Did you always wonder how to create a career you love based on your skills and passions? A portfolio career might be the way to go. πŸ€“

A portfolio career involves monetising your skills in many ways and having multiple income sources, rather than a single job at one company.

In the past this type of career was mostly dominated by senior executives, with former CEOs sitting on various boards, writing books, making speeches, etc.

Nowadays a portfolio career is available to almost anybody with skills that are in demand (plus decent wifi).

The entry point for those earlier in their careers is often freelancing, which involves providing a similar service to multiple companies as an outsourced employee. The more advanced portfolio professionals develop more unique personal brands and offerings, owning their own intellectual property and monetising their skills in multiple ways.

For instance, if you take an interest in writing and have experience as a full stack developer, you could spend part of your time creating new systems for a startup and part of your time creating website templates to sell on a platform.

A portfolio career can be any one of a million different combinations doing either broad or specialised work.

Ben will walk you through how to launch and successfully build your own portfolio career.
