I work in two separate fields, and have been working in both for the last 8 years. The second field of mine started as a side interest and it's now grown into a profession. There is a problem that I've noticed: people in one field tend to doubt my skills in my field because they think I know too much in the other field (and vice versa).
I don't know what's normal for most people, but in the last eight years, I've rarely worked less than 70 hours a week, with some weeks being even more than that. In addition, in my free time I attend events for both fields. In the beginning of my career, working two jobs was the only way to "make it" and I've adopted this system permanently now.
Here's the problem I'm having: would it be better to separate each profession from each other on LinkedIn? I often do my own contracts for field two, since field one is my "day job" but the feedback from some people expressing doubts about my skill in field one because of my skills in field two, make me wonder if separating profiles would help.
