If you are a multipotentialite, do you prefer to cycle through interests or do a whole bunch of different things at once? In this week's episode of Embracing Intensity, I discuss my own tendencies when it comes to pursuing multiple passions and why I'm moving from a lot of varied activities at once to focusing on just a small few. 

In this episode, I discuss:

  • Rainbow people vs. specialists.
  • Where I'm a specialist.
  • Learning about our learning. 
  • How you can join our upcoming group call on the Embracing Intensity Journey!
