Ask these tough questions to test your passion and potential

Seth Godin posted these 8 questions this morning and as I thought about my answers, both personally and professionally, it reaffirmed my passion for helping others.  Honestly, helping people is what makes me happy .  I love the smile on a client’s face when I help them find the answer to a tough marketing problem or show them the next big thing to help them succeed online.  Really, who doesn’t appreciate some help?

8 questions and a why

  • Who are you trying to please?
  • What are you promising?
  • How much money are you trying to make?
  • How much freedom are you willing to trade for opportunity?
  • What are you trying to change?
  • What do you want people to say about you?
  • Which people?
  • Do we care about you?

(and after each answer, ask why?)

via Seth’s Blog: 8 questions and a why.

Take a minute to answer these questions for yourself and your business.  If they seem too rigid, come up with your own questions based on the 5W’s & H (Who, What, Where, When, Why & How).

Any new insights that might lead to action?  Any questions you would add to the list? What are your thoughts?
