Learning what your talents and gifts are and then putting them together with your passion and finding what you love to do will have profound effects on your life.
I grew up on a farm and ranch in northern Montana with a father that was a great teacher and politician. He taught me to work hard, have a work ethic and have the ability to start and lead a conversation. My mom was an incredible cook, caregiver and hired hand, with the ability to do all things.
By the time I was 6 years old I was driving farm equipment. I had a farmers drivers license at the age of 12 and my a checking account.
In college I knew management was my major and then marketing had an appeal. Although learning was always fun, studying and passing an exam was challenging.
Today, I’m fortunate to say that I have found my passion; empowering others, solving problems and building startup companies.
I continue to watch people struggle in their professions, looking for something else and not knowing where to look.
Here are some steps that can assist you in discovering your passions
1) What are your talents and gifts
What have others complimented you on? Ask your family and friends what you are good at, what they see as your talents and gifts.
2) What things irritate or cause frustration
Are there people or personalities that annoy you? Who in your life makes you angry and why? My father told me sitting around was a waste of time, keep busy and productive. I have since learned that quiet, reflective time is important and being busy doesn’t always lead to productivity.
3) What can you do late into the night
Can you read late into the night? Are you working on that jigsaw puzzle until it is done? Do you dance until the last person is gone?
4) When can you do quickly, that comes natural
What are able to do with little or no thought, it comes almost natural. You could this in your sleep.
Find your motivations and those things that keep you awake at night trying to figure out. Ask yourself what you would do with $1,000,000,000.
6) What are your peak moments
What moments and events in your life seem to define who you are? No matter whether the event was pleasant or not, make a list and see if the moments have similarities.
7) Inventory your day
Take an inventory of your day for 30 days. What do you like, what do you not like. Is there a pattern.
8) Who do you spend your time with
Are those people you spend time with encouraging or frustrating? Who you like to spend time with and why?
What lights up your face? What makes you smile? What television programs make you the happiest? What makes you peaceful?
10) What would you do for free
Think about something that you would just love to do, no matter the pay or even without pay. What would get you out of bed at 5AM.
11) What do you talk about
Ask friends and family what you talk about the most. What do you post about most on social media?
12) Slow down
Take a camping trip, get away, hike into the woods, stay in a hotel away from home. Do something different; yoga, walk, or sit quietly reading.
13) What do you do for fun
In your spare time what you like to do? Where do you go and what do you do on vacations? What makes you smile? What makes you laugh?
How do you differentiate from others. What do you do different from your friends. Make a list; coffee, how do you cook a certain recipe, gardening, designing your home. Has anyone made comments on what a great idea or way something is done?
15) Find a mentor
Find someone who you respect, that is able to listen and wants to see you find your passions. Hire a coach, read a book or do research on the internet.
Answer these questions and then start. It does no good to have an inclination and stay put – go forward and try something new and creative. Here are some ideas.
Blog about your passions. Write on any topic you can imagine.
Teach / tutor / mentor
Start with volunteering for a few hours a week. Teach at Sunday school, volunteer in the school or mentor a child in your neighborhood.
Be of service
Remove snow for your neighbor, help with a painting project, mow your neighbors lawn, walk your friends dog and the list goes on.
Make videos. What app do you spend most of time with on your phone? Create an ad for a company that you like or shop at.
Produce and sell
If you like gardening, making cards, handmade soaps, jewelry, homemade foods, etc. Produce a small amount and sell them at a farmers market or to your neighbors and friends. What comments do you get about these products?
Take a class
Find an online class, a class at a community college or private company that interests you. Get on line and look at the classes that are offered at a college and find a subject that sparks questions or interest.
Find a day and a couple of hours a week to volunteer; maybe at school, the library, museum, hospital or nursing home. What knowledge or connections do you have that can assist others?
Find a solution
Do you see an issue at work, home or in your community? Have you ever commented on how something should be done differently? Make a plan and present it to a committee.

Go Light – When It Comes To Packing
Saying you are taking one suitcase and taking one suitcase is another thing all together. So I tried this on a recent 12 day trip to New York City.
1 Know what clothing and especially shoes are worn in the area you are traveling to. In New York City many people, especially women wear tennis shoes and flats, because of the walking and running to catch the subway.
2 Wear clothing more than one day and layer your clothing
3 Forget all the fancy shoes and take what is needed to be comfortable.
4 Toiletries – this is where I struggle. So get some little containers. Forget packing shampoo, rinse, and blow dryer for hair as most places will provide these in your lodging. Body wash and sun block can be purchased once you arrive at your destination, usually inexpensively.
5 Find coats that are warm, yet not bulky. I take my puffy coat, it is like a sleeping bag and folds up very small, yet is warm.
7 Pack for 7 days, no matter how long your traveling, pack just for 7 days when it comes to clothing. Use shampoo to wash clothing and hang in the shower to dry. Most lodging provides an iron, if wrinkling is an issue.
8 Roll clothing and pack vertically. You can roll pants and a shirt together, skirt and a shirt, shorts and a shirt. Solid colors go together, better than patterns. Pick a main color and have your clothing all go together with that main color.
9 If you are asking yourself, “what if” – then don’t pack it. What if it rains, What if it snows, What if we go clubbing, What if………..
10 Put things together – put socks in shoes. Put undergarments in pockets.
12 Wear the bulky clothing and shoes on the plane. Boots and jeans take up space, so wear them to your destination.
Now go and enjoy!!!
An even full body tan with amazing skin is not a dream, it can be reality. A golden -brown tan can help you look slimmer. No self tanner can replace the serotonin and Vitamin D that mother nature provides. Starting out the season with some color is desirable.
Get your bathing suit out and let’s get tan. Here are 7 steps to keep in mind when tanning for the spring and summer seasons
1 SPF Sun Protection
Use protection anytime you are outside or even work inside with windows that allow sun to come in. SPF protection should be applied every two hours to any skin that is not covered.
Exfoliate your skin before applying self tanning. Get the dead skin off to help make your suntan even and natural looking.
After exfoliating apply a fragrance-oil free lotion or hydration product to your skin, especially the ankles, feet, knees and elbows. These areas are dryer than other parts of your skin and can cause uneven tanning.
4 Self Tanning
5 Scrub Your Hands
Exfoliate your hands after applying the self tanner, especially between fingers and over knuckles.
6 Go Outdoors
Apply SPF outdoors as usual with self tanners. Moisturize the skin and hydrate with water throughout the day. Protect your eyes with sunglasses and wearing a hat helps with sun on the face.
7 Shower and Moisturize
Shower after being outside and having applied SPF, getting the oils and dirt off your skin. Moisture your skin with a moisturizer after a shower.

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.” – Mark Twain
