There was something in the paper yesterday about how many current young children will go into jobs that don’t currently exist.
My wife and I got talking about this early this morning, while I was waiting for a mini medical check-up ( I passed!).
We discovered that everyone of my 32 businesses was not even possible when I was at school (over 40 years ago!) - and for my wife, who left Uni about a dozen years ago, none of what we do was possible then either.
I used to broadcast a phone-in show 5 times a week on a local radio station in the UK.
The equipment was expensive.
I had to be at the studio at the broadcast times, 10pm to 2am.
I had to have a techie behind the glass to “drive” the show.
I had another techie to filter the incoming calls and patch them through to me.
And it only went out live - there was no internet etc.
And it could only be listened to for a few miles around.
Now, I can pick my phone up - and broadcast to the world via Anchor FM - and take incoming calls.
This newsletter wasn’t possible until very recently.
Nor were my regular Skype calls.
Or the fact that at ten to 4 yesterday afternoon my time, my newsletter went out around the world.
And by 4pm, just 10 minutes later, people had, very happily, moved money from their bank accounts to mine.
(I was happy, too, let’s be honest!).
By the time I got up this morning, 3 people had emailed that they’d already studied enough of the course to get clients.
They’d started a start-up!
Technology is getting easier all the time - what used to be difficult is now easy.
And, if you wish, you can easily outsource the “techie” bits to people like Taskbullet
for pennies, which so many of my readers are doing successfully.
