2014 PMI SWOC Symposium

This coming Friday, April 11th, my PMI chapter (PMI Southwestern Ontario) will be holding its 11th annual symposium. I’m very excited to attend (and present!) at this event, and also meet Patrick Snow, my guest on the podcast today, in person.

The theme for this year’s symposium is very intriguing: “Empowerment + Inspiration = Business Success – The formula for energizing projects to optimize results.”

I would love an opportunity to meet you as well if you can make it!  If you’re not familiar with London, Ontario, it is located a mere 2-drive from Toronto, Detroit, or Buffalo, NY. Patrick Snow will be of the keynote speakers at the 2014 PMI Southwestern Ontario Symposium.

I will also be presenting one of the breakout sessions, which is titled “Leverage the Internet to Empower Your Career, Image, and Reputation.”

Come out to London to meet me and Patrick Snow!

  • Nice interview.  I always have believed in passion.  Yet, I have seen many persons fail because they focus on… passion.  Why?  Because it is easy to live your passion like a hobby, and forget to earn money from it.  These are two different things.  And it is very easy to just focus on passion, and earn nothing (or not much).  So yes, I like to encourage people to live their passion.  Yet, most of the time, it will work only if they can tell me how they will earn an income out of it.  Otherwise, it is better to manage it like a hobby.

    It is cute to say follow your heart.  Yet, you need a method to also succeed financially with your passion.

    So my question to Patrick is this: how do you encourage others to live  their passion AND also earn a living from it.

    As I said, don’t assume the second part will come automatically with the first one. 😉
