The Yes I Kan Podcast Ep. 9: Finding the Courage to Pursue Your Joy with Nova Han

When it comes to finding our purpose what’s our guiding compass?

People often talk about finding your purpose…but what do we use as our guiding compass? What does it take to pursue a vision so big that others struggle to understand? What if it wasn’t about money or the next big idea…what if it was simply about follow our joy?
Today, Paul Kan has an amazing conversation with Nova Han, who is one of the leading visionaries and producers in the immersive market and live entertainment. She has been the creative director for world-renown festivals and shows world wide, including Electric Forest Festival, Coachella, and the Official Grammy’s Celebration. Nova has won multiple global awards and has provided works for well-known artists such as the Black Eyed Peas and Deadmau5.
They talk about what it takes to be abundantly paid doing what you love, Nova’s journey to international success (doing one of the coolest jobs in the world in Paul’s opinion) and how to navigate through uncertainty when everything changes.
