Discovering How You Add Value

Have you ever felt like you have some content that you would love to create? Or have people told you that you’re a good teacher? You have felt this, but you don’t know where to get started. You don’t know what topic you could teach or what value you would bring.

You feel like a jack of all trades but a master of none. If that’s you, here’s a guide to help you get some ideas:

What Others Say About You

Think about compliments you receive from friends. Have people told you things like “You made that look easy” or “Wow, how do you do that?” These could be clues to your unique giftings.

For some, it could be learning a subject like math. For others, the way they interact with people, their communication or conflict resolution skills. Whatever it is, there is something that seems simple to you but complex to others.

When you understand what you are good at, start breaking it down into simple terms for someone else. Use your gifts to help people who lack them.

Your Profession

Think about your job. Whether you’re a restaurant manager, in real estate, or sit at a computer all day messing with data. Whatever your occupation, you have learned skills in it. Many other people want to get into that industry. You are the perfect teacher to help them succeed.

Think about the mistakes you’ve made and the lessons you’ve learned. They have made you better at your job. Other people would love to hear your wisdom (and pay money for it), so they don’t make those same mistakes.

You don’t have to be a CEO or the top expert in some area to provide helpful information to others. You only have to be a little further along than someone else for them to want to learn from you.

Your Hobbies

Similarly to your profession, many people invest as many or more hours into their hobbies than into their profession. Maybe you have built remote control cars or practiced surfing since childhood. Or know how to juggle.

Some of these things may seem too silly to get you far in life, but there are always those with similar hobbies who want to learn more. The more obscure and unique the pursuit, the harder it is to find a teacher, and the more people there are who would find value in such a course.

Don’’t think about what gets you money. Think about how you can help other people and what value you can give them. It doesn’t have to be a value added to everyone on this planet. What value can you give to one person that shares a common interest?
