The Future of Businesses

Who’s heard of Hospice Care? They help you book a slot in heaven just before you die!
TIP : The future belongs only to businesses set up to revolutionize their industry. All businesses will be tech businesses too. Either become one or get consumed by one.
An innovative insurance company called me yesterday to  ask me to insure my both parents, and anyone above 70 in relation to their burials. I didn’t say God forbid, as a management consultant, I wanted to access their Qualitative Risk Management Model Canvass.
In the next 10 years, with safety, ergonomics and technology reducing any form of accidents at the same time when chemo, 3D printing of human parts, nanotechnology, biotechnology and more life support machines and dialysis centres will be  more compact and affordable for all clinics, 70 percent of deaths will be structural and very predictable. So I was talking to one of my techy mentees and he says “Mr Eizu, I may create an app that will help people calculate how many more years and days (up to seconds they will have more to live). It sounds scary yet valuable. That’s a fun way to make money.  He meant he will be very successful. Now over to you.
Who ever thought people will be able to buy cars and houses from mere blogging (there was no such career path just 10 years ago In Africa). I spoke to  a yellow cab taxi driver in Lagos a few days ago and he said that all they do is sleep more at the parks. He thinks people don’t have money for taxis anymore, he doesn’t know its because of Uber. Who ever thought that over a billion very intelligent and careful people including you will willingly submit their most personal details including names, emails, phone numbers, photos, where they live, things and who they love to Mark Zuckerberg. It’s called Facebook. Locally, no one saw these 20 year olds start Interswitch, NotJustOKay, Hexavia,  IrokoTV,  or Jobberman to revolutionalise their industries. Globally, who ever thought the biggest companies in the world would come out of no where  in just 10 years and take over companies that have been in existence for centuries. The Likes of Apple, Google and Facebook is gunning to be the first trillion dollar company.These companies are trying to revolutionalise everything , but they were  born out of people’s un-quenched thirst to know everything, so they did it so easily.
Welcome to the 21st century. We will have more weird ideas become very successful enterprises. We will have new kinds of jobs. Take for example,  hospice care is end-of-life care  career path. Hospice organizations will be a team of health care professionals and volunteers who will give medical, psychological, and spiritual support to people about to die. The goal of the care is to help people who are dying have peace, comfort, and dignity. That’s powerful. The caregivers try to control pain and other symptoms so a person can remain as alert and comfortable as possible. They might even help you book a slot in heaven while you exit earth. One more step,  Hospice programs also provide services to support a patient’s family after their customer is dead and gone. Wow.
Go Further Ahead for the future is sooner and stranger than you think. The world is thinking, what are you doing?
Be prepared. be the first to step into the future or you’ll be consumed by it. In the words of John F Kennedy, “Change is the law of life.  And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future”. In the words of the management guru Peter Drucker, “The best way to predict the future is to create it”.
How is your business bringing the future closer?
