Are you interested in many different things, and if so, have you permitted yourself to be all of who you are? How do you build a (professional) life that allows you to be many things at the same time?
In this episode, Julienne and Jerome talk to Christina Wallace, a self-described human Venn diagram who has crafted a career at the intersection of business, technology, and the arts, teaches at Harvard Business School, and has recently published her book “The Portfolio Life: How to Future-Proof Your Career, Avoid Burnout, and Build a Life Bigger than Your Business Card”. Christina talks about her career path, which has been multidisciplinary and full of zigzags, and the models she has created to make that life work for her. She talks about the importance of allowing yourself to be different things, changing your path forward if something doesn’t work, and the two reasons why failure is so important. Christina also explains how applying business models to life can be tremendously helpful and can help you prevent burnout.
