Well, I’m Walking on Air…

Well, I’m Walking on Air…

Topics: The Book

Hey multipotentialite friends,

What a wild week it’s been! Not only did How to Be Everything hit the shelves across North America, but the other day, Valerie and I finalized the sale on an adorable cabin we’ve been working on buying. Our first stab at home ownership! (For future reference, launching a book and buying a house at the same time is not recommended…but sometimes you just do what you need to do. Who ever heard of too much awesome, anyway?) In any case, I’m imagining multipotentialite Puttyretreats and loads of collaborative fun on our new little island in Canada. Who’s in? ;)

To those of you who picked up the book, I cannot thank you enough for your love, support, and sheer awesomeness. I hope you find HTBE useful and I really hope I did our community proud. I want to make it easier for multipotentialites to flourish and help the world better understand us. Hopefully How to Be Everything will make a difference in this way.

If I had to pick one highlight of the past week, it would be the book launch at Powell’s bookstore in Portland. Thought I’d share some photos of that day (and one little photo of the new house, cause I can’t help it):

Lots of love,

Your pal and fellow multipotentialite,


p.s. I’m not going to do a whole big sales pitch, but if you happen to be looking to join a community of amazing multipotentialites who ‘get it’ and can help support your many projects and dreams, we’re accepting new members to the Puttytribe tomorrow, May 9, for just 24 hours. Learn all about it here!


  1. I just discovered your TED talk this morning and you have changed my life. I am and always have been a major Multipotentialite and never have gotten to be proud of it before. I have shared with my blog readers – who are SO in need of this information.

    And the new cabin looks divine.

    Off to buy your books now.

    Hey Emilie! You did it! You bought the house! YAY!!! So, so, so happy for you!

    And of course, super happy about your book. Haven’t gotten it yet, but going to soon.

    Take care and chat soon on the Puttytribe!

    Sandrine, the pilot (from Montreal)!

    Congratulations Emily on everything, you deserve it!! When I grow up I want to be you, living the dream! Can’t wait to read the book. I’m grateful for all that you do to inspire me and the other Multipods. Keep up the Great work!

  4. Sue says:

    Well done Emilie! You’ve travelled so far since you started Puttytribe; always loyal and always “you”.
    You really are a terrific role model. Thank you.

    And as for the cabin…oooooooh.

    My book is on pre-order so I am awaiting 15 June release date for UK! Was so pleased to find out about your work from Scott Barlow podcast, I have always wondered if I was on my own with this. For some time I have been wondering about branching out and making a current hobby part of my work-life. I am now going to read the book first!
    Thank you, hope you will be happy in the cabin.

    Anna :-)

    Hi Emilie,

    congrats to you! Your book lies next to my pillow :-)
    And I really love your house. It looks perfect. Cosy, unique, and somehow fairytale-like ….

    Thank you for sharing the pictures

    Also, everything else!!

    What an incredible moment Emilie! Savour it all :)

    Your house (and its location) are a dream! You’re basically living my dream life. :) I’m so happy for you!
