DTD Episode 7: Jack of all Trades Master of Many?

DTD Podcast 7 – Jack of all Trades Master of Many? – We are going to discuss a HIGHLY debatable topic today.  It’s  about being an expert in many areas or in other words, a Jack of All Trades.

It’s often been said that being a Jack of all Trades is a bad thing.  Why? Because you are not a master of anything and when you are in a corporate structure, you have to be skilled in a particular area in order to get hired for that job.  However, being a Jack of all Trades is not necessarily a bad thing as my think.  In fact it can help open your mind to new ideas and discover your true passions in life!
