You've heard the saying, "Don't put all your eggs in one basket," but have you ever considered applying it to your career? James Altucher, a man of many hats—software guy, writer, standup comedian, and more—dives deep into this concept with Bruce Feiler, an author who has spent years researching people who have successfully made dramatic transitions in their lives. From discovering a new passion in your 40s to switching industries without a safety net, Bruce offers a practical guide for those ready to pivot and change direction. So, if you're tired of the straight and narrow and curious about carving out your unique zig-zag path, this episode is for you.
Both James and Bruce challenge the conventional wisdom that says you must stick to one thing to be successful. They explore not just the 'why' but also the 'how' of life reinvention, drawing on real-life stories and actionable advice. Whether you're contemplating a career switch or just want to add more strings to your bow, tune in to find out how you can live a life less ordinary.
