Tom Schwab spent the first part of his career in the military. He then moved into sales and marketing for Fortune 500 companies. Now he’s working in the digital marketing space, helping entrepreneurs to get their messages out and grow their businesses!

Multi-talented, Multi-passionate, Multipotentialites with Emilie Wapnick

Does the idea of having just “one true calling” seem a little too limited for you? Do you find yourself being drawn to a variety of different career options? You might be a multipotentialite! In her last year of law school, when she decided that she didn’t want to become a lawyer, Emilie Wapnick began studying entrepreneurship.  Frustrated by her own inability to settle on a single “calling”, she founded Puttylike.com as an online resource and community for multipotentialites like herself.  She believes that multipotentialites have the responsibility to innovate and may even hold the key to solving some of the world’s biggest problems. She’s even delivered a TED talk on the subject!
