We had the good fortune of connecting with Brittany Passion and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brittany, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Personally, I think it is necessary to take risk, especially in the area of following your dreams and/or starting a business. It teaches us the power of faith, resilience and how to enjoy the process of it all. I’ve always been the type of person to challenge myself because to me, you can’t be successful sitting on your a** or playing it safe. I’ve taken plenty of risk in my life/career and still take them daily. The biggest risk I’ve endured was quitting my career as a case manager of 6 years to move to Atlanta to pursue all of my dreams full time.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a true artist and creative at heart. I genuinely love everything about the arts and I am a firm believer in perfecting your craft. I am an actress, model, CEO, talent scout, radio personality and brand ambassador. I believe that my passion, strong work ethic, and ability to connect with just about anyone I meet are a few things that set me apart. I am most excited about my growth and to see where God takes me in my career within the next year because God has already blessed me so much already. Honestly, nothing worth truly having especially on a professional level is easy. You have to want it and fight for it everyday. It is all about grit, will, sacrifice and hard work. I’ve been through so much from feeling lost, anxiety and depression, lost loved ones, lost friends, abuse, failed relationships, lack of support, health issues, climbing out of rock bottom and more. But through it all, through all of the tears and fears I never lost my faith because I knew that no matter what, there was still a light at the end of the tunnel . In order for me to overcome these challenges I had to stay positive, learn the process of meditation, importance of self care, writing my thoughts, feelings and goals. I’ve also learned to ask for help when needed and that “Without struggle, there is no progress”. I want everyone to know that you will be okay and you will make it and during hard times, it is okay to not be okay, just don’t give up faith. Let your passion drive your purpose and it will all work out.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Atlanta is definitely “Black Hollywood”. The city is full of culture, fun, food, entertainment etc.If I finally get a week off, and had a friend visiting, I would do something different each day that caters to all sides of me. Lol. I would definitely attend an industry networking event, IWI fresh massage spa, Cirque, Trap Music Museum, Georgia Aquarium, Thumbs Up Diner, Busy Bee Cafe, Sweet Auburn Seafood,Ubar,Little 5 points, Ponce city market, Peters street and just drive around the city at night. There is so much I still need to do and places I need to visit though. I just be so busy grinding.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
