What do you want to be when you grow up?
If someone told your 5 year-old self that you don’t have to choose just one calling, would things be different now? Emily Wapnick discusses this topic in her April 2015 TED Talk.
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 wide and varied interests understand and appreciate who they are, in a society that asks us to pick a lane and stay in it. Her work with “multipotentialites” has resulted in the book Renaissance Business and the interesting website Puttylike.
