Purpose, Passion, and Pajamas is the story of Genevieve Piturro’s triumphant leap off the corporate ladder to find her life’s true calling. What started with a simple question from a little girl led Genevieve to conceive of and build the nonprofit Pajama Program in 2001, resulting in a featured appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show and an awe-inspiring display of compassion throughout the US and beyond. Today, Pajama Program has distributed over seven million pairs of pajamas, opened 63 chapters across the U.S., and established reading centers for children.
In her inspirational narrative, Genevieve Piturro shows you how to
• notice and listen to the quiet, internal voice nudging you in a new direction;
• lead with empathy, passion, and purpose;
• realize the importance of the human connection we’ve lost in our modern world.
Purpose, Passion, and Pajamas brings you to the heart of the matter with eye-opening lessons in leadership, personal growth, and the tools and motivation to “find your pajamas.”
Purpose, Passion, and Pajamas by Genevieve Piturro is an amazing self-help motivator. Inside, are blunt short, yet honest ways to find your purpose and passion. I loved how she mentioned that: “…small gestures whether kind or cruel could change someone’s life forever.” It is true! I liked that she dug deep in the beginning. “Learn from your childhood lessons.” Most of us think what could something from our youth teach us, as adults? The answer is everything. Kindness for one can have a huge impact on oneself and on the others in one’s life. Think of a chain reaction. Second, advice was to examine the way I always did things. Okay, that hit home tougher than I’d like. But it helps me get closer to the meaning of this book and what it’s trying to help me find. Maybe, the path we thought we should be on isn’t the right one for us…I am still struggling to find mine. However, this nonfiction book gave me a lot to chew on for awhile until I can figure my next step of action.
