Greetings Multipotentialites,


I have news.

News that will be particularly relevant to you if you are:

a) a multipotentialite

b) building or growing your own business

c) someone who loves brainstorming, collaborating, and being around lovely, inspiring people, who are also pursuing big goals

From June 4-6, I’m going to be running an intimate retreat in Devon, England, and I would love for you to join me.

PuttyRetreat 2016 will take place in a large cottage in the countryside, and enrollment will be capped at just 12 multipotentialites. We’ll all stay on site, and for three days, we will spotlight, workshop, dissect, brainstorm, strategize, and laugh…a lot!

It doesn’t matter if you’re just getting your business off the ground or if you’ve been running it for awhile. All multipotentialite entrepreneurs are welcome. You will leave the retreat with clarity, new ideas for your business, action steps to move you toward your personal and income goals, and plenty of friends/accountability buddies.

My team and I have been working hard to get all the pieces in place, and we’re almost ready to open enrollment. Consider this your early notice:

Registration for the PuttyRetreat 2016 opens next Tuesday, February 2 at 8am GMT, and is limited to 12 participants. 

All of the details (programming, schedule, cost, etc.) will be available at this time, as well.

If you’re interested in joining us at the PuttyRetreat be sure to mark it on your calendar and check your email on Tuesday at 8am GMT. Spots will go fast. If you’re not already on the email list, scroll up, and enter your contact info in the green box on your right.

I can’t WAIT to see you in Devon on June 4!!

    I would love to attend this retreat, sounds wonderful, I have experience leading meditation retreats, but I’m very curious to see how would a multipotentialite retreat works. I’m sure you guys will develop great ideas and projects. Unfortunately I’m on the other side of the world! Is it possible to attend by Google hangouts or Skype? it would be great if at least you can record it and later we can watch some of your meetings online. Your book has helped me very much in setting up my Renaissance Business, integrating meditation-psychology coaching with my passion for painting and photography. Still in baby stages. I would appreciate if anybody here can take a look and let me know your opinion about my site I’m trying to integrate all my multipontentialite interests on it. Thanks.

  6. Just followed your excellent TED video around multipotentialites. I can’t settle for long in life and believe I may have this! When I say ‘life’ I mean all that there is to offer during the time we are on this planet and not narrowed it down to just education, career, interests and hobbies.

    Would be interested to find out more about the summer Puttygroup in Devon this year…if there’s space.

    Best wishes,

  8. Oh! just found you on Ted Talk today, and you’re in the UK in june.. is there any spots left?

      Hi Orlando,

      Nice to meet you. Unfortunately, we closed registration for the retreat. But I’m thinking about doing a one day seminar in London while I’m over there, (which will be a lot cheaper than the retreat). There seems to be quite a bit of interest, and I think it would be a lot of fun to meet more UK multipotentialites!

      • Alison says:

        Hi Emilie,
        Just seen your TED talk and loved it. Very inspiring. I found you and your retreat too late but noted that a seminar in London was mentioned. This too is very exciting and I know some of us at Contains Art would like to go. We also run speaker events at Contains Art in Somerset near the Devon border (so not far from your retreat) maybe you would be interested in giving us a talk?
        It would be super to here from you.
        Best wishes,

  9. Your thinking? … No no no my dear, don’t just think about it, Do it! (lol)

    I have access to few meeting spaces in London let me know if thats a need.

    hi Emily,
    I just came here from watching your inspirational Ted talk on the topic of a multi potentialite persona portfolio :-)
    And I can’t really find words on how I feel right now because I am intrigued! You. just. caught. me. You. Just. Described . Me. :-))) I may just have received the answer to many many many questions I have been having for my life since I was thirty years old. And I can’t thank you enough for bringing light into my being and why finding my reason for being in this world and why I can’t stick with one thing and why I feel bored once I surround myself with one thing for too long and why I am reading five books at once and why I can’t seem to fit into this one category bad I feel everyone seems to have a fit for, has been impossible to date.
    It never occurred to me I was perfectly normal.

    Now, I’m German living in Berlin and I’m wondering how many of us may be out here feeling like I do? Do you know? I am an entrepreneur since 2012 and I’m (well, I was) just on my verge to finding the one thing that I might be able to fit into.…
    I might just call it a quit.…?! ;-)
