Say hello to Angelica Lewis :: Carleen MacKay :: Rob Kinslow and Fabian Lewis … We are a multi-generational, multi-ethnic, multi-talented team who will serve as your guides to a future of your work, during this time of extraordinary global and technological change. Our focus is helping people improve their competitive workforce value in a fast changing, technologically advancing global economy. From strategic planning to the latest and newest marketing tools, our charter is to help people to compete in this new world of work.
While we are the facilitators of a new workforce, including YOU, together, all of us are participating and creating a new way of working in the 21st century. Over the coming months, in a series of posts, we invite you to digest our easy-reading posts. Together we will focus your attention on what changes are happening in the world of work, and why the changes matter to all of us. How and where to discover new or different work that suits you. In short, the Workforce Wingmen will show you that while “jobs” dominated the 20th century workforce, WORK, in all its many expressions, now shapes the future. Retooling the stories of change from crises to opportunities, real-life stories by people who have found new, and different, ways to work will inspire you. Gone will be the once-upon-a-time 8-to-5 job and a career with just one or two employers.
Let’s get started with a taste of the future that is now. Did you know, for instance, that today, about a third of the U.S. workforce work as freelancers?
And that by 2020, that number will go up to 40-50% of the U.S. workforce?
Call them free agents, part-timers, project workers or independent contractors, they move from organization-to-project-to-organization ever more frequently than in the past. This group of economic actors are the solo-preneurs, barterers, portfolio, subject-matter experts or interim workers of the 21st century. Look around your office, neighborhood or school, in a few short years, 1 out of every 2 people you see could be a freelancer or solo-preneur. Will you be one of them?
What stops you from considering a freelance option as your preferred way of working? Is it the need to externalize your sense of security to employers—who cannot, in the final analysis, offer security? Do you want to learn to internalize your sense of security to where it has always lived, within you?
Open your mind’s eye to the possibilities the future offers, at every stage of your work/life.
