The Manifesto for the Multi-Passionate.
Corrie Ann Gray
I bet you’re a multi-passionate writer or entrepreneur, right? That’s who is generally attracted to my work. I also bet you aren't quite sure what to do in a world of specialty, and the “pick one thing” mentality doesn't fit. You’re creative, love to learn, and still struggle to find what some people call "your true calling." You’re constantly told to find a “real” job and stay focused, and yet what you want is:
You want to tell the world, “This is me people, take it or leave it!” Wouldn’t that feel good? You’re grounded in a reality of uniqueness, and you crave being able to express this in your work and life. Rather than being a Specialty John or Jane you want to dabble in a few things and see where it takes you. You want to show your family and friends that you’re smart, capable, hardworking and confident enough to go after your dreams, no matter what.
You dream of a life of freedom to express yourself and yet deep down you feel like you would be letting people down. You still have that j-o-b mentality that was taught to you as a child and can’t seem to let it go for fear of failure (or is it success?).
You feel like you will never find your place and end up being a Jack of all trades and a master of none. You have gotten to the point of not starting anything new (even though you want to) because, in the end, you know you won’t finish it.
When it comes to your writing or your business (or the thought of doing either), you can’t imagine being pinned down to just one thing, like all of today’s business advice tells us to do. All you can believe is how boring that’s got to be.
Then, and this is a big one, when you do decide you want to take the leap, you have no idea where to start, what idea to work on first, and how to package yourself as an honest to goodness entrepreneur. It’s stressful just thinking about it.
I was in your shoes for many years and struggled to find what I was looking for in my career. The problem was, I settled for the tedious corporate job. I worked a 9-to-5 job for way too long, but I always had a side gig of some sort that allowed me to practice my creativity, strategic thinking, and future-oriented reality. I would sit in business meetings and think about what my next business venture would be, or write down all the development courses I wanted to take to teach me something new. Don't get me wrong - I loved my career as an HR professional - I was good at it too, but it was like being a fish out of water. I knew there was more for me.
It took many years, a lot of work with coaches and mentors, and massive amounts of self-reflection for me to find my calling - what I am meant to do in this lifetime. I had done all the work, and yet it wasn’t until I was sitting quietly in my home office, staring at a list of my strengths that I realized that I was doing my calling already, I just hadn't packaged it the way I needed it to be. Funny how that happens.
I’ve owned five different business, in addition to being a freelance professional writer for 30+ years. In every single case, I was a visionary strategist. I could envision the future of my company and create successful strategies for getting it there. Along with my ability to learn new technology and skills, and maximize the efforts of others, I’ve been able to move away from “office worker” to full-time, multi-passionate writer and entrepreneur.
I’m married to my best friend, Anthony Fragoso, who keeps me motivated to be my best. We live in beautiful Northern California surrounded by trees, lakes, and tranquility. In the marriage package, I was gifted with two grown children and six grandchildren (and I’m only 51 years old, but I love it!).
I am also known as The Renaissance Soul Writer in addition to my training and certification in career, life purpose, lifestyle, and integrative nutrition health coaching.
I love what I do and love even more guiding other multi-passionates to find their place in the entrepreneurial world. If I can do it, there’s no reason why you can’t either with a little direction (I’m good at that).
I help frustrated, overwhelmed and confused multi-passionate writers and entrepreneurs build successful and thriving businesses, bringing their many talents with them. My mission is to guide you to take your thoughts and ideas and turn them into realistic and abundant outcomes.
Like one of my favorite scanners/Renaissance Souls, Barbara Sher, states, you can “refuse to choose.” I hope you join me on this visionary journey so that we can turn your dreams into reality.
