I can’t believe it’s been three years! I wrote a little reflection piece about the day I launched Puttylike and what was running through my head. You can find that below.
But first, as promised, the Puttyversary sale is now live. For the next 48 hours, you can pick up all of my products at 50% off their normal price. Get ‘em here:
- Renaissance Business
- Productivity for Multipotentialites
- Puttytribe Membership (first month is 50% off, also we’re capping the number of people we’re letting in today at 50 so as to not overwhelm our existing members. Once the 50 spots are filled, the doors will close and this deal will no longer be available.)
- Or pick up all 3 to really rock the multipotentialite lifestyle!
When you check out, enter the discount code “puttyversary” (without quotes). The sale ends on Wednesday, September 25 at at 11:59pm Pacific.
Now I just have to reflect for a moment.
I remember hitting that button, the big red launch button. It was one of the scariest moments of my life.
I didn’t know if people would care, if they would laugh, if they would think my ideas were ridiculous.
But I hit the button anyway, telling everyone I knew, everyone I could think of about my new project, a website called Puttylike.
Then I promptly left my tiny Danish dorm room and walked through the streets of Copenhagen, distracting myself with whatever I could find, a movie, a book store, whatever.
Until I had nothing left to do but return home.
Surprisingly, hoards of angry haters hadn’t burned down my website. In fact, while I was out walking about, I had received several comments, messages and emails telling me about how inspiring my new project was. (This isn’t to say that I haven’t received any criticism over the years. In fact, I got a rude comment as I was writing this piece right here. It’s just that the negative comments are few and far between and the positive ones are so plentiful and amazing that I have no doubt in my mind that it’s worth it.)
Puttylike started out small. For the first few weeks, there were about ten people on my email list, mostly people I knew in real life, friends and family. But I wrote to them every week. I took my blogging seriously too. So seriously in fact that one of my classmates in law school once asked me what on earth I thought I was doing. I seemed to care far more about this little website than studying for exams. She was right.
When you have a cause that means a lot to you, you must risk being thought of as a fraud or being hated or being laughed at. You must put yourself out there.
Thank you for your continued support. It means the world to me.
Happy puttyversary to us all!
Your pal and fellow multipotentialite,
p.s. Thank you all for the amazing contest entries. Some of your comments made me a little teary-eyed, and it was an extremely hard decision for me. I wish I was able to choose more of you. I do hope that those of you who weren’t picked decide to join the Tribe anyway, because I would love to connect with you in there and see how your multipotentialite life evolves with all the support and resources.
