Instead of one, full-time salaried position, Mark Herschberg has found success in his "portfolio career". The appeal? Flexibility, independence, and an ability to pursue passion projects.
With a professional journey in tech startups, teaching, writing & speaking, Mark Herschberg's Bucket List Career narrative differs from most this podcast features in that it doesn't have one big pivot. Instead, Mark's success and professional fulfillment stems from his ability to add careers in parallel. Mark then drew from this varied knowledge base and nearly twenty years of teaching at MIT’s “career success accelerator” program to also write a book that is apropos of what we do here at Bucket List Careers. His book is called The Career Toolkit, Essential Skills for Success That No One Taught You. This episode is for you if you're feeling lost and directionless in your career or would like to level up your skills, but don't know where to start!
