Step in the arena of career as entrepreneur and FlyteVu Founding Partner, Jeremy Holley shares his story and along the way shares foundational principles that you can apply to help you move from simply working a "job" to actually pursuing your passion.

Maybe you find yourself approaching college graduation and you’re not sure what you’re supposed to pursue for a career. Maybe you’ve been working a job you hate for a number of years to simply pay the bills and fund the types of activities that you truly enjoy. Regardless of your situation, it is possible to move from a job you endure to a vocation that you’re passionate about.

Jeremy and his business partner have one of Adweek’s 100 Fastest Growing Agencies in the world.

Throughout this interview, Jeremy shares:

  • How his love for music led him to move to Nashville.

  • How the “detours” of life can be used by God to shape our future.

  • How understanding God’s will for our lives does not excuse us from hustling to see it become a reality.

  • How a man should face his fears in community, and not isolate himself as he tries to figure things out.

  • How using a framework of mission, value, and purpose to guide your decisions will create a focused pursuit.

  • Action steps you can begin taking today to pursue your dreams.

I hope this interview encourages and equips you to step into the arena of your career and begin pursuing your passion. Below you’ll find links to the things discussed within the episode as well as a very helpful article below that Jeremy shared with me that can guide you through considering your passion.

I’d love to hear your feedback about what you’re pursuing and how this episode has inspired you. As always, let me know how I can help you in any way. Get out of the stands and off the sidelines and step into the arena…the Arena of Man.

In the arena with you,

Andy
