Stop Obsessing on Perfect Job, Slash: 'One Person/ Multiple Careers'

Rather than drive ourself nuts by obsessing on trying to find the perfect job that will make ourselves happy why not switch our thinking to One Person/ Multiple Careers asks Marci Alboher whose book of the same name suggests that we "Follow Your Passions, Work on Your Own Terms and Create the Customized Career of Your Dreams".

As I learned after being injured in a work accident a few years back , even though most financial advisers preach the gospel of diversification, in our professional life we tend to bet everything on one number.

With 5 legs, if one fails I will not loose my balance.

Marci calls it Meet the "slashes".

Anne Zelenka explores the topic in Slash your Career on Web Worker Daily.
