The Internet and our phones mean we can work wherever, whenever, and allow us to design our own working lives.

Last half is the best

I found the first half incredibly repetitive.
And the lists about other multi hyphens can grate while listening to audio.

Then you get on to the chapters which have info and advice and this is why I downloaded the book. Emma has clearly done her research. I will be listening to those chapters again with a pen and paper next time round. This book might be better to buy a hard copy, so you can highlight bits that were relevant rather than the audio version.

A bit boring

What was said in a full book could have been said in a chapter. Very repetitive and not really any actionable ideas. Centred around city living and her own personal experienced, doesn't feel very well researched and broad. Bit boring really.

Listened all in one day!

So many helpful and informative points - the chapter on burn out was especially relatable!

I'm a Multi-Hyphener and Proud

Having left behind a full time corporate career and started my own venture/s, I have been earning a living from a few different revenue streams over the past number of years.

I dread being asked what I do for a living because it's complicated explaining that I work at 'this and that' and that I don't actually have a traditional 'full time job' or career any longer.

This book challenges the norm and outlines how Multi-Hyphened jobs are fast becoming the new means of making a living in the 21st Century.

"Today, the average person changes their job 5 times in their lives. In the future our children will be doing 5 jobs at the same time - and these haven't even been invented yet!"

A highly recommended read.

Repetitive and not very informative

Very little actual information and went over the same points again and again. The first half of the book could have been condensed into an introductory chapter.

Well researched

I always wanted a portfolio career and knew it was for me but couldn’t articulate the benefits into words, not shake of this feeling it’s all taboo. Emma brought so many aspects of this new way of working to her book. I’m now a fan and signed up to get podcast!

some interesting parts

overall I'm glad I listened to this book, and theirs some wisdom nuggets in here, but mixed in is also a lot of personal opinions come across as portrayed as fact. nevertheless I enjoyed it and look forward to hearing more from this author in the future

Meh, more useful if you’re stuck in the 9-5

A few other reviews very succinctly point out that this book is not very succinct. This is a shame. I would say this should be seen as a side hustle 101 rather than a much deeper inquisition.

Highly recommend for anyone looking to work outside the norm!

I have recently launched a side hustle as an event manager and I have been feeling a bit lost and unfocused. This helped set me on the right track and find a clear way to achieve my goals. I love Emma’s writing and listen to her podcast often- she is clear, concise and wise!
