Can Minecraft Be Turned Into a Talent?

Can a gaming hobby, such as Minecraft, be turned into a real long-term talent? Yes, it can be! But you must re-cast the interest in a way that focuses on bringing value to others. When you switch from doing a skill for just your own enjoyment, to doing a skill so that it brings real value to other people, you transform the hobby into a talent.

I discuss with my wife Renne about how we have been successfully able to turn one of our children's talent into a potential for real long term talent. 

At the end of this episode, we finish with this call-to-action:

Go listen to the interview by Wardee Harmon of Traditional Cooking School. This interview is a discussion on how you can gradually turn a traditional skill, such as backyard gardening, into a long term market valuable skill for your young person.

How to Use Social Media to Advance Talent

How do you manage your young person's social media presence on the Internet so that it helps on his journey to developing amazing talent? 

I discuss with Renee how we have been successfully able to handle and encourage the use of social media for own children's talent development.

At the end of this episode, we finish with this call-to-action:

Find two types of social media or Internet forums that would could be a good fit to the type of interest or talent that your child is wanting to develop.

 Use Instagram for Building Talent Community

How do you use an Instagram account so that your talent focused young person can connect with other talented young people? There is an easy straight-forward way to do it and we tell you how to approach with the right mindset. It's the smart way to use your smart phone.

My wife and I discuss two recent Instagram examples that helped our two oldest boys to a community of very talented people.

At the end of this episode, we finish with this call-to-action:

Create an Instagram account to search for ideas on how the world of your child's talent could be showcased so that other talented people will want to connect with your son or daughter.

Why Parents Overlook Hidden Assets

Why do parents overlook hidden assets in their family life that would make all the difference to their child's future and talent development?

I discuss this common blindspot with my wife Renee. We propose several reasons why as parents we often fall back on choosing the average or common opportunity rather than taking advantage of what is already excellent in our family connections and relationships.

At the end of this episode, we finish with this call-to-action:

Make contact with one person you know or one event in your area that is directly related to an aspect of your son or daughter's talent. Use that time connecting directly with an active participant in that world of interest to replace some of the time spent studying it simply through a textbook.
