Greetings multipods!

You’ve been a huge part of my life for the last five years. I love hearing about your projects, dreams, and passions. I love brainstorming with you in huddles, on the blog, and via email. Thank you so much for being the most interesting, creative, and big-hearted community I could ever hope for, and for supporting my work and ideas these last few years.

As a little thank you, I’m running a sale this week. From today through Thurs Sept 24, the following Puttylike products are 40% off:

The sale ends on Thursday, September 24 at 11:59pm PDT.

    Hi there, I just watched your Ted talk and I wanted to say thank you I guess. I’m a 15 year old currently under enormous pressure to “choose” a future pathway. With next year’s subject selections coming up, I’ve sort of lost it. I’ve been in a semi permanent state of peril as of late, constantly stressed about not knowing what I want and keeping my options open and not taking to many essay based subjects and not knowing how I feel about anything yet. I keep waiting for some kind of “breakthrough” but watching your videos has helped me understand that maybe that breakthrough doesn’t exist, and maybe that’s okay. You’ve taken a massive weight off my shoulders, and I cannot thank you enough. You’ve given me the breakthrough I needed, even if it’s the opposite of what I was looking for.

    I am 42 and when I was your age I wanted to be an Architectural Engineer, until I realized I was colour blind, after my first year of college.

    I took Marketing for two years and excelled. But I was shy and terrible at direct sales and had no confidence to jump into a career.

    I worked in quick food service for a combined ten years. I was extremely good at it. Now 10 years later I realized I’m a multipod.

    For the last 13 years I’ve been a factory worker. The money is very good. Benefits help me family. But now I’m bored.

    I have been searching for the last 17 years for what I really want to do. I only now know what I like, dislike, and what I would like to do for the rest of my life.

    What I am trying to do now is, how to put it all together.

    Don’t worry, take your time. I am glad you have given yourself a chance to step back to see that not everything can fall into place.

    Breathe, live, laugh, and love. When the time is right, you will be the first to know.

    Good Luck at school!
