Trade in old ideas
The days of the traditional career economy are over.
The old trend?
Get an education, find a stable company, work hard and earn money for them for roughly 30 years, pad your 401K, and then settle into a cushy retirement.
The new trend?
Out of school, find a company where you can get your feet wet and get a couple of years of experience under your belt. After this, bounce around to different companies and maybe even different industries, acquiring all of the experience and skills you possibly can. All the while, keep your own personal savings and retirement accounts going.
The new trend lends itself nicely to what we like to call the New Career Economy. It doesn’t have to be viewed as a negative; quite the contrary in fact. Instability in the workplace is forcing people to be more creative and resourceful than ever before. People are assuming more responsibility and taking control of their future. Many have discovered that business ownership is the way to do that.
