Synopsis

Imagine if your work allowed you to use all your talents and pursue all your interests - not just the ones that pay your rent, but also the ones that float your boat. Sounds impossible right? It isn’t, as many successful men and women can now attest.

ONE PERSON/MULTIPLE CAREERS: A New Model For Work/Life Success by Marci Alboher charts a new path to career satisfaction: becoming a “slash.” Be they lawyer/ministers, recruiter/innkeepers, or CEO/moms, the true winners in today’s workplace are those who cultivate multiple passions, talents and income streams to create satisfying work lives. Celebrities like Bono and P. Diddy - with their boundary crossing reinventions - are emblematic of this new way to think about a career.

ONE PERSON/MULTIPLE CAREERS is the product of hundreds of in-depth interviews with people who have built fulfilling slash lives in the modern world of work. Blending compelling stories and real-world advice, this guide includes:
-Tricks for seamlessly acquiring new skills while managing an existing career
-Tips for better tackling time management
-Innovative ideas for creating business cards, resumes and websites that properly portray a slash-filled life
-Secrets for creating and capitalizing on the synergies that exist between seemingly unrelated careers.
