Be more than just an entrepreneur. Find your talent & be successful with it
What is your special talent? Are you and your co-founder a good team? Are you unique?
Ever since I decided to start writing this blog, I’ve been seeing part of myself that I didn’t know was there before. First of all, I’ve discovered that I cannot only write, but that I can be useful and inspirational for my readers. The people around me can see that my new life really matters, and they are identifying with my stories.
A few days ago I met with my old friend, Constantino Garrido. He had been reading about my new project, StartMyDay.co, that helps reprogram the brain to be extremely effective in our lives with an impressively low amount of effort. We agreed to have a cup of coffee after several years without seeing each other. It was a such a great feeling to know that I was not alone in this effort to improve my life and the lives of others around me.
Constantino is doing an amazing job in finding people’s talents to improve their lives, and he has been doing it professionally for the last decade.
As entrepreneurs, when we (you, me and all of the craziest people who want to change the world) decide to embark on an entrepreneurial life, we just start off in a new direction without knowing exactly where the road will lead us. We start fighting battles, making mistakes, and very often we find ourselves trapped until we create something that really empowers us or improves the way we live our lives.
At this “Eureka” moment, we don’t tend to think. We just dedicate our full force to achieving our final goals any way we can. Over the years, despite the fact that this process is so difficult, we discover that we actually love it and that we don’t want to give it up for anything.
Almost 18 years ago, I embarked on an entrepreneurial life: a life dedicated to making things happen. In doing so, I developed inner strengths that have given me the energy and ability to overcome almost any obstacle.
Constantino introduced me to a part of me I had not yet discovered. He has developed a test to discover our talents from the very beginning. It is essential to know our strengths and weakness before starting off on any new venture. It is also very useful to know if our co-founders and/or teammates are aligned to us.
As Sun Tzu wrote in “The Art of War”,
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
If you currently share a common goal with others, it is more important than ever for you and your colleagues build a powerful team for success. You will need to know every possible detail about each teammate. To do so, I strongly recommend that you and your teammates take this test.
This is not something to confirm what you think you already know. This is tool to empower your skills and beliefs. You need to know WHO YOU ARE.
Being an entrepreneur means more than having APtitude. It’s having the right ATtitude.
Instructions for identifying your talents:
- You need to decide which test you want to do. Start with 5 strengths:
- After following the instructions, just register at:
- Follow the steps until you arrive at: Gallup STRENGTHS Center.

You will need 45 minutes to do this on your own. Please do it. These will be the best-spent 45 minutes you can ever imagine.
I’m not selling this product. I’m not getting any commission. I’m just advising you to spend this 9$ and get to know who you are now, before wasting any more time. Even if you are in the middle of your entrepreneurial life, take this test the test and recommend that your team do the same.
As Albert Einstein said,
“You have to learn the rules of the game. And
then you have to play better than anyone else.”
Please share your results in Linkedin in your “Skills” category. It will be very helpful for you and others that want to know you better.
