One Person/Multiple Careers

Great new book out by Marci Alboher, One Person/Multiple Careers. It's filled with real life examples of people who move between multiple careers and still make time for friends and family. The author calls them people living slash lives, such as poet/computer programmer or real estate agent/musician.
Multiple careers seems like a great way to avoid burnout or to keep a safe job and venture into something more risky. But how do you overcome obstacles and negotiate work arrangements? Some tips from Alboher: keep multiple business cards, multiple resumes, and find slash-friendly employers.
A big advantage: A frustration or challenge in one type of work is offset by the complementary nature of an entirely different kind of work.
