How Passion Manifests in Unexpected Ways... In this short and sweet solo episode I talk about a recent ah-ha moment and ask you a thought provoking question about how your own knitting passion drives your life and what it would be like without it. Personally, I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for my passion for knitting. Looking back at the stepping stones is amazing-- first as a budding a designer, then embarking on an illustration freelance career, to becoming the Executive Editor of Creative Knitting Magazine and Host of Power Purls Podcast. This passion has also helped me pay forward my nearly 15 years in the industry through business coaching for creative entrepreneurs. Question: How has your passion for knitting manifested in ways that supports your life personally and professionally? How different do you think your life would be without knitting?
