Have you heard of portfolio careers? – I think the concept is really about building a portfolio life!

Marianne Cantwell gives great advice. In this article (aimed at people in their 20-30’s) Marianne explains the benefits of a portfolio career. She says you need lots of energy.

I have lots of energy and enthusiasm for a variety of interests….Is a portfolio career/life for you?
Perfectionists might find that a portfolio career is stressful…. to combat stress be sure to prioritise what is important to you; for me, that means prioritising the customer’s interests. I think this Zig Ziglar quote is apt: ‘You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want’.
Do you have multiple interests, learn quickly, multitask and find the idea of being restricted to ‘just one thing’ — even your favourite thing — is the worst thought in the world?
Then a portfolio career might be right for you…do please comment below to let me know your thoughts…
