  1. Dr. Dick, I think talking about using tranferable skills was an important statement to help people think of themselves as worth while, who can still be productive. Thank you for the encouragement!

  2. I think that jobs are overrated and in some ways they have become a way for the powerful groups to keep the masses in check. Jobs have also helped to create a culture where we expect our employers to take care of us. I believe that we need to take back control of our future, and part of that means being in business for ourselves. As you said in your video, jobs came about with the Industrial Revolution. Back in colonial times and westward expansion people found a way to provide a service or product to their community and made a business of it. I think it is time to get back to that. It’s the best cure of a “bad economy”.

    I agree wholeheartedly, Wayne. Sometimes, you have to lose a job before you realize how ridiculous the whole concept is.

    Hi Dr Dick!

    I am Mattias, the founder of GYBF (Get Your Blog Followers).

    This was a very interesting video and I must agree with you.The society today has hard to integrate with the internet and some leaders and politicians are sometimes making a resistance to slow down this very important process.So, if some talented networker has a fulltime job online which has replaced their offline job they can consider their online job as serious as their former employment.This is a very important issue and our politicians must face this and proceed to the information society without the common fear that many people has for the internet.

  5. Dr. Dick says:

    Thanks for your support on this important topic, Matthias.

  6. This seems very interesting. I would definitely agree on you.

    I would likely to try read on the article you suggested to read for reference.

    Thanks Dr Dick. happy

    Some very good information, Dr. Dick. After I retired in 2008 I was in the market for something to keep me busy and earn some extra money. I decided to start my own business, The Oxygen Therapy Program, and I haven’t looked back.

    Finding a job for someone my age is problematic at best, so starting my own online business was the best thing I ever did for myself!

  8. Dr. Dick says:

    Good for you, Lynne. That was my point. The days are gone when “find a job” is the only answer to producing income for your family. Time to think out of the box. Starting your own business is what many people are doing today. Smart move!
