Just came across an unusually good blog post about people who are juggling multiple careers. The blog owner refers to “slasher careers” – you decide for yourself! They make it clear that their paths are not easy but they are living life on their own terms. Despite at least one wish for a corporate job, I think many of us would agree they’re better off than their counterparts who are still working in cubicles.
The story features …
… a 50-something computer expert who does stand-up comedy (that’s who I’d like to be!)
… a 61-year-old handwriting analyst who also became a successful author of murder mysteries
… a 40-year old who sells books online and writes trivial quizzes (and wishes he had a regular job)
… a 50-something massage therapist who’s also a writer, graphic artist and … well, see for yourself
a title company attorney who owns a beauty school
landscape designer who now has a company offering non-toxic pest control
They’re all role models of people who came to entrepreneurship reluctantly,yet found success to a greater degree than many who sought success with intentions.
