Flipping Each Others Burgers

Job security used to be checking off the boxes - good grades, good networking, "right" college, good employer and they'd take care of you.

Job security today, appears to be multiple income streams.  Thus far, I've failed miserably at this blog being one of my other income streams...

A former boss of mine used to protest that "we can't all buy hamburgers from each other, somebody has to make something"

Chris Sacca on the Tim Ferriss podcast recently said:

"...the old economy where people used to have careers, pensions, and benefits that doesn’t exist anymore, it’s been replaced by people who are called associates, who are hourly, who don’t qualify for benefits, who don’t really have a safety net and there is scary implications to that.  I saw a prophetic comment on twitter where the future will be 10 trillionaires and the rest of us will be taking turns serving vente expressos to each other and driving around in each other’s ubers.  Obviously that’s intensively dystopian but there is a trend line pointed in that direction…”
He's probably right... most of us will have to create  ways that entice others to ride in our uber and order our vente expressos to make ends meet.
