One of the key messages we’re picking up from our Making a Living project, is that there is a new breed of young people we’re calling Life Hackers.They will have changed their expectations about what’s important to them in life, focusing instead on building relationships and applying their skills to make a living. They’ve gone through different stages of coping, from initially reflecting on their situation to looking for ways to improve as a way to stay resilient and even to become independent of pressures that traditional work lifestyles impose. Although many of these are unemployed or underworked, they make use of their networks to share assets and skills.
Would you quit everything and turn your hobby into a job?
