One life, multiple careers
We don’t dream the same dream each night. We can fall in love more than once.So why commit to one career for the remainder of our lives?
In certain industries, namely the entertainment industry, dual careers are very common. One may start off as a model and then slowly transition into the role of an actor and suddenly morph into a singer or fashion designer. We often don’t blink an eye at this type of a transition. It is some how acceptable and somewhat anticipated.
I have spoken with many professionals of late who are fulfilling two careers. Whether they are pursuing a role in accounting and real estate or teaching and I.T. to do this successfully, they have identified their transferrable skills, passion and interests. Without a doubt, they have great organizational skills. And above all, determination to succeed in both arenas.
