It is important to be informed. In the past, knowledge was power. There were few but very knowledgeable people who could tell us where the trends will move.
Today, everyone is an expert. Anyone can create video and try to convince us they are right!
Being an expert is a loose definition.
This is why when you read news and other articles you must be really selective about whom you listen to.
Otherwise you might bet your future on the wrong trend and someone else's agenda!
