Your Meaningful Work – Day 4: Audience


This is the last day of activities, before the creation of your meaningful work statement!

Day 4 of “Your Meaningful Work” will have you identify your Audience. This activity will have you address the population(s) you’d like to serve.  Instead of working with “everyone” and “all people,” you will need to narrow down your audience to a few specific group(s).  If you were starting a new business, one of the pieces to your business mode/plan would be for you to identify your target market – in other words, the population/customers you want to serve. So, for your meaningful work, the audience are the people/groups you’d like to help, spend time being around, could see yourself working with, or could see benefiting from what you have to offer/share.  Just like the “Interests” activity, you will choose between three (3) and five (5) items. Note: If there is an audience you’d like to serve but not listed, feel free to add them to your list.
