The more I read about and observe the economy, the stronger is my belief that you should,
THINK hard about and then WORK on developing an alternate skill or two (something that’s not directly related to the type of work you’re doing right now). The skill that you value so much right now will be a commodity/out of demand before you realize it.
A few advantages:
- More marketable skills — across industries/sectors.
- Additional/Alternate sources of income — so critical these days right?
What do you think? If you’ve already worked on this, I’d love to hear a comment from you.
