Would you like to find work that uses all your skills and passions? That can help you experience a great work/life blend? And that is flexible enough so you can thrive in difficult economic times? If your answer is yes, we encourage you to consider a portfolio career - essentially, doing two or more jobs for different employers. It begins by reframing work around you and playing to your greatest strengths. Part-time, full-time, working for yourself and/or for an organisation, the choice is yours. In the UK, at least a million people are already experiencing the benefits of a portfolio career. In 10 practical steps, this book encourages you to explore another way to find health, happiness and fulfilment in your work. Advance praise for And What Do You Do?
