Everybody is playing it safe,
because they think that's the smart thing to do.
But in today's new economy, playing it safe
is the riskiest thing you can do.
All the rules have changed and they're going to change more tomorrow.
Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest, Randy Gage - NYTimes Bestselling Author of "Risky is the New Safe" - explains that disruptive technology, changing cultural trends, a breakdown of the education system, government and corporate corruption and malfeasance, and a societly that is some ways evolving -
and in other ways devolving -
has moved the target.
And it keeps moving, faster every day.
The people who create prosperity in the new economy will be in front of the trends, anticipating them instead of naively reacting to what happened yesterday.
It doesn't matter if you're an individual or a company. To create wealth or success today, you have to become a critical thinker and blow up conventional wisdom.
When everyone is zigging, you want to be zagging.
Let's face it - tired, old conventional thinking won’t get you to success today.
From monkeys replacing human laborers to cloning, ocean-floor real estate development to asteroid mining, to virtual-reality adventures in holosuites, Randy provides fascinating insights into what the future holds and how people and companies can best prepare for it.
Join Julie Ann and Randy to discover why following conventional thinking is no longer sufficient, and how becoming a contrarian and critical thinker will allow you to succeed in ways you've likely not even yet imagined.
