Fungai Mettler is a new mom, a Social Impact Leader, a PhD student, a podcast host, the director of SwiZim Trust, a board member for Conscious Influence Hub, Witty Works and Friends for Matibi. Sounds like too much for one person?
It's not when you are a multi-passionate professional like her.
People have been telling Fungai to find one niche and stick to it well for as long as she can remember. But she had multiple, deep passions, and dropping any of them for the sake of focus didn't seem like her idea of thriving.
She realized she didn't fit in a conventional career box, had a million passions, interests, and hobbies that lit her up, and pursuing a single career sounded suffocating. So she decided to embrace all her talents and desires, and is now living the life she wants.
This love session is for all the multi-talented, multi-potentialities, scanners, polymaths, renaissance persons, and generalists out there: it's time you start believing YOU GET TO HAVE IT ALL!
YOU GET TO HAVE IT ALL. The journey of a multi-passionate professional
