"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

We are moving from the Age of the Atom to the Age of the Gene.

Science offers openings in the fields of nanotechnology, molecular engineering, biotechnology, & genetics. beyond these areas, opportunities are constantly being created in the domains of information, communication, & entertainment.

Here is a sampling of areas where future careers will emerge & create opportunities for economic growth.


This is one of the fastest growing areas of business. People want to feel better, live longer, look younger. This need will breed services that offer advice, treatments, medications, gadgets, minerals, vitamins, & exercise regimes that prolong physical existence & well being.


People have an innate desire to become FUN-atics!

There will always be a demand for more thrills, challenges, suspense, adventure, excitement, & aesthetic pleasure. These desires will be fed by all sorts of channels such as videos, films, virtual reality, theatre, music, sports, travel, 7 death-defying experiences such as bungee-jumping, hand-gliding, & deep-sea diving.


You may take people out of the family, but you can't take the family out of people.

In spite of family feuds, people will always strive to give their loved ones an abundance of whatever brings them joy & success. This will create an array of products & services that provide love, care, education & inspiration so as to ensure the welfare of loved ones.


We are in the Learning Economy, & most human beings respond to scenarios that exhilarate them.

'Lifelong learning', a constant desire for news, catering to curiosity, insights into why things happen & the way they do; these phenomena all mesh into a realisation that every connects to everything else. Creative services & products in these areas will always have ready markets.


Most humans are social animals with an in-built need to connect to other humans. Either directly, or virtually, with or without technology, we a species that must ;touch base' with others. To cater to this instinct, there will be a limitless market for faster, easier, cheaper, &more convenient devices that will satisfy these promptings.


We are rarely satisfied with how we look. There will thus be a constant demand for products & services that aim to make us look lovelier, sexier, younger, fitter, leaner, & smarter.

Our appeal factor will be enhanced by an inexhaustible conveyor belt of items that deliver on hair do's & don'ts, dyes, skin care, organic diets, fashionable clothing, teeth & breath gadgetry, & an unending stream of available advice from practitioners in a range of disciplines that promise to leave you blessed with secrets of eternal youth.

Services will also include a smorgasbord of counsellors, coaches, healers, & gurus to address the stress & distress that have become a part of our lives.


Wealth is not how much you have but how little yo need. Nevertheless, whatever you have, needs to be managed, in order to ensure financial security. As a result, there will be an almost limitless market for financial services... advice, planning & management.

Providers will offer schemes to maximise return on savings, & insurance against risk & misfortune.

Whilst money may not guarantee happiness, it is a means for realising our dreams. This suggests that there will always be a market for markets.

"Many people will worry so much about managing their careers, but rarely spend half that much energy managing their LOVES. I want to make my life, not just my job, the best it can be. The rest will work itself out."

~ Reese Witherspoon, American Actress, 39;
