Hello There! I am Vrishank Chandavarkar.
Born in 1987, Mumbai India, not only am I an early millennial but I’m also part of a generation born in a time of a rapidly changing world witnessing unprecedented global events. My professional experiences over the first two decades of the 21st century have not only been defined but shaped by this period. A TV journalist turned internet professional with an expertise in Start-ups and Venture Capital, I’m currently a participant and contributor in creating a new paradigm for the nature of work & employment. I created the Voice Author as a side hustle in 2017 with an objective to monetize my talent of Voice Overs. By 2020 however, I’ve realized that it could be a platform for a much larger purpose. That of one, to help and guide the new workforce into the new paradigm of employment.
Why do I care about "The New Paradigm of Employment"?
The two decades between 2000 to 2020, is a period during which the nature of employment and basic income has changed forever. It is a time during which the effects of high speed internet coupled with the effects of the Global Financial Crisis and large pandemics like the Corona viruses have firmly established a new industry, that of the "the Gig Economy''. Every year a larger number of the overall workforce is becoming an established participant in this system willingly or unwillingly. To ignore it has proved detrimental to many like me who’ve been caught in myriad problems, be it lay-offs, student debt or Job redundancies. These are the constant troubles my generation and the immediate generations that follow are and will continue to face. The nuances of these new market dynamics creates consequences of its own, like increasing the median age of time of marriage, having 1 or no children, a change in spending priorities and most importantly deteriorating mental health. The very nature of the way we earn a living is changing and it is having negative consequences in the interim. This topic needs debate & research and most importantly experienced navigators to make the transition from the conventional to the new paradigm.
How do I hope the Voice Author will help?
Surf the internet for the discourse today and you will find a lot of the voices out there that talk about trending words like "Passive Income" "Financial Freedom" "Finding your Passion" without any context of the present and the future. Hence, they are not relatable to the majority of the workforce who are increasingly becoming frustrated with the status quo. They're given hopes and promises without a context to do it in. They want to make change without realizing why and for whom they are doing it, thus creating a quagmire in the market of unsustainable business models. My experiences have taught me that there are 5 key elements that every professional must have a clear understanding of, if they want to go from "Bagging their First job, to creating their own job" the 5 key elements that will help them deal with the challenges of transitioning to the new paradigm of employment. And so The Voice Author will be a platform for discussion and debate on these 5 key elements for a successful transition to the new paradigm.
Who do I hope benefits from The Voice Author?
