Collaboration Vs. Competition | Jobs Of The Future | Melissa Drake

Jobs of the Future are going to be incredibly different than those of today. As the world economy becomes more connected and interwoven with itself thanks to the power of the internet, our civilization will begin to connect more readily with folks from all over the world.

This will open up new possibilities inside of the world economy. Jobs of the future and businesses that lean more towards collaboration with others instead of competing with others very well could have the upper hand when it comes to material success. Ironically, it will be more beneficial to collaborate with others instead of competing just because of the way in which our interconnected network is becoming.

Melissa Drake and I are diving into why this is the case. Here’s a few examples: jobs of the future will be based online at an increased rate compared to those that are in existence today. This will mean that folks who own and operate a small business will achieve a more mutually beneficial agreement when choosing to collaborate with one another vs. competing. Why is this the case? Because it is easier to provide valuable information to each other’s audiences and customers than it is to compete. By doing so, everyone wins.

In the past, it was harder to create these “everyone wins” situations because resources in general were more scarce. However, now that the world is expanding, Jobs of the future that focus more around the idea of collaborating and sharing of resources are more viable and ultimately more profitable because partnering businesses can gain access to each other’s networks and audiences instead of fighting one another for the right to serve the same individual.

Furthermore, folks are developing more developed niches of individuals due to the interconnectivity of our world. In today’s market, it is much easier to find 1,000 people who are geared specifically around YOUR business and what you are offering within a very narrow spectrum. Customers/clients are more likely to work with you based around your personality and just their natural tendency to want to work with you related to what you’re offering in your business. By leaning into this swing, jobs of the future will allow for more collaboration and openness with fellow businesses and also with the customers in general.
