Emilie Wapnick is a writer, career coach, blogger, and community leader. She is the founder and creative director at Puttylike.com, where she helps multipotentialites (people with many passions and creative pursuits) integrate all of their interests to create dynamic, fulfilling, and fruitful careers and lives. Unable to settle on one path herself, Emilie studied music, art, communications, film production and law, graduating from the Law Faculty at McGill University.
Emilie’s TED talk has been viewed over 5 million times, and has been translated into 37 languages. She’s been featured in The New York Times, Fast Company, Forbes, The Huffington Post, BBC, and Lifehacker. Her book How to Be Everything: a Guide for Those Who (Still) Don’t Know What They Want to Be When They Grow Up, came out with HarperCollins in May 2017.
When she's not busy with her multipotentialite endeavors, Emilie likes cooking paleo food, taking her dog to the beach, and playing board games. Emilie lives in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia with her wife, Valerie, and their floppy grey schnauzer, Grendel.
