From chatting about opportunities in the 'new economy', how about something from one of the oldest professions? An entrepreneurial sex worker with a full-time assistant to help her with content creation and distribution. Impressive!
We're a different kind of service provider, but we try to take a similar approach to our marketing. We produce content that we hope is interesting and relevant for our clients and followers - just like this commentary. However, we're also aware that to most people, the law isn't as interesting as sex and it's reflected in the statistics.
Based on what we've seen from past posts, we expect that the number of views that we'll get with our commentary on this article will be substantially more than anything else we write about. That's regardless of the fact that what we write about in other posts on other topics are actually more important or have more serious consequences than this. So what does that mean? You actually only want to read about sex?
Interestingly, despite our various discussions about how technology has changed the way we live, behave and especially how we can make a living, there are some things that just don't change. When it comes to new technology, the sex industry is one of the first to find a use for it. There are lots of examples of that throughout history and across cultures. Each advancement has had some sexual application in some way and naturally so, it's one of the basic human needs and desires.
So who do you think will be funding development in areas like robotics and virtual reality? Of course, there could be many other commercial and consumer applications eventually, but don't be surprised if sex robots and VR pornography are the first or at least the first to be talked about. That's the reality that we live in...
... which is kinda sad for lawyers. Yes, back to lawyers.
So while the sex industry is embracing new technology and moving ahead in leaps and bounds, lawyers and the legal industry are left languishing behind, lost and forgotten. Unless, of course, we can hitch a ride and capture your attention with articles like this.

Are auction clearance rates the best indicator of the property market?
Properties are still being bought and sold even if they're not being sold at auction. Most sellers want to avoid the risk of having their property passed in, and the message that potentially sends to the market.
It's obvious that these little 'rewards' and 'collectables' are popular with both Coles and Woolworths releasing their own marketing gimmicks at different times. They're popular in their own right, creating a sub-market, and the draw the crowds giving consumers the incentive to shop and spend. It's a creative marketers dream and it works.
... at least this time, it seems that they're made from paper and not plastic.
ALDI has previously said it wouldn't follow this same strategy, but should they or do they even need to? They already create their own hype at different times with their special product ranges, and if the lines outside of stores and the close-hysteria within is any indicator, the most popular is probably when they release their winter season ski clothing range.

Are you in or are you out? You have until Thursday night (3am Friday) to opt out - but if you don't, your record will be automatically created in the Government's online database of health information.
The headline might seem like a dream job to many, but like any job, it's not for everyone. Be sure - it's more than just getting paid to drink beer.
A marketer's job is all about attracting and maintaining the consumer's attention. The internet has changed the way and the scale (dramatically) that we can achieve that goal. If you understand this, then you'll also know that this job is not about drinking beer.
As much as we're talking about the property market and property prices, this is really about people. Being able to successfully navigate the property market and which way property prices are likely to go is all about understanding and predicting people's behaviour.
It's not a perfect science by far, but drawing on experience and observation is as good a place. We found the Canadian case study used in this article, especially the comparison between Vancouver and Toronto, to be very interesting. Drawing parallels to our own property market and by comparing Sydney and Melbourne puts things into context and perspective. Perhaps this article offers some valuable insight and we recommend it to our readers as well.
