How Would You Like a Career Based on Your Passions?
Joseph Campbell (1904 – 1987) was a foremost US mythologist, writer and lecturer. He is remembered for some wonderful quotes – here are two in particular:
Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls
Passion will move men beyond themselves, beyond their shortcomings, beyond their failures
Inspirational words I’m sure you will agree? So, how would it be if you added ‘Pleasure‘ and ‘Profit‘ to ‘Passion’ and changed your working lifestyle by creating your own Portfolio Career, based around the 3Ps of Passion, Pleasure & Profit?
How does that now sound?
What is a Portfolio Career?
Portfolio Careers come in all ‘shapes and sizes’. If you search on the internet, you will come across various definitions of a portfolio career. However, I have found few that really answer the question in a way that sits comfortably with me. They either mention having ’multiple jobs’, rather than just one job, are just plain vague or veer off into ‘HR speak’. So here is my definition which I use all the time, when asked the question:
A portfolio career, in simplistic terms, is about deriving income from a number of different sources
However, consider a portfolio career also:
It’s about changing your mindset from having a more conventional job to securing an income by using any combination of activities, interests, skills, talents and passions to create the working lifestyle you want, which could also include voluntary work. This is what I call working for Passion, Pleasure and Profit, or the 3 Ps
