Hello again my friend,
America is at the beginning of a great transition. An evolution in both our economy and our culture.
Today I’d like to give you a glimpse of what the next 20 years are going to look like.
We’re already starting to see the inflationary effects brought on by historic levels of money creation.
Steal prices have tripled, copper is at an all time high, real estate prices continue to climb and food costs are up 30% year over year.
We’re likely to see this continue. These rising costs will accelerate a further push toward automation and later artificial intelligence. Jobs you might think are safe will be replaced by one of these two technologies.
Any job that requires computation or repetition will begin to die off as machines take over. Everything from customer service to accounting is at risk.
This rapid loss of low and middle class jobs will necessitate further government action. This will likely come in the form of a universal basic income.
More and more people will be paid to do nothing, at least for a short period of time while they learn new skills.
In addition, we’re going to see augmented reality become a big part of our everyday life. AR isn’t the same thing as VR (virtual reality) instead AR will begin to bridge the gab between the digital world and the physical.
All of this will radically change the way we live, work and connect with each other.
It’s Not All Bad
There’s a lot of money in making you believe this is all bad news. Some of it will be bad, for some people, but not for everyone.
The good news is we have time to prepare. It’s one of the reasons I’ve committed this stage of my life to helping people create digital businesses. I believe digital businesses offer the greatest freedom and flexibility during this time of transition.
But before you can build a digital business you must acquire what I call “rare and specialized skills”.
These are skills that are in high demand today and will still be in high demand tomorrow.
Now you may be scratching your head saying, “Jason, I don’t even know where to start.” I get that. It can seem overwhelming at first but let me offer one suggestion.
The most important skill you could ever acquire
is the ability to communicate your value to the world.
You need to be able to sell yourself. That’s a hard thing for most people to do.
I don’t care if you’re interviewing for a new job, up for a big promotion, or trying to convince a potential customer to buy from you and not the other guy…
…it all hinges on your ability to promote yourself.
Next week I’m holding a virtual seminar called, “Mastering the Art of Shameless Self-Promotion”.
You can get your ticket here: https://mediapartnersinc.clickfunnels.com/promote-shamelessly
I admit I had some fun with the name but this is a serious subject.
We’re going to start by understanding why most people don’t promote themselves. We’ll spend some time building your confidence so you can feel comfortable talking about yourself and what you do.
Then we’re going to get into the tactics of self-promotion. I’m going to show you how to stand out in a hyperconnected world where everyone’s screaming “Look at me! Look at me!”
When we’re done you’ll have both the confidence and skills necessary to promote yourself in any situation.
But you need to grab your ticket now.
If you’ve ever attended one of my events before you know just how valuable they are. What you’re going to learn at this event has the power to change your life forever.
That’s change we all need because this transition is going to affect all of us, both positively and negatively.
How well you and your family come out of this transition will depend a lot on the choices you make today.
