During some recent morning runs, I’ve been listening to a series of Michael Michalowicz books: The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur, Profit First, Clockwork, and Fix This Next. He also wrote The Pumpkin Plan – one of my all-time favorite business books.

In the Toilet Paper Entrepreneur book, there are some questions about identifying your strengths and leveraging them in business. I think I know mine pretty well by now, but this stirred up my curiosity about how my blog readers and customers see my strengths and which particular strengths are most relevant for them. I also got to wondering how I could better use my strengths to make a difference for people.

So I thought I’d use today’s blog post to ask a few simple questions directly and invite you to reply via my contact form.

From your perspective…

  • What are my strengths?
  • Which strengths of mine are most important to you (in terms of serving you well)?
  • How do you feel I could (or wish I would) use my strengths to serve you better?

These questions are intended for people who’ve been engaging with my work long enough to form opinions about this.

That’s it! I’ll personally read every response and reflect on what I learn from this. It would be great if I this spawns some actionable ideas too.

Update: Here’s the follow-up post with the results: My Strengths (Based on Reader Feedback)
