Skill sets

What sort of skills do you need for success? It can be any skills, it can be the things you’ve learnt at college, if you did a course at college and got qualified, you can use your skills for your business to success.

For an example you’ve done plumbing at college and did an apprenticeship for plumbing, got qualified and become a plumber, you’ve started your own plumbing business, you can set that to your business online to make money. Have a plumbing website for your business to make money.

A plumber makes good money if they have their own business. Plumbing is a skilled job and many other trades are good like carpentry, bricklaying, engineering, art and design and many other courses to learn at college and get the trade.

To make money online you don’t have to have qualifications to start your entrepreneurship journey to success but you should watch some training videos to learn. The skills you learn from college, you can use it for your business.

If you want to build wealth, you got to develop a skill and it can be anything, from the things you’ve done in the past or a hobby that you enjoyed doing and use it as a full-time job. You like drawing, photography, painting and building and you can use those for your skills to make money.

Looking for a way to make money

How to make money online?

You need to sign up for the marketing website for marketing like wealthy affiliate. That site can help you build wealth. If you want to build wealth, you got to develop a skill, find something that your passionate about and make your niche. You build your website and think of something to do to get more ranks, get indexed from Google.

I’m not a professional in making money online because I am currently learning to be an entrepreneur but I have a passion for talking about success, money, rich people and nice cars.

Successful people inspired me to start my online business.

Anyone can be an entrepreneur it’s just having the right mindset to do it if they can do it, you can do it but you just got to learn to become successful. It takes time but you will get there one day.

Trades & skillsĀ 

Construction is a good skill to be working for. It’s hard physical work, you do a lot of physical work and a lot of manual handling. Construction is a high paying job if you got the skills if you’re a general builder, you can do anything. You can set your own construction business. You can work on a lot of different sites.
Plumbing is a good trade to be working for. You can set your own plumbing business. First, you got to go to college and learn the skills first, it’s going to take a while to learn because you will have to do an apprenticeship for the skill to become a qualified plumber. If you’re good you can set up your online plumbing business and build a website for your plumbing business.
Carpentry is a good trade to be working for. You can set your own carpentry business. First, you got to go to college and learn the skills, it will take a while to learn because there’s a lot you got to learn. You got to learn how to use the tools, how to measure the woods, how to cut the woods and know how to make the furniture. You can set your online carpentry business if you’re good and got the skills, you can add that up to your skill sets.
Engineering is a good skilled job to be working for. I work in the engineering environment in the aerospace where they make planes and helicopters, I’m not an engineer and I don’t know much about the industry. You got to go to college and learn the skill and do an apprenticeship for engineering. Can you set your own business for engineering? Most engineers work in the 9-5 job in the aerospace, building their bosses dreams. If you’re a good engineer you can set your online engineering business. There are different types of engineering. I don’t know do you have to go to college for engineering, I think some people just do an apprenticeship for engineering and work their way up to become an engineer. The same as construction, you don’t have to go to college to learn the skill. For construction, you can do labouring and work your way up to become a builder.
Driving is a skill. I have thought about being a driving instructor because I enjoyed driving. Sometimes I talk to myself and pretend to be a driving instructor. A lot of driving instructors are self-employed. I could be a driving instructor and entrepreneur. You can set your driving instructing website.

Your skills and trade can be:

  1. Bricklaying
  2. Plumbing
  3. Carpentry
  4. Scaffolding
  5. Plastering
  6. Roofing
  7. Flooring
  8. Window fitting
  9. High way maintenance
  10. Electric
  11. Engineering

  20. Computers
  21. Performing arts

These are the skills that can help you build your business.

Most people say if you want to learn a skill, you should go back to college and find a course that helps you find a skilled job.

You don’t have to go back to college to learn a skill and get an apprenticeship, it’s a waste of time to spend your whole time learning the course. First of all, you’re not going to be successful in wasting your time at college to do your apprenticeship.

Do you know how long it takes for engineering apprenticeship? It takes about 4 years apprenticeship to become a qualified engineer. If you’re doing an engineering apprenticeship, you sometimes go to the boring classes at college to learn more about engineering. You’re basically wasting your time from learning because you’re going to get a corporate job after you completed your apprenticeship and your going to work there for years. Those skills can give you experience but the problem is that the colleges teach you to get a job. There’s an online business you can do from nothing, no skills or background and start from scratch.

I work in an engineering company so I know how long it takes to become an engineer.

There’s a business apprenticeship is advertising for the people who are studying business at college if they want to learn and earn money at the same time to develop a skill. Do you need to study business at college to be an entrepreneur? You don’t have to study business and get an apprenticeship for business to be an entrepreneur. Studying business can give you the experience for businesses, it’s a good background to have before you start your online business. Online business is different than the business that they’ve taught you from college. I don’t think the colleges teach you how to be an entrepreneur, how to make money online and invest money. They teach you how to get a corporate 9-5 job apprenticeship, works in the office and do the same job every day.

  1. I must commend the good work you have put into getting this awesome set of information for the public I must say a very big thank you as I know this set of essential skills you have listed in this article would be of great help to the public as it has been of help to me.

  2. I absolutely agree with you. Sure, a degree has some value if you really want to work as said profession, but a degree is not necessary to be successful. I went to university for almost 3 years and yes, I expanded my knowledge and my business is somehow related to what I was studying. It’s all a matter of learning new things and taking advantage of that new skill you’ve gotten.

  3. Hi Gordon,

    I agree with you there on how you can make money online with any skill you have acquired offline. For many years I studied sport at college however I was never keen on being a sports coach or something within those lines.

    But now I have that knowledge I can transfer that into an online business so you have written this post perfectly as its something that anyone can do.

    Everyone has passion and is good at something, it’s about utilizing it and being smart.



  4. Thanks this has certainly provided some food for thought.  I have a range of skills having had a very broad employment profile over the years.  But I also have a wide and varied range of interests to which I think  I could apply the same principles you talk about here. So in essence you have caused me to think about the rich vein of material that I could be monetising using a vehicle like the one you suggest.

    Thanks for the inspiration appreciated


  5. Before I forget, I want to commend you for creating an amazing website. I actually hit the reload button because I like the “dramatic” effect. Having a skill is absolutely imperative if you want to command a higher income. The list you provided pays well here in Canada especially construction, plumbing, roofing and electrical.
