It’s a changing world out there.
You feel it. I feel it. And today’s generation of 20 somethings — a generation I’m included in — feels it more than ever.
Much of this change has happened under our watch. We were the generation that grew up thinking we could do whatever we wanted, but at the same time were told that if we followed the rules we would be successful in life.
Yet we’ve also watched jobs that we may have aspired to as kids disappear.
Jobs like travel agents…
And many more non-tradable jobs — gone. Or at least going quickly, soon to be gone. Replaced by computers and cheap labor.
(Heck, we can’t even be astronauts anymore. And who didn’t want to be an astronaut as a kid?)
These jobs and others like them are no longer an option for us.
