Half of today’s occupations won’t exist within a decade
We’re not about scaring you into action but we have to point out that whilst there are huge opportunities available to set up new businesses or money making schemes the work landscape is also changing very quickly.
This perfect storm of automation and artificial intelligence meeting globalisation is changing working patterns and business beyond recognition. Not only is your career at risk from being outsourced to someone who will do it cheaper across the other side of the world but it’s also under pressure from computers and technology which are being developed to replace you.
This march of technology is likely to result in over half of occupations becoming extinct within a decade. I’ve lived through this change, my main job is in an industry that didn’t exist when I was at school and I have already been squeezed out of one industry which may well not exist in a few years time.
As the world of work changes, new jobs and opportunities will be created but the time to start experimenting with a new lifestyle isn’t when your stops existing but when you are still in work and have time and money to plan and experiment. This is what this website is about.
