In the video, Minister Ng Chee Meng said that he’d put more effort into learning his mother tongue… But here’s what I’d do if I could relive my school days:
I’ll learn practical stuff like sales, marketing and copywriting, and then apply them ASAP.
If you looked at the US, they have 12-15 year olds making 5 figures a month by doing SEO, for example! You also have high school kids making six figures a year from copywriting.
These are the kind of skills I feel that our young should have, which will give them a superb head start in life.
Nowadays, having a Degree in Chem doesn’t even mean a fresh grad will land a $2.5k job.
How about you? If you could relive your school days, what would you have done differently? Share your thoughts in the comments!
