My Story of Finding Passion & Purpose
If you have ever felt a little lost in work or life, and you’re unsure of how where the passion and purpose has gone, then I'm here to say you are not alone. I was in this exact position.

Laura Zellmer was diagnosed with Cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening illness that affects the lungs and pancreas, when she was just 16 months old. Despite a staggering 80% infant mortality rate at the time, Laura defied the odds and survived.
Today, Laura is 43 years old and in her continued battle she received a double lung transplant last year. Laura’s story has been a source of inspiration during my own health struggles and her determination to live life to the fullest is a lesson for us all.
Matt Hanover is an artist, an entrepreneur, and Children’s Museum curator. But these were not always titles that Matt embraced. It took, what he thought was, a heart-attack in 2012 for him to realize that his passions aren’t something to be put-off and that he needed to make a big change in his life. Today we dive into his transition and it all hinges around the word 'wonder'.
Matt's story can be a lesson to us all in the importance of following our heart to pursue what will truly make us happy.
Taking Life As It Comes
Kerry David lives for taking life as it comes & uncovering new passions in the most unexpected places.
Followed her heart has taken her in many many different directions. From traveling the world and working with women on the front line of the war on poaching, to working with Tom Cruise and producing movies that have grossed over $100M at the box office.
Kerry is a great example of someone who doesn't live by a carefully laid out plan. The only rule she has is to never take no for an answer.
