How to Become Better Than Your Classmates While In School.
Looking at the current trend and you want to be smart about begetting of your classmates and schoolmate in general, kindly note the following things below

Even Mark Zuckerberg that dropped out of school when back to complete his degree program, but then, that should not be your case. You need to graduate with your mates because your story can’t be like that of Mark.
2. You must make acquire some service skills.
One thing I loved being a student is that there is time and I had plenty of it. Trust me, students are free. Lectures go from 8:00am to 2:00 pm on a normal day except in few days where it extends to 4 or, but then, there is time.
Use that time well and acquire a skill that can make you money.
During my time, I got involved into graphics design where I made lots of money designing and doing printing business from home.
In my story, that graphics I started is what brought me this far and I’m still kicking up.
3. You must read leadership and good books
Since everything is not all about school, you must read external books to help your life. There are hard copies, there are soft copies, there are audios and videos to watch, which everyone that you find easier, you must go through them to learn from people who have passed the current state you are now. All the top rich men in the world today have attributed their success to reading good books and that’s one thing you mustn’t miss.
4. You must either start some small business or start using your skills to make some money.
Learn to start being independent on time.one good way to start doing so is by starting a small business while in school.

Don’t just acquire the skill and wait until you graduate from school, start immediately, no matter how small.
