The Joy and Horror of Being Really Really Busy

Being busy is not a novel concept for most multipotentialites. I often have to say no to projects, or make plans to hang out with someone weeks out. Sometimes I take 10+ days to email people back (but I always respond). Busyness is just part of the game, and usually my productivity strategies help me manage […]

Are You Sick of Making Zero Progress on Your Projects?

My biggest ambition is to be an author, which is why I’ve spent the last few years “writing” novels.” I say “writing” because it’s been a pretty on/off experience. One month I’ll be really into it and get really excited about the progress I’m making. The next month, I’ll forget all about it and start […]

“Emilie, what happens if you lose interest in Puttylike?”

Is there a danger in being invested in a project run by a multipotentialite? Possibly. After all, you never know when they might change directions. Today, I’m going to address the elephant in the room. I was recently asked the following question: “Hey Emilie, what happens if you lose interest in Puttylike one day? Are you going […]

A Personal Note from Emilie Before the TED Flurry Hits

There’s this awkward thing that happens when you host a big time-sensitive project (like a sale) on your site. You need to put your marketing cap on for a while, and do the project justice by talking about it a lot. This isn’t actually painful, since you believe in what you’re selling. But in the flurry […]

I GAVE A TED TALK LAST WEEKEND

For months I’ve had a secret that I’ve been aching to tell you. Last January I learned that I would be speaking at a Tedx event in Bend, Oregon. However, I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement saying that I wouldn’t announce it publicly till the day of the event. That day was April 18, last […]

I’m a Multipotentialite!… Now what?

It can be a huge relief to learn that you are a multipotentialite. Suddenly all of these patterns you’ve noticed in your life start making sense. You realize that you aren’t a scatterbrain or commitment-phobe, you’re something else, something good! What’s more, you aren’t alone. There are thousands of other people out there who share […]

My Goals (or Lack Thereof) for 2015

I’ve restarted this post about half a dozen times now. I’m having a difficult time describing my goals for 2015, and I think that’s because I’ve been feeling a need lately to NOT plan. I’m more interested in listening to my gut, pushing myself into new realms, and being flexible when opportunities and challenges present […]

2014: A Year of Change, Upheaval and Growth

At the beginning of 2014, I had no idea what was coming. I hadn’t planned on having a transitory year that included so much upheaval, but that’s exactly what I got. My environment has changed drastically over the course of the last twelve months and things look radically different now than they did in January […]
