What do you excel at?

I often quote during my demonstrations Mr. Heinz (think ketchup) who said “To do a common thing, uncommonly well, creates success.”

While reading the bible I found this “Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will stand in the presences of kings. He will not stand in the presence of unknown men.”

Sounds pretty similar to me!

What do you do uncommonly well? What do you wish you were skilled at? What steps are you taking to reach those goals?

    I make custom coats, collars and accessories for dogs and custom horse blankets for a living. I am passionate about creating one of a kind products for people’s beloved pets.

    How do you define uncommonly well? I know more about horses than most of the people I know but much less than a few. What I believe I do very well is to make horses gentle, unafraid and obedient. However I sometimes take lessons from people who do it even better than I, like Stacy. I am uncommon to most of the people in my area but unknown to most of the world. This holds true for many of my activities. Most women I know would never attempt to build a woven wire fence or wire their own barn. (don’t worry I got an expert to check it over and hook it to the power).
