Know Thyself to Monetize Thyself
Do you know what your unique gifts and talents are and how they can be used to grow your business? We often talk about the “business of being a brand” and how you can get paid for who you are versus what you do. But before you can begin to develop the business model for being a brand, you must accurately identify where your strengths are so you can use them to elevate your image, grow your audience, and develop your business model around them.
One common method of examination is to do a personal SWOT analysis examining both internal and external factors.
Write different aspects of your internal factors (personality, skills, gifts, talents, or specialized knowledge) that are strong in one list and those that are weak in another.
Strengths could be:
- Verbal skills
- Artistic ability
- Physically strong
- Computer knowledge
- Writing skills
Weaknesses could be:
- Limited social media knowledge
- Afraid to speak in public
- Not techy
- Lack knowledge of marketing
- Afraid to fly
Write different aspects of your external factors (relationships, assets, network, influences) that are weaknesses in one list and threats in another.
Opportunities could be:
- Your connections
- Membership in mastermind group
- Facebook fanbase and audience is high
- Email list is large
- Thriving business
Threats could be:
- Limiting mindset and beliefs
- Changing industry trends
- Lack of funding
- Lack of family support
