There were a couple reasons I really really liked the product, and a couple reasons why I am writing a review for my audience:
I think it is immensely useful for anyone looking to figure out “WTF” to do with their lives, as well as how to find meaning in all the interests you have but “don’t fit together.”
Emilie has an awesome approach to:
- Figuring out how to capitalize on having multiple interests, passions, and things you want to pursue / do in life
- Realizing that you aren’t nuts if you have tons of projects you start and stop and you are constantly bouncing around — you are just putty-like — a multipotentialite
- Honing in on the underlying theme, the trend that flows through everything you do (even if it seems like total chaos and like you are a typical college kid with travel ADHD)
Personal Meditations on Renaissance Business.
As a guy who writes a lot about having a purpose to life (and giving life meaning) I thought I had a lot of good resources for helping people figure out the “Who the fuck am I?” feeling.
Emilie one-upped me.
I fall into her multi-potentialite category, definitely.
I have various interests, some I’ve stuck with and some that have fallen by the wayside. Some activities I’m consistent in, and some I have serious ADD in. I’m human.
When I first started writing a blog I wanted to do two things: help a lot of people, and make a location-independent living.
There were more than a couple niches I have a good amount of experience in — my current niche, as well as travel, fitness, and generic personal development.
I’ve spent a lot of hours learning a ton about those categories, so I didn’t know what type of blog to start — so I went with what I thought was most important — helping lost 20 somethings find purpose in life and learn to make bold decisions that will make their lives epic.
But when I meditated on the exercises she gives in Renaissance Business, I realized that there actually are underlying themes that unite all of my interests. They aren’t all random and meaningless.
That’s where Renaissance Business stands out.
Imagine having a business that allows you to focus on many of your interests and use all of your skills on a regular basis.
In Renaissance Business, you’ll learn to use your multipotentiality so that instead of it being an obstacle to income, it becomes fuel for income.
But first, maybe you can relate to this…
My resume reads like it belongs to ten different people.
Music, film, web design, law, business, personal development, writing, dance, sexuality, education– all of these are or have been interests of mine. They come and go (and sometimes come again).
I remember being a little kid, not knowing what I would be when I grew up. I wondered the same thing in my teen years, and again in college. Sure, all of my interests would make for wonderful careers– just not on their own.
Would I have to settle on a “practical job” and pursue my various passions on the side or choose among my interests and just commit to one thing?
Both options made me my heart ache… I knew I could be doing more– that I had more to offer the world.
Renaissance Business is the story of how I brought all of my interests together, and how you can do the same.
