Hey everyone,

I swear - it is not my intention to come across as if I am tooting my own horn here -

It is just that I am 48 (soon to be 49)years old - have been laid off 3 times and well basically, my former industry has all but dried up and all my life I have been told that I am: "Creative, wise, insightful, have great thoughts - and just -well, what really do you suppose I can do with all of this?

Write a book? A movie? Screenplay? Regular play? Give lectures - on what I have no idea....I dunno?

I like to help people and perhaps spare them years/decades of figuring out just general life stuff in which it took me so long to finally figure out - but is this really a talent? Something that is in demand?

I suppose I have to /need to DO something with this - just not sure what and/or how to go about it and how it could be the most useful.

Really at a lost. Would appreciate any and all constructive feedback. Thanks. tBt

Thanks TT, I'll have to chew on that one!

Motivational speaker - hmmmmm.

Just what the (western) world needs - you think - yet another motivational speaker?

(Maybe I COULD BE the motivational speaker that I always longed to hear from - but just never did.) Maybe?

Thanks again. I'll have to sleep on it and see what develops........

TBT,

I'd say write it out, and then copy right what you have to say (that's if it is in a book form) and then send it off to the larger publishing companies.... For real, if you have a talent - Don't waste it, GO FOR IT!

My feeling is that if you wait until next year, then you will be asking the same question again.. So why wait any longer.. If you want to be a motivational speaker, most of them start off by writing a book, and then they step in as a motivational speaker upon request because their books make it and become best sellers.

I've seen a name on this board many times now that I know personally, he's reconized all over the world, and he was just like you and I, and everyone else..Anyway, I recall him asking the same question as you about 23 years ago now! He wanted to know how to reach out to others, he felt he had a special talent as well, and he did, and still does. So 23 years ago now he wrote his first book, well it became a best seller and he has had many books out since. I may not agree with everything he says in his books and many others may not either, but they certainly sell and there's a lot of people that have benefited from his talent... SO I SAY GO FOR IT! Start typing and writing, and sent it out to every reconized publishing company you can find... but be sure to let us know if someone picks it up.. So we can say we knew you when... LOL For real though, I say do it, you have nothing to gain not doing it, and may have a lot to gain by doing it.

Healing and Peace

A lot of things don't work anymore that were 5 years ago, so don't be silly.

Thanks for your answer, I have only started to learn marketing. But I am gonna learn digital marketing like SMM and SEO. I only pioneer, so I explored different tools trying to find keywords of a website here, check traffic or other metrics with the rank checker to build a marketing strategy.

Hello! I know it`s hard to find your own way, but you don`t need to stop and try something which is close to your natural talents. For example, I`ver tried online marketing on https://www.fxbrokersreviews.c.....InstaForex and understood that it was what I was looking for. You can try it too, if you want, maybe it will be interesting for you.
