"Baby Sleep Consultant"

This is the first time that I have ever heard of this term. But it also reminds me that that there is almost no limit to the kinds of skills that a person can have. A baby sleep consultant helps babies sleep more better, more comfortably and through the night. This is a welcomed benefit to new parents who have babies who cry throughout the night. And apparently this service is more popular than I thought!

This is but yet another example of one's skill(s). People have talents that they probably never thought of as such. I read somewhere that if you can't make a living doing what you love to do then you are doing it wrong!

You may have a skill and/or talent but you probably never thought of it as a skill or talent. There are still people that make furniture by hand even though we have furniture that is massed produced and these individual furniture makers are making enough of an income to live on and beyond! Let's say that you have a talent for making furniture and you want to be able to make a living doing that. It may be hard to believe but there are still a lot of people (and potential clients) that are out there who still buy furniture from independent furniture makers. The more popular your work gets the more "word of mouth" spreads and the more potential customers you will have.

But you can do even more! You could write a book about furniture making, you could create a newsletter about furniture making and you could even start a podcast about furniture-making. You could teach a class about furniture making too! There are a lot of possible income opportunities other than the most obvious.

You may not think that you have a skill or talent- but you probably do!
