Goodreads: If you've been itching to convert your craft into a career, your side-hustle into a start-up, or just want to think about work-life balance in a new way, then The Multi-Hyphen Life is for you.
In The Multi-Hyphen Life award-winning British author-podcaster Emma Gannon explains that it doesn't matter if you're a part-time PA with a blog, or an accountant who runs an online store in the evenings—whatever your ratio, whatever your mixture, we can all channel our own entrepreneurial spirit to live more fulfilled and financially healthy lives.
Technology allows us to work wherever, whenever, and enables us to design our own working lives. Forget the outdated stigma of “jack of all trades, master of none,” because having many strings to your bow is essential to get ahead in the modern working world. We all have the skills necessary to work less and create more, and The Multi-Hyphen Life is the source of inspiration you need to help you navigate your way toward your own definition of success.
Kritters Thoughts: A book I enjoyed via audio which was narrated by the author. Emma Gannon has been on my radar with her podcast as I follow other UK influencers that are in her circle. When I saw this book was coming out, I was intrigued to hear her thoughts on how people my age can approach their work lives in different ways than our parents did.
There were many moments where Emma's thoughts on work life really vary from my experience and the work life that I enjoy, but I appreciated hearing her side of things as they challenged my traditional viewpoints.
And on the opposite side there were things she discussed about a side hustle that doesn't need to pay, but can bring value to your life and I immediately thought about books and this blog and although it doesn't pay the bills, it does bring me joy and an outlet for some of my time and energy.
This was a short and quick listen and I enjoyed dipping in and out of it. I always like it when the author reads their own work as they can emphasize the moments in the book that matter to them most.
Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
