A really useful book.,
This review is from: And What Do You Do?: 10 Steps to Creating a Portfolio Career (Paperback)
This book looks at the increasing trend to 'sell' your skills and talents to 'clients' rather than working for an employer. It looks at the ups and the downs of portfolio working and has great diagnostics to find out if it's for you. It also helps you understand what is important to you and what your strengths are.
It's bang up to date technology wise, with great networking and marketing strategies which lever off new social media as well as good old fashioned `personal brand` building ideas.
Finally, the book is brimming with practical snippets of advice and stories to bring all the ideas life.
I'm a portfolio worker myself and I've learnt some of these lessons the hard way - I wish there was a book like this when I took the plunge.
