Rank #5: HAA 002: How to Discover Your Passion and Purpose in Life with Keith L. Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Keith L Brown is the first guest on The Hair Artist Academy Podcast. Keith was my teacher and mentor in high school and had a major impact on my life.

I couldn’t think of a better person to be the first guest on my show. I wouldn’t have the drive, tenacity and perseverance today had it not been for his motivation and encouragement during some of the toughest years of my life . . . my teens.

Growing up I would consider myself socially inept. I didn’t have a ton of friends and pretty much stayed to myself. Keith helped me build my confidence and find my voice.

As my drama coach he taught me how to hold my head up high and command a presence when I walked on stage.

That stage is synonymous with life.

Each day we go out into the world, on our jobs or in the boardroom we are walking on stage.

We are being judged on our performance, talked about, criticized and scrutinized. Keith taught me to stare criticism in the face and stand in dignity and confidence because I am a queen and that’s what queens do.

From special ed student to teacher, speaker, and award winning author he continues to inspire the masses and I hope you gain some inspiration from this interview.

It’s not often that one gets to thank the teachers that positively influenced their life. I’m happy I had the opportunity to do so. Thank you Keith!

“Position yourself around people who celebrate you not those who tolerate you”

In this Episode:

- Keith talks about discovering your passion and purpose in life.
- How to get paid for doing what you love
- How to overcome the obstacles in life
- How to transition from a job you hate to one that is rewarding and fulfilling
- What is an inner itch?
- Your two great days in your life
- How to overcome limited beliefs about yourself
- The importance of eliminating negative people from your life
- What’s the 40 x 40 x 40 plan
- What to do when someone tells you “NO”
