In this episode I am speaking with Christina Wallace who is the author of The Portfolio Life: How to Future-Proof Your Career, Avoid Burnout, and Build a Life Bigger than Your Business Card. This book was written targeting millennials however, I think it is a worthwhile read for anyone at a crossroads in their career or life.
Here is a bit from her website about page:
A self-described “human Venn diagram”, Christina Wallace has crafted a career at the intersection of business, technology, and the arts. She is currently a Senior Lecturer at Harvard Business School, where she teaches entrepreneurship and marketing.
A serial entrepreneur, Christina has built businesses in e-commerce, ed-tech, and media. She also co-authored New To Big: How Companies Can Create Like Entrepreneurs, Invest Like VCs, and Install a Permanent Operating System for Growth and was the co-host of The Limit Does Not Exist, an iHeart podcast with millions of downloads over 3 seasons and 125 episodes.
I found the process that Christina writes about is excellent for anyone who is at a crossroads on what to do next. In some ways, it is more applicable to people in their 2nd half of life because they have more life experience to reflect back on.
If you are at a crossroads, then please give this episode your full attention.
