Because passion pushes us to go further. It’s about loving and believing in something so intently that it compels us to be better people.
Passion is also what two university students found as they travelled across the globe. Curious about what made people flourish, brothers Mark and Nathan Laurie began asking successful people what, exactly, made them successful, and they all said the same thing: passion. You have to love what you do and believe in it. With $500 in savings, the brothers started Passion Inc. with a simple, yet important mission: to keep job seekers and employers connected to each other. An award-winning, multi-disciplinary organization, now doing business in 27 countries, we are proof that private companies can succeed while helping people. We build connections, spread information, and start conversations. It’s what we love, it’s what we believe in, it’s our passion.
