There are four basic categories of people in the world which we all live in.
The four groups of people in our world are as follows
The largest group of people. Being an employee in 2013 is not a good position to be in, and that positioning will only get worse for people in this group as time goes on, and as more of our world coverts over to the ways of our thriving digital economy. First off, big businesses are going bankrupt and people are being laid off. The second reason is that all of the big businesses, and even small businesses, are migrating to the digital economy. The thought of self-checkouts never became a reality until lately. For example, since nearly one quarter to one half of all supermarket checkout lanes are now these self-operational machines, that same respective amount of people were laid off, simply because they were replaced by our digital world. This group of people are a part of our traditional economy.
These people typically work for themselves. Because they typically work for themselves, have it a little better off, however, there is very little leverage for specialists, as there is so much competition (competition consistently lowering prices, etc.). This group of people are yet again part of the traditional economy.
This group of people is our first category within the digital economy, and these people start online businesses. The appealing part of being a part of this group of people is that you have huge leverage. Once you learn a few new business principles, it is far easier to start a business in the digital economy than it ever was in the past. Most digital experts who start businesses and are successful were not born with a silver spoon in their mouth and did not spend thousands of dollars to get their business off the ground and profitable. Businesses in the digital economy can most often be started on a shoestring budget.
Product owners or creators who create these products in our digital economy are a part of this group. Because of the internet, they are able to grow at an astonishing speed. These people get more and more success, and more and more leverage. These people have much more freedom (financial, time, and geographical). People in this sector can work where they want, when they want, and how they want, and usually work just a couple hours per day to create and sustain a six, seven, or eight-figure income. The flexibility of time, money, and geographics is the most appealing aspect of being a part of this group.
