Take The Business SUPERpower Quiz

Whats Your Business SuperPowerIt is awesome owning a business. If it wasn’t we wouldn’t keep doing it. One part of owning a business is that it comes with so many different hats, sometimes too many.

Do you ever notice how you are good at wearing some hats verses others? Some hats feel really great to wear, and some hats you want to burn and never wear again? You probably have some hats that are your “SUPERpowers” that you have taken for granted, or need to concentrate on and, maybe delegate the other hats or powers to someone else. Others have probably recognized your “Superpowers”, and asked you for help in those areas because of what they have heard or seen you do.

Find Your Business SUPERpower Right Now

First, SUPERhuman strength.
No you can’t pick up a truck like Superman, but nothing seems to be able to slow you down in life or business. Your associates see you always coming out on top of any situation you happen to be in for business. If you are sick, you are still on top. If you are down, you ignore it and you stay on top. Even though you are constantly moving, you never seem to be too busy.

Second, SUPERsonic talking.
You can sell ice to Eskimos or wood to a forest. You love helping people find the items they need to succeed. Sales is not for everyone, but you are always salesman of the day. For those that can’t sell as well, you are looked to for help and advice, and even the occasional referral. You sell because you love it and you are really good at it.

Third, SUPERsonic leadership.
Not everyone can walk into a room and organize it into something that works together like a well-oiled machine. Every group needs a leader and you are looked to for that leadership. For a fundraiser, they call you. For a networking event, they call you. For a holiday celebration, you are on their speed dial. Not everyone can create a successful event out of thin air, but you can.

And fourth, SUPERsonic designer.
Your blood runs with indigo ink. You are constantly designing. Fonts are your hobby. Whether it is print or web, a business card or social media, you have just the right design for just the right channel. You wield a pen or pencil as if it is a wand. You are everyone’s artistic Harry Potter, slaying bad design where it begins.
