Joining The Big League

Stepping into the BIG LEAGUE will require you to do the things others are not willing to do. You’ll need to invest in yourself, and grow your brand. You’ll need to build your online portfolio “website”. LinkedIn is a great platform to showcase your work portfolio but that alone wouldn’t do the magic.

Your social media game gotta be strong. A fan page on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and possibly a personal blog “attached to your website” will be needed. Facing the camera or crowd might not be the easiest for many but it’ll be required to join the big league.

Eliminate your fear of being judged by the general public. You will to be judged regardless so ride on and build the muscles to accept criticism for your work. Toughen up and be comfortable with being vilified. When you eventually join the big league, they’ll be forced to see you differently. At the moment, enjoy the ride and stay true to your hustle.Remember to keep the enemies of wisdom 10 miles away.

See you on my Facebook Community, Personal Development Assembly

Create a social media page, brand it to give you the professional look, and start sharing content with the end in mind.
Social media is here to serve all who wish to use it to their advantage. It can make or destroy you. It is the most elevated platform of the century to display skills and talent.
If you remain committed to doing your activism, you’ll gain celebrity status within a reasonable time.
This principle works for all industries. A proud roadside hawker can gain celebrity status if she/ he applies this principle. The bartender is likely to become a celebrity if this principle is applied to his/her job.
Here’s the problem👇
Many who could achieve celebrity status with jobs society consider to be menial don’t play the social media game to their advantage. Rather, they argue about irrelevant things bloggers post on social media to improve their page engagement.

Skill Vs. Degree Economy

The later part of the 20th century saw a huge rise in demand for HIGH-INCOME UNIVERSITY DEGREE. Acquiring any of these high-income degrees keeps you on track with becoming one of those in the higher economic echelon. It’s even easier and quicker if you obtain any of these high-income degrees from a western university.
The dream of many 20th century parents was to see their children graduate high school and proceed to College/ University to study either Medicine, Accounting, Law, or Engineering. These were considered high-income university degrees because a graduate of these programs stands a higher chance of working with an oil servicing company, Big corporations, hospitals, Big accounting firms/ banks, construction companies, and law firms.
However,
In the wake of the 21st century, the world embraced the internet like never before. New opportunities emerged for people to transact businesses faster and easier. Communication became easier and likewise transportation. The competition became global and outsourcing a job to other countries became a norm.
Many lost their jobs as technology became disruptive. A typist without computer knowledge quickly gets replaced in the marketplace. An accountant who’s refused to take some computing/ digital classes got replaced swiftly by the firm.
This gave birth to “The Skill Economy”. This economy values SKILLS above University Degree. Those who are yet to catch up with this reality always wonder why they graduate university and getting a good job becomes tougher than acquiring a university degree.
The reason is simple. Get multiple job skills. Especially High Income on Demand Skills.
Here’s some of them if you’re interested in learning any;
Coding, Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Certification, Copywriting, Sales, Forex Trading, eCommerce, Digital Marketing, Web/App Design, SEO, Content Marketing, User Experience (UX), blockchain, video editing, etc.
These are high-Income Skills anyone can develop with little to no assistance.
