I've never worked as an analyst before and I'm not sure if i'll excel in it. Will I be able to learn and understand data analytics?

Honestly I believe in skills over talent or luck. Nobody is born with talents, they build it over a period of time. Let me give you an example, when you're playing a game do you just try your luck or calculate all the possibilities and analyze the risk?

If you're a person who analyzes the risk and considers all probabilities, you'll love studying this subject and you'll love your job as an analyst.

Hope this helps!

For more, its recommended to join Python Data Science course today.

Thank you!!
