Four recent college graduates have started a website called Pursue the Passion and are on a three-month tour across the U.S., interviewing people about their career passions. The Home page starts out with:
“Half the American work force is not satisfied with their job, and only a fifth apply a passion towards their career. As this trend trickles to students entering the working world, people continue to pursue a path that leads them further from their true dreams.
Pursue the Passion addresses this issue by interviewing people who are propelled by a love for their work. From these interviews, our mission is to assist aspiring individuals to find work they can be passionate about by producing resources that help direct and guide their pursuit.”
There is a far higher percentage of passion-pursuers in the world of business owners than in the employee community, even at the highest levels of management. This is what keeps entrepreneurs going in those early years when we worry whether what we’re building is going to survive.
The Tour was through my area in July and I missed it. But you don’t have to be there. You can follow the tour online.
