How do YOU find YOUR passion?

Posted on 22 Jun 2011

That was the question we set out to answer last night at the Red Network event on Finding Your Passion (and making it pay) at London's Hospital Club.

For the first time, instead of asking the questions, I was answering them, along with my fellow panelists, supermodel-turned-baker Lorraine Pascale (aka the new Jamie Oliver, but way better looking) and magazine fashion editor turned internet retailer, founder of style-passport.com, Sarah Walter.

The Red readers who were lucky enough to get tickets heard down-to-earth insider advice on how to harness an idea, get on the first rung of the ladder in your chosen field (be it catering, retailing or novel-writing) and how to take the leap and start your own business. As well as how to (try and) do it when you're juggling a full-time job and/or kids. Champagne was drunk, canapes were scoffed and everyone went away with a Red goodie bag including the July issue of Red and a copy of To My Best Friends.

You can see highlights of the evening and get on the waiting list for the next event at Redonline.
