The Rise of The Generalist, with Milly Tamati, Founder of Generalist World

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.
