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.

Live Brolic!

 

The ride-sharing company hopes its autonomous vehicles will help cut congestion in cities and reduce the number of traffic accidents.

I haven’t read the whole article, and I don’t plan too.

The fact that photographs of potatoes sold for a million plus blows my mind.  Marketing, and quality product had to have played a role.

Or even more simply- a man who honed his craft, now cashes in.

I could go on and on but I want to see what my readers think.

AM I a fool?

Was the buyer?

Hit the comments folks.
