So it’s finally here! Today is the official release date of Risky Is the New Safe! As you know by now, it’s a mind-bending, head-rattling, thought-provoking look at the future: What will happen in it, what challenges will that create, and finally what opportunities all this will offer.
The philosophy running all through Risky Is the New Safe is congruent: there has never been a better time to be alive. There never existed more possibilities for creating wealth. And there has never been a better time to go from stone cold broke – to multi-millionaire. Or even multi-billionaire. Really.
So since today’s is launch day, I though it would be fun to start a series of posts on some of the multi-million- and multi-billion-dollar ideas either that we explore in the book, or will become apparent as you do some critical thinking and extrapolate forward from other projections in the book.
So welcome to…”Who Wants to Be a Billionaire! Part One…”
As we do the series each day, feel free to answer the questions posed with your ideas on the answers. Or keep your answers secret as you plot to how you will quickly bring something to market and become the next most-talked-about episode on Shark Tank!
Also, let me know when you think we’re asking the wrong questions, and suggest any other questions you believe will lead people to new and other multi-million- and multi-billion-dollar ideas!
So having said all that, here are some questions to ponder today….
The hectic pace of work and life will continue to accelerate. There are five billion people with smart phones and most of them are connected 24 hours a day. What challenges will that create, and what million- or billion-dollar opportunities will it present?
That hectic pace means that fake foods, fast foods, frozen foods, and microwaved foods will continue to increase as a percentage of our diets – which in turn means high cholesterol, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes will continue to increase. What challenges will that create, and what million- or billion-dollar opportunities will it present?
Those health challenges and explosion of pharmaceuticals and medical care will likely cause a backlash and drive a renaissance toward natural foods and healthy living at some point. What challenges will that create, and what million- or billion-dollar opportunities will it present?
Please share your thoughts and let the masterminding and brainstorming begin!
