I agree with Chris.
I've seen this happen when people start talking about multiple streams of income (MSOI). But, that's a pretty ineffective method of application. The most successful MSOI is when the businesses are related.
It's better than being an indexer, a Tupperware dealer, a legal representative, etc. That is being really scattered. It creates an information overload because a person needs to do so much research in order to stay on top of things. It also requires three completely different skill sets.
However, narrowing it down, for instance, one method of related is an indexer who also does proofreading and editing. I don't, but many do. This is better, since at least they are all in the publishing field. But, they still need to keep up with 3 different fields--indexing, proofreading, and editing require DIFFERENT skill sets. It's better, though, since the publishing field is just one. They don't have to deal with information overload.
But, a better method yet would be an indexer who also teaches indexing through a class, writes books
Well stated, Indexlady!
