Main topic of the Show: Find Your Special Sauce


What do I mean by Special Sauce

I started out as a food blogger – ended up a podcaster and facilitator. 

How to find it:

  • What do you love?
  • What do you hate?
  • What are your naturally great at?
  • What are you naturally bad at?
  • What do other people tell you you are good at?
  • What have you tried?
  • Why did it succeed or fail?
  • When you are happiest, what are you doing? Why does this make you happy?
  • Wait 2 weeks and review
  • Tear this down to its base elements

Ex – happy at the farmers market (great at talking to people, tells good stories, quickly establishes trust, etc)

Happy in the Garden (comfortable being alone, excellent observation skills, etc)

>>>Go out and try, learn, refine, analyze until you find your Special Sauce or Sauces

I started out as a food blogger – ended up a podcaster and facilitator. 

  • Used to sing rock n roll
  • Started a food blog (could NOT motivate)
  • Became a facilitator and story expert
  • Tried podcasting for the heck of it
  • Realized some things: Performer, facilitator, teacher and storytelling with a heavy musical/verbal focus = podcasting and teaching, not blogging and WRITING.

My special sauce is Story Telling, Connecting People/networking (from others), Reading People/Facilitating.
