What's makes the difference between a thriving entrepreneur and a failing one?

If you mentioned her OFFER, BRANDING etc

You are not wrong

Yet far from it

And you are about to find out the difference maker

With the initiative of NYSC to help create a workforce of skilled graduate through SAED program

It is alarming so far this goal hasn't been absolutely effective, especially with the constant increase in cost of living and unemployment level

To effectively illustrate the crisis on our hand

Meet Vivian a Graduate of Business Administration.

After graduating from the university, she decides to serve her father land and gets posted to Edo state for her service year.

Fortunately she learns about the SAED program of the NYSC and commits to learn and perfecting the skill of Leather Works

Since most people wear shoes, sandals and the likes, it sure going to be a Lucrative venture

Now after her service year she relocates back home and start using her skills

But 2 month in post service, Vivian isn't making enough through her skill and is bearly surviving

Yet Her biggest challenge is Not knowing how to fix the Problem

So she does the Next best thing to make ends meet, dust up her CV and started job hurting

And just like the “Value of the naria keeps Dropping” her effort in her leather works declined... Only to hopefully be resurrected some day when “everything don settle”

This sound familiar because it's the reality of most ex-Corp members

You might ask

What was the Problem?

The problem is the reason you keep telling that Vendor you are not interested

She doesn't know how to identify those who need Her Skill the Most and How to Market it to them[b

This is what most serving and ex - corpers despite going through the SAED program lack

However now more than ever you can easily master this skill to profit from your skill

Because come the end of 11 Months, nothing sucks more than investing your money and time to mastery a skill and not been able to build a life for yourself through It.

Are you Skilled yet challenged with Identifying your Target Audience and Want to learn how to identify and attract customers for your skill?

While Social, Emotional, and Ethical Development (SAED) is undoubtedly crucial for personal growth, focusing solely on it may overlook the practical skills necessary for professional success. In today's fast-paced world, individuals need a balanced approach that includes technical proficiency, critical thinking, and adaptability. Solely emphasizing SAED might lead to a lack of competitiveness in the digital age where technical skills and digital literacy are highly valued.

Moreover, the job market increasingly demands individuals with a well-rounded skill set, encompassing both interpersonal and technical abilities. Ignoring the latter may hinder one's ability to navigate the complexities of contemporary workplaces. Integrating SAED with technical skills ensures a holistic development that prepares individuals for the challenges of the modern world.

To bridge this gap, considering a comprehensive approach to education is essential. Enrolling in a reputable digital marketing training institute, for instance, not only provides technical expertise but also hones communication, teamwork, and ethical decision-making – seamlessly blending SAED with practical skills for a more robust and adaptable skill set.
