I can pretty much guarantee we’ve all heard the phrase, “Just do what your passionate about”. The problem there is, discovering what you are truly passionate about isn’t always black and white.

Below we list 3 ways to help you uncover what your true passion is and how to convert it into a paying income.
Strength Finder 2.0
This is an awesome system. Strength Finder is a set of multiple choice scenario questions that will highlight your top 5 strengths (out of 34 possiblilities).

You’ll be surprised how accurate this system is.

Take half an hour to an hour and go through each question answering as honestly as you can and the results will be startling.
