To listen to the full interview, press play below.
Emilie Wapnick celebrates the “multipotentialite” — those of us with many interests, many jobs over a lifetime, and many interlocking potentials.
Emilie Wapnick has been a musician/songwriter, a web designer, filmmaker, writer, law student and entrepreneur. “This is how I’ve always lived,” she writes, “moving from interest to interest, building on my skills in different areas, and synthesizing the knowledge I acquire along the way.”
As a career and life coach, she helps other people with creative and varied interests understand and appreciate who they are, in a society that asks us to pick a lane and stay in it. What do you want to be when you grow up? Well, if you’re not sure you want to do just one thing for the rest of your life, you’re not alone.
