The first step to finding your true purpose is discovering what you truly love doing. Self-examination can show what you like to do, love to do and cannot do without. For instance, someone who enjoys writing poetry may write for personal expression and stop there. Another person may live and breathe poetry. This person publishes as a professional poet, teaches poetry at the local college or university and performs poetry readings around town.

One such person is the highly successful housewife who created products for cleaning and organizing her home, Joy Mangano (subject of the award-winning movie Joy, based on her life.)

Joy’s Ingenious Designs, LLC is now a multimillion dollar business.
