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 […]

How To Curate Your Experiences and Organize Your Life

Ever Feel like You’re Not Making Any Progress?

You know the scenario. You’ve been working away on your book, website, business and various other projects for months and yet, it never feels like you’ve gotten anywhere with any of them.

How to Learn Anything… FAST! A Conversation with Author, Josh Kaufman

A Letter to My Readers and Friends…

Dear Multipotentialites, Two and a half years ago, I launched Puttylike. At the time, I had no idea whether this information would be of interest to anybody. I didn’t know any other multipotentialites in my life. That word didn’t even exist back then. The only words I knew that might refer to our type were […]
