My name is Mohamed Zakariah Mustapha, Mohamed Zakariah is my first name and Mustapha is my family name. Because my name is so long, people just call me Zak or Zakariah and sometimes (but rarley) Mohamed.
Thing about me
So here is the thing about me, I used to hate reading and writing! Who would ever think I would make myself a personal blog? The thought of reading and writing was just a nightmare! And it all started right after I graduated from university with a bachelors degree in Civil Engineering when I thought to myself now what to do with my life? Do I get a job? Do I go for masters? Maybe do both?
I felt like I didn’t know anything, its like I learnt nothing from undergrad school. From that point on, I started to read books and articles that weren’t compulsary school reading. I just had to read otherwise I don’t know what I would do if I ever got a job as a civil engineer or if I was going to further my studies.
I started buying books almost every 2 weeks, filling my browser with 50 articles tabs, and downloading a huge library of ebooks. I had so many things that I wanted to read, my room is full of books and I wanted all that information to stick in my head in no time. So I bought a course on ‘how to read 300 books this year’ on udemy.com which was a pretty good course, as the saying goes “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” and thats exactly what I did.
To be frankly honest I hate working for people, the idea of working for someone is just horrifying, I want to be an entrepreneur but I don’t have the money to invest in my ideas, and I don’t like investors because its like having a boss so that doesn’t solve anything. So as I’m trying to find my way to entrepreneurship, I’m spending my time reading and taking every single course I can find.
Reading is an essential thing, people should read everyday. When you read you get to learn a lot of things and here’s the thing about me…I’m the type of guy who likes to know everything. I wanna know about engineering, medicine, business, tech, programming, I want to know a bit of everything.I usually learn on educational sites such as udemy and coursera, I have even taken a livestock management course, so if you need me to manage your farm I could give you a hand with that.
Some reasons for making this blog
Now the reason I made this blog is to share what I learn on the way…also my recommended readings, links, sites, blog posts and anything I find interesting worth the share. I also hope to meet new people and share ideas with entrepreneur like minded indivuals, whether its a medical guy, engineer, programmer, doesnt really matter, an entrepreneur can be anyone. So if your the know a ‘bit of everything’ kinda guy like me, and want to stay up to date with the my latest learning, then go ahead and sign up with your best email so I can keep you informed.
