Passion Series No. 1: Helping People #LiveBrighter

If you have been following my other page, The Purple Secretary, you might have noticed my favorite hashtag #makepassionyourprofession. It is actually one of my favorite personal advocacies which I got from the movie, 3 Idiots, and Sha Nacino's MISSION HAPPINESS book. It is the same idea that was presented in Yeng Remulla's book -- START SOMETHING. 

It is all about finding the 3P's in life -- Passion, Purpose, and Profit. Find all these three things together at the same time and this is what we call - The Sweet and Perfect Spot. So, I am launching these series on my blog to share stories and inspiration about how to make passion your profession. We will discuss different career options that you can consider with high hopes that you can also find your own sweet and perfect spot. 

First Stop: Helping Other People #LiveBrighter

Whether we admit it or not, financial illiteracy is one of the major concerns nowadays. You might be able to hear stories about people who used to be really rich but now is left with nothing due to bad luck or bad decisions. Regardless of the reason, we can say that proper financial planning could have made things different. 

Thus, one of the careers that you can consider is to become a Sun Life Advisor, you can help people (passion) plan for their future while enjoying limitless earning potential (profit.) In this way, you can make a positive difference in the lives of others by helping them fulfill their financial goals (purpose.) 

A big portion of the population is still without any form of life insurance and investment. By providing relevant financial advice and guiding them along the way, you can help ensure their security and growth, and help them build a solid future for themselves and their loved ones.

  1. Wow, this is very timely. I was looking for other paths to ponder on and lo and behold! I see this. I was asked also by my friend to try to become a financial advisor but with another company. Sun Life is becoming more and more interesting as they keep on reaching out to millennials. I've attended one of their events last year and really learned a lot!

  2. I have previously attended the forum organized by Sun Life that mainly focused for mothers and it was indeed a very nice forum and I have learned a lot of things from it! If I have had attended this forum, I may have learned even more. :)

  3. Wow Sunlife is doing good by promoting this. You are right about the movie 3 Idiots - it does give the message to follow your passion. To switch to something new the training they intend to offer is really going to be helpful. I will watch out for something similar in part of the town.

  4. I love the hashtag #makeyourpassionyourprofession indeed if you have your passion with what you do esp. work or business, it doesn't feel like work at all. And the inspiration radiates to other people as well..

  5. You absolutely hit the nail on the head there. Financial illiteracy is indeed one of the major concerns nowadays. Many of my friends too have invested so poorly that there is problem that needs to be solved ASAP. Hope someone reaches out to them and explains the options!

  6. This is an excellent opportunity for all those who are good in providing others with economic advice, and who love to connect their job and passions. As far as I see, Sun Life is doing a great job, especially with the millenials. So, good luck for the future!

  7. Loving this hashtag #makeyourpassionyourprofession and loving how you discussed that it really is the perfect sweet spot when you get to help people, earn, and as well as help people find their purpose. A career as an insurance agent is not for everyone as one still has to be passionate in doing it in order to succeed. But it's a great a option for those who don't know what career path to take. For me, I hope that blogging will continue to be my sweet spot.

  8. I actually have two policies with Sunlife, and I can't wait to finish paying them off! 5 years to go! Haha! I also have a few friends who are Sunlife financial advisors, and if there is one thing they have in common, it's really their unmistakable passion in spreading financial literacy. They eat, breathe, and sleep their passion, and it's easy to see how their hard work and love for their job really pays off. They seem very positive about life.

  9. I believe in make passion your profession. Everything you do will seem easy and enjoyable because it is something you believe in. I hope others would find their passion too so they would be advocates of their own work. As for Sun Life, I always believe in the brand and its commitment.

  10. Working on a profession that is also a passion is rewarding.This make that you no longer have work stress.I experience this flexibility of working now and I am more happier than my full time working days.It seems like being a Sun Life Advisor is rewarding in many ways...
