How many times a day do you wonder, “Is this really the path for me?” Maybe it’s time to get a little more curious about your purpose in life and reframe the question to: “How do I want to show up in life?” If you’re ready to uncover your inner passion and surround yourself with like-minded, mindful, inspirational and driven individuals, The Passion Summit is for you. This two-day summit in Chicago, May 6-7, 2019 will help ignite your passion.
College Magazine partnered with The Passion Summit to give away a free ticket plus flight and hotel to one lucky student.
Carey Smolensky, creator of The Passion Summit, entrepreneur and author of Living Life with Passion and Helping Others, is proof that what you study in college does not dictate your future. He graduated with a degree in biology on the path to become a dentist, but then realized that his side hustle—and true passion—of DJing and event production could build a more meaningful life for him. Fast-forward to today, Smolensky started a family of companies including Carey Smolensky Productions, STORM Interactive Entertainment, CSP Worldwide Event Management and Mobile Music Interactive Entertainment.
The Passion Summit will feature speakers, like Smolensky, who followed their passion, and perseverated through life’s challenges.
Take bodybuilder and internet sensation Nick Santonastasso. Santonastasso was born with Hanhart Syndrome, a genetic disorder that results in missing digits and/or malformed arms and legs. When he started wrestling in high school, he found purpose in his life and realized he could achieve anything, including physical greatness. Santonastasso even placed in his first bodybuilding competition, “Iron Bay Classic.”
Cathy Christen, a holistic peak performance strategist, channels her passion into many different roles, including speaker, author, direct sales trainer, and life and business strategist. She mentors 35 entrepreneurs annually and founded Elevated YOU, a coaching and consulting company that takes people’s lives and businesses to the next level.
These speakers at The Passion Summit, and so many more, will help you take charge of your life, and shift your mindset, turning problems into challenges you’re prepared to tackle.
Oh, and did we forget to mention Amanda Nachman will be there? Amanda Nachman, Founder and Publisher of College Magazine, will speak about how passion was the driving force behind creating a magazine on her campus at University of Maryland, to push past all the doubt and “nos” along the way to now reaching millions of student readers nationwide.
