What are the best jobs for multipotentialites?
It’s a question that has been talked to death on the Puttyverse forum. But it’s a valid question, and there are many valid answers.
In this episode, we dive into this and explore the career move that Sara Oliver, co-host and co-producer of The MultiPod, made. She chose (for now) a career as a flight attendant in order to have a flexible job with steady income that would allow her to pursue her passion for art as well.
Vanessa tells us a little bit about her own multipotentialite journey and asks Sara all the questions about working in the airline industry. Vanessa and Sara talk about how there are many flexible jobs that can support a multipotentialite as they pursue their passions, and that having a job that is just “okay” can also be a positive thing and help support our passions in other ways.
