If you’ve been itching to convert your craft into a career, your side-hustle into a start-up, or just want to think about work-life balance in a new way, then The Multi-Hyphen Life is for you.

In The Multi-Hyphen Life, award-winning British author-podcaster explains that it doesn’t matter if you’re a part-time PA with a blog, or an accountant who runs an online store in the evenings–whatever your ratio, whatever your mixture, we can all channel our own entrepreneurial spirit to live more fulfilled and financially healthy lives. Technology enables us to work from anywhere, at any time, and to build our own working lives. Forget the outdated stigma of “jack of all trades, master of none,” because having many strings to your bow is essential to get ahead in the modern working world. We all have the skills necessary to work less and create more, and The Multi-Hyphen Life is the source of inspiration you need to help you navigate your way toward your own definition of success.

Let’s dive right in!

Key Points

Starting a Business is Sacrifice
  • When you start a business it’s a sacrifice and it’s not easy and never going to be . You will be using more of your time to do more work. In this book it was mentioned that just because it is hard doesn’t mean it’s a bad decision.
  • When you’re in the messy middle it’s really hard. This is the part where you try to do all the things from creating content to putting your brand out there. It’s messy but you can get through this when you have focus. Prioritize and make sure to manage your time well.
 
Embrace your Own Unique Magic Powers
  • You are the center and you can bring your unique self to the center.
  • Think about your unique qualities or ask your family and friends about it.

 

Reclaim Your Time
  • Reclaiming your time should always be a factor of work and life today.
  • We should not treat having flexible work opportunities like a privilege for only a select few people. Everyone should be able to own their time in the way that they want. It helps with the burnout factor.
  • Reclaiming those small amounts of time and scheduling what you should do with that helps you recharge your entrepreneurial battery.

 

This book was enlightening and extremely helpful in considering different income sources and how to create a routine that suits your lifestyle. It acknowledges that the world of work is changing and teaches you how to take hold of it and make the best of your career, whether it’s calling for flexible working hours at your present job, exploring burnout culture with advice on how to stop it, or giving you that much-needed inspiration to turn your side hustle into a start-up.

I have been listening to Janine's podcast for a little over a month, and I find both her and the podcast inspiring. The information she provides to new writers is informative and useful. I also enjoy the variation in lengths of the podcasts; it ranges from around 10 to 60 minutes depending on the episode. Janine is enthusiastic and wants to see others succeed, which is encouraging for a novice writer.
