Back in March, I posted a question about finding a new career once I am done with my cancer treatments. At the time I was advised on checking out various websites and discovering my 'inner' opportunities and challenges. Well, it came to me today and now I realize what I would love to do.
Throughout this 'journey' (seriously..there HAS to be a better word!) I kept a blog that people responded well too. I've also talked to other cancer patients. While not everyone is comfortable talking about their challenges, they do seem to relate when it can be expressed for them...and on that note....!
I was wondering what it takes to be a motivational speaker? I feel that there is a need in the cancer community for a person to be able to address the issues that have and are currently facing patients. The brochures and websites just don't cover what is actually experienced. I also feel that each individual deals with their own particular situation in their own way, but express relief in knowing that someone out there 'gets' it and is not afraid to talk about it...in an often humorous way.
This is my dream. After a seemingly lifetime in retailing, and the various brainwashing techniques that are used to scrub any imagination or dreams out of you (lol), I have found mine....
NOW what do I do?
Seriously, I will accept any and all advice that is given (both positive and negative). This challenge for me would feed my inner soul and would let me use my experiences and others as well, to help people....which is ultimately what I want to do.
