What is a Multipotentialite? (a Video Message from Emilie)

“What is a multipotentialite?”

I get asked this question all the time, and I’ve decided to answer it in a video post today. Enjoy:

How YOU Can Help

Puttyfest is coming up on September 23-25. During these dates, I invite you to talk openly online about what it means to be a multipotentialite, and why it has been a positive force in your life. Lets get the internet to notice us through our blog posts, tweets, Facebook, etc.

By collaborating and sharing, you are helping to increase social-awareness and acceptance of multipotentialites around the world, something our community needs badly.

    As with your other videos, Emilie, I really enjoyed your latest. Thanks for putting yourself out there and promoting your multipotentialite concept which resonates with so many of us around the world.

    I love this and only recently (thanks to you) I realised this is why I’ve been stuck for so long! I am a multipotentialite and I am proud of it! Yey thank you Emilie – still working on my living and passions but I know its all work in progress and I no longer have to worry! Paula x

  3. I think this is the most powerful quick video on the subject of multipotentiality. I shared it at once after watching.

    I had these long conversations with two close friends recently about it and they turned out to be one of us! Wooh!

    I’m sharing your site to my friends as well here in the Philippines Emilie and they’re liking it so much.

    Happy Puttyfest! :D

  4. Great as always, Emilie:)! I’m going to share it on FB with an Italian translation, so my specialist friends will finally be able to understand what the heck I’m doing every day;) And I can’t wait of course to see how the Puttyfest will turn out!

    P.S. I don’t know if I love more your t-shirt or the Pacman ghost on the door in the background!

    • Emilie says:

      Haha awesome, Bianca!

      I’m impressed that you noticed both of those things! The thing on the door is actually a pacman ghost and this weird porcelain Mary. I own the former and my girlfriend owns the latter. They are pretty much the same colour, so we thought they would be funny together. :)

    Hi Emily, I really love your site and everything to improve the life of Scanners and Multipods or whatever name fits best. I also love Barbara Sher and it is always a good combination to follow you both!
    Did you know that there is Book Club for Barbara Shers Scanner Book “Refuse to choose”? Unfortunately the deadline to sign up is today, but fortunately I’m already in and there are so many amazing people, I’m all excited and impatient to get started :-) Here is the announcement and how you can sign up:
