Passion is Pursuit Conference (Sponsors)

June 24, 2017 8:00 am - 8:30 pm TBA

The mission of the Passion is Pursuit Conference is to empower, equip and educate entrepreneurial millennials of faith within the entertainment and media industries, through a one-day conference filled with thought-provoking, life-changing workshops, panel discussions, keynote presentations, professional networking, and entertainment. This year’s theme is “Move Different” and our purpose is to inspire, inform, and ignite the Passioneer in everyone present – from attendees and vendors to volunteers and the sponsored mentees. We also seek to provide an arena for up-and coming and well-established companies to sell their products and for performers to showcase their talents.

And our motto? It’s simple – Passion is Pursuit.

What is a Passioneer? Founder of the Passion is Pursuit Conference, Cassondra Lenoir, coined the term. She also created the following definition for passion. “Passion is the driving force in one’s life. It’s the thing that keeps you dedicated, motivated, and focused in striving to achieve greatness.” For Cassondra, a pioneer is defined as a person who is among the first to explore or settle in a new space – whether physically, mentally, spiritually, relationally, or financially. Ultimately, a Passioneer is someone who through pursuing their passions charters new territory. It isn’t necessarily unchartered territory, but they are the first of their kind to do it – be it, the first in their family, friends, generation, etc. Passioneers pretty much figure out which route to take through life’s journey by following the burning desire within. Passioneers understand that impossible is nothing. They continuously turn their cants into cans, dreams into plans, and visions into their reality because they understand that the proof of PASSION IS PURSUIT. And most importantly, once Passioneers arrive in this new space, they then prepare the way for others to follow.

The Passion is Pursuit Conference is an offspring of Cassondra’s self-published book, “From Nothing to New York,” where the subtitle is “Passion is Pursuit.” After creating the phrase in college, it has not only become a battle-cry for Passioneers but a way of life…THE way of life.
