The key lesson here is to provide solutions to specific problems. For example, can you develop an app that could solve particular problems like wedding management? or can you sell a specific product in a nonexistent demand market? Can you protect a company from potential threats?

If you think you need to polish your skillset, do it as soon as possible. If you’re capable, the next step will be to develop a business model around your skill. You can create a popular app that makes revenue by monetizing it properly. Business and…
