Why would people with portfolio careers spread themselves so thinly? Answer: Like peanut butter, it tastes better and goes down easily.

Liked this take on Portfolio Careers from Dr Gary Goodman. He says;

My college Sociology teacher predicted that the average person to my right and left would engage in four or five careers in his lifetime.A radical thought, but it seems Dr. Quinn was prophetic.

What he didn’t predict, however, is that some of us would enjoy as many as four or five occupations, SIMULTANEOUSLY. But that is precisely what “Portfolio Careerists” are doing.

Risking the smear that “Jacks of all trades are masters of none,” PCs are finding ways to practice law, do some real estate transactions, consult, publish, and accept speaking engagements, not only in the same lifetime, but in the compass of a few weeks or months.

Do you think it’s a coincidence the Americans called it Skippy?
