On this Knowing Your Business radio show we’ll hear the stories that made our guests into the business experts they are today. Was it a chosen career path? Following their passion maybe? Or was it something else?
The theory that following your passion leads to success first surfaced in the ’70s, and in the intervening decades it’s taken on the character of indisputable fact. The catch? Most people’s passions have little connection to work or education, meaning some people have run into problems. Others have fallen into a career they love but couldn’t of imagined planning.
We interview guests Nigel French, Kieran Hearty, and Meg Heyworth
Presenter Iain Nicholson asks the questions.
