Depending on your job, this episode is going to be a relief or a cause for concern. The good news is that automation is not going to get rid of the need for human work. In fact, technology is creating new categories of jobs that are abundant in the workforce. However, some jobs that were once seen as the holy grail of job security, coding in particular, are the easiest to be automated away. Alexandra Levit, author of the new book Humanity Works: Merging Technologies and People for the Workforce of the Future, joins us to explain the types of jobs that will be left to the machines and what will be left behind.

Maggie Jackson is back with a new edition of her book, with new data and looking at our new relationship to the machines that surround our life.

Women have been told to lean in but, more often than not, what women want is to “lean in-between.” Kathryn Sollmann, author of the new book Ambition Redefined, is here to advocate for those women, the ones who want to work but have no interest in climbing the corporate ladder. There are lots of options out there to grow wealth that don’t involve heading to the C-suite.
Kathryn Sollmann is a recognized leader in helping women navigate the many stages of work and life. Through her blog and coaching firm, 9 Lives for Women, she is one of few voices strongly encouraging women to always work-at every age and life stage-to achieve long-term financial security. Her emphasis on women’s financial independence has generated event-sponsorship funding from corporate wealth-management giants, including AXA Advisors, Fidelity, Raymond James, Cigna and Wells Fargo. With good humor, no-nonsense delivery and the ability to educate and motivate, Kathryn is a frequent speaker, and an inspirational voice for women in college to retirement years. A frequent media resource, her expertise has been called upon by The Today Show, NPR, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Money magazine, CNBC & more.
