"I have read "Now Discover Your Strengths" Unfortunately for me it gave strengths that were unhelpful. Maybe someone could combine passions. There are some books fby Barbar Sher that could be useful Ultimately someone has to decide for…"

What do you want to speak about? and of course you should join the speakers GROUP here on 48days.net.
I want to personally extend an invitation to you to join the group I am the host for a group called "Making A DREAM" where we are discussing our dreams and what we are doing to make them happen!
Since you are interested in starting another business, I invite you to challenge yourself with a FREE 7 day eCourse on my website. I offer this free because I want to introduce people to a different way of planning a business, the Agile way.
A Vision with out a Goal is just a Dream
A Goal without a Plan Is just a Wish
I hope you will join me in not just setting GOALS but making Agile PLANS to meet them.
Just noticed you joined 48Days.net -- WELCOME! So glad you became a member. Sounds like you are a communicator and interested in speaking. If so, consider joining the Speak It Forward group (link below). There are some great discussions going on that will likely be very profitable for you.
