Wondering why I started this blog? As a multi-passionate creative, I used to be plagued by the idea that success meant choosing one thing and sticking with it. The problem was choosing just “one thing” left me unable to show up in the world as my most authentic, full self. One day I woke up and decided to finally embrace and share all of my gifts. My next thought: I should start a blog as a space for my passions to play. Needless to say, I never looked back. 

psst. over here.

I’m a proud multi-passionate creative and the first time I heard that term, I literally got chills down my spine. That’s one way to tell if you’re a multi-passionate. The combination of words alone will give you that “finally- I know what to call myself!” feeling. But how else can you tell if you’re a multi-passionate creative, rather than a person who simply has many interests?

When your clients sing your praises, but you’re convinced they’re just mistaken, that’s imposter syndrome. When you’ve finished that program, but still don’t feel qualified? Imposter syndrome. This blog post will walk you through 4 steps to overcome that pesky feeling holding you back from showing up.

How many times have you had a great idea, got things in motion, and then ran out of steam? A new project feels so exciting in the beginning right?! (I see you nodding your head.)

Much like burnout, creative exhaustion is an unshakable feeling of overwhelm and anxiety that occurs from committing to too many creative projects at one time. These commitments can be your personal projects, collaborations, client work, or a mix of all of the above.

Multi-Passionate Creatives on the Rise is an interview series featuring solopreneurs and side hustlers, who’ve achieved success while pursuing multiple ventures.

Today is my 30th birthday. I may not be on the Forbes 30 under 30 list, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t celebrate everything I’ve accomplished up to this point.

When I think of community, I think of safety, comfort, encouragement, and showing up consistently to connect. How could I create that, not just for myself, but for all the people who were waking up to the fact that they too are multi-passionate creatives? It’s not enough to write about starting a tribe, or wishing for one and hoping it will manifest. I knew I had to take action and make it happen.

If our culture is all about embracing diversity than why does being multi-passionate still make our society so uncomfortable? Why are we plagued by the phrase, “Jack of all trades, master of none?”   There has to be a more inclusive outlook.
