Plenty of average people would benefit from some sartorial advice, particularly from a professional.Enter Style for Hire, a start-up that connects you to a vetted, handpicked stylist in your city. So far, they cover New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and the other big American metro areas. Stylists offer counsel on what clothes to keep or toss (“closet audits”), how to repurpose or better tailor your existing wardrobe, and take you shopping—all while accounting for your body type, clothing preference, spending habits, workplace dress code and more. They can direct a photo shoot for a small business or help an office team look sharper for client presentations.For their part, stylists who join the organization benefit from its partnerships with retailers, free publicity and the professional development that comes with networking with peers.There are other new, entrepreneurial companies out there that connect people with personalized, professional lifestyle advice and services, from custom clothes makers to organizational gurus, and that connect independent consultants with their counterparts across the country. We’re sure to see more.Those who think that automation is about to throw us all out of work are barking up the wrong tree.

Our wants are almost infinite; there are a huge number of potential services and products that don’t exist yet, but that we will all ‘need’ once they come online. The successes of the next generation will be the people who figure out what these new needs are and how they can be satisfied at a profit.Don’t worry; no matter how smart the machines get and how many clever tricks they learn to do, human beings are going to keep each other busy far into the future.
