My mother is from Croatia. My father is from Bosnia-Herzegovina. I was born and educated in Germany and later completed my Masters Degree in France. Since 2005 I live in Mexico and have a chance to share my expertise in building innovation teams, designing and implementing innovation processes in corporations, government institutions and startups (www.danielpandza.com). My passion is to share my expertise in strategic business model design with inspiring personalities whos goal it is to serve a specific purpose and turn their passion into profits.. (http://passionbusiness.net). Moreover, I work on building a community of change agents in my community. Together we work hard on identifying the stories of the people who are plating the seeds for a brighter future of Mexico.

The current business environment and employment market is the perfect environment for taking the risk and try making a living our of our passion. Instead of making a low salary working in a job that does not fulfill us, we should take the courage to explore the opportunity for turning our passion into a business. On the other hand, there is also a significant number of people who are working in a job that does not fulfill them, but they stay in business in order to please 3rd party players (family, friends, fellows) or because they are driven by money that they are making in their current jobs. For both scenarios we need to be aware of the fact that the globalized internet world in which we are living enables us start with relatively low start-up costs. Everybody can find or make the time in order to work in a field that he/she is passionate about.

I have to admit, I am TEDoholic. I need every day a "fix" of inspiration of remarkable people. I feel that TED makes me a better person and makes me reflect on a regular basis "what could I contribute in order to make the world a better place". Two TEDTalks (Richard St. John´s Eight factors for Success and Seth Godin´s talk on "Sliced bread") have inspired me to launch The PassionBusiness Project and produce two TEDx events here in Mexico where I share the stories of people who have mastered their way from transforming their Passion into a income generating profession. These experience have enabled me to travel around Latin America and inspire more people to think big and start working.
