as Penelope Trunk says
“A portfolio career is not the same thing as holding down three bad jobs and wishing you could figure out what to do with yourself. Rather, it is a scheme you pursue purposefully and positively, as a way to achieve financial or personal goals or a mixture of both. This new type of career choice can include several highly skilled, professional posts, often mixing employment with self-employment, and volunteer work or learning work with fee-based work.”
We use this quote to start our book on portfolio careers because it simply says what a portfolio career is and what the benefits are. Trying to explain to people there is another way to find fun, freedom and fulfilment. We will start to blog some of the book in the next month or so.
