Many Puttypeep will recognize Marta Giani from her coaching sessions over the past couple years, where members of the community helped her gain experience while also having the opportunity to talk about their options and challenges for jobs, careers and, really, life in general.
Thanks to the help and support of her fellow Puttypeep, Marta is now on the verge of entering a new phase of her own career journey, and developing a life and career coaching business.
Our conversation today on The MultiPod between Marta, Vanessa and Ted touches on what attracted Marta to coaching, how it’s a great occupation for multipotentialites and how she balances her energy as an introvert, when coaching requires a lot of focus and concentration.
We talk about having the permission to explore hobbies and passions, and push back at the structured, working world which insists on specialization and mastery of skills.
However, Marta reveals that over the years she found it was she herself who was forcing her to conform to those stereotypes and expectations, more than outside pressures.
Letting go of that internal pressure, and allowing yourself to say no, has been a breakthrough as a multipotentialite at this stage of life and career.
