4. Plan your career as if you were a company of one.
You will spend more time working remotely at home in a company which will be looking for ways to plug and play into talent in the ways they access services (software as a service, everything as a service).
Think of yourself as a better paid Uber driver with benefits if you work for a company. If your expertise is needed at that time or in a particular market and location, and your collaboration and ability to work in teams is highly rated you will be in demand. If not, as companies manage and monitor costs and increasingly find ways to plug into resources all the time everywhere you will find yourself parked permanently.

How many of the things you have, the clothes you wear, the routines and travel you are you using or are you missing?
