Show Highlights:

-Have we really lost our manufacturing jobs or have they just changed?

-Life long learning is part of our economy now

-Why there’s value in higher human interaction; would we really want to go to a restaurant and be served by a robot?

-Acquiring more skills to become permanently employed

-Learning how project management works

-There’s no evidence that the higher education system is really teaching the life skills to really build a career; why a diploma is not enough

-Enthusiasm, passion, invention and persistence will get you everywhere

-The internet as an essential part of a new economy

-There are nooks and crannies which are not being filled by big corporations; this is the community economy

-Relocalizing and bringing manufacturing back to the U.S.; we’re in the beginning of a new industrial age

-Steps to become self employed

-How important will diplomas be in the future?

-Knowledge is now basically free with all the information on the internet; take advantage of it and improve your skills and gain new ones

-Trust the network, not the government

and more!
