Listing and defining your interests is a necessity, but there also needs to be a list of skills. I've found that people usually miss a number of their skills, at least they don't think of them in terms of business opportunities. For example, the issue of my family. Are you effective at organizing, planning, managing, relationship bulding? Those skills can readily translate into business competencies--once you switch context. Digging into interests can often enable you to come up with skill sets that are significantly transferable into a business. It can also give you insight into what will be difficult for you, or even what you don't like.

hi, great post Alexandra... combining purpose, passion, and interests.

If more followed your advice, there'd be fewer living for the weekend and loathing the week!

@Jef: Thanks, and I love your niche. DeceptionSecrets.com is an intriguing URL and I wasn't disappointed when I got there.

@Dan E: GREAT addition to take this metaphor even further!

@Eveisk: Dan E said the same thing. Seems like I need a follow up post, huh?

I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the good work. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.

@Alex: Thanks so much. I really appreciate you taking the time to write, and great name, of course!

It's really a good posting. I like it. It's pretty much impressive to me. i think others will agree with me.
