For many people today, the traditional career approach to professional success and life satisfaction doesn’t work. While we are pressured to choose one single direction and work in a linear way towards that goal, the truth is that we aren’t wired that way—many of us (maybe most) don’t have “one true calling.” Rather, we have a range of diverse interests and many interlocking potentials. Entrepreneurial expert and creative career coach Emilie Wapnick argues that this “multipotentiality” is actually our biggest strength, especially in today’s uncertain job market. Instead of resisting our wandering curiosity and seemingly unrelated interests, she encourages us to embrace our diverse passions and skills, and channel them to work for us.

In How to Be Everything, Emilie introduces a simple method of identifying the best career fit for each reader’s unique personality and provides exercises to identify the possible logistical and emotional hurdles that can stand in the way of success. She supplies concrete tools to recognize and develop creative career ideas, as well as inspiration and advice for coping with the anxiety inherent in diverting from a more conventional career path. Emilie clearly and comfortingly guides readers forward in today’s turbulent economy, while offering insights and solutions for a new generation of workers eager to abandon traditional school and work structures.

Not fitting neatly into a box can be a beautiful thing. Whether you are a recent graduate, a seasoned worker changing jobs in midlife, or newly retired and looking for the next challenge, How to Be Everything teaches you how to design a life that allows you to be fully you, and find the kind of work you’ll love.
