97% OF US WERE SELF-EMPLOYEED & WILL BE AGAIN
In the agricultural days (before machines), it was estimated that 97 percent of people were self-employed. Back then, self-employed looked different! There were farmers, blacksmiths, bakers, and potters. In order for the small ecosystem to thrive and flourish, all of these people were needed… that is until the Industrial Revolution.
SHIFT IN EDUCATION
Naturally, this called for a shift in education. Instead of growing up on the farm and learning how to work in the field from your parents, the schooling system was formed and you were sent off to learn how to work in the factory. You were taught how to follow a specific schedule, sit in rows, listen to bells, and so on.
Then the Industrial Age came and we had a major technological advancement. It was the rise of the machines! Now instead of each ecosystem needing its own farmers, bakers, etc., those products could be mass-produced and shipped en masse. Self-employed people were put out of business by these larger corporations and were forced to take their talents and provide them to others instead of using them for their own business.
HOW IS THIS RELEVANT TODAY?
Another shift happened but everyone seemed to ignore it. The “.com” era kicked off the Information Age. And just like the new education that was needed to survive and thrive in the Industrial Age, the same holds true for the Information Age. The only difference is that when this shift happened, the system stayed the same. There are many reasons for this; including a lack of understanding of how to captitalize, money, greed, and power. But the result of all of this meant that once again people could no longer rely on the big institutions to provide what they need, and it is back to everyday people having the resposibility to serve the public.
WHAT DO PEOPLE NEED?
The largest gap right now is an educational gap. Because the system chose not to adapt to the rise of technology, there are many people that are learning the hard way that computers, automation, and AI are replacing the jobs that they once held. This is why people are being laid off at massive rates, students are leaving college to find no jobs, and the gap between the haves and have-nots is larger than ever.
HOW DO I CAPITALIZE?
Educate! People are willing to pay for convenience, entertainment, and things that make their life better. This can fall into the category of making more money, getting healthier, having better relationships, or just learning things that people want to learn like sewing, cooking, or playing the guitar. Think about it!
BECOME THE EDUCATOR
There are countless people out there who are making six, seven, eight, nine figures and above, selling their knowledge. And this is only the beginning. Why? Because we have gone through a shift and people pay for convenience and will pay to learn things that make their life better, easier, or more enjoyable.
Instead of someone paying tens of thousands of dollars to learn how to get a job, they will now pay a guru a fraction of that to teach them how to trade stocks. They save and make more money using the new skill set that they developed.
Instead of awkwardly having to go and find a couples counselor, they will receive advice behind a screen in the comfort of their home for a much more appealing fee.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
Instead of driving across town in traffic to their personal trainer, people will get advice on how to properly eat, workout, and recover from home on their computers for a fraction of the price.
Instead of signing up for a course at the local JC or recreational center, people are taking online courses and learning what they want to know around a schedule that works best for them.

LETTER TO THE AUDIENCE
Darren Hardy, author of Success Magazine, said it best:
“I want you to envision something… It’s twenty, thirty, or forty years from now. You’re bouncing your great-grandchild on your lap. She looks around your house in awe and then up at you with big wide eyes and asks.. What happened? How did we end up like this? You will be able to say, ‘I was there my child… I was there at the critical juncture in time when the Industrial Age ended and the Connected Age began, and…’ How will you end that sentence? Do you want to say ‘I took full advantage of that critical moment in history and my sacrifice made it possible for the full, prosperous lives we now love so much..’ Or do you want to say ‘I missed it, I didn’t do anything about it, it passed me by, and that’s why we’re STUCK.’”
So tell me… What will it be? What will your great-grandchild say when sitting on your lap, twenty, thirty, or forty years from now?
“The first step is the most important. It is the most crucial and the most effective as it will initiate the direction you have chosen.” – Steve Backley
