MBA stands for Masters of Business Administration and it is a sure guarantee for its holder that they will land a job rapidly and their career growth in the corporate world will be accelerated.

Getting your dream tech job is as simple as reading all the way to the end of this short article.

If I were to join a new tech company today, I'd most likely begin with the Sales & Marketing team and work in any of these roles : 1. Copywriting 2.Marketing management 3. Product Promotion 4. Creative/Brand 5. Demand and Operations 6. Digital Marketing πŸ”₯ This is not only because I have seen the fat pay cheques that these roles can bring you if you know your onions, and it definitely is the life wire of ANY company in the world. This is the department that brings in the mints and coins into the vault. Some other reasons that might make my entry easier and necessary would be because I have garnered on-the-job experience as a : Copywriter Product Manager Marketing Manager Sales guy Operations Guy Customer service CEO (Chief Everything Officer) πŸ˜… Etc... Name it!!! For my start-up, small start-ups, and some close friends' start-ups that I've assisted with sales or content ideas. And I've seen traction. It will be easier for me to say, "This i

How my brain became a product that makes money

Image
  The moment I realized I was both super smart, multi talented, ambitious and at the risk of the career confusion that special people like me face,  I ported from trying to get a corporate job to Learning digital skills to compliment my talent. - I turned my brain into the product. - I learn hard digital skills and simplify them in a way that "too busy" people or slow learners can understand at a glance - I test out these skills by "securing a job with it" or "making at least a $1000" through it to validate it. - Then I build a simple course around it to help these busy people get skills, as well as teach them how to get a job or make money with these skills. This is why DEXA exists.  Since I started towing this part, I've not had reasons to search for a job.  And I've probably had more job offers than most people searching for jobs. I'm more focused on building a global Unicorn out of my brain. Your brain is a gold mine. If you're like me

Why being a Jack of all Trades is important

Image
 "Jack of all Trades, Master of none" Was an incomplete statement invented by a lazy man to cause friction in your mind and limit you in the things you can achieve as a human operating your highest potential. This singular statement has made a lot of people niche themselves down to poverty and mental inability, or something we call "Learned helplessness in Psychology". You need to stretch yourself the heck out. Explore your capabilities, run different businesses, learn different skills. Speak different languages. Work in different sectors and industries. Just stretch your mind. That is the only way you get better and discover your true self. This so-called jack of all trades was actually our decades old hero, William Shakespeare. The complete phrase is “a jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.” This was a compliment, not an advise to limit yourself or an insult to curb your impulsive obsession to become badass a

The first marketing client I ever landed paid me $15,000+ per month even though I knew nothing about marketing

The first client I ever landed paid me $15,000+/mo. I knew nothing about marketing. And yet… I spent only 3 hours a week working his business. Here’s the juicy story with ALL the details. And how you can copy me and do the same. This is not clickbait. And I’m not exaggerating. Not when I say how much he paid me… And not when I say that you can do the same. You literally can copy-paste what I did and get very similar results. Right now. So… Let’s get started: First you need to know who the client is and how much money they made before me: They were a cyber security school. Selling frontal 6-month courses. They sold them for about $8k at the time. And when I met them? They were making $30K/mo. Now… a quick disclaimer: The numbers I’m gonna share with you are not precise. But they’re very close. To the best of my memory. Okay. Ready? πŸ‘‡ Their funnel looked like this: FB ad -> phone lead -> qualification call -> meeting -> close. Now… Their Facebook ad said this: “Come learn th

I could have so much money, but I didn't make upto $100 from my first blog. Here's why - Mr Awesome

My first hustle was blogging.   If you were at Imo State University when I was a student, you would have probably heard about my blog. I received an email yesterday informing me that my domain name registration, which I had kept since around 2017, had just expired, and I smiled.   I renew it every year and the last time I did was last year. I'm considering letting it go this year, as it hasn't been functional.   My last publication on that blog was in 2020. mrawesomesblog.com   I loved blogging so much, but when I entered the space, the market and my niche, saturation was just one of the problems I faced.   I wanted to do relationship and trend blogging.   I didn't succeed in blogging when I began because I had a passion to write but "limited knowledge" of the technology that made bloggers successful.   I just knew how to blog and how to do some tech-savvy things. not how to market it to a wider audience.    I didn't know where to go to find mentorship on tha

Brand storytelling made easy in just 7 steps with illustrations. Up your game now!

Without any doubts, everyone who knows business understands that the most relevant skill in marketing is Storytelling. Global phenomenal business brands like Apple and Nike are experts when it comes to storytelling. However, majority of other businesses are missing out on this secret recipe that sets your marketing on a whole new level. Majority of the available brand stories often take the same kind of structure: They talk about a *character* who seeks after something and then come across a *problem* along the line. Out of the blues, help comes.  A *guide* walks in to their problem space and gives them a *plan* and afterwards *calls them to action*. Taking the recommended action then enables them to not encounter *failure*, and then it finally results in *success*. Happy ever after. To make this more understandable and simplified, We can actually break the art of storytelling into fragments of 7 essential items: 1. A main character 2. Their existing problem 3. The good guide 4. The ul

How to make massive sales from your social media ads in 3 easy steps | Mr Awesome

Your social media marketing and advert is not making sales because you're trying to sell. This is what you should do instead, in this exact order. In this article, I'm going to show you things to do in order to run an effective marketing and advert on the digital space. Most times, most small business owners get frustrated when they spend so much money on adverts and end up not getting a good result from their marketing campaign. A lot of them feel down. Some give up on that product, others just keep trying without switching to a strategy that works. I don't know which category you fall into, but if you share in any of those feelings, then I sure do know there's something you're not doing right. It's definitely not your sales copy or graphic designs, which are often the first things that cross your mind when you think of digital marketing or social media advertising. The problem here is that you're trying too hard and too obviously to sell. Your ad copy scre

Elon Musk offers to buy Twitter for $41 bn at $54.20 per share Just days ago, Musk had rejected an offer to join the social media company's board – a move that would have impeded a possible takeover bid. New Delhi: SpaceX chief and billionaire investor Elon Musk has offered to buy Twitter for nearly $41 billion. Just days ago, Musk had rejected an offer to join the social media company’s board – a move that would have impeded a possible takeover bid. Musk’s offer price of $54.20 per share was disclosed in a regulatory filing on Thursday, news agency Reuters reported. “The price represents a 38 per cent premium to Twitter’s 1 April close, the last trading day before the Tesla CEO’s more than 9 per cent stake in the company was made public,” the report said. “Since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company,” Musk said in a letter to Twitter Chairman Br
