We're the community of women
that are making our own paths.
Many of us are looking to make a change in our lives - whether that's finding a more fulfilling career, getting back to work after a career break, finding more meaningful ways to spend our spare time, creating new friendships, getting healthier.....you name it, we are trying to be the best we can be.
Thing is, finding a way to start change and create a new path can often be challenging.
Passion Collective wants to be a catalyst for women to change their lives. When women support other women, magic happens, so we're building a trusted community for women to share ideas, support and knowledge.
Why I started Passion Collective
Hi, I'm Laura Best.
I started Passion Collective because I had just taken "the leap" in quitting my big agency gig and starting my own business. As a working mum with a successful career in digital consulting, I had realized that I wanted more, but that my definition of "more" was changing.
While (trying to) figure out my stuff, I realized how much work I had to do. This wasn't just a job change, this was a life change.
Thing is, I didn't want to go to another networking event (name badges are the devil). I didn't want to attend another "I should really go .." conference. I didn't have the time or money to try out expensive new hobbies even though I craved more fun stuff to occupy my brain. I already have a gym. I was reading the books, doing the mantras, being inspired, writing the journal, signing up for the online class. Something was missing.
That something was other women and the energy we give each other when we share ideas, encouragement and have each others backs. Where we quite simply just GET each other's barriers because we've been there and got multiple t-shirts. Where you learn about cool new stuff women are just DOING, fearlessly and with joy. Where you feel comfortable sharing your opinion. Where we drink wine, create friendships, go to new places, try different things.
I realized that I didn't know where to find this place. So, I set out to create it.
Since our launch in 2015, I've seen women light up in meeting each other, have the guts to show up at a random event at a new place with strangers - solo, glow with the excitement of explaining their "thing", listen intently when another is explaining the shit she's been through to get where she is. I've been told of generous offers of emotional support being giving privately to other members, of business relationships created, and most of all, of a feeling of belonging to a community of women.
YES. This is it!
We're only just beginning.....join us for the journey.....
Connect at an event
Connecting with other strong, inspired, successful women can be vital to building your energy and helping you rediscover your voice. The problem is finding the time to do it.
The Passion Collective creates a variety of ways to connect, whether it's a happy hour or "Buzz Session" that will give you practical guidance on making change happen.
We know some amazing women who have already made big changes in their lives. Their Passion Stories prove it isn't all glamor, but that the hard work can certainly be worth it.
Get inspired here.
Helping others can help you rediscover not only your strengths, but your spirit too.
