Metier (noun)
[meteeay]

“Even though many people know this word, it’s not really in common usage. I was inspired to include it when I was watching The Crown on Netflix recently. Winston Churchill was speaking to the artist painting his portrait. The artist admits that he came to painting quite late in life after Churchill says: ‘In your search for your metier, you’ve tried a bit of everything.’ Metier means a trade or profession or some kind of skill you’re proficient in.”
