Hey, Marie.
Hey Greg.
What do you call a happy cowboy?
I don't know, what?
A jolly rancher.
Hey, it's Marie Forleo and you are watching
MarieTV, the place to be to create a business

and life that you love.
So if you're wondering how to do all the
things that you love without looking like

a flake, this one is for you.
Today's question comes from Tanya and she

“Hello amazing Marie and team.
I adore the show and how you make business

You're a breath of fresh air in a stuffy
business world.

Here's my Q. You went from the stock market
to life coaching, dancing, workout videos,

to what you do now.
Like you, I'm multipassionate and I've
had many different niches through my journey

in entrepreneurship, yet they all build upon
each other.

I see my changing directions as a way to find
my true calling, yet others just see it as

proof that I'm confused.
So the question is, how do you bridge from
one thing to the other without looking flaky

to your followers?
Thanks, Tanya.”
Tanya, this is such a great question and I
know in my heart that so many people that

watch the show can relate.
So we're gonna give you some actionable
strategies in just a few minutes.

But first, for anyone who's new to that
phrase multipassionate, that's a term that

I coined way back in the early 2000's because
I was having a hard time fitting myself into

a conventional career box.
You know, there were so many things that I
was pursuing like life coaching and dance

and fitness and writing and speaking and it
was all under this umbrella of entrepreneurship.

But here's the thing, I constantly felt
ashamed and self conscious when people at

parties would ask, “What do you do?”
That is when I came up with that term.
I'm a multipassionate entrepreneur.
And seriously, it was like the clouds parted
and the angels sang.

The truth is, many of us have multiple strengths
and passions but we never give ourselves permission

to explore and cultivate them.
But I've gotta tell you, some of our greatest
cultural icons have.

A classic is Leonardo Da Vinci, the Italian
polymath whose interest included invention,

painting, sculpting, architecture, science,
music, math, engineering, literature, anatomy,

geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history,
and cartography.

And sometimes he's even credited with the
invention of the parachute and the helicopter

and the tank.
Then there's one of my favorite women of
all time, the incomparable Maya Angelou.

Maya danced at a strip joint, then she ran
a brothel, she mastered several languages,

published not just poetry but also advice
books and cookbooks and children's stories.

She danced professionally, she wrote music
and plays and screenplays and she received

an Emmy nomination for her acting in Roots.
And she was an activist who worked with Martin
Luther King to organize the poor people's

march in Memphis, Tennessee.
And then, of course, there's James Franco:
actor and director and visual artist and author

of a book of short stories, teacher at NYU,
UCLA, and a high school.

And if you look him up on Wikipedia, the section
on “other projects” is real long.

So the question is, how do you make all the
things make sense together?

Well, here are 6 ideas for you to consider.
Now, some might seem conflicting, so you just
choose what is most relevant to you.

Number one is embrace your flake.
You've got to be real about your journey.
Just own the fact that you've enjoyed a
very rich and diverse path and if you want

to keep experimenting with different ideas,
just be real about that too.

Stop being ashamed of who you are, woman.
Whether you're just legitimately confused
about what you want to do or you're just

genuinely interested in having multiple businesses
or parts of your career.

You've got to own it.
You've got to love it.
You've gotta hug up on it.
Number two, position it properly.
So realize that you get to choose how you
position anything, like who you are as a human

being and your journey.
You get to frame your experience both for
yourself and for the world.

So what's the story you're going to tell?
Are you going to position your multi passionate
nature as a strength or as a weakness?

As something that makes you fantastic or something
that makes you a flake?

You can tell someone, “Uh.
I'm not really sure what I do.”
Or you could tell someone, “What don't
I do?”

Oh, she does it all.
She does all the jobs.
All of it.
Every single one.
Choice is yours.
Number three, I want you to play in private.
So you don't have to announce every time you're
going to try something new.

That way when you say you want to switch to
running a bakery you don't have to hear everyone

say, “What happened to training horses?”
Just because you can throw up a new website
or start a new Instagram account in like 4

minutes does not mean you should.
And if you do, you don't have to put out a
press release about it and tell the whole

I mean, it makes no sense to tell everyone
to look at you if you're not really ready

to be looked at quite yet.
In other words, play with yourself in private.
Number four, relish obscurity.
So chances are right now you are the most
unknown that you'll ever be in your whole

career, and that's not a bad thing.
That's a good thing.
So use this time to make mistakes and just
test stuff out.

Like, try random ideas.
You know, other businesses experiment, they
do test market things all the time.

They do things on a very small scale with
just a few people to see if a new idea or

product really has legs before they roll it
out on a large scale.

So use this time when you don't have a huge
audience watching your every move wisely.

Number five, and this is the big one, do not
try and turn everything into a business.

Oh my goodness, this is the biggest one of

All of you, my multipassionate muffins.
Have hobbies and have passions that you don't
try and earn a living from.

Look, you do not have to monetize everything
you do.

In fact, you shouldn't.
And do not try and cram everything into just
one business.

Not everything is going to fit together into
a narrative that makes sense for customers

or for you, so don't force it.
Let some of your passions be just that: passions
you do purely for the joy of it.

Number six, give zero ducks.
You know, I've got kids that follow this
show now so while you might be familiar with

another word that rhymes with ducks, here
we are sticking with ducks.

Tanya, it is time for you to stop giving so
many ducks about what other people think.

In fact, I think you should give zero ducks.
You know, you said other people think that
you're confused.

So what, my love?
If I cared what other people thought about
how many things that I wanted do, I'd still

be stuck on the floor of the New York Stock
Exchange, getting taken to strip clubs, and

doing shots of woo woo at, like, 4 pm every

Sorry, kids.
You know, at the end of day, it is your life.
You've gotta ask yourself, are you happy?
Are you fulfilled?
Who cares what other people think then?
Tanya, that was my A to your Q, clearly this
is a topic that I personally relate to so

I really do hope it helps.
And next time you find yourself feeling uncertain
and scattered, remember this: one of the biggest

keys to success is giving zero ducks what
other people think.

Now I would love to hear from you.
Have you ever felt that your multipassionate
nature has made you appear flaky or scattered?

How did you deal with it?
And for bonus points, who are some other multipassionate
people that you admire, whether they are living

or not?
