Do You Wish You Were Clairvoyant In Business? How Would You Use Those Skills?

by Yvonne Russell on November 21st, 2007


We’re having lots of fun with our Home Biz Myth Busted series.

Our Home Biz Myth submission from Heather Douglas touched on the perception others have about the expertise of home business owners.

Clarivoyants came to mind for some of Heather’s corporate audience participants, when asked about who they associate with working from home.

Just for fun
Hey, I think there could be something in this. Apart from our expertise, wouldn’t it be nice to actually have clairvoyant skills in home business?

How Could YOU Put Clairvoyant Skills To Good Use In Your Home Business?
If you had clairvoyant skills, how would you use them? Would you use your newly found skills to deal with the day to day or the long term future? Tell us about times you could have done with some clairvoyant skills in the past.

    If only I’d had clairvoyant skills when I made a king sized quilt for a customer. For some reason, the batting and fabric didn’t agree and little tufts of batting squeezed through the weave of the fabric after the customer had used and washed the quilt. So….I had to research the situation, find another type of batting, take the quilt apart and put in a new batt. Fortunately the customer was patient and understanding and didn’t demand her money back. I was out the cost of the new batt and my time. If I’d been clairvoyant, perhaps I would have seen what could happen and somehow avoided it. (However, then I wouldn’t have this story to tell!)

    Great story, Mary Emma. I think having those clairvoyant skills may have saved some angst in many a business.

    Still you learn as much from your mistakes as you do from your successes, so you can usually take something positive away from an experience.
