
- Social worker
I would love to hear from people who are doing what they love, maybe I could come and interview you?
