|As a web developer I feel like I get paid probably unreasonably well for a specific skill while I have a whole bucket of skills off to the side which languish. It's starting to feel more and more unfulfilling to me as I go on yet its hard for me to imagine who would really be able to benefit from such a super wide skill set.|
Off to the side of that I have a decent understanding of how financial markets work to the point where I can hold reasonably deep conversations with friends in finance and have some personal experience trading.
Off to the side of that, I started flipping houses in my spare time and learned not only about plumbing, electrical and carpentry but also about sales, accounting project management, architecture and interior design.
So to sum it up I've picked up a mix of
-programming and technical product development
- understanding of financial markets and many macro econ topics
- light but non trivial knowledge of several different trades
- the hard and soft skill picked up on the real estate transactions
- all sorts of other little skill all over the place
Im not trying to be cocky here, my skills in each of these areas are each drastically worse than the people who focus on them full time (hopefully with the exception of the tech stuff) but I was wondering if anyone has found ways to use super broad skill sets like these. The only thing that comes to mind is maybe niche areas of finance but I wouldn't even be sure where to look and I wouldnt be sure how to pitch my experience.
Any thoughts or similar experiences would be appreciated.
