SECTION C: Fallback option, not what you want to do long-termSECTION B: Bridge-Building—Lower risk, Good financial stability
10
With low risk and low reward, these are your Plan C. A fallback option, likely not what you would want to be doing long-term. For some, Plan C is getting a barista or bartending job, for others it may be a fallback skill that you can contract out for a period of time.These opportunities are lower risk, but still offer great financial stability. Think of them as Plan B, optimal for bridge-building from where you are now to where you want to go. For example, working as a freelance consultant while in-between jobs.
