'Do we have to choose one specialty or can we release the need to find 'our one true passion'?'
Every week on the SPARKED podcast, we invite a listener to share what’s going on in their work & life, then pose a specific question to Jonathan Fields and a rotating lineup of wise and kind mentors - the SPARKED Braintrust.
In today’s episode we’re in conversation with:
SPARKED BRAINTRUST ADVISOR: Charlie Gilkey | Website
Charlie is a strategic advisor and executive coach, founder of the Productive Flourishing consultancy, and author of the multi-award-winning book, Start Finishing.
LISTENER: Hilde - Sparketype: Advisor/Sage, Anti: Maker & Essentialist
QUESTION: Listener, Hilde, asks an interesting question that we know a lot of multi-passionate folks ask themselves, do you have to choose one area to focus on or specialize in? Hilde shares her experience of taking the leap into coaching and entrepreneurship and it not going as smoothly as she’d hoped. Now back in the corporate space and bolstered by the leadership feedback loop, she’s plotting her next move. Hilde poses the query, if you’re marketing yourself as a coach or mentor, do you need to have a niche or a special area of interest? Or can you embrace the multi-passionate approach.
