Multipotentialite Money Mistakes (and How to Avoid Them)!

Editor’s note: this is a guest post by Kristin Wong. Recently, I discovered a few termites around my house. And then a few more, and then even more before I finally realized: uh oh. I have termites. For weeks, I tried to ignore the problem. I guess I figured, if I pretend they’re not here, […]

Which Multipotentialite Season Are You In?

There are times when we’re running full speed on a project (or a handful of projects). We’re deep in it and we feel the momentum. When new, random ideas pop into our minds, we push them to our “someday lists” without much angst. We’re too in love with our main thing(s) right now. There are […]

To my great surprise, I’ve written two books. The first was non-fiction, and I spent the entire process worrying about making factual errors. I checked and rechecked (and rechecked) everything obsessively. At the very least, I wanted to be able to honestly say that I’d done my best to make sure any information I was […]

Why You Should Listen to Yourself and Do What You Want to Do

During our multipotentialite mixer the other day, someone asked me if I thought they needed to make videos for their website when they prefer writing blog posts.

The Science of Being an Authentic Multipotentialite

A few years ago, I was contacted by some Canadian researchers who were studying “people with multiple work identities.” They wanted to interview me for their study, in order to learn about my personal experiences as well as what I’ve observed among my multipotentialite community (i.e. you guys).
