Often we overlook our potentially valuable skills because we don’t know we have them. We don’t realize that the thing we find easy, others find hard. Or the activity we do as a hobby has a high market value.

Finding out what you are good at and you can create value doing isn’t easy. It is a process that takes time and feedback. But the most common ways we expect to learn about ourselves are removed from real sources of feedback.

To find out what we do best we need to get out into the market and start getting feedback.

In this weeks episode, Isaac shares a story about a Canadian bagpiper who didn’t realize he had developed an incredibly valuable skill while pursuing his hobby.

In this episode:
- A Canadian bagpiper who stumbled onto a big business.
- Tacit knowledge
- Practice, practice, theory
