AI is stealing my job!

Yup, eventually it will probably take mine too. I hope so.

I'm not worried about it though.

In 1836 there were two men named Hiram Moore and John Hascall of Kalamazoo County, Michigan.

They invented the Bell machine.

That same year Cyrus McCormick was granted a patent for his famous mechanical reaper.

What does this have to do with you?

Nothing unless you are a farmer.

These were both precursors to the modern combine that allows farmers to reap 150 acres of wheat a day.

Using a scythe, a single farmer would be able to reap an acre in a day.

You may be able to see where I am going with this.

I grew up in central Saskatchewan in Canada in a small town named Prince Albert.

We were farmers.

I wasn't, but a lot of people around us were.

I wasn't very far removed from farming.

This isn't the story of most people these days.

We don't live in an agricultural world anymore.

Farmers can work their own land instead of hiring workers to do the same.

This is because of the modern $750,000 combine that they purchase.

The invention of AI has changed things.

Just like the farm equipment.

We can't put the genie back in the bottle.

From Chat GPT to Adobe Firefly, we have so many options for AI and so many different iterations to give us so much!

Will it take away jobs?

Affirmative, it will.

Will it make life better?

Yes, definitely.

What will I do if it takes my job?

Adapt! Thrive! Learn and teach.

I am a fractional customer service director. AI is going to be where a lot of people are going to go with customer service because it's cheaper and more profitable.

People don't know where to go for this. We have a great AI and automation person that can help you.

If you want to learn about getting an AI bot for your company and save money, message me or comment that you want to meet.

We use a great customer service chat bot that can help people with the right set-up take a lot of stress off of the customer service team making them better at their jobs.

The reason we have such a great life now that isn't an agricultural society is because we have the combine.

AI is todays combine.

Don't be afraid of AI, it's here to make life better for those who can adapt.
