It’s not like you can go to a career counselor and ask how to become a filmmaker-scientist-teacher-artist-nutritionist. Most will look at you like you’re insane, and then “kindly” explain that “we all have to choose eventually…” You’ve probably had similar discussions with friends and family members.
How do you pull all of your interests together to build a sustainable, beautiful, multifaceted life? How do you actually make a living while doing EVERYTHING you love?
When you’re stuck on a problem, where do you go for guidance and accountability? What’s your action plan if your business, career or life feel like they’re just not moving forward? Do you have people in your life who understand how you are wired and respect your multiple passions—even people who have made this work themselves?
The Puttytribe is a space for multipotentialites of all ages, cultures, locations, and levels. We brainstorm, help each other with our many projects, collaborate, co-work, and learn from one another. It's a really warm place, where everyone understands "what you're up to" when you have a dozen projects or jump from passion to passion. We're a truly global community of over 600 multipotentialites and we'd love for you to join us!
One of the most important gifts I've received from the Tribe is much more clarity on how to pull together seemingly disparate careers/interests and better brand myself thematically. Or basically, how to not be paralyzed by the "So, what do you do?" cocktail question.
I can’t imagine what people who aren't in the Puttytribe do to get their projects up and running! Seriously, I have no idea what my life would be like if it weren’t for the Puttytribe. I’ve launched blogs, made friends all over the world, written books, and finally got myself into a daily routine that makes me happy because of the Puttyribe. Heck, I wouldn’t have been earning my living online for the past two years if it weren’t for the help of the people in there! I am so, so grateful that I came across it when it did. It’s life-changing.
The biggest thing the Puttytribe has done for me is create a community I know I can reach out to for help and advice. People who get where I’m coming from. We’re a very diverse group, but there’s a sense of camaraderie here that I haven’t found anywhere else. Lately, my kids have been battling cold after cold. They’ve been home from school, and I’ve had a lot of time offline just sitting, reading, and holding them. My accountability group in the Puttytribe helps motivate me to carve out time to keep my goals on track despite the scheduling setbacks.
The comments I got in the Puttytribe critiquing my website were phenomenal. I was absolutely blown away by the level of insight everyone had. I was expecting answers that were much more broad, but people really took the time to go into detail. I’m really grateful to be part of the group in there. Honestly, I love it!
Prior to the Tribe, I’d never met people who understood what I was talking about when I described my interests and challenges. It's a safe community where people can open up and really discuss problems; that's a rare and special thing. I'm still surprised at how quickly members get comfortable with each other and have genuine openness.
The Puttytribe is everything it says on the tin; a warm, vibrant community of like-minded people. People who will hold you accountable to your goals and dreams, people who will never dismiss you for being different. But there’s one surprising aspect of Puttytribe that never gets mentioned – it increases synergy. I can’t tell you how many opportunities Puttytribe has brought me; opportunities to teach, opportunities to learn, it’s given me a mastermind group, and a blogging support group. I’ve been okay with my multipod identity for years, and I really didn’t know what Puttytribe would do for me. But my goodness, it’s tremendous what a group of square pegs can accomplish when they don’t have to first demonstrate why the round hole doesn’t work. We just do it!
Before joining the Tribe, I felt very anxious, unsure, and alone. I had a lot of ideas and things I wanted to do, but I lacked the support and guidance to feel justified in putting them into action. The Tribe has been a huge help to me, emotionally and ambition-wise. Everyone I’ve met here has been super-supportive and very understanding of my ups-and-downs. It’s a safe place for me to express myself, experiment with ideas, and even admit when things aren’t going as well as I’d like. I credit the community with giving me courage to try my ideas and giving me space to grow as a person. I don’t think I could’ve gotten my Etsy shop open if not for the huddles and support I found here.
