Multipotentialites and Work
One of the biggest challenges for the modern multipotentialite is finding and sustaining fulfilling work. Variety and exploration are essential for multipods and we need to design careers and lives that account for this. But it can be difficult to find work that allows you to do many things while also meeting your financial goals. It often requires that you think outside the box and take a more customized approach to your career.
Figuring out how to sustainably combine and/or shift between different subjects takes time and experimentation. This process is different for each of us, but that doesn’t mean we have to go it alone.
