Announcing a New Course on Building a Multipotentialite-Friendly Career!

Written by Emilie

Topics: Work Your Work

Hey guys,

I’ve got some big news for you today!

Are you one of those multipotentialites who’s super proud to be a multipod, but hasn’t quite figured out the work piece? I hear from so many people who found my TED talk and felt totally empowered, but also really confused about how to make their multipotentiality work in a realpracticalfinancially sustainable, way.

If this is you, know that you’re not alone and it’s not your fault. We aren’t taught how to build a life and career around multiple interests. It’s not self-evident, and it’s not the dominant approach to career and calling.

I’ve known for a while that there’s a real need for this kind of education. And when I receive career questions from you guys, I so often wish I could implant your brains* with info about how happy and financially comfortable multipotentialites make a living! Because they’re out there, and they’re crushing it.

(*I don’t actually want to implant your brains with anything. I just wish so badly that I could take the information that I’ve gathered from nearly ten years of research and give you that information in one fell swoop!)

It’s for this reason that I decided to develop a new course. This course is called Work Your Work! A Crash Course on Building a Multipotentialite-Friendly Career, and it comes out next Tuesday, October 30!

Work Your Work! has nine modules. It includes short lessons and interactive worksheets that build upon each other and ultimately leave you with a concise (not too concise–don’t worry!) list of personalized career ideas that you can begin exploring whenever you’re ready. I haven’t released a course in a long time, and I feel really proud of this one. I can’t wait to share it with you.

One more thing. I’ve made the decision to price Work Your Work! quite low. Tuition for the whole course will be just $35 USD. Online courses of this scope are typically priced in the $100-$200 range, but I just really want this course to be affordable and accessible to as many multipotentialites as possible.

So there we have it! That’s the big news. Come back to the blog next Tuesday, October 30 to sign up.

Until then, I hope you have a wonderful, creative, and cozy fall week!

    Hi Emilie, could you outline what kind of content to expect from this course? A little vague and I’m really curious on it.
    Thank you !

      Hi Mae,

      Sure. I wanted to keep this announcement fairly short, but here are a few bullet points. In Work Your Work, you’ll learn how to:

      – Piece together part- or full-time work that provides you with the right amount of money, meaning, and variety
      – Adopt the four work models that are most commonly used by multipotentialites
      – Find a field or industry that intersects with several of your disparate interests
      – Design a career that leaves room for you to shape-shift, and explore your curiosity
      – Use both traditional employment and self-employment strategies to build a life around your many passions

      Let me know if you have any more questions! (Though I’m hoping most will be answered when the course comes out next Tuesday. :)
