GIVEAWAY POST: Set Your Sage Skills to Stun for Small Business Month!

Last updated on July 23rd, 2017 at 09:13 am

What makes me sad is when I see youth who think the world of work is the same as it’s ever been in 2015, relying on a polished résumé and a large corporation to take care of them for the foreseeable future—the same way they did for our parents all those decades ago.

But the world’s changed a heckuva lot since the days of Jheri curls and bell bottoms, far more global than the siloed environments that reigned in the ’80s. Many jobs that existed back then found themselves outsourced or replaced, with computers and cheap international labour far more cost-effective than filling seats with Canadian butts!

There’s a simple reality behind it all—today’s world of work isn’t the one our parents toiled through; we’ll need to think about the very nature of work in entirely new ways if we ever want to get anywhere in 2015! And the sooner we accept that, the sooner we’ll find our way in an ever-shifting environment with new rules coming every day.

Welcome to the New World of Work—I hope you’re ready for it!

“I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man

Let me handle my business, damn.”

— Jay-Z on Kanye West’s “Diamonds from Sierra Leone (remix)”, Late Registration (2005)

Holding a job down as a youth in 2014 has a very different meaning than what was I led to strive for a decade ago. Yes, the traditional jobs are still around—you can be a doctor, lawyer, carpenter or plumber—but life has gotten harder, people are working longer, and here just aren’t as many opportunities to go around for everyone. Blogging’s shown me it’s no exception, with plenty of bloggers trying to make the jump from hobbyists to full-fledged digital consultants, always on the hunt for the next paid gig.

But being hungry for opportunity and working hard isn’t going to cut it in the ultra-competitive world we’re in today—you also have to work smarter than the competition for success, and, from my experiences, Sage’s budgeting tools will help you keep organized so you can spend more time using your energy in the right places.
