About Passion Stories

“Don't be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.”

- Rumi

Passion Stories celebrates every day heroes, those who have left their traditional jobs to live their passions. We learn about how they found their passions, they honed their skills, transitioned, how they deal with fear, failure, how they nurture self-love and care, what inspires them, how they get support and finally what advice they want to give our audience. 

About THE PASSION CO. 

THE PASSION CO. was founded on the belief that we all deserve to be doing what we love. Our mission is to connect, empower and inspire more women and men to live their passions. Attend our classes and events to be part of a transformative and tight community and start your next Passion Project.
