I was just wondering to what extent should personal and professional life intersect?
The greatest problem I face is essentially I am expert on nothing.I have few hard skills. I lack an idea
So I figured my options were:
1-Go back to college(at least part time) in
a.Computer Science or software engineering OR
b. Finish my undergrad in Pure Math, which I think has less immediate benefits but would pay off more in the long term as it has more general applications.
3-Network to bring in someone with hard skills to complement the sales skills I am currently focusing on.
4-Combination of the 3
So my qs.
1-Would you consider things like going to community events/political/charitable clubs worthwhile even if they do not have immediate benefits and impede on work? or would you consider it idle work/spinning wheels?
2-How about interest-based clubs like sports clubs?
3-If you are part of a diaspora, have you found networking inside of it useful?
4- Generally speaking, it is advised not to take friends as business partners. Would you risk a friendship and take a friend as business partner?
PS: I don`t plan to do anything I don`t like simply because of networking or to go to things like Toastmasters.I`m truly not interested in selling to friends or extended family, it`s just for finding new ideas, gathering intelligence, etc.
I also neglected civic engagement for the past two years.
