Training my replacements was awkward and it stung. No, I wasn’t forewarned that I’d be training my replacements, but I saw the writing on the wall a long time before it happened.
It was a challenging time because I had worked hard for my skills. Really hard! But I realized that knowing how to code wasn’t enough.
I needed to couple my tech skills with a better understanding of business, the driving forces of market economies, and what I call the conscious use of technology.
So after I got outsourced and was confronted with being unemployed, I asked myself a question: what skills could I master that would make me indispensable?
And then I got an answer loud and clear: blockchain.
