Are You Blurring the Line between Work and Play?

This one is for the self-employed multipotentialites. Have you found that the line between your personal and business passions is so blurred that it’s pretty much non-existent most of the time? With a job you get to “go to work” and then “come home” from work and leave that part of yourself behind at the […]

How to Cope with Overwhelm

Put your hands up if you’ve ever had a bad case of overwhelm. (I bet there’s a great big sea of hands waving back at me right about now.) Being a multipotentialite is like being the plate spinner at the circus. We have so many projects on the go at the same time and we try not to […]

3 Nifty Strategies for Picking Your Next Project

The trouble with having so many interests is that you can end up in choice paralysis, so unsure about which idea to start on next that you end up starting nothing. It can become all too easy to over-think the process.  “What if I make the wrong choice? I don’t want to waste all my time […]

Have You Made this Common Multipotentialite Mistake?

I’d always thought it was normal to dive head first into five projects at once. Doesn’t everyone work like this? No, I later found out. Apparently they don’t. While being a multipotentialite is fantastic, it does present certain challenges. Unfortunately in our modern, specialist-oriented world, we’re often left feeling unprepared for how to handle your […]

How to Focus when there is No One Focus

As a self employed multipotentialite, I juggle writing gigs, web design and graphic design projects. I dream of being a life coach, having my own e-course and/or membership site, filling sold out workshops and in-person retreats, and writing Amazon bestsellers. I have a million ideas bouncing around in my head that I have yet to […]

Contest Time! Win a Lifetime Membership to the Puttytribe

Before swinging over here to write this blog post, I thought I’d log in to the Puttytribe to see what new discussions had popped up over night. I wish I could just copy and paste what I found, but that would compromise the safe space I’m trying to cultivate. One of our early pioneer members, […]

How To Get it Together when Things are Falling Apart

This is a guest post by Rebecca Louder. Every now and then, I seriously consider throwing in the towel and taking a horrifying minimum-wage job involving a uniform and name tag, just to quell my overwhelming, inaccurate self-judgment of being incredibly lazy and ineffectual. I partially blame my present bout of McJobitis on a combination […]
