Be creative in how you apply your skills in the marketplace.
For the love of God we were not taught to be creative when I was a kid.
We thought about careers as a series of boxes. You had to fit into a certain career-box.
Look around you. There are people making over $100,000 on Instagram!
There are so many different ways to apply your skills in the marketplace, it’s a shame to stick to the same old simple-minded model of earning.
One of the reasons I wanted to start Roostervane was because, when I was looking for a job, I would google, “What job can I get with my history degree?”
I would get a sad little list from the 1990s, full of old-world thinking about humanities degrees.
This old-world thinking still dominates the way we talk about careers.
Be creative in how you apply yourself.
It will make an enormous difference to your outcomes and your happiness.
