Are you really doing what you love? Are you fulfilling your soul purpose? Our next guest found out her soul purpose, thankfully before it was too late!

Rebekah Louisa Smith was earning her PhD, headed to the life of an academic. She had a plan completely mapped out until one day at a conference someone gushed about life as an academic and suddenly she realized, it wasn’t her passion. She didn’t gush over teaching film!

But fortunately, she was also simultaneously working at the Abertoir Horror Festival in Wales, traveling around to festivals all over Europe, gaining a tremendous amount of knowledge about film festivals, as she recruited filmmakers to the prestigious horror festival. She began giving advice to filmmakers who wanted to get into more festivals, win awards and gain visibility that would lead to sales revenue. Then it hit her, that’s what she loved doing! She had a marketable skill that she could turn into a business. Rebekah ultimately became recognized worldwide as The Film Festival Doctor, an innovator in her field. Her company has won more than 800 awards for her clients and has supported 850 creatives to achieve their filmmaking dreams.

In today’s episode we learn more about Rebekah’s amazing career, and how she realized that her “hobby” could truly become her life-long dream career. She also talks about how her super-niche view allowed her to create a market that was just waiting to be discovered.

In her new book, Born to Do It: Becoming the Leader of a Business Niche Using Powerful Spiritual Techniques (https://amzn.to/3fhm1Xb), Rebekah wants to save you the same headaches she experienced, and she provides a roadmap to business success that embraces the spiritual principles that righted her ship. It’s a book for someone just contemplating the entrepreneurial journey or for anyone already growing a business that is struggling or in need of revitalization.
