Episode #23 | Marci Alboher: Encore.org – The Power of Multigenerational Collaboration

“In certain circles, everyone has a side hustle. And they don’t hide it from their employer.”

– Marci Alboher


The traditional 9-to-5 work life is a relic of the past. In recent years, Americans young and old have taken up creative work, passion projects, side gigs, and volunteering, not to mention family care, alongside their day jobs to pursue an interest, make an impact, or boost their income. Marci Alboher, a leading expert on workplace trends, shines a light on the rise of the “slash” career and shares her own quest to separate self-worth from net worth.
