023 - Emilie Wapnick on Feeding Your Many Talents

Emilie Wapnick Putty MultipotentialiteHave you ever felt constricted because the world was pressuring you to find a single purpose and passion? If so, you'll love this interview with Emilie Wapnick.

She believes that many people simply don't have one true calling - and you may be better off embracing a variety of interests throughout your life.

In this interview Emilie reveals:
  • How she turned a "refuse to choose" attitude into a business
  • Why a low point in her life lead to what she's doing now
  • How Chris Guillebeau's World Domination Summit changed her life
  • Mistakes she made when offering a coaching service - and how to do it better
  • The importance of building a team and finding competent people through your existing tribe
  • Her amazing big picture vision of why "Multipotentialites" are so important

  1. I jumped up and down.... multiple times while listening to this podcast.
    I felt like I was listening to an interview of myself (sans my southern accent).

    Seriously, I have a blog called Polymath. This feelings is indescribable- Even though I come across other people like Emilie & myself on the web, I HAD to hear another human being declare what we do aloud for it to be real to me... Thank you both so much! You just radically changed my life.

  2. Wonderful interview with a wonderful person. This is especially meaningful to me as it gives me credence, permission, if you will, to be a multi-potentialite and embrace the lifestyle.
