Journeying to Your Entrepreneurial Passion

“If you want to begin the journey to discover your entrepreneurial passion
you, first, must analyze your own interests, strengths, weaknesses, and desires.
You must consider carefully how hard you want to work.
And, then, you must
research in a serious way
the job or field in which you believe you might want to work.”

Passion & Purpose Aligned

“I have learned that it is very possible to pursue different passions
but it is also very complicated to try and do them at one time.
I think strategic planning, time management, and focus are vital to multi-tasking.
Ultimately though, ask yourself, “What is my purpose for this life,”
and then make sure your passion and purpose align.”

A Jackie/Jack of All Trades

~ Egypt Sherrod,
Multi-media Personality, Author, Real Estate Expert and Philanthropist.
