Skills: The Currency of the Future

Share This Episode!

You could lose your job, your business could fail, but even if your income drops to zero, there’s one thing you won’t lose: skills.

In our last episode with Grant Sabatier, he said skills are the future currency and we couldn’t agree more.

With a good mix of skills, you will both increase your earning potential and decrease your income requirements.

In this episode, we introduce a concept we came up with around offensive and defensive skills.

With offensive skills being those used to generate income, and defensive skills being utilized to save on expenses.

The reality is that many skills can be dual-purposed.

Breaking it down further, you can bucket these skills into those that you’re simply good at and those that you have and are passionate about.

Some examples of skills we cover in the episode.

  • Networking
  • Carpentry
  • Finding deals
  • Cooking
  • Blogging
  • Sales
  • Adaptability
  • Fitness

We truly believe that obtaining skills is the ultimate hack to widening your gap between income and expenses. And that is the name of the game for early retirement.
