According to the Harvard Economist, Larry Katz – Well paying jobs of the future will be in the service sector  – and will reward people with whose skill and personal touch set them apart.

According to the Future of Small Business report:

“The coming decade will see continuing economic transformation and the emergence of a new artisan economy. Many of the new artisans will be small and personal businesses — merchant-craftsmen and women producing one of a kind or limited runs of specialty goods for an increasingly large pool of customers seeking unique, customized, or niche products. These businesses will attract and retain craftspeople, artists, and engineers looking for the opportunity to build and create new products and markets.”

The best part is, you only need the skills you already have, add some know-how and you are ready to get in the game = and succeed!

Like many others, we set out to diversify our skills as well as income streams. Though it has been a tough ride with a lot of learning, we created a skill-set and a business that would help us glide smoothly into our 30s and beyond.

In this age of automation, we chose to work on a set of skills (people, technology, and business) that is designed to help you learn a new tech-based skill and launch a new business or career.
