Looking at career opportunities today, there are some obvious trends forming. The biggest trend is the replacement of so many jobs by robots or artificial intelligence. Jobs that we used to take for granted.
Some examples of the worst affected jobs are; retail stores, restaurants, office assistants, accounting, data entry, construction, telemarketers, receptionists, and even journalists and musicians. And this is just a small selection of an ever-growing list.
Now let’s have a look at where career opportunities are expanding right now. The online world immediately springs to mind.
There are more people online today than ever before, and the number is due to keep on growing. The internet is including more of our day to day activities all the time, and this offers so many opportunities for those with the correct online skills.
A quick search on Google, YouTube, or any of the social media platforms will have you drowning with information about many different ways to get started online. This shows the current popularity, and there is good reason for that.
With the great improvements in software tools and associated training, it has never been easier to perform online tasks that would have been very demanding only 10 years ago. Like building a website for example.
So where does that leave our kids?
When they get to leave school, with their likely inadequate education for the jobs that are available at that time, they could choose to go to university or college to study online business. Another few years of education and lots of money invested.
If they are 10 years or older (they might even be able to start younger), they can start to get familiar with the different platforms and concepts that will eventually allow them to generate money online.
By the time they are 15 or 16, they could have multiple online sources of income.
At first, they will need plenty of assistance from you the parent, as they build their skills and experience.
If you do not have these skills, there is no need to worry.
A few short years ago, I knew absolutely nothing about making money online. But I now have the skills to build websites, start Facebook groups, Pinterest, Instagram, and so on. It is just a matter of getting stuck in.
And, of course, having the right education.
I joined the Mentors program and used their step-by-step modular education system. It is really important to be surrounded by the right people while learning these skills. This encourages plenty of additional motivation and inspiration.
And I am here to guide you as well 😁.
I would like to point out that this will involve a fair amount of screen time for your kids. Unfortunately, that is the nature of the beast. Just ensure that they have plenty of off-screen time to compensate.
With this knowledge, you will be able to start passion projects. Online projects that you are truly passionate about.
The intention of a passion project is to have fun. And with the digital skills you learn at Mentors, you will have the added benefit of creating income on the side.
And they will be learning valuable skills that will last them for a life-time.
This time you spend with your kids is invaluable. As well as having fun, they will look up to you as a role model and will embrace the possibilities available online.
