TID12: Why Diversifying your income is a wonderful thing - (Guest Robert Gerrish)

The Kate Toon Podcast

DO ONE THING WELL? ERM, NOPE. ​For so long, we’ve been sold the mantra of doing one thing well. We need to specialise. To niche. To stay in our lane. And avoid Shiny Object Syndrome at all costs. But what if there was a different way? I’ve spent the last few years diversifying my income, and actively following Shiny objects. But I’m judicious, there is method to my madness. In this episode I’ll tell you how I choose them, and when I lose them. My special guest is the fabulous Robert Gerrish of Flying Solo fame. His voice is like butter melting on wholewheat toast. Love his work.
