By March 15, 2021October 22nd, 2021No Comments



This interview and article featuring Madeleine Grummet and New York-based executive coach and consultant Dorie Clarke was released on Monday 15 March, 2021, on ABC’s ‘This Working Life’, hosted by Lisa Leong.


Dorie Clark, sought after New York-based executive coach and consultant, warns it’s crucial to build a portfolio career – where you have multiple revenue streams – even if you have a full-time job.

Recorded live at Pausefest 2021, Dorie explains how this model saved her in 2020 when hundreds of thousands of dollars of income dried up almost overnight.

In this episode of This Working Life, Dorie shares her blueprint for professional independence, including insights and advice on becoming a recognised expert, monetising your expertise, and extending your reach and impact online.

Dorie has been recognized as #1 Communication Coach in the world, one of the top 50 business thinkers in the world and she’s worked with clients such as Google, Microsoft, and the World Bank. She is also the author of numerous books including best sellers Standout and Entrepreneurial You and her next book, The Long Game, comes out in September 2021.

We also hear from Madeleine Grummet (tech entrepreneur and investor, and founder of Future Amp and girledworld), plus Darren Milo (D Milo Consulting, Beaton) on how they have built their own portfolio careers.
