Its a new year and as usual, every one wants the new year to be better than the previous one which has brought about the culture of new year resolution where people set dos and don’ts at the beginning of each year to guide them into achieving a set goal by the end of the year. In this post, we shall highlight top 5 things that any student who wants this year to be life changing in their lives must do. Let’s jump straight to them.

1. EXPLORE BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES.
Top on this list is entrepreneurial because that is where the Nigerian youth in this 21st century (students as well) need to focus on. If you don’t have an extra means of income and you only rely on monthly allowance from your parent or guardian, then this advice is for you. Develop a Business oriented mind today and be on your way to financial freedom.
Begin to shift your thought from seeking for existing jobs after school which are currently not sufficient in the country and hence hard to come by to creating job for yourself and possibly others and you be your own boss.
If you have not yet conceived the idea of starting your own business either now or after school, start today! Begin now by brainstorming and exploring new business ideas you could start today as a student. However, note that not all business ideas that comes to mind could be viable, therefore, make proper analysis of your idea and ensure that opportunity exist for it to thrive. Don’t just rush into starting a business, research thoroughly and make a startup plan.

2. LEARN A SKILL
