The brand Always recently launched a program to give girls opportunities to pursue their passions. They believe women are stronger when they work together. Makes sense…right? Often times women may be fearful of their passions…..fear of not having the means to get started, the education behind them, the support and even fear of failure. If we are encouraged by others along the way, we are more likely to go towards those dreams. For those who have already succeeded, it means reaching out to those who haven’t been giving the same opportunities as you….maybe due to location, finances or simply just from their fear.
To help kick-off the program,Author and Life Coach, Radio and TV Personality María Marín promoted the program via a variety of outlets. I was able to interview María and was immediately inspired by her encouraging nature. She shared tips on how we could incorporate our passions in our daily life and provided more details on this phenomenal program.
One of my favorite things María said was “ask yourself….what is it that you like to do. Whenever you feel like you are attracted to something, it means there is a talent in yourself that could be used in that area. If you like to write, there is a reason you like to write. Maybe you are supposed to be an author!”
She’s right. When you have interest in an area….it usually means you have talent in that area. I love to promote individuals and businesses. I love to help shape them and see them succeed. I previously worked as a talent agent and now I use those skills in marketing/pr and nonprofit. I love to help others grow their career….their dreams….their passions……whether they are a singer or a small business owner…..I want to see them succeed. This is my passion and this is my talent.
Check out the interview here. It’s certainly one you shouldn’t miss.
