In the 1800s for example, there was too little to do, it was scarce and hard to find entertainment.
Now there is too much to do. It’s overabundant and hard to decide.
In both eras, it’s easy to end up doing nothing. However, in the accelerating change of status quo over the last 100 years, there is a new opportunity. The opportunity to be a curator of experiences.
You don’t have to create the next hot restaurant. You don’t have to design the next cool escape room.
There is an opportunity to choose a group of people like singles, retired, networkers, engineers, those looking for friends, and create an experience for those groups. Treating the restaurants, attractions, and sights as components of a larger experience is now as viable an opportunity as chefs using ingredients and decor to create a restaurant. The best part is that it can be done with far less capital than those restaurants, movie theaters, or attractions.
If you’re looking for something “creative” as career, perhaps thinking about this is a new option for you.
