Jimmy McLoughlin OBE - How to Find Your Job of the Future and Life as a Stay-at-Home Dad
Show Notes

Today's guest is Jimmy McLoughlin OBE, speaking about one of my favorite topics: the future of jobs.

Jimmy is the former Special Adviser to the UK Prime Minister on business, specifically technology & entrepreneurship. During a period of momentous political change Jimmy helped shape the British government’s relationship with domestic and international businesses, and witnessed firsthand the dynamic between industry leaders, entrepreneurs and policy-makers.

Jimmy is passionate about helping people understand the exciting jobs that are being created every day by entrepreneurs and showcasing what the future of our economy looks like.

Now a full-time stay at home dad since the pandemic, Jimmy hosts the podcast Jimmy's Jobs of the Future, which invites guests to explore the future of the economy through the prism of jobs.
 
Listen as we discuss:

  • How Jimmy went from the Prime Minister's office to becoming a stay at home dad.
  • The underrepresented paternal instinct.
  • How can you be a stay at home dad and still be dad, not mom?
  • The jobs of the future and what's fueling unemployment beyond economic issues.
  • The new niches of the modern economy that can make you a living.
  • The growing role of creatives and influencers.
  • What would I decide  about my career if I were 22 in 2022?
  • Should you do what you love or what you're good at? (Or is that the same thing?)
  • Will AI replace most jobs?
  • It's an exciting but overwhelming time to be young going into the job market.
  • The best advice for finding your passion: wonder and wander.
