Of all the online e-courses you could do, why this one?

Whether you're starting out in your career, or settling into one - you must have realized by now that the working world is not what you once imagined it to be.

You've always had a strong sense that success was your own responsibility, and you've been prepared to work damn hard to achieve it. But the sheer number of obstacles that have cropped up in your life are keeping you from taking those critical next steps! That's because being a millennial today, is like being a plate spinner in a circus.

You have ten plates that are constantly in motion, just to get you through the day. The moment you spin the one on the left, the one on the far right begins to wobble and destabilize!

There is an overwhelming sense that if you stop for just a second, everything will come crashing down. Here's the thing - you're never going to be the main act, if you keep spinning plates.

Are you even being paid well for this constant state of busy-ness?

Always-On, Without Reward

Harvard Business Review publishes studies on how millennials are workaholics, straining under the burden of an always-on culture - while reports are being released showing how you're earning way less than Gen Xers did between the ages of 15-35.

You're doing more, and you're being paid less for it.

Mix that in with the ongoing debt crisis, and the rising cost of living - and you're not just spinning plates, you're spinning them in quicksand. No wonder you're being called the most stressed out generation of all time!

Thanks to the recession, mounting debt, and escalating demands on your time - the rat race has become a torture treadmill and there's no off switch. If you don't start using practices like The 80/20 Mindset to get ahead now, you're going to wake up one day, 60 years old, with nothing tangible to show for it.

Fact is - you were right all along.
It's your responsibility to succeed.

It's your responsibility to recognise when you have too many plates on the go, and no time to focus on what matters. Right now, I'm offering you a moment of change. It's part of how 80/20 leaders operate - they see the opportunities between the clutter that will make the difference, and help them advance.

  • This could be the first 80/20 opportunity you seize.
  • This career development course is it.

It's the change that will help you drastically improve your career.
I'll show you how.

Yes!

Do you keep your eye on economic trends?

The state of the world impacts your career, and with so much change on the horizon, both eyes are needed to see what may be ahead for you.

One trend in particular needs to be noticed right now - gaps are getting wider.

The Winners and The Workers

Imagine a vast chasm dividing two groups of working people. In the first group, you have large numbers, in the second you have very few. The large group are worker bees, they do as they're told and are subject to the whim of the second smaller group, who lead, direct and manage.

Predictably, the leading few have infinitely more than the working many.

In the past you may have seen this divide in thirds, with a third group that is better off than the first, but not quite as unburdened as the second. With ever-widening gaps, this group is dwindling.

As technology continues to advance, globalisation will place pressure squarely on the individual. You're not just competing with those around you anymore, but with everyone, everywhere.

Because of this, gaps will continue to widen:

  • Between the desirable in your field, and everyone else.
  • Between the best, and everyone else.
  • The highest earning, and everyone else.

It's not enough to be good anymore, because the middle ground has collapsed.
The only freedom to be found is on the smaller side of this equation!
The Pareto Principle is here to help.

Choose Early, Aim High

Outsourcing hit record levels this year in the UK. Employees are entering and exiting jobs at an alarming rate - which means staff turnover is at an all-time high. The same thing is happening in South Africa and Australia.

And when employee turnover is high it cripples productivity - not just for the brand, but for the individual hoping to make progress in their career.

  • You stop learning.
  • You stop growing.

You start moving across and down, instead of up.
And lateral movement is a career killer.

The gaps that are being created are forcing educated, hard-working millennials into lower-paying jobs for longer. They are making it harder for unemployed millennials to find decent work once they've been out of work. For dedicated employees to get paid what they are worth over time.

If you don't seize the initiative now, and make yourself one of the vital few - you will become one of the trivial many, so far separated from freedom and success that it becomes a pipe dream.

Online e-learning courses like this one don't come along very often.
The 80/20 Mindset is a bridge.

Learn how to take control of your career, and cross over while you still can!

I'm in!

Are you building your career on a solid foundation, or on sand?

Some people know exactly what they want from their careers. From day 1 they have a plan, and they know where they're going. These individuals build their careers on stone. When turbulent times hit and everyone else is subject to black swan events like the recession - these individuals manage to thrive despite the storms raging around them.

The strength of your career matters.
Will it stand when troubled times strike?
You are working in a highly volatile global economic climate.

Most people don't know what they want to do over the next 40 years. Even if you do, you can bet that external influences are going to knock you off course. You have to factor in multiple job and career changes, unexpected life events and new technological developments - and realise that any progress made can be swiftly blown away, like it never existed.

A career planning course like this one, can help.

Most people are building their careers on sand.
And sand is unstable, soft and weak.
Nothing will stand on a foundation of sand.

Every job you do is supposed to enhance your career. Even if that career suddenly changes direction and heads somewhere new and unexpected. Moving ahead into 2020, you need to face the reality that the cybersea is a desert. In the UK, AUS and SA, millennials are being forced to work for companies who have to focus on performance and competitiveness, placing brand growth above individual growth.

The repercussions will be severe for the unwary and unprepared.

In the blink of an eye, your entire career can come tumbling down - from external events that have absolutely nothing to do with who you are, or how well you do your job.

The boom in non-permanent employment, contingent work arrangements, downsizing, delayering, restructuring and re-organizing to manage technology changes and global competition - has resulted in your career instability. Things are stagnant. Uncertain. Stressful.

You need to know how to build your career on a solid foundation.

That means learning how to take advantage of change, destabilised environments and ever-shifting markets. The 80/20 Mindset e-course shows you how.

Have you heard the term digital disruption just yet?

You're alive during a tech boom.

This boom will change the shape and nature of your working life in the near future.
You can ignore the ticking, but you can't ignore the coming explosion of transformation.

With unprecedented innovation and invention automating processes that millions of people once had to do manually - you would be wise to consider how progressive technologies like robotics, artificial intelligence and machine learning will impact your career.

Everything Will Change, Forever

According to McKinsey, this unprecedented tech boom will seriously disrupt the world of work, and the global workforce along with it.

Some 5% of jobs will be fully automated, while 60% of jobs will be partially automated by about 30% very soon. One thing is certain - highly skilled workers are rapidly growing in demand.

All in all - 50% of the global economy will be affected in the short term.

Technology can and will disrupt the way that you work - if it hasn't already - over the next 30+ years. But this also presents a unique opportunity for 80/20 leaders.

The individuals who are best positioned to educate and advance technology in their fields will be the people brands turn to in the future.

This requires a specific kind of growth mindset - the kind the 80/20 Mindset advocates.

This online e-course teaches you:

  • To specialise in something that plays to your strengths
  • It shows you how to be flexible and adaptable, to embrace change
  • It gives you the ability to spot opportunities for advancement in your field
  • To calculate risk for more accurate decision-making

Don't let technology force you into a job you hate. Instead, take action now and learn how to use the changing technological landscape as a springboard to a stronger, more lucrative career.

The robots are coming. Best be ready when they do.
This is how.

What are the ingredients of a successful career?

Your career is made up of the effort you put in, the successes you get out, and how you represent those successes to the world. Positions of leadership, prestigious projects, amazing results, innovations - all of these elevate your status as someone of growing value in the workforce.

Have you ever thought about who you are, in your field?
Reputation and influence are the new currencies, especially online.

As brands and employers use the internet to find the right people for the work they need, reputation and the influence attached to your reputation - will be the magnetic factors that matter.

In other words - who you are in your field, and what you've done and represented online is important. Perhaps more important now than most people want to believe.

  • A strong reputation results in confident recommendations
  • It opens up avenues of opportunity across multiple brands and geographic locations
  • It provides proof of your value for future employers

There are only 2 types of people in the world -
Those in demand, and everyone else!

Individuals in demand are seen as highly skilled, they get paid more, and they advance in their careers quickly, almost effortlessly.

Knowing how to position yourself is a skill that you won't learn at school, at university or in your job.

It would shock you how many people are forming opinions about you based on your online reputation.

In 2016, 84% of companies in the UK were recruiting people via social media, and this is happening increasingly in South Africa and in Australia too.

Your online data tells a story about you. And it's being tracked and monitored by potential employers already.

What you do - who you are - how you are represented online
- these are modern career pillars.

The 80/20 Mindset e-course teaches you to focus on results-orientated work, so that you make performance an integral part of how you operate and excel.

It shows you that connecting with the right people through this cooperative mindset is the fastest way to fuel an impressive online presence.

Grow your reputation with the 80/20 practices found in this career e-course. This is how.

I'm ready!

Have you ever wondered how to succeed in your specific field?

You're missing something fundamental - the knowledge on 'how-to' succeed!

Career success is a learned behaviour, but it's not something commonly spoken about or shared in your specific context. That's why acquiring that critical knowledge is extremely hard.

But Google will tell you that 'how-to' questions are among the most asked of all search enquiries!

Number 5 on their 2017 list is 'how to make money' while number 8 is 'how to write a cover letter' - clearly people want to know how to get better jobs with greater rewards.

You want to know how, but perhaps you haven't known the right questions to ask.

The Meaning of How

When you begin to question your personal practices, behaviours and mindset, it can reveal a lot of gaps in what you think you know.

One single question has always helped me find my way to answers.

'How does it work?'

In other words, in what way and by what means was something achieved or not achieved. This information is acquired through the combination of securing mentors and curating knowledge from the mentors that inspire you the most.

The best leaders create other leaders - I firmly believe that. But I also believe, individuals that don't self-identify as leaders have mistaken the word and the meaning behind it.

Leaders come in all sorts of flavours. You cannot succeed unless you lead.

That's because leadership jolts you out of one mindset and places you in another. It makes you accountable, even if you're only accountable to yourself!

True leaders have to know how things work. For themselves, and for others.
And that is why they succeed - because they are forced to discover 'how-to' every single day.

The real power of how-to happens when you accept yourself as a leader.

The great thing about The 80/20 Mindset e-course is that it shapes 80/20 leaders who are in control of their own career destinies.

And it begins with that one search term -

'How to be successful in my career'

This online e-course breaks down the mindset and actions you need to practice daily to get to where you want to go. It shows you in what way and by what means you will succeed.

Answering Questions Like:

  • What Do I Do?
  • How Do I Do It?
  • When Do I Do It?
  • Where Do I Do It?
  • Who Will Help Me Do It?

When you know how-to, career success is a lot easier.
Be a leader. Do this career development course and learn how.

Do you know how to calculate risk?

We live in a risk-averse society that strangely idolizes people that manage to take enormous risks and succeed. But the science of risk-taking is not something that is widely studied.

According to Investopedia, Millennials are the most risk-averse generation since the Great Depression. Yet you're also the most financially responsible, because you expect the worst to happen.

You rely on what you know, your intuition, and advice from those around you.

Unfortunately this creates a system of averages, which is great - if you want to be average. If you want something more, something beyond what those around you have - it makes it darn-near impossible to assess risk in a practical way.

Not knowing how to deal with risk - is the biggest risk of all.

And it's a silent, progressive destroyer of dreams.

The inability to recognise opportunity and act on it when it presents itself has been an on-going stumbling block in your career.

Getting certified in The 80/20 Mindset will teach you what you need to know about recognising opportunity and calculating risk. Will you stand apart, and realise that this e-course could be the knowledge you've been lacking all along?

Tell me - do any of these ring a bell?

  • You get passed over for promotion. Again.
  • You don't get a pay increase, even though everything is getting more expensive.
  • Your boss is not interested in change, improvement or innovation
  • There is a total lack of leadership in your company
  • You just don't know what you want to do with your career, so many options!
  • You don't really know what you should be doing with your day, so you just work
  • You reach for superficial achievements, but they never make you feel better
  • Your job is not fulfilling, and you get bored a lot
  • There is nothing worth learning that actually helps you in your job
  • You have no creative freedom. Your only function is to do as you are told
  • You don't like the people you work with, and there are always new people problems

If you identify with any of these - The 80/20 Mindset e-course will help you.

This is an incredible e-course, created by a group of super-performers to help you take that big first step to something better. To practicing a proven success-mindset that works!

It will teach you the 80/20 practices that will enhance every aspect of your working life.

The only risk here, is regret.
