Question 43: how do you avoid getting pigeon-holed?

Personally, I wouldn't advise you to avoid it. Get pigeon-holed. Be an expert at something. Build a reputation. Then, when you are ready and you have the right relationships, you can transition to something new. 

The chameleon strategy is a hard one. People don't know where to put you. It's kind of like being a Jack of all trades, master of none.

I don't disagree. I will say in addition, that sometimes it's not. And what's really difficult is not getting work at all, because no one sees you as an expert at anything. There are tough choices to be made in our industry. This is definitely one of them! Thanks for your comment.
