Everyone has a special talent or gift. Do you know what yours is? What is something you can do really well? What if you knew how to find your talent and make money online by using that talent to help others?
Who wouldn’t want to do that? Find a way to financially support by doing something you love? That’s every person’s dream – at least every one I have ever come across.
It’s one thing for you to THINK you’re good at something, but another thing entirely if others also think you’re good at something.
What a horrible mistake it would be for me to spend so much time to write about something I THINK I’m good at, but am actually horrible at doing! How could I possibly be helping anyone? Right – I couldn’t. I would be wasting my time and yours. If you are a busy mom, you are looking for ways to give you more time and make your life simpler. Wasting what little time you have is just simply not on the schedule.
So then how do you figure out what you do well? How do you find your talent? I have that answer for you.
I’ve come up with a great visual tool and easy acronym to help you piece together the puzzle all by yourself. Added bonus? It will give you an accurate picture if you complete it honestly. Yes, you must be honest with yourself or you will not receive accurate results. Shocker!
Without further ado…

For example, if you love to organize, but your house is a total mess, then maybe you aren’t good at organizing in practice. Work hard at it, get your house in shape and document how you did it. What worked and what didn’t?
Or – on the flip side – maybe you are an organizational queen. You love to organize, you have figured out a simple system to even Color Code Your Life and have had others asking you for your help and to share your strategies. Yep – you have definitely identified your gift!By helping others, you can help yourself. Give to give and your results will be amazing. Click To Tweet
Now that you’ve been successful at organizing your house – share how you accomplished that. Do you have a specific method you used and have achieved amazing results? Could that same method be used by other people? If your answer is yes, then you have something valuable. Maximize it. Let’s figure out how to market it and share it with the world.
If you’re looking for a great way to start your own blog to market your products or share your gift with the world, I loved Suzi Whitford’s Blog By Number Course. You can check it out here. Talk about gifts and helping others, SUzi has that art perfected!
By helping others, you can help yourself. Give to give and your results will be amazing. Give to receive and you will fail.
I have come up with a simple 7-step method to help you find your talent and share it with others:
the PINCH ME method!
POLL your family and friends – Brainstorm for yourself and make a list of responses.
IDENTIFY your gift / talent – Make a list of responses from those you polled / make another list of what you think your talents are / circle the ones that are in both columns / of the circled items, choose 3 that you LOVE to do – remember, to be a true gift/talent, you must be really good at it, and also have a passion for it.
NETWORK AND SHARE your ideas with others. Is there a need for your talent? Of course there is! Take for example, Home & Family Organization. I have created an amazing system called Color Code Your Life and have tested it out in my own home – and it works! I have people always telling me how organized I am and how I seem to always have it all together. They ask how I do it – so I know my talent is something that is needed.

CREATE YOUR PRODUCT OR SERVICE: an e-book, course, or service and market your talent!
HELP OTHERS – Determine who your product will help find a way to provide value and give them something for free that will solve their problem and show them your product is a “Must-Have” and will solve their problem for good. Keep it simple and always approach this with the mindset of HELPING others, not trying to sell your product nor being pushy. Otherwise, they will see right through you and will not be interested in what you have to offer – even if it WILL solve their problem!
MARKET YOUR PRODUCT OR SERVICE ONLINE via social media & email marketing. Create a launch schedule and promote, promote, promote! Helpful tip: provide a freebie to show the value of your product. This will get people excited and ready to have you help them! Promote value and make the purchase a “No-Brainer”. Make sure the value is exponentially higher than the price you are asking. Keep in mind – this is NOT about selling; it is about providing a SOLUTION to your readers. Keep this in mind as you market and you will succeed.
There are a plethora of great strategies to help you market your product ans services. I personally loved McKinzie’s (from Moms Make Sense) Traffic Trajectory course. It made a huge difference in my marketing strategies and opened me up to some ideas I had never even thought about – and they help hugely. If you’re in need of marketing help, McKinzie’s e-book is the way to go for sure. You can find it here.
EARN MONEY by providing solutions to your clients/readers. Remember, if you really have a valuable gift upon which you created your product/service, you will not be ‘selling’ at all. You will be providing solutions and your readers will jump at the chance to pay for them just to solve their problems. You can make this an evergreen product, or create more urgency by offering it for a limited time only. It’s up to you.
So again, the PINCH ME method to help you find and market your talent so you can help other people is:
P = Poll
I = Identify
N = Network
C = Create (your product or service)
H = Help Others
M = Market (your product online)
E = Earn
It’s just that easy! However, if you’re a visual person like me, and love worksheets and printables, I have a fabulous PINCH Method worksheet in the free printables library!
