This post is contrary to what a lot of “experts” say. I don’t buy the idea that we are all just one thing. A photographer, a musician, a social media enthusiast… Yes, I am ALL of those things. I believe most people have multiple passions, even if they don’t see themselves that way.
Common wisdom: Find your niche, stick to it.
My take on it: Define a few niches, and focus on them.
I AGREE with the common wisdom of finding a niche and focusing on IT. That concept helped me make a career in television as a young man. However, I have always been a person with several “irons in the fire”: video production, photography, music, writing, travel. That is who I am, and I ENJOY pursuing multiple avenues at once. I realized a long time ago that each of them had to be defined in themselves.
