9780446696975: One Person/Multiple Careers: A New Model for Work/Life Success

Are you a "slash"? With technology giving us the ability to work from anywhere and the nine-to-five grind becoming a thing of the past, more and more people are building careers filled with slashes.
From lawyer/chefs to police officer/personal trainers to mom/CEOs, these creative thinkers have discovered the antidote to boredom, burnout, job insecurity, and many other workplace woes. Filled with the stories of scores of those who have achieved financial and career success with "The Slash Effect," ONE PERSON/MULTIPLE CAREERS will show you how to:

  • Balance multiple careers without feeling overworked, and still have time for friends and family
  • Prepare a résumé, bio, or Web site that best presents your unique and varied talents
  • Use your current career to help you cultivate slashes
  • Negotiate a customized work arrangement with employers.

About the Author:

Marci Alboher is an author/speaker/coach. She became interested in career reinventions when she left the practice of law to become a freelance journalist. Marci is now a regular contributor to the New York Times, a sought-after speaker, and a coach to aspiring writers and professionals in transition.

From Publishers Weekly:

For those already slashing through multifaceted professional lives, Alboher's collection of profiles of people juggling multiple roles may offer the comfort of knowing others are doing the same. For those recently separated from a job or seeking greater fulfillment from life, Alboher's fascination with people working through dual existences may reveal an alternate path to success. Like the psychotherapist/violin maker she interviews, Alboher has abandoned an easily described career as an attorney to become a journalist, author, speaker and writing coach. Her book is less about making career changes than changing how one defines a career and making adjustments for a more satisfying life. After focusing a bit too intently on how multilayered careers get their start, she segues into more action-oriented advice, including experimenting with different identities before making career-altering changes; how to keep income flowing; and how to market oneself once one adds a slash or two to one's job description. When the disparate threads of one's life are woven together in this way, she argues in this creative and satisfying guide, "the whole of you comes out." (Feb.)
