The world is full of slashes – people who are earning most of their living in one field, but starting up in another. There's the barista-artist and the lawyer – novelist and the energy consultant – photographer.
Yet those slash careers, which engage and encourage you and diversify your sources of income may confuse others or put them off. This may be true especially if one of your slash careers seems frivolous or a little funny (as mine does) or not in line with your main career choice.
