Happy Halloween! Learning doesn't have to be scary! In fact, it can be a lot of fun. When you learn something new, you gain knowledge and open doors to new opportunities.

If you're feeling overwhelmed by the idea of learning something new, here are a few tips:
✅ Start small. Don't try to learn everything all at once. Focus on one thing at a time and break it down into smaller steps.
✅ Find a learning style that works for you. Some people learn best by reading, while others learn best by doing.
✅ Make learning fun. Find ways to make learning enjoyable and engaging.
✅ Don't be afraid to ask for help. If you're stuck, don't be afraid to ask for help!

No Country For Young People: The Role Corporate SA Can Play In Empowering Our Youth 15/06/2023

Paul Romer, co-recipient of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Economics, famously said, “If you can’t solve the problem of getting young people into work, it may not matter what other problems you do solve.”

With Youth Day in our midst, It’s easy to feel pessimistic about the 9.1 million South Africans between 15 and 24 years of age who are not in employment, education or training (NEET) — people who are excluded from the economy and struggle to find their way in.

But instead of dwelling on the escalating rate of youth unemployment, you can do something differently this Youth Day. Start by reading up on how businesses can contribute to solving the problem.
