Media Masters - Emma GannonMay 09, 2018 Media Masters
Emma Gannon is an author, consultant, broadcaster and podcast presenter. Her first book ‘Ctrl, Alt, Delete: How I Grew Up Online’ came out in 2016, and the eponymous podcast has featured guests such as Lena Dunham, Gillian Anderson, Elizabeth Gilbert, and Zoella. Her imminent second book ‘The Multi-Hyphen Method: work less, create more, and design a career that works for you’ has led to her starring in a national advertising campaign for Microsoft which showcases her career, and the ‘Method’. In this in-depth interview, she talks through how she left the world of stable, regular employment to pursue and monetise her “side hustles” - including growing her now hugely popular and acclaimed podcast; shares tips on how to self-promote online “without feeling icky”; and argues that changes in the workplace means increasingly more people will balance a regular job (“to pay the rent”) alongside creatively-fulfilling freelance work too.
