The Dedicated Nerd.
Rachel Botsman, the expert on the sharing economy, has labeled reputation and trust as the main success factors in future of business and work. It will build on your commitment to do great stuff, being a dedicated nerd. It’s about adjustable perseverance where you’re quitting the right thing at the right time, and it deals with feeling proud of what you’re doing and accomplish.
I meet many who are striving to be the best in their area but, best compared to whom and what? A better way might be to go for being unique, and people with this aspiration build a great reputation since they will never settle for less. They are bold and start before they are ready, releasing a Beta version of themselves. They are people worth talking about, they create a tribe and seldom need a resumé.
And, the road is open for all of us.
