Building a multi-hyphen career, with Emma Gannon

“We’ve all got things we were good at as children that we’ve forgotten about”

My guest this week is author and broadcaster Emma Gannon, who has used the internet as a springboard to multi-hyphenated success.

Emma’s written for every major publication going. Her first book, Ctrl Alt Delete came out in 2016 to much critical acclaim, and her podcast of the same name has taken the charts by storm ever since. Now finishing work on her second book, we talk today about success, money, multi-hyphenated careers and our shared experiences and observations of carving one out.
