Unearthing Passion: Stop Looking for Something You Already Have

Wednesday, March 31 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm • Organized By The Hatchery
Online Event


If not careful, entrepreneurs will spend all their time learning what they think they don’t know or spend time on multiple projects and completing none.

But what if, what we need we already have?

Business is one of the most vulnerable and exposing endeavors we can choose. It’ll grow you up real quick if you let it.

This workshop will give you tools to unearth your passion and tap back into who you are. You’ll get shovels full of advice to begin or continue digging up those gems that have been buried. So if you’re in need of personal resurrection - and who isn’t - this will be time well spent for you!


To get a feel for the power behind Charity, read an exert from her book, Get Up!

”Maybe you’ve been on a journey of looking for yourself, your passion, or your calling. What if you already have what you’re looking for? It is easy to “play opossum” and lay low instead of shining your light and truly being seen by others. In this session, we’re going to tap back in! When we say yes to what we already know to be true inside of us, then we can never go back to not knowing. The onus becomes on us. The responsibility and accountability to do something with our gift, passion, purpose or call becomes apparent to us, yet frankly, it’s easier to continue hiding it from others. We hide in graves that we dig for ourselves. When you feel purposeless or directionless, you’ve encountered a grave situation.”
