{Video} How to Find Your Passion and Make it Your Business

I reach back in time, 16 years earlier to the moment when this entire story begins.

 

It’s another sunny day in Los Angeles and I’m getting ready for work.

 

I work for the largest and most successful entertainment studio in the world.

 

Despite my 60-hour work weeks and sometimes including weekends, with all the stress, anxiety and burnout I try to remind myself constantly to be grateful that I even have a job. I graduated after September 11th, 2001 – a time when most companies were firing or at a hiring freeze. “Leslie you’re one of 25 out of a candidate pool of 2,500 so be grateful. You have bills to pay, student loans to pay, just get the work done.” And that’s my motivation to get me to my work everyday.

 

Little did I know that today would set the trajectory of my life.

 

Today we have a filmmaker meeting with the producer of one of the biggest movie franchises in the world.

This is a story I’ve never shared live until now and happens to be the first chapter of my upcoming book.

 

I briefly wrote about it on my blog Why I Chose to Leave the Entertainment Industry inspired by the #metoo movement. And for the record, no I wasn’t sexually assaulted in any way. But I did work in the industry at a time when fear and intimidation were prevalent. I don’t know what it’s like today but I do hope with the most recent outcry, people are more aware of what’s really happening in the workplace – and that it’s not just limited to the entertainment industry.

 

Excerpt from my book:

“Offices are not just where we go to earn money, but a place where we spend many of our waking hours. The energy of our work environment and its people can either stifle us or inspire us. How you feel at work has a powerful influence not just on how you perform, but also has a direct affect on your physical, mental and emotional well-being. The office is the perfect place to become aware of actions that are rooted in fear, and those rooted in love. After all, this is really what you’re there to learn.”

 

Even though my days in Hollywood were numbered, I can honestly say that I’m grateful for every experience and every encounter. I do believe it helped mould me into who I am today and set in motion a life I could have never imagined.

 

What was that exactly? Well you’ll need to read my upcoming book to find out. But for those of you that know my story you know that the journey has not been easy, from ex-corporate, to start-up co-founder, to moving abroad, becoming a young mother, to the loss of my best friend and then my father – to now a wellness advocate and entrepreneur living in sunny Barcelona with my French husband and two young children.

 

But through my deep and committed search for meaning I discovered my unique message and mission to be of the highest service in this world. I found my passion and made it a business.

 

So you may be asking, “How do I  find my passion and make it a business?”

 

Well, I think you might be surprised where I encourage you to look.

 

Last month on March 12th, in collaboration with Genius U and Barcelona Entrepreneur Social, I had the pleasure of being the speaker for their Barcelona launch event “From Passion to Business” at the lovely OneCoWork.

You’re responsible for your own happiness.

 

Excerpt from my book:

“As sovereign human beings, we can either play victim or we can claim that each of us—not some big-shot Hollywood producer—is the producer of our experience. You hold the power to create the life of your choice, independent of the lives that others have created or the life you’re “supposed” to be living as dictated by others.”

 

Do you feel like your soul is yearning for something more but you just don’t know what that is or what your next steps would be to get you there?
