"I didn't discover it, it discovered me." Suze Orman found her passion in a way she never expected.

Here's how you can find your own passion.

Some of our favorite excerpts:

"I didn't discover it, it discovered me. And I really thought I was gonna be a waitress my whole life. I thought, "Oh, maybe I'll even open up my own restaurant," and that was my goal. Never dawned on me to do anything else than that. I wasn't good in school. I never really got a grade above a C when I was in college. I couldn't read, I had a speech impediment, and blah, blah, blah, blah.

And so, when the customers at the Buttercup Bakery had given me $50,000 to open up my own restaurant, and I didn't know what to do with that money and they told me to put it in Merrill Lynch and just wait, and to make a very long story short, all $50,000 was lost 'cause I had a crooked broker at the time. And then I didn't know what to do and I thought, "I know, I can be a broker, they just make you broker."

And I ended up going to Merrill Lynch to interview for a job, 'cause how was I gonna pay these people back on $400 a month? And they hired me to fill their women's quota. And, before you knew it, I was loving what I was doing. I was loving it. And so, it found me. I didn't find it."

"I never set out to be the number one New York Times bestselling author. I never set out to have my own show. It all just came because I kept going for it and going for it. And when anybody asked me to do anything, I said, "Okay." And one thing led to another, and there you are."

  • I listen to you on Michael Moore, Cornel West & Tavis Smiley: America's Poor and the Economic Recession (2012): against Prepaid Credit Cards and then you came around with your own Credit Card??? you went to promote your on credit fraud. Are you part of the 1% right? Published on Jan 16, 2014 Cornel Ronald West (born June 2, 1953) is an American philosopher, academic, activist, author, public intellectual, and prominent member of the Democratic Socialists of America. The son of a Baptist minister, West received his undergraduate education at Harvard University, graduating with his bachelor's degree in 1973, and received his Ph.D at Princeton University in 1980, becoming the first ever African American to graduate from Princeton with a Ph.D in philosophy. He was formerly The Class of 1943 Professor of African American Studies at Princeton before leaving the school in 2011 to become Professor of Philosophy and Christian Practice at the Union Theological Seminary[4] in New York City. He previously taught at Harvard before leaving the school after a highly publicized dispute with then-president Lawrence Summers, and has also spent time teaching at the University of Paris. The bulk of West's work focuses on the role of race, gender, and class in American society and the means by which people act and react to their "radical conditionedness." West draws intellectual contributions from multiple traditions, including Christianity, the black church, Marxism, neopragmatism, and transcendentalism. Among his most influential books are Race Matters (1994) and Democracy Matters (2004). West is a frequent media commentator on political and social issues. He often appears on networks such as CNN, C-SPAN, MSNBC, and PBS and programs such as Real Time With Bill Maher, The Colbert Report, and The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson. Since 2010 he has also co-hosted a radio program with Tavis Smiley, called Smiley and West. He has also been featured in several documentaries, and made appearances in Hollywood blockbuster films The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, also providing commentary for the films. He has also made several spoken word and hip hop albums, and has been named MTV's Artist of the Week for his work.
