How can you Align your Passion and Growth Potential through Your Own Career Mashup?

The former model of career development was linear and sequential, advocating that the only way to achieve success was to pick a lane and stick to it. The future of work, however, has become much more fluid, and reinvention and pivoting have become common practice. Today we are joined by Connie Steele, executive consultant, podcast host, business and career strategist, marketer, and the author of Building the Business of You: A System to Align Passion and Growth Potential through Your Own Career Mashup. Connie has always been intrigued by the “why” behind careers that thrive, and today she introduces us to the concept of a career mashup. She talks about how there has been a fundamental shift in careers to be more fluid, collaborative, multi-dimensional, and more about individual agency. She discusses how people do this by parallel pathing their main job with a side hustle to create a portfolio career. People are increasingly combining their skills, hobbies, and interests into creating their own niche careers and bringing value in unique ways. Tuning in today, you’ll hear valuable tips on how to identify a need that you can uniquely fill, recognize what fears are holding you back, and take the first step towards creating your own career mashup.

 

In this episode you’ll:

  • Find out what a career mashup is and why you should consider one.
  • Discover how to parallel path your primary job with a side hustle. 
  • Rethink how you can combine your interests and past experiences into a niche. 
  • Authorize yourself to reject the idea that picking a lane is the only way to achieve success.
  • Discover the first steps towards branching out into something new. 
  • Recognize what fears are holding you back.
  • Redefine success as a feeling, not a metric.
  • Identify who is allowed to have an influence on the direction that you’re taking. 
  • Hear Connie’s inspiring backstory.

“A career mashup really is this combination of roles, skills, experiences, and interests that people now really want to put together in their career because there’s this desire to reflect their whole selves.” — @conniewsteele [0:00:50]

“The old model of career growth and development was one that was linear, sequential, really siloed, and about conformity. But now there’s been this fundamental shift to be more fluid, collaborative, multi-modal, and multi-dimensional. It’s about individual agency.”  — @conniewsteele [0:01:02]

“People are combining these roles and careers that seem so disparate, but truly there’s a connective tissue and they’re doing both, they’re parallel pathing both, because it makes them feel whole.” — @conniewsteele [0:03:57]

“The future is fluid, it’s not about automation, it’s not about machine learning. The future of work, the future in general, is fluidity.” — @conniewsteele [0:13:22]

“Success can be a feeling. It doesn’t have to be this hard and fast metric.” — @conniewsteele [0:14:14]
