How I Found My Passion + Tips On Branding & Entrepreneurship

How I Found My Passion + Tips On Branding & Entrepreneurship
Pin It

About a year ago, I was contacted by a guy on twitter named Torrey McGraw (sounds like a country singer, right). At the time, he pitched an interview idea for me to talk in-depth about my company and how (and why) I created it. My gut thought was “who the hell would want to listen to me talk about business?” Also, I didn’t know Torrey from Adam. Could he be trying to get me on live video and do the okie-doke with some gag (this actually happened before…long story)??  But I trusted my gut and trusted Torrey, and did it.

12 months later, Torrey (who has now become a good friend and to my knowledge can’t sing a lick) tells me our interview was one of the most popular ever done on his Grind and Thrive site. Also, to keep it real, I’m very passionate about entrepreneurship (hell, I’m Jamaican, so I have to be). What this interview did for me was gave me the confidence to finally speak up about something other than romantic relationships.

I just gave the interview another listen and everything in it is applicable to today. If you’re searching for your passion, we talked about it! If you’re wanting tips on branding & building a business, it’s all in there! It’s also amazing to see me talk about ideas and dreams (a year ago) that are coming to fruition now (hmmm, laws of attraction).

I encourage you to grab a notepad and something good to drink like this…and check out this interview.

Very insightful, Paul is great and doesn't mind sharing his knowledge! Also learned another "P" Word is just as important as "Purpose"..... Passion, can't find or have one without the other.

I've been the female friend & I've been the woman who feels a friendship is inappropriate. If the friendship is kept a secret something is not right. I always say if he can't be on the phone with her around you or the three of you can't spend time together something isn't right. Can the girl reach out to you? Could the two of you go to lunch? I just had another thought. What if he is also keeping the wife a secret from the girlfriend? It happens. Its not always the woman that's the problem. Bottom line: adults in this situation need to behave like adults. I should clarify that age does not equate to adulthood. If the wife is uncomfortable the friends should back off. The female friend should always make the wife feel comfortable & behave the way she would want a her man to treat her. If the husband doesn't make the wife's feelings a priority the female friend should. Though I must note the female friend should always remember whose friend she was first and some counseling conversations should never be shared with the wife. Help them if you can. Never hurt them. Marriage is sacred. It is not easy to get into, stay in , or get of.

Fantastic interview! You're such an inspiration. But I can't help but point out that I feel like Red Stripe should start paying you for your endorsements :)

It's pretty amazing how the universe works. I've been having conversations about passion and marketing all week and my friend suggested I look at this site for a totally different reason. I'm glad I stumbled upon this video. It definitely lets me know that I'm on the right path
