Strengths are the Secret to your Marketable Value

Sep 16, 2022 | Products

What comes easiest to you, is your highest value

I know your time is valuable. These show notes give you the gist of the episode, what is covered, any links or resources talked about in the show, and also gives you a few ways to listen or watch the episode

This episode’s topic, in a nutshell…

We discuss the challenge that many people struggle with, when they jump the employment ship: who am I (if I’m not doing ‘this’ job?); and what do I know that makes me valuable to others?

And to help me unpack this topic, I invited Alison O’Leary to join me. Ali is a Career Coach specialising in career change to facilitate life change. (You can find out more about her in my more detailed bio for her below).


In this episode we unpack:

  • How do you go about finding out what your strengths actually are?
  • Are there red flags to know about, when you are giving your value away?
  • How do you translate the ‘intangible’ into marketable value?

Also, hear how Alison approached starting her micro business

I asked Ali to share with us what advice she would give her younger self for when she first started her own micro business back in 2014. She gave us her top three bits of advice she would love to have given her earlier self to reduce the overwhelm of starting out.
