Episode 113 – Andrea Bell of Trend Prive

Why? Why do you do the things you do? What drives your business, career and entrepreneurial choices? How do you decide to take this job or that, start this business or that, chase one idea or another?

The concept of a career has changed, morphed and shifted over the years, but for the most part it’s been all about a progression of jobs in a similar field, linking together common skills and growing them over time, and moving up the hierarchy of your industry.

An idea we’ve been floating on the You Can Do That Here podcast a number of times is a different way of looking at what a career truly is. Perhaps more so rather than a progression of jobs, a career is instead the motivation or the reason why we choose to do what we do.

Perhaps we choose jobs for security, perhaps we choose it to solve particularly problems, or achieve certain goals. Almost every entrepreneur will tell you they are in it to make the world a better place. What we loved about Andrea Bell of Trend Prive Magazine in Nelson BC’s story was her driving motivation of why she does what she does.

It all starts from a place of truly understanding who she is and being confident in her own skin and not afraid to be her true self.

On top of that, It’s having the courage to do what you love and make decisions and chase goals based on what is the most fun, exciting and closest to your true passions.

It’s a story of serendipitous opportunity, and letting fun, creativity and extravagance guide your career, however you choose to define it.

Create your path by following what looks the most fun, putting yourself out there and actively meeting people and making relationships, meet an eccentric, worldly philanthropist, and take the reigns of her new magazine concept, coordinating a global team of talent whom you’ve never met in person all from your home office in The Kootenays? You can do that here!
