I’ve noticed a disturbing trend in the blogosphere lately…
It seems that a lot of successful multipotentialite entrepreneurs have been publishing blog posts about how, when it comes to choosing a topic for your business, it’s best to “choose one thing”.
This baffles me, as most of these people actually brought multiple interests together. It’s their diverse backgrounds that got them to where they are and made their brand so unique. And now they’re counseling other people to “pick one thing”? Shouldn’t they be encouraging others to do what they did and find ways of creatively bringing their interests together in one venture or offering?
The other thing that pains me, is that most of these entrepreneurs are people I look up to. I think that’s why it’s so upsetting. These are genuinely awesome multipotentialites who should be role models for the multipotentialite community… and it sort of feels like they’re rejecting us.
I don’t think they’re doing it on purpose though. I think it’s a lack of awareness thing. And so, I thought I’d make a video, to maybe bring some awareness to the issue.
What do you think?
Why do you think some successful multipotentialites are suddenly encouraging others to deny their multipotentiality instead of finding ways to use it?
