[73]  Taylor Pearson on The End of Jobs

On this episode Taylor Pearson joins Jordan and Brian to discuss the changing world…from traditional jobs to entrepreneurship.

Taylor began as an interpreter and English teacher and transitioned to an entrepreneur and marketing consultant.  He talks about his upcoming book, The End of Jobs, which he hopes will help people take the steps to become an entrepreneur.

The guys discuss how technology and the internet have changed the traditional safe types of jobs due to companies turning over faster and faster.  Through time what was once considered a safe job is no longer the case.  The changes have enabled entrepreneurs who make smart financial decisions to gain greater control.  Taylor demonstrates how safe jobs are like “the turkey problem” which is a dilemma faced by holiday gobblers each year.

Taylor explains how apprenticeships with entrepreneurs and stair-stepping with low-risk micro businesses can lead to success.
