HotSkillsPayBills is...
Career Sanity in the Age of Job Insecurity

The days of working for one company for 30 years and retiring with a pension and a gold watch are LONG GONE. 

Some of us work for 3 companies in one day! This is just the new world of work we live in. 

  • No steady paycheck for decades. 
  • No lifetime employer-provided benefits.
  • No pension.

That's why we are creating HotSkillsPayBills. We see three gaping holes in the new world of work:

  1. Safety Net: We believe that healthcare is a human right and shouldn't be attached to employment. We are carefully crafting a portable group insurance and benefits package that isn't tied to one company. It is tied to you. We buy in bulk and pass the savings on to you. Great for freelancers and self-employed business owners, but also peace-of-mind for full-time employees currently in a job... just in case you ever get laid off. COBRA runs out in 18 months, then what? I faced this dilemma and it was so stressful. Our plan will include health insurance, dental, vision, disability, life insurance and retirement savings plans so you don't have to take a job or stay in a job "just for the benefits." You can choose your career path based on what's right for you. 
  2. Marketplace: We believe that as jobs get more insecure, we need to help each other connect with income opportunities. We're creating a marketplace where you get rewarded when you refer work to each other. How cool is that? We also help you build your body of work so you are known for a particular skill. Our core audience for this product is freelancers and self-employed consultants and experts, but we welcome anyone who wants to develop a side-income stream while working full-time in a job. In life, sometimes we will be employees, sometimes we will be free-agents, and other times we will be employers. We create community so you can find mentors and collaborators at each stage. 
  3. Certifications: Today, certifications can be as important as a fancy degree from an Ivy League university. We help you connect with the RIGHT certifications that actually have market value. Protect and increase your earning potential with in-demand skills. Learn from the experts who have walked the path before you.
