I’m a Slashie!

Ha ha, what a funny name to give oneself, don’t you think? I heard this on the radio last week, and it caught my attention. Apparently, more people in the UK are working as self-employed “slashies.” It means that we no longer follow the traditional working pattern of taking one job and sticking with it. We are now far more likely to have multiple jobs at any one time. For example: writer/shop worker/dog walker/child wrangler/housewife (that’s me!).

I'm a Slashie!

I cannot earn a regular wage as a writer because the work is too unpredictable, and I am still exploring the possibilities. So when I was offered a couple of casual jobs for a few hours a week, I took them up quite happily. It gives me a steady income and leaves time to devote to my career of choice. And I love the jobs that I do, so it’s a win-win situation. How about you? Are you a slashie? Or do you prefer the old-fashioned single job situation?

    I’m totally aiming to be a slashie – hopefully healer, tarot reader, writer, and pagan event co-ordinator!

  2. I’d rather just be a writer. I wish!
