As someone who's been writing about work-life balance and everything in between for some 8 years, I've always been fascinated by people and their career and life paths. Finding out why people went into a certain direction, made specific decisions, the timing of things and how luck (or fate) plays a role in that. As they say, life is what happens when you're busy making other plans, a famous and much-loved quote. And life and work are exactly that, every single time when you think you have all your ducks in a row, life throws you another curveball. It's how you manage those and well, keep everything afloat. That's the real work-life balance. How to make the decisions in work and life that make you feel good about yourself? How to feel like you're doing good for others? How to feel creative? How to feel productive? How to just be happy and content?
For that reason, I will start an interview series with women who do more than one thing, women who have multiple side-hustles, jobs, higher callings, titles or professions. Whatever you want to call it, it'll be interviews with women who are multi-hyphen ass-kicking women. They might be digital nomads, photographers, freelancers, corporate tigers, philosophers, adventure-seekers and more. In each interview, I want to find out what advice has helped them, which failures taught them the most and why the multi-hyphen way works for them.
Whatever they are, they have one thing in common. They don't fit into one category. But now they do.
