I reluctantly woke today morning from a fabulous dream – I was on stage experiencing the thrill of theatre acting after years. As a college student, nothing gave me greater pleasure than performing on stage. After graduating, however, life and parental decisions led me down a more sedate path – I pursued a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Law, and practiced at the Delhi High Court with a Senior Advocate. It was only after the birth of my son that I woke to the idea of chasing my passion instead of slaving away at a traditional desk job. I began blogging, which led to opportunities to write for newspapers and publications; and spurred me on to create video content for Instagram so I could begin acting again, albeit on a much smaller scale!
The idea of pursuing one’s passion to achieve professional success is certainly appealing, yet replete with many hurdles. Hence, when I heard that Adam Davidson, renowned Economist and Bestselling Author, is addressing an Indian audience for the first time ever in a Virtual Live setting, I jumped to reserve a spot for myself by registering for the event. Adam Davidson, in his path-breaking book, “The Passion Economy: New Rules for Thriving in the Twenty-First Century” explains the concept of an economy driven by passion, as opposed to one driven by scale. The book is based on extensive research of true life stories and various studies on the subject.

Davidson is an American journalist of business and economics issues for the National Public Radio in USA. He co-founded the NPR’s Planet Money podcast, and writes for the New York Times Magazine, the New Yorker and other prestigious publications. The principle he propounds in his book ‘The Passion Economy’ encourages freelancers and entrepreneurs, to scale their businesses exponentially and earn passive income. Further, it highlights how important it is for individuals to have the freedom to work at their own time and leisure, and from any place of their choice. Happy people are bound to be more productive and hence more successful.
Nanni Singh of ShowCase Events, along with Roshan Abbas, President of the Entertainment & Events Management Association of India and Dr. Annurag Batra, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of BusinessWorld and exchange4media group; will moderate this discussion with Davidson, which promises to be insightful and educational on many counts.
If you, like me, have made a business of your passion, you must attend this one-of-a-kind session on Thursday, January 28, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. IST too.
