One of the biggest advantages of the 21st century is that no knowledge is out of reach. If there is anything that one wishes to learn and be the best at it, they can do it anytime, any place and anywhere. The downside to this is that skills that are scarce today are available in plenty tomorrow. It is therefor necessary to have a sound understanding of not just one, but at least of couple of important industries and their businesses.
