40 Minute Mentor - Milly Tamati

“The traditional definition (of a Generalist) has been a ‘Jack of all trades’, which often comes with a negative connotation.”

In today’s bite-sized 40 Minute Mentor episode, we’re joined by Milly Tamati to explore the rise of the Generalist. 

Milly is not only a Generalist, but a Community builder and Founder of Generalist World

Before leaning into all things Generalist, Milly built businesses all over the world, including co-owning a hostel in Thailand, a wine tour in Australia and an illustration agency in the UK. 

Today, we explore: 

➡️ The making of her Generalist skill set  [01:33] 

➡️ Defining what a Generalist really is [03:53] 

➡️ Specialists vs Generalists [05:34] 

➡️ Ending the “Jack of all trades” narrative [08:15] 

➡️ Framing your Generalist career to employers [09:47]
