Take an insatiable curiosity about people, add a brain that's a nonstop idea machine, and stir it all up with equal parts intuitive and analytical. Add a dash of light-hearted fun. What do you get? In Curt Rosengren's case, you get a career as a Passion Catalyst TM. Rosengren has built that career around three simple questions. What lights you up? What difference do you feel compelled to make in the world? And finally, how do you create a livelihood based on that?
In his work as a coach, writer, and speaker, Rosengren’s insights have helped thousands tap into the power of passion.
His e-book, The Occupational Adventure Guide: A Travel Guide to the Career of Your Dreams, takes the reader through the step-by-step system he developed to help people navigate the process, providing a simple, effective framework for finding passion.
His book, 101 Ways to Get Wild About Work offers 101 bite-sized, doable ways to inject more energy into your career (and your life!).
Rosengren also blogs about career passion for the U.S. News & World Report's Outside Voices blog. He is quoted regularly in newspapers throughout the US, and is a frequent guest on radio shows across the country. His first blog, The Occupational Adventure, was chosen by Forbes.com as one of the Best of the Web.
He is consistently inspired by people who are working to make the world a better place and having an amazing time along the way.
Based in Seattle, Rosengren has traveled to thirty-plus countries and lived in five (US, UK, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland). He speaks reasonably fluent Swedish, functionally ugly Spanish, and can read French well enough to get himself into trouble at a French restaurant.
