The Hidden Wealth of TESDA

TESDA logo
So often, mothers would write me to ask, "How can I find work I can do from home?"

Well, it depends on what skills you have. Can you cook? Can you fix stuff? Can you design Web sites? Can you sell?

Here's the straight, unsugared truth: if you have no skills, stop dreaming that you can work from home -- or from anywhere else. You need to have a skill you can sell.

Now if you don't have skills, learn one.

Today, as I was doing research for one of my clients, I came upon the TESDA site. And there I found a treasure trove of short-term courses one could take in order to have a very marketable skill!

I wanted to list them all, but they were so many, I eventually gave up. Anyway, here's my partial list of the courses you can take from TESDA:
