This can run the gamut from website builders to Alexa skills. People that master these will move ahead as machines can interact with each other more and more.

The world of work will be turned on its head in the next 5-10 years. A side hustle or series of side hustles will teach you a lot and could turn into full-time money. You will also be more prepared if you lose your job and be able to recover faster.
