It is no surprise to anyone reading this that we live in incredibly difficult times. Unemployment is on the rise, government spending is out of control, 401Ks are evaporating into thin air and job stability seems like a thing of the past.
The world, as we know it, is no longer limited to the country we live in. The borders have come down and the global marketplace is in our front yard. We are no longer in competition with the guy across the street or the person sitting next to us in class; our competitors live thousands of miles away in China, India and Brazil to name a few.
The world no longer needs “one-trick” ponies. Being “good enough” doesn’t cut it anymore. We can no longer rely on one stream of income to provide for ourselves. We must become indispensable and possess multidimensional skill sets.
