Wish to know what direction to take my career

I've not posted here in a while, but I hope it is okay to post this! I am attending a wonderful Success Team group in my area. I'm vacillating on my goal and am having trouble committing.

My wish is to have a home-based / web-based business where I can work from anywhere and use the talents and skills I've acquired over the last 20+ years working in sales, marketing, plus my insatiable appetite for self-help, growth and spiritual-type reading. I desire to connect with people, teach, inspire, write, create and be of service.

The obstacle is not knowing "exactly" what that looks like.

Help and thanks!!!

p.s. I'm very creative in business, good with words, and very resourceful (like McGuiver!) when it comes to putting together applications (software) that are affordable to help create outcomes without breaking the bank.

Hi, Karen,

Do you want to brainstorm some ideas here?

Write down ideas and see which ones sound interesting and which ones you're sure you don't want to do.

For example - do you want to teach a class? Perhaps start at a junior college, then take your class on the road to people's houses, weekend retreats?

Do you want to hold workshops via Skype?

Do you want to do guided meditations at your library?

I just wrote those to get a conversation stared.

By the way, we on the Boards do not know you, and we can't look inside your head and see what you really want. So take whatever ideas you like, and leave the rest. The only person you need to please is yourself.

Good luck.

Elaine, this is awesome. Thank you! I've written more detail in General Discussion. I think that's for in-depth conversation. You input here is totally inspiring. Thank you!

Post wherever you like, Karen. Actually Wishes and Obstacles is higher up on the list and less likely to be missed.

Either way, it's good to see your ideas.

Welcome Karen!

Your post script sounds like a great "elevator pitch."
