Today we’re going to talk about the changing role of print-related companies.

In the olden days we could master our own department, our own job, our own field of expertise. These days, things change quickly.

It seems, these days, we’re expected to be an expert in EVERYTHING.

Q1. 10 years ago, did you have a specific field of expertise? If yes, what was it?

Q2. Since that time, what areas of knowledge have you had to add to your job or career?

Q3. To learn new skills or expand into new areas have you gone back to school, read books, online or??? Details please!

Q4. How do you MAKE/MANAGE TIME to learn and master new areas of your job or industry?

Q4a.  Do you rely on others to help you expand your field of learning? Who or what?

Q5. Do you use any tips or tools known as “time management” per se?

Q5a. Do you use a coach for accountability or time management?

Q6. How do you envision your job or career in 5 years in terms of having to master more knowledge?

BONUS QUESTION: If you had to do your job in 2 hrs a day, how would you spend it and what would you give up?

Thank you to you all for another wonderful and eye-opening #printchat
