Are you trying to plan for the future? Are you trying to develop a skill that is going to be essential for all of the top paying jobs in the 2020s? Well, here it is. Remember, it is highly likely that we are going to see an increased use of robots and similar technology as well as more things being handled online rather than store clerks in actual retail stores and malls. More and more are jobs disappearing yet more jobs are becoming opportunities for people.
As i see it, the number one job in the future is going to be for creators. It does not matter what kind of content you are creating, whether it be how-to videos, music, software, apps, or even literature, there is always going to be a job for people who can create products that others want to consume. As a creator, your job is to talk to people about your product or service and give speeches and interviews regarding it to generate interest. That is a critical skill that most people ignore.
Think about someone like Steve Jobs, who owned a computer company yet wasn’t the one doing the coding. He was the face and the mouthpiece of the company- the guy giving speeches and marketing and selling new products. So if you want to make yourself much more useful and marketable in the 2020s and beyond, you need to know how to speak. Whether it is on your own Facebook or Youtube videos, live speeches in front of large audiences, clients, and customers, or news media interviews, there is never going to be a way of eliminating the importance of this skill.
