 Some of Jenna’s key takeaways on finding your passions and bringing them in your professional work:

  • If you are finding a way to do what you love, you can find a way to get paid for it.
  • Try and find a way to bring your passions and your story into your work. This will help you build lasting connections and common ground, which is especially useful in business development
  • If you are looking for a way to become involved in an organization, look at your circle and find what calls to you or what you have a personal investment in. 
  • There are so many organizations out there, chances are you’ll be able to find one for what you are passionate about. If you can’t find one, start one.
