Listen to my recent interview on the Portfolio Career podcast, where we talk about my Full-Stack Freelancer Model and the emerging trend of people creating portfolios of multiple income streams, instead of a single monolithic job:

Here’s the episode from the podcast website:


This conversation is with Tiago Forte. Tiago is a thought leader and practitioner in this emerging portfolio career sector. His viral blog post titled “The Rise of The Full-Stack Freelancer” had a big impact on me and many others. He recommends everyone to package their key learnings into products and digital assets as much possible, especially when leaving a job. He believes his true and somewhat evergreen job is a life-long learner. And to do so, he creates products and services from what he has learned. We talk about him leaving San Francisco to primarily explore his productivity methods as a digital nomad and try something new. And his online course, Building A Second Brain, that he is turning into a book for people dramatically enhance a meta-skill, knowledge management. There is A LOT here to build and grow your Portfolio Career. Tune in and let’s have some fun!

And the way I fund my learning is by packaging up what I have learned into products” -“You can handle anything as long as your mind is free and clear” -“The ability to make things will be fundamental to your identity, your reputation online, fundamental to entrepreneurship, to freelancing…” -“Think in terms of chunks” -“Every 6-18 months since then, I change what I am doing pretty dramatically”
