In this http://www.artistshousemusic.org interview, Jeffrey Fisher, a musician/teacher/software trainer/producer/composer/author, explains the concept of the “slash” career — such as musician/teacher, or student/composer — in detail, and discusses how to make a career that is simultaneously moving along very different paths work for you. His key insight is that everyone is already in a “slash” career of some kind, and his advice is geared toward helping people organize their lives entrepreneurially in order to capitalize naturally on the passion and talent that is already being brought to bear, in a disorganized fashion, on the careers on both sides of the slash.
