Episode 1: What is The Passion Economy?

The economy has changed. We have to change with it. Are you ready?

Adam provides the background and ideas behind The Passion Economy.

The current global health crisis, for all its real pain, is forcing us to look at how things are done normally and imagine how they might be done differently. Passion businesses and passion careers often come out of times of crisis—when an old, familiar way, no longer works, and times of self-reflection when people have the time to think, wonder and experiment. It's driven by everyday people who figured out something at once simple and miraculous: how to create a business or a career built around their unique skills and passions in order to thrive during a time of chaos and uncertainty. 

Episode 2: From Cells to Sales

From drug kingpin to personal trainer, Coss Marte has used his knack for business to survive and even thrive in a series of oversaturated markets. Now he runs ConBody a fitness company built around prison style workouts.

Episode 3: Whatever Suits You

Kelley Moffat and her wife Laura found confidence and pride in clothing that fit the way they wanted. Now they share that feeling with the world through their gender non-binary clothing brand, Kirrin Finch.
