Christmas, Friendships and Living in the “In-Betweens”

Most multipotentialites are intimately familiar with the “in-betweens.” We love exploring the connections between disparate ideas and we often work in industries that intersect with other areas. Socially and identity-wise we often inhabit the “in betweens,” as well. We may find ourselves floating between social groups. I, for one, have always had a motley array […]

So I’m A Multipotentialite… What Now?!

Congratulations! You’re a multipotentialite! At least, I expect you are, because you’re reading this article. Maybe you’re not sure. In that case, I’d like to remind you that there’s no barrier to entry.

“I saw it as the one defining principle of my life that kept me from achieving greatness.”

I occasionally receive an email that I think would be helpful to share with the community. I’m honestly a little nervous about sharing this one because, well, Mike says some really nice things about my work, and I don’t want this to come across as me posting a testimonial or bragging… I’m, of course, super appreciative for his kind words.

A Bad Case of Imposter Syndrome

Sometimes I will get a hankering in my heart to write a blog post. Usually I’ll have a topic in mind, but not always. Sometimes I’ll just want to connect with my peeps and express myself– to see and be seen. I’ve been feeling that pull lately. I’ve also been feeling a great deal of […]

Do You Have One Why or Many Whys?

A few weeks ago, my friend, Jeff asked me what my “Why” is. We’ve talked a lot about Whys here at Puttylike. They’re kind of like personal overarching themes; the force that draws you to your various interests. Maybe your Why has to do with empowering people who lack a voice, and that has led you to […]

How 5 years of Puttylike has changed my life

Puttylike is now five years old, and I’m a little stunned. The time flew by, yet so much has changed. I was 26 when I launched this site, and I’m 31 now. The late twenties tend to be significant for most people, and they certainly have been for me. They also happen to coincide with Puttylike’s […]
