Hello friends, my name is Jack Raines, and I’m writing a guest piece for Tim this week. I also write a newsletter, Young Money, where I cover all things investing, finance, and careers. You can check it out here. Hope you guys enjoy today’s piece! Hyper-specialization has been the name of the game in the 21st century labor force.
Hi, Jack via Tim. I've been a generalist all my life: amateur astronomer, ESL instructor and tutor, computer systems trainer, course curriculum and lesson writer, fiction and non-fiction editor, special needs student tutor, house cleaner, professional organizer. I keep learning new skills in each to keep my "value" high.
As a master of some myself, I loved this! Good stuff Jack!
Validation! I NEEDED this so much. And have often used your title to describe my own self. Thank you.
Yes this i experienced, I am in the same space now. Writer, author, blogger, teacher, website promoter .
Well written and very thought provoking. I have been trying to tell myself some of these things. For starters, it's okay to have a curious mind, its okay to pursue almost all the subjects that piques your interest.
It might seem difficult at first, but what makes it interesting is if you have fun doing it. The important message here is to make sure you're doing what you love. Any skill is learnable.
