My Saipan-Specific “Resume”
As a transplanted resident of Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) since 2006, I have embarked on several projects to make a difference and to help improve the quality of life here on the island.
Since relocating here, I have:
► conducted several “Turn Your Passion into Profit” workshops and writer workshops on Saipan as well as the neighboring islands of Tinian and Guam for the Chamber of Commerce and US Navy.
► launched the “We Love Saipan” website/blogger movement then 20 additional sites devoted to showing the world the often overlooked images and impressions of Saipan and the CNMI (Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands).
► started a Food Co-op/Buyer’s Group as well as a GoogleGroup for vegetarians, vegans and other health-conscious residents.
(Screenings of health documentaries are being planned in order to raise the health consciousness on island!)
► written over 300 empowerment articles for the Saipan Tribune newspaper in my weekly Saipanpreneur Column which ran for five years.
► written for The Marianas Variety, Guam Business Journal and Marianas Business Journal,
Jamaican on Saipan! My first year and impressions of life on a different island paradise!

Diary of a Chinese Garment Factory Girl on Saipan, co-authored
with former garment factory worker Chun Yu Wang. It remains the only first-hand account of factory life on Saipan during the “Garment Era” and was used as a textbook in several “Textile Industry” and “Women’s Studies” courses in at least three universities in the mainland US. Portions of t were excerpted in a French textbook on the American Dream

► I launched a Change.org campaign to encourage Crayola Crayons to name their new blue color “Saipan Blue” in tribute to the amazingly blue waters that surround the island! SaipanBlue.com

When it comes to making changes in your life, following your passion
and living true to yourself, here are the points I’m here to prove:
A. Others are doing it.
B. You can do this.
C. Everything you believe…is wrong.
D. Therefore, once you free yourself from the deceptions under which
you are operating, your life can change dramatically!
When I first heard your personal story of the experiences that led you to the path of the passion pursuit, I knew you were achieving what many people think is out of their reach. You made me see that achievement had never been out of the reach for me. After attending your seminar and purchasing your book, I knew that the passion within me could only be profitable once I decided to take the necessary steps to success. I saw you as someone I was able to connect with and it made me think, “If he can do it, so can I.” I am currently turning the passion I have of creating artwork, photography and dance to that next level. No longer are these just hobbies but a way of life that is invigorating, challenging and fulfilling. I feel a deeper connection to the purpose of this life path I am on. By focusing on this passion of creation, I am liberating myself from the limits of doing something I had no passion for. Getting Turn Your Passion into Profit was one of my first steps to acknowledging my own purpose, power and freedom. Thank you! And this comes straight from the heart because that is where passion truly lives. Peace and blessings!”–Nicole Woo, DC

it is necessary to create streams of income that can free you from a dependency on a paycheck. It’s a very practical consideration. The more dependent you are on a single source of income for your survival, the less free you are.
