What Does a Community of Multipotentialites LOOK Like?

Hi multipotentialite friends!

I’m a little giddy this morning because I have something to show you. So many of you have emailed me over the years with questions about the Puttytribe. It seems that many of you don’t really understand what the community is… Like, what is it EXACTLY??? A forum?…Group coaching?…Huh??

Well, it’s time to pull back the curtain a little, because… I made a video!

Just to state the obvious, this is a promotional video. But it was also a joy to make and something I’m really proud of because:

A) I totally love the Puttytribe and believe in what we’re doing. Raving about it is incredibly easy for me.

B) It feels so good to show off some of the magic that happens between members: the supportive discussions and creative collaborations. Our ability to foster this sort of connecting is what I’m most proud of.

C) I got to put on my video editor hat! Something I haven’t done in years. It was awesome getting to use those skills again. Such a fun project.

Even if you don’t ever join the Puttytribe, I hope you enjoy this video. I worked my butt off on it and I think it’s pretty neat. :)

    I only have a moment, but I just read your message and watched your video. I reeeally liked it. Good flow, all of the right pieces of information in order to get an idea of what this place is like. You were very authentic (well, I can’t remotely imagine you being inauthentic, but you just came across as very natural and at ease). Great editing, too!

    Great Awesome Factor (remember that?). I give it 12.5 thumbs up!

    Hi Emilie, this is the first time I see you talking about the Puttytribe – I mean, the first time I watch a video and hear your “real” voice, instead of reading your newsletter.
    I love your vibe! You’re so sincere and it is so clear how much you believe in this project. Keep on!

    I have been really confused (and to be honest a little disappointed) because I thought being part of the Puttytribe simply meant you got email notifications about your blog posts, which I do love getting but still made me very confused about all the hype. Thank you for clearing this up with this video. I’m very keen to get more involved.

    Was always confused about myself until I seen your TED video.
    Now I seem to decode myself even better.

    Hi Emilie.
    I’ve read your book “How to be everything” and was so empowered for tears to come down from my eyes.
    So far, I’ve loved the way my curiosities guided me throughout my life but felt a little bit the strangeness about myself. I was trying not to lose myself and confidence and figure out who I am to get back my belief in me.

    Like you, my teacher once told me, “what you have as your character was so unique and your way is very different from other ones. Not being able to stop your eyes looking around the world is your talent.” Although I believed in what he was saying , but because of my Imposter Syndrome his words made me feel that what he feels if he saw “real me”. I could not give myself to permit myself live the life as I am.

    I’m 21 and an undergraduate student in Tokyo, Japan and has faced many challenges especially related to my identity. As I wanted to be seen normal and be into the circle of my friends, i have tried to be natural and hide my real thoughts or desires because it might get me way from other friends. I found myself losing where to go.

    Now I know, this is me and its ok to embrace real me.
    from today, I cherish my “multi potentialist” characters and enjoy the way as I am.

    Let me send you huge thanks to you and your book. thanks.
