The world is changing very fast. The biggest companies in the world aren't ones manufacturing a physical product. They are primarily software companies. Technology companies. Very soon the main difference between third world countries and the developed ones will be access to technology. And the few of us who have prepared ourselves for that future will be like the first generation of university graduates Nigeria produced in the 1950s: opportunities will abound.


The most valuable skill now is knowledge. Not just knowledge you acquired in your secondary school and university, but a knowledge that is in pace with global trends. A knowledge that is constantly being updated and expanded. 

And in my today's post I will be sharing with you the high quality and career improving courses you can enroll for online freely and offered by the top universities in the world like MIT, Stanford, Harvard, John Hopkins, and Yale University.

Finally, don't feel overwhelmed by the volume of what is out there to learn or be tempted to think that they are not valuable in the real world (or Nigerian world). It's true that the people living as kings now are not the brainiacs or most hardworking or even knowledgeable, it will not always be like this. It used to be like that too in the developed countries, when traders and politicians were the richest and most powerful. 

It is certain that things will change and value will matter. It would be terrible if you are not filthy rich now and then do not position yourself for the future wealth transfer. Don't stack all the odds against yourself, arm yourself with relevant knowledge skills. Prepare for the inevitable future, and you might end up being the new king in the coming season.
