Good day Twentiz. This is a new category in Twentiesco which will put on discussion from question from our fellow Twenti. Welcome. The person asking the question will remain anonymous or be exposed according to their preference.

Here is our first question from Twenti 1

Hello Twentiz, I am a 21-year-old freshman. It seems to me that everyone in university is doing business. I would like some money on the side but I think it might rob me of time to focus on my career building. What are your views on this.

    yes it is true people in the university are on business which are of different ways…. But my views on this for the one who is scared that it will take much of his/her time in building their goals then try and look out for international network marketing….it doesn’t take much time as it’s only online issues though alot of people don’t believe on such business but surely it helps in making money..

    What i think is, everyone has one owns path to success. You dont have to be everybody. There are so many people that have misinterprated the talks and books of enterprenuers. Thinking that You must be an enterprenuer to be Rich. I think its not this way.
    You can attract abundance and wealth where your energy flows, be it anything including building your carrier. Your area of focus together with positive determination highly influence ones level of self development.
    Life is about creating oneself, and you are the creator deciding what to put in and what to shake off. You can make money while building your carrier when everybody else is busy doing some bussiness. Engage deeply with your carrier, meet people in your aspiring carrier and build a positive network that will always drive you to be who you want to be. Again, Life is about creating oneself. Goodluck.

    i think you can both work and study at the same time. you can engage in a simple activity that wont take much of your time(dont expect earning tht much..unless u are in a big city..like dar es salaam )..you can use your skills. you can sell breads every morning..you can sell vouchers ..ect.If you can draw..do some paintings…if you can babysit..do it…if you can coach a gym …do it. But it is always hard to get a suitable part time job..but dont stop trying…you can start with simple

    Time is limited even if one concentrates on his career,there is never enough time. But if business is what you really want to do “create time” set your priorities and be organised. One thing you should avoid doing, is doing the same business as somebody else! Creativity can help you much, not only in doing something different but as well in doing the same thing others are doing eg. Network marketing DIFFERENTLY. Look around your society, what services or goods are demanded but not available and what are available but not reaching consumers well enough!!! I agree investing in your career may be good but multitasking once in a while its always a better idea! When you plant seeds you never know which may grow, so dont get tired, do all you can!

    On my side i think you can do both if you are willing and thats builiding your carrier and doing business. All it takes is how willing you are to meet your goal. But mind you its not a must for every university student to do business. There are other plenty things you can do that can make you earn some money. All the best fellows, life is all about choices.

    People engage in business at University to either just earn some cash on the side or to grow a talent or service they are offering. You have said that you are looking to grow your career, how about joining similar interest groups and attending your career related events. They may not make you cash on the side but they will equip you with skills and knowledge you will need. Best of luck Twenti

    KNOWLEDGE IS POWER TO DECISION MAKING..
    Get equipped with knowledge of what you think you can do to earn money.. Then decide and start
    ..it is not simply earning money, but creating your future
    .set a goal and have clear reasons to why you need money and to what extent do you need it and further which type of money you want!! Fast money?? Or sustainable money…

    Get calm and analyse.. There are a lot of stuffs that one can do apart from business or in addition to business to earn cash.. Eg.serious writing..

    However, building your carrier has to be among your first priorities. Because without that you are NOT a university students and you are even out of the system for opportunities that you now have..

    So an equilibrium is very important in all aspects of your life.. Spiritual, academic, economic, social and political..

    Enjoy your moments

    Yo can be working and studying at the same time and still do good in both.. you just have to know how to budget your time and know when is time for studies and when it’s time for business.

HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES FOR ALL UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

Published

on

Holiday time ,

A time we have been looking forward to since school started! Blink and share this post if you can relate!

Fun holiday activities

I am a big pro-balance , i believe in late nights, early mornings and coffee but i also believe it is essential to lay back in the Bahamas and have someone bring you a Cool Mojito . So what do you do when you have a month or two of rest. Read On.
1.Rest
A bit Clichè right? But how many of us actually rest at least half of the time during the holiday?

While it is sometimes inevitable to reply that email, Attend that client, making time to take care of you, catch up on your favourite tv show or just sitting and breathing helps clear your brain and make you even more productive.

2. Learn a skill.

What a time to be Alive! Your next skill is literaly a few taps away. This skill can be a hobby you have been looking to get better at like sewing, singing, piano , cooking or something intergral in your career like history taking for new clinical rotation students or something you have wanted to do on the side( you have been talking about how you do not have time, and now Its here! ).

One of the founders of Afyatoon , an animation start-up that provides health education actually learnt how to animate during his summer holiday.

There are some things that are not taught in school and you are probably struggling with such as speaking in public , budgeting , dressing well, healthy living & more. Take time to train yourself on that.

3. Work on your side hustle
Balancing between studies and work is a challenge. Sometimes they are all demanding our time and energy. The holiday time therefore is a great time to focus on this thing , give it a mega push and this push will even save you the hustle when school starts.

 

4. Learn, explore and grow.
It is really eye-opening to learn a new thing or get to understand a certain topic . This can be a great time to do that. There is vast majority of knowledge and information on blogs, social media and in the actual world for you to learn .

Be curious, google , check out some you tube videos . But most of Enjoy your holiday .

 

What are you doing this holiday?

 

Twentiesco consultation doors are open! Book your consulation today and lets walk  this adulthood  journey together.

LOSING MY REPUTATION TO AN ADDICTION;LESSONS IN MY TWENTIES

Published

on

 

You know the saying it takes twenty years to build a reputation and five minutes to destroy it, the sad truth about this is it is TRUE.
What if I told you am a doctor well-loved by my patients, have saved lives several times. The first image you will have of me is a well-rounded and respectable man. Well that was me a few years ago. I was the man. I did everything right, straight As, focused, well-mannered. Everyone who knew me wanted to carry me around like a trophy. Currently, I am a recovering alcoholic, I have practically no friends, colleagues barely answer my calls, but it wasn’t always like that, a decade ago.

alcohol addiction in my twenties
One of the most important lessons you will learn in your twenties is we all have our demons. Some it’s an ex who wronged us, others its sex, mine well was alcohol and an ex of course. For most of us, our proper relationships begin at our late teenage years and twenties.

broken relationship depression

I met a lady a few years back and unlike the fairy tales,It did not last. Alcohol was my demon and I turned to it as a coping mechanism. I drank so much when my relationship crumbled, I lost a lot of friends and let family members down.
In one year my reputation changed from a hardworking guy to an alcoholic failure. The thing is bad reputations stick more than good ones, I haven’t touched a drink in more than two years, but I still get labeled as such.

Am turned 30 this year, I feel like my twenties have flown by so fast and, yet I have changed and grown a lot. I have had my share of bad days, weeks and months and am I yet to have more. I am aware that I need to develop my coping skills and speak or deal with what bothers me instead of finding unhealthy and destructive coping mechanisms.

So, here’s my take from it all.
Mistakes are a significant part of our twenties and a better off made NOW. There are less people that might be affected by you deciding to use all your money betting on Croatia for a good number of us.

In your twenties learn to reach out to a falling friend. So many times, we see friends failing and we never say a word. Speaking to our circle of support in times of highs and obviously takes a big load of our minds and theirs too.

friendship in alcohol addiction
Success might take twenty years to achieve, don’t feel outdone. Social media is like a highlight reel of or lives. We are not seeing a great deal of the backstage to which we compare ours with.

Another thing is your reputation will NEVER recover, but its alright. People will give you a second chance, they will support you, but will remind you of your faults,  Accept your faults learn what happened has happened.

So, what should you do? Simple, wear your flaws and do not be ashamed of your struggles. Do not try to convince people your flaws aren’t a part of you. Life gets easier when you are open, it might seem tough, but you will cope.
