Skills To Acquire

What does it mean to have vocational skills? A vocational skill is one that does not require any “formal education.” Vocational skills are learnt by studying under an experienced master, and in certain situations, you don’t even need writing materials to learn them because they require all of your attention, determination, and brain power.
