Episode 70 – How to find your entrepreneurial purpose with Lindsay Smith, CEO Massive Media
What is it you are meant to do? If a stranger walked up to you on the street and asked you what your purpose in life is, would it match what you’re currently doing?
Whether from a mentor, friend, colleague or conference presentation, we’ve all heard it a million times over, “Do what you love, and success will follow,” but just how do we find out what it is we love, and what we were meant to do with our lives and careers? If you’re one of the lucky ones, you may already know. If not, a tried and tested route to get there is simple trial and error. Every failure is a step towards ultimate success.
Sometimes, as En Vogue in the 90’s would have us believe, we have to just step out of the stream of life, free our minds, and the rest will follow.
For Lindsay Smith, CEO of Massive Media, it was a combination of both. Having already achieve career success in the software game, launched and run the influential Tech Vibes series while climbing the tech industry ladder it was a failure that caused her to reflect, listen to her inner voice and relaunch her career of making the world a more harmonious place through technology that she found her true calling.
I sat down with Lindsay at the first inaugural BC Tech Summit in Vancouver to hear her inspiring tale.
