Many people spend nearly a lifetime searching for their passion. Some have been fortunate to have discovered and pursued it. Others have tapped into it but failed to follow through. Yet, countless people are still asking, “What is my purpose?”
“Your passion is what you love to do,” says motivational speaker, Val Daye, who’s also an ordained minister and founder of The Train Station, a training development company in Huntersville, North Carolina. “Your purpose is why you love to do it.”
The vision behind The Train Station is to help people grow personally and professionally. Daye employs an “expert coaching” technique where clients can comfortably share their personal experiences with trained professionals who have encountered similar situations.
Daye, a 25-year veteran in corporate leadership, along with her training partners, offers several coaching packages that cover a range of topics including leadership, business development and career. However, the most common topic talked about is passion.
“A lot of times they’ve denied themselves the opportunity to do what they love to do,” Daye says, referring to her diverse clientele of individuals, entrepreneurs, corporations and faith-based organizations. “We help guide our clients in what they believe in, what they love to do, and what they feel they’re called to do. Otherwise, you’re going to always end up feeling unfulfilled.”
Daye also mentions that a number of clients struggle with having too much work, not having enough help, and living an imbalanced life. “Once we break it down,” she says, “the discovery is that they have not carved out enough time for themselves.”
In response, Daye is hosting a Power Up conference, an empowerment workshop primarily for women who want to prioritize their lives and rediscover their purpose. It will be held on Sept. 7, 2013 at the Train Station from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
To register, call 704-992-1213 or visit www.trainstationtraining.com. The registration fee is $60 per person and includes a continental breakfast. Seats are limited.
In 2014, Daye will expand her coaching packages to include teleseminars and webinars. She’s also eager to establish franchises across North Carolina and declares, “This train will stop all over the country.”
