Profile: Sharon Allen, Achievement Concepts

The passionate Sharon Allen

The passionate Sharon Allen

When I met Sharon Allen at a Women in Business function in Sackville and she told me what she did, “I help people find and achieve their passions,” …well, I was sold! I hadn’t even launched my blog yet and I knew I’d have to profile her and her business, Achievement Concepts.

Sharon spent most of her working life in the financial services industry, and to hear her tell it, the chance to become a trainer and facilitator where she was working simply fell in her lap. But I think it was more than coincidence; I think allowing herself to be open to all possibilities, and not limiting the scope of what she could do, made the career for which she was destined, “fall” into her lap.

However, it may not have seemed like anything but the sky was falling when her job disappeared overnight and she was out of work. Not sure where to head next, friends recommended thepassiontest.com which is the companion website to the book The Passion Test: The Effortless Path to Achieving Your Life Purpose by Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood. “I could see this was the real deal; it made total sense to me, and I wondered, why doesn’t everyone just do this?” Before she knew it, she was signing up to train to become a certified Passion Test Facilitator™.

As a Passion Test™ Facilitator, Sharon is living one of her top five passions — helping others live more fulfilled, purposeful, and passionate lives. And now, having found her passion in helping others to find theirs — every workshop, coaching session and Passion Test™ Party she facilitates confirms she's doing exactly what she should be doing,

So, how do you find your passion? In just three hours Sharon will help you create a list of what you love and care about — the things you want in your life. Then, in a series of questions that you ask yourself, you prioritize and discover the top five things that are most important to you in your life. And finally, Sharon gives you some valuable tools that help you align your life with your passions… like, when faced with a decision — asking yourself, “Will this move me closer to living my passion or further away?”

It sounds so possible, doesn’t it? Who wouldn’t want to figure out their life in three hours?

If you’re like me and have the best intentions in the world when you open up one of those self-help books with the exercises (that we never do…) a workshop like this might just be the ticket — to living your passions and achieving your dreams.
