Using Your Assets in a new way

Lately, I have found myself confused about what I want to do with my future.  I feel like I have many skills and options, but what should I do?  What do I want to do?  Is that how you feel?

    Since the downturn in the economy, I have been supplementing my design income by working @ Dillards Department store.  They have made me a specialist for Nygard clothing, which is designed by a Canadian designer.  It has 2 sides of the business, the basic crepe suiting, which is the bones of the wardrobe, and then the more design and fashion forward side.
    With my background in interior design, it is the same concept I have always used with my clients.  We have our basic bones in the room which should be well constructed and timeless.  Then, we add in the current trendy pieces to update and freshen a space.

    I find that I am loving 'outfitting' my new clients, helping them to put together a wardrobe that included basic everyday essentials, and then adding wonderful accessories such as belts, jewelry, scarves and that wonderful statement piece.

    Is there a way that you can use the skills you have acquired in one industry in a different way?
    Computer skills can be translated to many different industries.
    Teaching can be used in motivational speaking...who can't use a little motivation these days?
     If you can sell homes, you can probably sell anything else.
 Step back and think out of the box. What have you always loved to do.  Can you make money from your hobby?  No time like the present to try it.  What do you have to lose.

Did you know that Walt Disney went bankrupt several times before he came up with his wonderful empire?
The secret is, if the first idea doesn't work, try something else.  Just keep trying, and it'll happen.

    Whether you need help with your home or wardrobe, I would love to speak to you about it.
Just contact me @

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!   Donna
