Have you ever been in a seemingly great situation but felt unfulfilled and contemplated leaving to find something more aligned with your purpose? If you answered "yes" or even "maybe" then that's a sign that you NEED to tune in to this week's episode of the Opportunity Knocks podcast.
My guest this week is Pamela Salzman, a certified holistic health counselor, full-time cooking instructor and chef, and best-selling author of ✌️ cookbooks. 👩🍳
Early on in Pamela's life, she thought she had arrived. She had graduated with a degree from an Ivy League university, she got her MBA, and she had experience in the beauty and film industry with a promising career ahead. Then she had her first child and left it all. After some reflection, she decided not to jump back into it because she just didn't feel any love for it and felt it was lacking the meaning she was after in her life.
Pamela always had a passion for food and nutrition and wanted to help people grasp the importance of proper nutrition and eating real food. She was participating in cooking groups and ended up being asked to teach a “healthful cooking class” for a group of young mothers. Her passion and opportunity collided! A business grew organically from that first group and she knew she had a message and a new mission in life.
Pamela is now widely known in the food, cooking, and nutrition world and has two best-selling cookbooks focused on healthy meals that don't require a degree from a culinary school. She's also sought after for her cooking classes that teach fairly easy methods using ingredients that can be found in a local supermarket to create dishes that can be served to a whole family.
During our conversation she touches on:
🔹 her journey to becoming an entrepreneur
🔹 why perfection is the enemy of progress (especially when it comes to nutrition)
🔹 real-world examples of how to improve your own diet and relationship with food
🔹 the difference between weight management and wellness
🔹 and of course, the values that drive her
Pamela will give you hope if you're searching for your purpose and a more fulfilling life, and you'll definitely be checking out her website, classes, and social media pages to up your cooking and nutrition game! Enjoy! 💖
