Abeg bro...I will suggest you leave school and start real hussle o. Nigeria is a failed state....get that fact for sure. I'm pretty sure what your father is suffering from is glaucoma. It happened to my mom and she has now lost her vision 100%. By the way, it's genetic meaning you all have to get your eyes tested and begin treatment when the signs are in view.

I pray you get the opportunity to travel to either UK or USA because that's the quickest way you can start supporting your family. Even the minimum wage you get over there ($ 8 an hour
40 hours a week can easily support your family when you convert it

Time is really not on your side and the fear you are feeling is your gut feeling telling you to do something fast

Go on dating sites and put your best pics to woo marriageable girls from abroad and please don't ask for money even after they have arranged your papers to come and join them. In obodo even first class grads are driving buses over there and doing security. No one dey watch you there

Alternatively, if you can drive then the world is your oyster. There are people who want drivers to take their cars and deliver money. Uber , Bolt and Taxify can also be done at the same time.

All in all, you really need to start making money before things get out of hand. You can always go back to school infact there are many online schools now but owo nikoko

Best of luck bro

Well I'm not in 9ja, your best bet is Youtube, there are lots of materials on Yotube and Google that are free. All it requires is time and data. Once you can master photoshop, you can master anything.

Okay I will try.
Thanks

Bro I was once in ur shoes. But I noticed early that u don't need to wait for the future. U dream it exactly how u want it and create one for urself.
U need the following:
1. Self confidence.
2. Self motivation
3. A mentor
4. A target of what who u want to be in life
5. Have a plan and follow it
6. U need discipline, focus. zeal to succeed and never look back.
7. Focus on a few like-minded friends.
8. Leave women now and make money. They will come in numbers when u blow up.
9. Chase profitability (being ur own boss) and not salary (job).

Note: It's not about ur religion, sex, tribe or age, u can succeed legitemately just like me and so many others who came from the slum. Never give up!!!
You forget the most important requirement: Money. If you don't have money, you can't do anything

TLDR version; I am a graduating student with extension that can't see any plan for his future and with a lot of expectation on his shoulder, with a dad struggling in his job
I need help...

Have a plan in skol and post skol. Have more than one and different options of what u can learn or do and work towards them seriously.

Always have a plan.

Let me be plain with you. I learnt web design as a student. Infact school is only place you can learn any skills u wish.

Now I offer my digital skills on fiverr and upwork including sourcing for clients on Facebook. I make at least 30k per month.

You see that animation you wanted to learn. It is a gold mine for advert company. 2d or 3d animations, just find some one to teach you. It won't take you 3 weeks
Good day Sir, im also a student looking to learn a skill(web development). I have 70k in my account, would it be wise if I spend it on acquiring a laptop to learn the said skill since I have no source of income
Re: I'm Scared About My Future, Career Wise by AntiNigerian: 9:31pm On Jun 08

Hello everyone,
Bear with me pls, this might be a long read and I apologise in advance for any grammatical error.

Recently I've had a lot of thinking about my life after school, how I can finally support my family after I graduate this year, I am the first son and the first child in my mom's extended family, so I have a lot of people looking up to me, and we only have one source of income in my family which is my dad, and recently he developed a health condition which affects his eyesight, and that is making his work nearly impossible.
The problem now that I'm facing is that I literally don't know what I want to do after school, normally I've had this notion that I will cross that bridge when I reach there, but now the bridge is so close and I have no idea of how to cross, to make things worse, I saw my result this semester and I failed two courses which will make me to come back for an extension, it makes me sad whenever I think about it, cos my dad will have to continue his risky job (thats even riskier cos of his eyesight) for a year or so
Sad part is that I can't even think of any side job that might be profiting me while in school or any work that I can do without a certificate, my friends aren't giving me anything useful, I wanted to learn graphics design, I'm passionate about editing photo and videos, I also wanted to learn animation back when I was in secondary school, but my parents killed that dream telling me to go for a professional course, back then they were still thinking school is the only answer to being successful, now I regret allowing them to let that passion die.
Right now I need you guys advice if you have any concerning my situation, or if you've being in a similar situation like mine, I need to know how you made it out successfully

I will accept your criticism, advice and whatever piece of info you can share with me

A step at a time please, be easy on yourself

Pray to God and trust Him for the best

I can understand where you're coming from, brother

The thing is, the internet is now a fast lane to wealth if you know how to leverage it very well. And one of the things you can do with it is to sell. Either you sell information or products that you created, or you sell that of another person

I'd advise that if you have at least 50k, you sign up for affiliate marketing. You only need your phone and internet connection, plus the will to succeed. All you need to be doing is to connect a buyer to a seller as the middleman and you'll collect your sweet commission with each sale. You don't need to create any product because someone else already did it

Well... if you find this interesting, you can contact me for more information via my siggy

Bro invest your little money, while you can... Start selling pure water and cold mineral, there's demand for it now and the comeback is cool, you can make N1200 every day on minerals alone plus 800 on pure water making 2000 every day that's 60,000 per month and 15k per week.

Bro your problem is fear of the unknown, Bleep university education because the market is saturated right now with alot of graduate no job, we have 6 graduates in our house no job. If you want to make it in life, then be ready to work very hard, go get that small bus from a micro finance bank and you could be making 5k everyday after balancing thats if you work very had, or get a bank loan to get a car and use it for uber. And lastly you are the first son non mean say you go carry the whole family problem for your head or else you go die quick and them go live life without you, use your brain make everybody carry their cross am talking from experience because am the first son of my family too

When I said I learnt filmmaking myself, I meant, I learn it with my money. Not parents.

There are many courses in filmmaking, directing, editing, cinematography, lights, costume, set designing etc. You just have to pick the ones you're interested in. I learnt in hdfa Abuja. You can google search about it to know more.
I learnt editing. Under editing, there's animation, normal editing, motion graphics etc.
You just have to pick the one you're interested in and what you can afford.

Ok... now I get u...
Under filmmaking, u went for only editing (animation, motion, normal editing)? That's nice. Though some do teach u only normal video editing and not the rest.
