I'm here to set the record straight before this terms into one of those annoying (but somewhat accurate) buzzwords like "personal branding".
The idea is not to be a dilettante. Rather, you want to at least be good enough to:
-Objectively rank in the top 20%
-Make a living from the skill
-Be recognized by an independent body
Aim to be better than average at a few things.
When everyone can write copy, tell stories, and market, you don't have a skill stack. You have the minimum for success.
If everyone in your industry can do a thing, you doing it as well is NOT a skill stack. It's a prerequisite.
What makes something a skill? Is there an objective way separate the inferior from the superior?
If there isn't, can a jury of peers tell who is better or worse? The more subjective the assessment of an ability, the less likely it's a skill.
1+1 must be greater than or equal to 3. Most skills can be synergistically combined.
If they resist amalgamation, it's because:
-They're not skills
-They're not developed enough
-You need another skill to bridge the gap
The more disparate the skills in your stack, the better your chance of success.
This uniqueness is what allows you to stand out and makes it more difficult for people to compete with you.
