The Skills Of The Future

Do you realize that in the last 30 years the median income hasn't risen much, meanwhile, productivity has more than doubled!

Why do you think that is?

I can tell you. It's because of automation, computers and the internet.

How can you have any doubt that job security and the economy are becoming more and more dependent on the skills of the future?

Those skills are web design, search engine optimization (SEO), online marketing, and among many others, one of my favorites being, new media literacy. Where do they come up with these names?

The newest statistics show that by 2045, roughly half of all jobs will be automated.

When you see and understand trends, you can position yourself to leverage them.

By understanding the trends, you can prepare for, and create security.

Why not plan for a better future? By acquiring new internet based skills you can:

-Create your own affiliate business
-Discover how to create your own products to sell online
-Become a consultant
-Improve your current position
-Go for a better position, or better job with a new company.

What if you had the opportunity to earn while you learn? What you are really doing is creating opportunities. Opening doors that may not have been possible before.

You create your future. You and your future are a priority. Are you placing enough importance on what you want, and how you want to live? Or are you just settling, comfortable with being uncomfortable and living an ok life?

What do you want your life to look like in one year? The year is coming and going anyway. Will anything change if you don't change it?

Author's Bio: 

I have been married for almost 35 years to the same wonderful, supportive, loving - yet sometimes taxing man! He would say the same of me!

We have two fantastic kids whom we love with all our hearts and are very proud of, five super special grand kids, (I am a "Mimi", I have bragging rights) and two adorable canine adopted kids that let us live in the house with them. Not to mention saltwater fish and corals that are part of my addictive reef keeping hobby.

When I was in my early thirties I was hit hard by a condition called CFIDS, or Chronic Fatigue & Immune Dysfunction Syndrome, also known as CFS, and ME in the U.K. for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. I was flat on my back for a year, and it took me a few years after that to return to a somewhat normal lifestyle.

A couple of years ago I was hit with a relapse of the condition while I was working full-time and going to school part-time, trying to get a degree. I spent 6 months flat on my back again, and during this time suffered from a heart attack. We aren't sure why, but I believe it was a byproduct of this condition.

Now, I have good days and not so great days, depending on how "good" I am about monitoring my activities. I have a type "A" personality, so it's difficult for me to reign myself in sometimes!

I am determined not to let this condition define me as a person, or hold me back from realizing my dreams.

I am passionate about business and anything entrepreneurial. I believe that small businesses of all kinds are the foundation of this country as well as the world economy. I have, in fact, owned a brick & mortar business, and have mastered internet marketing skills which I can do from home, at my pace.

This state-of-the-art digital academy has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me! Since becoming a student and affiliate I have learned so much!

Through the academy I have discovered the in's and out's of internet marketing. I am now able to understand the different types of internet advertising, SEO, blogging, social media marketing, copy writing, etc. There are many affiliate opportunities available on the internet, including the affiliate program that I have been able to learn how to do as well.

The academy provides training for small business owners that want to learn online marketing in order to take their business into the online world, as well as how to develop a brand properly, and how to grow a professional internet business presence. The mentorship from individuals that have built successful businesses has been invaluable, and I really appreciate the relationship I have built with my mentors.

I love what I am doing, but most of all, I love the community! We are like-minded people from all over the world, committed to help each other succeed. It is a truly rare thing! We are a great big family!

The training gave me the skills I needed to be able to develop an online marketing consulting business. I am able to help small business owners, locally and globally, develop custom marketing plans that help them be more successful. I LOVE helping small business owners grow their businesses!

I have invested in myself just like I was doing when I was investing in a college education. The difference is that with this digital business academy, I have been able to apply the practical, and real world information I have learned to build an online business . *
