Review

“Feel-good, encouraging advice on distilling a variety of passions and interests into success. This book is chock full of great exercises and practical advice and we highly recommend picking up a copy. ” (Forbes)

“We are all unique, so why does there only seem to be one path towards success? How to Be Everything throws out this one-size-fits-all approach and explains how to make our diverse skills sets work for us. (Todd Rose, Harvard University scientist, co-founder and president of the Center for Individual Opportunity, and author of The End of Average)

“Emilie brings hope, tools, inspiration and affirmation to the most misunderstood and undervalued segment of our society: multipotentialites. I raise my fist in solidarity, and celebrate this groundbreaking book!” (Pamela Slim, author of Body of Work and Escape from Cubicle Nation)

“If you’ve struggled finding your place in a world that rewards conformity, you know that choosing a single profession isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. You’re no longer alone—Emilie’s HOW TO BE EVERYTHING is a beautiful guide with practical tools to help you find your way without losing yourself.” (Chris Guillebeau, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness of Pursuit and The $100 Startup)

How to be Everything helps you understand and process your diverse skills so you don’t have to sacrifice your potential. This book will help you fulfill your biggest dreams; all of them! (Buzzfeed)

“If you still don’t know what you’re doing with your life, Emilie Wapnick’s new book will make you feel better.” (Bustle)

“How to Be Everything is an empowering guide...This book is for the kind of people who can’t choose just one path because they aspire to be Art Directors + Restaurant Owners + Teachers + Best-Selling Authors + more all in this lifetime” (Darla Magazine) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

What do you want to be when you grow up? 

It’s a familiar question we’re all asked as kids. While seemingly harmless, it has unintended consequences. It can make you feel like you need to choose one job, one passion, one thing to be about. Guess what? You don’t. 

Having a lot of different interests, projects, and curiosities doesn’t make you a “jack-of-all-trades, master of none.” Your endless curiosity doesn’t mean you are broken or flaky. What you are is a multipotentialite: someone with many interests and creative pursuits. And that is actually your biggest strength.

How to Be Everything helps you channel your diverse passions and skills to work for you. Based on her popular TED talk “Why Some of Us Don’t Have One True Calling,” Emilie Wapnick flips the script on conventional career advice. Instead of suggesting that you specialize, choose a niche, or accumulate 10,000 hours of practice in a single area, Wapnick provides a practical framework for building a sustainable life around all of your passions.

You’ll discover:

•  How to identify the best career fit for your unique personality  

• How to make a living and structure your work around many interests, especially in today’s uncertain job market

• How to focus on multiple projects and make progress on all of them

• How to handle common insecurities, including the guilt associated with losing interest in something you used to love and the challenge of explaining “what you do” to others

Not fitting neatly into a box can be a beautiful thing. How to Be Everything teaches you how to design a life—at any age and stage of your career—that allows you to be fully you and find the kind of work you’ll love.

--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
