Corporations once built to last like pyramids are now more like tents … You can’t design your life around a temporary structure Peter Drucker Management Consultant, Educator and Author (1909 – 2005)

To reinvent work in its fullest sense we need another word. ‘Portfolio’ might be that word. A portfolio is a collection of different items, but a collection that has a theme. The whole is greater than the parts. ….A work portfolio is a way of describing how the different bits of work in our life fit together to form a balanced whole Extracts from ‘The Age of Unreason’ Charles Handy - Author, Philosopher Specialist in Organisational Behaviour and Management

You spend more waking hours at work than any other activity. Life is too short so why be unhappy? Take the 'leap of faith' and do what you love! Steve Preston Career Coach, Author, Speaker, Facilitator and Consultant

Combine and vary any part ….. … suit your work-life blend and income needs
