Learning the Encore Career Lingo

A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanged, it is the skin of a living thought and may vary greatly in color and content according to the circumstances and the time in which it is used. ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

Something fascinating happens in language when a new paradigm arises. Think about the lingo that’s cropped up with the advent of social media. A whole new lingo was created so that we had a way to talk about it. Now a whole new lingo appears to be surfacing to give us a way to talk about activities associated with designing Encore Careers, such as these…

  •  Gig Economy or Gigonomics – where no one has “jobs”. Everyone has “gigs” and everyone hustles.
  • Slasher, Slash Career or Career with Slashes – One person cobbling together multiple careers-  as in – Construction Worker / Hair Stylist or Police Officer / Landscaper.
  • Pro-tirement – Seeing retirement as the opportunity to stay active, engaged and pursue a new or different career that includes Passion, Purpose, and a Paycheck!tm
