It’s all shade of glory and steady cashing out for those who have actually ignored the shame then to learn one or two hand-works because the World is beginning to appreciate hand-works better than white collar jobs.
I remember then when I was in Secondary school, I told some of my friends I want to learn Tailoring, my friends were like ‘Ah ah Azeez’ why na?
They saw me as someone without future ambition because they think only those who are not brilliant in school opt for hand-works.
Now, we are all done with Schools and our eyes are wide open to the reality of life. They now realized most of these White-collar jobs pay lesser and their income cannot even sort their bills.
Believe me, our friends who learned some of these odd jobs (hand-work) back then are turning out to become better persons, happier than us and are way ahead of us financially.
I hope this article motivates you all.
IMPORTANT ADVISE TO GRADUATES

IMPORTANT ADVISE TO UNDERGRADUATES
You are very luck! Learn something today before you graduate from school.
You friends will talk, insult you, look down on you, will even bring you down with their words but ‘he who laughs last laughs best‘.
Hand-works are really lucrative these days especially when you are extremely good and you have the needed packaging to set yourself & standard apart from that of the local guys.
Guys, we have done our research carefully and here are the 5 Hand-works you can learn today, Package yourself and start cashing out tomorrow.
Let’s get into the real deal.
It’s kind of funny back then when people say they want to become a photographer, it sounds awkward right? believe me, photography of today is far different from that of yesterday.
People spend a whole lot of money to get a professional photographer to cover their Events (Wedding, Birthday, Burial etc).
People even pay a whole lot of money these days to book a section with Professional photographers to get their photo-shoot done. I believe you understand what I’m talking about now?
If what I wrote above does not motivate you about Photography, I will tell you a short story that would.
Do you know – Bayo Omoboriowo?
Bayo Omoboriowo is the official photographer of President Muhammed Buhari.
If President Buhari is to go on a 4 man delegate to anywhere around the world, his photographer is the second person that must be on that list.
There was a time President Buhari visited Germany on a 4 man delegate, himself and Bayo Omoboriowo the photographer are the two people that were first set aside. President Buhari had to select two other people to go with him on that tour.
These days, people pay a lot of money to book sections to get for their photo-shoot, Wedding photo-shoot, Birthday photo-shoot and so on done.
If you have the passion to go into photography but you’re thinking people will laugh at you, my brother the story is not like that anymore, take the bull by its horn and follow your passion.
Photography pays heavily these days.
2. TAILORING/FASHION DESIGNING
As it is popularly called back then ‘Tailor’. If you tell anyone back then in school that you would like to become a Tailor, the way they will laugh at you ehn, you might lose interest in the whole thing half way.
These days, people have modernized the way Tailors are been called. They are now called “Fashion Designer”.
Fashion Designing is one of the Most Lucrative handwork these days. People spend a whole lot of money to get their Native wears properly sewed.
In fact, Professional Fashion Designers now make Suit and Wedding Gowns and they are steady raking in millions of naira doing that.
If you can remember the story of Ugo Monye, you will understand what am talking about. Ugo Monye is the guy who sewed Ebuka’s controversial Agbada (The one he wore to Banky W’s Wedding).
This guy is a good example of those who are seriously making millions of naira from tailoring.
Popular comedian AY’s younger brother, Yomi Casual is a very good reference point to buttress my point. You can’t tell the difference between Yomi Casual and a Yahoo boy because he’s got swag, very rich + he drives good cars.
Who said you can’t be a tailor and still got swag?
Fashion Designing is the new way to go.
I know a whole lot of Fashion Designers who just post their stuff online on Instagram, Facebook just to get people’s attention and then convert them into their customer.
The truth is, if you are good enough as a Tailor, money will definitely follow you in this field.
Get an Instagram account, sew good clothes for customers, friends, brothers get paid and post it online and then wait and see how people will start rushing you.
If you want a job that still permits you to keep your swag intact and let people see you as a fresh boy while making in money, Fashion Designing is a job you should give a shot, you won’t regret it.
