Now, she runs her own company and offers various services to small and large businesses. She has transformed the way she works. She is happy and energised and found the time to write the book she has longed to write. This book gave her the skills, the know how and the confidence to do so.
This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to break free from their corporate chains and realise their true potential. It's made a huge difference to the way she manages the multiple strands of her life and career.
What struck me , however, was that such a life, with a collection of part-time jobs, was more practical in the UK than here in the U.S., because workers there would not have to worry about health care benefits. But now that health care reform has passed in the U.S., maybe what the authors, Hopson and Ledger, call a Portfolio Career may be more possible here. Since the Recession of 2007, I've read a few articles about workers who have no choice but to collect a portfolio of jobs because they can't get their full-time positions back. Or those positions were eliminated, never to return. So, the timing of this book's publication in the U.S. might be exactly right.
