3 Point Solution to Finding Your Community Niche

Presented by Sach Oliver, Bailey & Oliver Law Firm

This simple process of realizing your passions, talents, and our community needs will find your niche in the community.


When is the last time you conducted a self-analysis on what you are most passio.nate about? Our passions are what motivate us to achieve excellence and help others.


What is your awesomeness? In order to serve our community we must embrace our best talents, hone those skills, and use our talents to serve others. In the process, we must know our weaknesses. Focused giving of our best talents will lead to long term giving and better results for the beneficiary. 

Community Needs:

Where are the true community needs? If we are focusing our resources in an area in the community where there is not a true need, then we will find ourselves frustrated, without purpose, and using passions and talents where it is not needed the most. On the other hand, if our passions and talents are focused on a true need, everyone benefits over and over.
