  1. Thinking about going in this field but I’ve been working in warehouses since I was 18 as a simple package handler. Warehouse work is killing me mentally and physically. But I feel so under qualified for every job.

  2. What if someone has a business background and obtains the skills of a data analyst? That’s what I’m doing right now, I have degrees in business and I’m currently learning data analyst’s tools and knowledge.

  3. I realized that the secret to making a million is making better investment. I always tell myself you don't need that new Car or that vacation just yet and that mindset helps me make more money invest:ng. For example last year I invested 70k in blue chip stocks and cryptos (with the help of my advisor of course) and made about 380k, but guess what? I put it back and traded with his again and now I'm rounding up close to a million. Delayed gratification always pays off

  4. Hi Alex, i have a Bachelors in ICT and a Masters in IT Management. i have
    project Management experience, worked as a technical sales man and also IT Technical support. I want to be an Analyst and need advise if my background will be better suited to a Business Analyst or Data Analyst. Thank You.

  5. I have tech skills like R, python, SQL, power BI, MSvDynamics 365 but I will like to work as a Business analyst first before switching to a Data Analyst along the line. Really need to understand business processes and be able to translate customers needs to a data analytics problem. Have a BSc in business information systems.

  6. Unfortunately job titles dont match job descriptions because of who writes the job description and also who is managing the employees. Business analyst and system analyst can be the same when management does not define the appropriate role and functions of those doing the job.
