Trends in Today's Economy

in Economics

There are three major trends happening today that, if positioned properly, a person could do very well for him or herself.

1. The Wellness Revolution  --  There is a greater emphasis on wellness today than there ever has been.  Wellness is thought of as more than just an absence of illness. It is living a full healthy life well into what is considered the Golden Years. If a person makes the right choices in regards to their health and nutrition over the course of their life, they have a much better chance of avoiding the health problems that plague so many elderly people today.  Products and services that cater to these people are the ones to look for today.  Which leads me to number two.

2. Anti-Aging, Skincare and Toxin-Free products  --  Everyone wants to look and feel younger.  And they are willing to spend money to do it.  Research is showing us that the toxins in most skincare products can build up in our systems and possibly be leading to the rise we see in certain diseases.  People are literally dying to be beautiful and it doesn't have to be that way.  Those products and services that help people in this area will do very well in the years to come.  One of the groups looking for these products and services right now is number three.

3. The Baby Boomers  --  There are over 70 million baby boomers in the United States alone.  If you compare  baby boomers to a basketball moving through a garden hose, any industry on the front side of the ball will flourish for those twenty years it takes for it to move through.  Consider Gerber baby food, Buster Brown shoes, Mattel and Hasbro toys.  These companies really got their start by giving the baby boomers and their parents what they wanted or needed. 

When looking at these three trends you can see how they relate to each other.  If you give the baby boomers, trend three, what they want, trends one and two, you will be able to ride that wave for the next twenty years.
