There was no training on how to do, survive or live my life outside paid jobs, so it was an opportunity for me look inwards and see what I can do for myself it was that process that brought me to where I’m today and because of that,

I felt the need to put these philosophy in writing and share it to others out there who may want to discover themselves and live above daily and endless searching for jobs so that was the inspiration that led me to write this book”

Further speaking, the book goes down to identify the major problems that are facing young people in our country today and try to give an awakening and practical  solutions, “the first chapter of the book goes down to identify the mindset that that limit the young generation, which is the mindset that we go to school  to get good grades, so that we can get good job and live our dream life.

  The second chapter talks about redirecting the need for self-discovery, the need to go inwards and discover who you are, chapter three goes to tell us the need to make right decision out of life, the fourth chapter talks about, finding your purpose in life, what you want out of life, defining who you are.

While the fifth chapter also goes inwards to link our emotions and behaviours to success, identify inwards how our behaviours affect our success in life. The sixth chapter talks about the act of selling, gives us the strategies that we can sell those skills that we have identified, we can sell them.

It can be musical skills, it can be your unique way of talking to people. So, chapter six having identified those t6alents and passions and turns it into lucrative income and sources of wealth.
