How To Find Your Passion

Figuring out your passion is probably a lot easier than you might think. There are no wrong answers. - Michelle Hagen

Michelle Hagen | The Busy Years Podcast

In this conversation, we covered:

  • Figuring out what you’re passionate about

  • Discussing how to find your passion and using it to start a business

  • The exercise Michelle recommends to use to narrow down your top passions

    • Step 1: Write down gifts and talents that come naturally to you (ie: singing, running, cook or gardener)- take 5 minutes to complete this step

    • Step 2: Write down your learned skills (ie: graphic design, meal planning, hair braiding, organization, simplifying)- take 5 minutes to complete this step

    • Step 3: Write down what you’re knowledgeable in (ie: birth coaching, fertility, breastfeeding, social media)- take 5 minutes to complete this step

    • Step 4: Take your notes and group them together into like categories (ie: motherhood, business, family, organization)- stack repeat notes together

    • Step 5: Look at all the categories and determine which one(s) don’t light a fire inside- set those aside

    • Step 6: Ask yourself which of the categories that are left light a fire inside and the skills required would be something you could talk about for 30 or more minutes; mark those with a star

    • Step 7: Take down the remaining categories and set them aside

    • Step 8: Those specific skills you highlighted are the things you find passion in. Ask yourself if there’s something in these categories that is “low hanging fruit”- things you may already be doing or skills you’re already utilizing and others are asking for

      • Take a few days to let these specific topics marinate and ask yourself important questions such as “Can this be a business?” “Could I create a course from this?” “Could I teach or coach someone 1:1 in this topic?” “Could I sell this product?”

      • Share your number one passion with your social media audience for 30 days and see what kind of response you receive
