Ask an Expert – June 2021 – Using the Sense of Smell to Develop an Exciting Career

Donna Jodhan, a woman with short dark hair and glasses, sits at a table with a laptop in front of her.

Before you say no or turn thumbs down on these suggestions; consider these thoughts.

You can definitely increase your revenue and reduce both your internal and external costs and here’s how.

Take it from me! I have been an accessibility awareness consultant and advisor since 1998 and I continue to help companies to increase their revenues, reduce their costs, and reach hidden consumer markets!

Now as a sight-loss coach I am helping consumers with sight loss to become more aware of their environment and their requirements and this is helping companies to have a better understanding of how they need to plan and execute their initiatives.

I have a suggestion for a career that could be very beneficial and rewarding as a think outside the box one; especially so during these covid times.

I personally think that this could be an exciting path for many to explore. Especially so for a person who is vision impaired.

Whether it is a myth or not; a vision impaired person probably has a sizable edge when it comes to being able to use their sense of smell to help them find, recover, and discover. So why not put the sense of smell to work in a very different way.

What kinds of suggestions could be entertained?

  • To develop fragrances; perfumes, body scents, body powders, anything in this area for both men and women.
  • To help develop different types of baking goods.
  • To help develop fresh scented cleaning products, laundry detergents, and dish detergents.
  • To evaluate baking and cooking smells.
  • To develop and evaluate fragrances to be used for shampoos, deodorants and more.

I think that the sky could be the limit here and these are not the only areas where the sense of smell could be used.
I hope that these tips will help to generate some positive action.
