After more than 25 years as a successful marketing executive and single mother I have recently left the big city to live with the new man in my life. I have lots of skills and talents but I can’t figure out what to do with them in this new environment. The community I have moved to boasts a bureoning wine industry and tourism has replaced manufacturing as the mainstay of the economy. I have an entrepreneurial streak, I am very creative, I can write well enough, I have strong organizational talents and ideally I would like to start my own business – but I am stuck. Where do new bsuiness ideas come from?
The new business venture stories I read about all seem to have one thing in common - a person’s talent or passion becoming the foundation for a small business or career transisiton. Most of the stories include some ‘obvious’ link or ‘ah ha moment’ where they realized this is what i should always have been doing! Is it possible that my own new business idea is right under my nose? If so how come I can’t smell it?
