Imagine walking into your workplace today and asking yourself this question: Is this the day I get fired?

You should do that. And your response to yourself should be “So What?” Frankly, the odds of losing your current position are higher than they have ever been, regardless of your age, education, or smarts. It is forecast that within 10-15 years, 40% of the workforce will be freelancers. Are you ready for that?

Prepare for agile career self-sufficiency by maintaining a quality network and dividing your time between working your current job and investing in your future. The antidote to fear is a plan.
