Story: Since I was a kid, say 9 yrs. old, my entrepreneurial spirit has been alive. My first business was “Mother’s Day Off”, a party planning business specifically for a child’s first birthday. Yet, even then the world said pick one thing, your passion, and all else will work out including the money. I had other passions, but chose organizational management over all the others.
Secretly I have regretted that decision. However as my career progressed, I would give my best effort to fit my passions in one box and was left feeling unfulfilled.
What has been defined as passion by gurus and regular folk just seemed to me to be a good work ethic. I accept that some need passion to stay committed, when things become challenging or mundane but that is not all people. Moreover, some peoples’ boats float by more than one interest.
Then over a two-day period I had headache, that would not go away. I medicated, self reflected and prayed. My answer was a confirmation of my passions. My headache was worsening. I felt like my interests were all in neon lights competing for attention like the lights of Las Vegas.
Then searching online I found a life coach who coined the term multi-passionate entrepreneur. The coach proceeded to describe her life and how finding a singular niche just didn’t work. Some way she figured out how to balance and combine her interests. She thrived and the money followed!
Finally an answer. I had a title, a name, and someone else in this big world to reference. RELIEF and CONFIRMATION. I am not crazy, scattered brained or any other descriptor implied by, “what are you doing now?”
I am Lorne Shelby Wellington. I am a Multi Passionate Entrepreneur and that is scrappy!
