Dont surrender your business as a risk for an HND. It does not worth it at all. My best advice for you madam is that you should continue with your work, re-invest your profits or expand, and at the same time further your education at NOUN (with low tuition fees). NOUN certificate is now very much respected compared to then and you will also have enough time to norture your business for divine growth. You can even settle down along the line as well.

My question is, where in abroad is your friend base? Is it Italy or Malaysia?
If it is any of the above mentioned places, then continue with what you are doing now.
|Re: Please Advise Me, I Am At Cross Roads On What To Do by Trustworthiness: 6:51am On Oct 02|
I see someone who had already made up her mind travelling abroad.
At age of 24 for a girl, time is not on your side.
At age 24, your chance of getting a good and well paid job is getting slimmer, unless you have good connection or God is on your side. So, going to school for the purpose of securing a good jod afterwards is a bad investment and wrong thought.
Who says if you have a good business that is well expanded, you can't get visa easily to any country in the world or get admission into any school abroad to further your education and develop your business simultaneously?
So, my sister think deeply, before jumping into abroad things. It is always not to good abroad.
My advice to you is this. Expand your business outside the school premises, but still ensure you keep your contacts in the school and other institutions such as banks, other schools around, companies etc. Plan to further your education if you see it impact on your business in the nearest future or change to a course that will impact your business.
Do not abandon your business at any time for anything, be it schooling, abroad or any other thing.
Do not allow the abroad thing freak you. You may end up becoming a prostitute or slaves of others. The abroad thing does not pay for everybody. Some went and becomes successful after several illegal deals and some dead in the process of trying to be successful, while some remain poorer compare to their status while they were in Naija.
A word is enough for a wise

Confused977:Hello lady. I admire your tenacity and purpose-driven life. Most girls in ur condition would have jumped into prostitution.
Now to solution. Never ever leave ur business. It has potential. I am now a strong advocate for even graduates to get a skill or business.
Continue your education when you are ready. Maybe part-time (don't know if that is still obtainable in universities or poly now).
As for the travelling out? It may likely cause you pain. I have a gut feeling about this. What is your friend doing there? Is she telling you the truth? Is Dubai really a place that allows ladies to hustle?
Business then school. I'm not so sure of the traveling out. God bless you

As you can see from the various advises you got, you wil not be able to make up your mind rather get you more confused.
Why not try God. God is your Creator and He has giving you a destiny which you must fulfil. Go to God in prayer and table youur request before Him. You will not regret it.
Many have travel abroad and are for ever thankful to God for it. Likewise some are regretting their decision for travellig.
Many have gone to school and are doing VERY VERY WELL, while some have never used their certificates to work but doing their business and are not regretting going to school or reading to Doctorates level and some are languishing.
It is God that knows what the future holds for you.
I would have suggested you go on part time and continue with your business which is like using two stones to kill a bird. By doing so, you cannot complain of joblessness in the future. When you will eventually settle down to marry, you will have time for yourself,husband and children. There is also nothing like being sacked in the future.
But if that is not God's plan for you, it is extremely dangerous.
It is simple, just ask God what His plans are for your life. Remember:
Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

hello confused977, the thing is, traveling abroad one thing buh getting a job there/being financially stable in a foreign country needs more than just marketing skills.
With what you've said to have achieved here in USA, well I have no doubt you'd survive anywhere else.
1. You'd need to ascertain if your friend is �100% tusted.
2. you need to know more about what she does over there, and see how that works out for you.
3. Overload your skill set.
4. Be sure you understand the pros and cons of the country you're travelling into
As we both know, certificate ain't everything, buh skill can take you place. so if you think your current skill set will keep you alive and kicking in the foreign land then you have my blessings. If not, USA is still manageable.
|Re: Please Advise Me, I Am At Cross Roads On What To Do by MichaelSokoto(m): 7:09am On Oct 02|
my candid advice, don't travel anywhere!
stay in ur con3, finish ur HND, get married b4 dreaming of travel.
I 've worked for IOM & my sister, if u hear some lady's story who were comfortable but lured to go overseas for legit jobs bit ended up been enslaved for prostituition, then u will say wat I am telling u now is jez simple truth.
|Re: Please Advise Me, I Am At Cross Roads On What To Do by MichaelSokoto(m): 7:13am On Oct 02|
ur friend is a prostitute & she's pushing u to come join her, EOD!
|Re: Please Advise Me, I Am At Cross Roads On What To Do by faithfulfaith9(m): 7:18am On Oct 02|
My sister the good thing there is you could further your education and still keep running your education at the same time, you see going abroad can still wait.my point is
1. In your school there you have made a name for your self (a good name at that) and good relationship with people
2. You have also succeeded in creating a good business atmosphere and environment and your market is there already common sis, so what stopping you from proceeding with your studies, nothing is, at least your lectures aren't 24/7 which makes it even more fun
|Re: Please Advise Me, I Am At Cross Roads On What To Do by onyokometer: 7:19am On Oct 02|
I advice you to forget about going abroad now,focus on expanding your business now. Also enroll for HND part time. Many young girls abroad are prostituting. Your friend may be fallen for that and want you to fall too. Remember that all that glitters are not gold. The best advice is always the one you give yourself. Good luck.
|Re: Please Advise Me, I Am At Cross Roads On What To Do by Talkizcheap: 7:20am On Oct 02|
I checked him out, and guess what...he's a chartered accountant. Tell me how he became a group managing director of first bank with just a HND?. The dude probably did some courses either online or physical you know nothing of, and for him to be a chartered account means he did ICAN which gave him a playing field for his career path.
@Kimara, going by your narratives every should by now understand what you mean without making a calculus out of it, but you further leave us wondering about ur capacity to adequately comprehend, analyze and even profer solutions. One would wonder how u thriving with these level of thinking. No beef sis. Am not pain cos am way out of that league but you only leave me with so many thoughts.
|Re: Please Advise Me, I Am At Cross Roads On What To Do by Sulaimon01(m): 7:20am On Oct 02|
Don't know if you're going to read this, but here's my 50cent : Why are you bent on HND when you have the option of a BSc.- through DE, with what you have now - your skill and business, your business would thrive as well in a University environment, in fact, they're going to be willing to buy for higher prices. Plus, your travel can wait, you can always go after your degree, and then if you go and your friend disappoints, you're probably resume your business and there's every chance that you'd fair better over there and then you could even enrol for further studies, but ultimately, put the Almighty first! I hope you make the best decision!

I noticed that u post like a burukutu drinker. And like to argue with nothing to back it up. Just has baseless like a kid.because you keep talking about further the education and hnd is mediocre.are you blind or is it not this same post?his young lady just said with she saved?she won't be able to do business again after paying sćool fees,accommodation and all.someone using all her last saved change to go for hnd,how will she get money to further go for bsc?d lady who called you egoistic is right.u v a problem and u don't know u do
|Re: Please Advise Me, I Am At Cross Roads On What To Do by evansjeff(m): 7:25am On Oct 02|
Babe, after reading your post as well as summarising subsequent comments, I think you have a great future already, its just about not making a significant mistake now. I do not know if my opinion matters anymore since you must have seen many but then I still have to say it for the sake of emphasis.
Use your ND to secure admission into a University (I will prefer uniben if you can). Then continue your business while in school, I tell you, you would even have a larger market for your business. If you still want to travel after school, then you may but I tell you, It's always not a case of no job after school as you always hear, I am a living testimony. But even if it's so, you still have your business which you can hold on to and even expand until something better comes.
Note, I'm from Edo, Benin to be precise, when I hear Abroad, I know why I'm solidly against it. Let me tell you, even if you know yourself, and how you can't stoop so low as to engaging in prostitution over there, trust me, any mistake or discouragement you get in whatever you plan to do while Abroad will lead you straight back into it out of frustration. All the friends from USA you'll make there have nothing else to say to you other than the quickest escape route.
I hope you take the right decision.

|Re: Please Advise Me, I Am At Cross Roads On What To Do by maxti: 7:27am On Oct 02|
I would even advice HND first. It's just two years. Bsc for her might consume more financially as its straight four years.

Please my dear sister, if you don't know the nature of what your friend does abroad forget about her. Most nigerians are suffering and beg to come back plus naija is a nation where u can thrive in business without multiple task breaking your neck like abroad. I candidly advice u face ur business in USA, make it grow big by expansion and addition of more business scope. Grow in business then later consider going back to school while still running ur business.
|Re: Please Advise Me, I Am At Cross Roads On What To Do by IForgotMyLoginD(f): 7:43am On Oct 02|
OK. Firstly, I applaud your entrepreneurial spirit as a young woman. At 24, you have done well for yourself.
I also want to point out these things and hope you consider going back to school.
1. Your first set of customers who made your hustle grow were your fellow students. The school environment is the best place to test your business skills.
Furthering your education wouldn't have affected your business... But probably would have grown it. Students and fashion is like bread and butter.
2. No certificate is ever a waste. No education is ever a waste of time. You never know where the knowledge will be useful. Not in the area of employment but just life generally.
3. Travelling overseas is not the solution. "The grass is greener where you water it. " but if you must relocate, make sure you have the right papers and also learn a skill that will make you most sort after over there. You can even enroll in a vocational school over there.
4. Yes the USA educational sector isn't encouraging, but no education or certificate is ever a waste.
5. Pray. Ask for direction from the One who knows the future.

Confused977:One thing I like about you is that you seem to be very intelligent... You write well and I presume you speak well too... That said...
I believe you will have to make the decision for your self after all has been said...
My own advice would be for you to discover what mattes most to you.... What are your visions? Make your decisions based on your vision for your life....
I was once faced with choosing between two jobs... I ended up choosing the least paying job for the other which also came with an accommodation. Why? Because I have a vision for my life... It helped me decide when the sky was at its darkest..
My friend.... Find your X (purpose)
|Re: Please Advise Me, I Am At Cross Roads On What To Do by AdeniyiA(m): 8:00am On Oct 02|
Mostly those who dont have a thriving business seek to go back to school, there are classes of education and formal education is over hyped in USA. Is it necessarily a vehicle to success and prosperity??
She can write and communicate in English and she also has a thriving business. If i may ask what exactly are you trying to achieve with education? (I mean you reading this).
My only advise is, you should not leave your business, but if you can combine it with your education, fine.
But make sure you also diversify. Nothing lasts forever
