Uber’s first self-driving car pulls out onto the streets of Pittsburgh – Roadshow

10 Jun

Everyone loves Uber.

It’s hip, trendy, and an industry disruptor.

ALL the elements of a good spy novel.

Okay, I’m kidding.  This is no Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

However there is a side to this story I’m betting most people have missed- The job killer this will be. 

UBER, while providing new forms of jobs is killing its predecessor jobs.

But I’m not talking about those jobs.

I’m talking about the multiple industries and service industries that will disappear when the cars don’t need us.

 

Now, why is this important to you?

Simple- are you waiting for UBer or one of its’ Silicon Valley friends to disrupt the industry that you eek out a living from?

IS your income/salary/living in someone elses hands?

Why?

Not long ago I realized I’d never be paid what I was worth as long as I had a boss.

It was a sobering thought, but liberating as well.

Want to join me in firing “The Boss?”

Are you ready to live up to your full potential?

Let’s chat.

Yet another reason why investing in a high priced degree is probably not worth the effort when you can make 6 figures.
