It might be difficult to come up with a description about yourself, without letting your own judgments get in the way. Ask your friends/piers to describe you. Ask them, what they believe your strengths are, what are some unique qualities you have, and how someone would best describe you in a few words. Be sure to ask these questions to someone who is loyal, and who will give you a 100% honest answer, even if you might not like the outcome. Sometimes, unexpected answers provide building blocks to create a better business model, and most importantly, a better you.
