I hope you’re doing well, wherever you are in the world right now. Things are so different, right now depending on where and who you are. Just hoping you and your loved ones are safe.
I wanted to let you know about two free events that I’m co-hosting in the coming weeks. Both are with dear friends of mine, and they’re going to be fantastic. I’m letting you know a little ahead of time so you can add them to your calendar now and plan to join me live!
The first event is for aspiring entrepreneurs and the second is for anyone looking to connect and collaborate with other friendly multipotentialites.

Monday, May 10 at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT / 6pm CEST
Been trying to get a business off the ground for months or years now, but can’t seem to make it happen? Convinced your Shiny Object Syndrome will prevent you from being a successful business owner? Do you know you want your future career to be entrepreneurial, but have no idea where to start? In this 1-hour training, you’ll learn:
- Why entrepreneurship is a *great* choice for a multipod career
- The 5 things that are holding you back from opening your doors
- Tangible, actionable ways to work through your challenges and get to Launch Day – and beyond!
- Why you don’t need to niche yourself to death to become a successful entrepreneur
- Anything you’d like – there’ll be plenty of time for Q&A!
My good friend, Michelle Ward, will be running this workshop. I’ll be there to co-host, take your questions and maybe give my thoughts from time to time. Michelle recently shared some great advice with y’all on Puttylike. So, check that out for a preview.
The Multipotentialite Offers and Needs Market
Wednesday, May 19 at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT / 8pm CEST
The Offers and Needs Market (OANM) is a joyful, guided process where groups come together to discover and exchange their passions, knowledge, skills, resources, and needs. Whether for free, barter, or a set rate, people offer and need things like tech help, a place to live, or some extra produce.
The OANM unearths and shares the diverse forms of wealth we all have and reminds us that so much of what we need for a good life is already within our grasp.
Participants have found work, housing, new friends, a richer self-identity, and even a renewed trust in their community. Each exchange builds a connection, more connections create meaningful relationships, and the collective relationships strengthen communities — and maybe even create new ones.
The OANM is a simple, playful, and cheerful way to highlight what people can already do, and provides a positive way to short-circuit the “But we don’t have any resources!” narrative. The emphasis is on creating and sustaining a mindset of what you can do to help – and get helped – right now.
My right-hand puttypal, Joel Zaslofsky, will be facilitating this event and I’ll be the co-host. It’s totally free, but there’s only space for 60 people. Participants will have to do a bit of prep work ahead of time, but it’ll be SO worth it. This will be a truly awesome event and you’ll get to meet a bunch of rad multipotentialites!
Woo! I’m so excited about both of these events. Space is limited, so if you’d like to join, be sure to sign up soon.
Hope to see you there!
Your pal and fellow multipotentialite,
