Even when I’m in my “Jamaican in China & Beyond” superhero persona, my “Passion Prophet” alter-ego is often called into action: During a stroll through Old Taipa, Macau, my friend Ron and I stopped into one of his favorite frozen treat spots, a café called Céleste Artisan 943. We met Hailey Wong, passionpreneur & one of the owners of the café and started a cordial “nice-to-meet you” chat. Hailey must have uttered the magic words that coaxed the passion genie out of the bottle, and our chat turned to things passion- and purpose-related.
As described on the Taipa Village Macau site:
Tranquilly located in a cozy alley in Taipa Village, Céleste Artisan 943 appears like a normal café but is actually a vibrant and artistic space for relaxation and mind restoration. It is composed of three zones, served with different functions but embody the same craftsman’s spirit. As its name implies, “Céleste” derives from a Latin word which means “Heavenly” or “Paradise,” indicating that the space is a relaxing realm for everyone to unwind with the touch of “Art of Living.”
So, while I wasn’t in the “Passion Prophet” alter-ego at the time, this casual (but pre-ordained, universally-perfect) introduction and conversation–with Hailey and I sharing photographer duties–
became a 30+-minute convo-cum-coaching session in which we talked about:
• gaining clarity about one’s purpose on the planet
• How Céleste Artisan 943 might fulfill her purpose
• The obvious, tailor-made, soul-chosen, purpose-specific challenge to be overcome on the way to that goal
As I do in my PassionProfit™ coaching, workshops, books and on the @therealPassionpreneur Youtube channel, we don’t dwell merely on the surface of things, we take deep, introspective dives into the personality, purpose, passion and person behind the products!
Hailey has done some life coaching in the past, but as is so often the case, even the most gifted “Saviors” (see the Creator/Savior/Guru/Guide purpose foursome in Turn Your Passion Into Profit) among us–those who can see and heal others’ issues–sometimes need an objective outsider to point our eyes toward the obvious-overlooked. For even a doctor sometimes needs a doctor. Keep your tissues nearby in the later episodes: Meanwhile, here is part 1:
