Multipassionate solopreneurs: next time you’re feeling down on your approach, read this. The piece that resonates: “I’m multipassionate not to be an expert of many things, or even to be an expert at nothing. I’m multipassionate because I’m curious, because I love learning, and I derive a soul-glowing satisfaction from my explorations.” Amen to that, sister.

      Carrie –
