Many people believe their passions in life are not worth pursuing as a career. Chris Johnson is living proof that if you are passionate enough and believe in yourself, that is all you need to create your dream life.
Chris is now celebrating 3 years of Passion Pod, an inspirational, storytelling experience featuring unique guests that are pursuing careers based on their passions in hopes to inspire the audience to recognize their own passions and to encourage and help them to find more ways to incorporate those passions into their lives.
Chris Johnson spent years hopping from one corporate sales job to another, putting the dreams of his 14 year old self of owning a skateboard shop to the side. In 2014, he realized there was so much more to life. He took the risk and decided to follow his childhood dream and opened a Passion Board Shop in his hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
After many years of success, Chris felt there was more he could do to add to his dream life. That is what led to Passion Pod’s creation in September 2019. Passion Pod has since featured a list of over 100 incredible guests including Lamorne Morris, Makaila Murphy, Isaac Pelayo, Gwen Singer, Scott Lipps, Maestro Harrell, and many more.
Chris now travels the country to seek out individuals who are able to passionately tell their story of dream chasing and success. Chris wants to lead the conversation and inspire others to tap into their full potential. Passion Pod can be found on all major streaming platforms and can also be viewed on YouTube.
Passion Pod Season 10 premiers weekly starting September 5th. Tune in and become inspired.
