Personal Inventory Exercise (PDF)

All small business owners need to wear different hats. It’s not enough to just be good at what you do to be successful (though that is a huge part of it!). A variety of other skills and personal assets are needed. If you can maximize your strengths and undertake whatever is necessary to address your weaknesses, then you will increase your chances of success over time. Becoming self-aware is the first step, so I invite you to view yourself through this critical lens. After completing the inventory, engage in a guided consideration of the following:

  1. What skills, personal strengths, habits, assets and motivations should you seek to maximize as you develop your business?
  2. What are your top three biggest liabilities?
  3. What capacities might you need to acquire or enhance? What new skills might you need to learn to overcome any limitations?
