How To Make Money As A Young Person

Spread the love

When struck by misfortune and poverty, many people tend to seek succour in religion or fetish ideologies. To some people who never have the opportunity to become wealthy, money suddenly becomes evil. They usually console themselves with sayings, such as: “money can’t buy happiness”, and “money is not everything”. Quite often, people’s response to financial failure is unnecessary resentment.

Money matters. It always will. We must admit this. So what?

Before you give up and claim this as your destiny, remember even as religious people, we know there are ends and there are means to get to them. So, what happens to money making? Does any kind of religion in the world deny a man from seeking the bounty of the Lord? No! Whether religious or non-religious, good things of the world are there for man to enjoy. Why not probe into why money seems elusive?

It is understandable that getting rich in Nigeria seems to be an uphill task. The system seems rigged against us. We have a government that consumes up to half of that national resources, and corrupt politicians, who care little about the wellbeing of the citizens.

Many Nigerians face the daunting task of making a headway. Setting up a goal on money sure does require some courage. But like any other enterprise, getting rich has its dos and don’ts. As students and young people, we can arm ourselves with tips I have found workable.

First, let us admit we need money. This sounds simple but it’s a great deal. As many prefer to shy away from talking about it, it is never a good idea hiding what you are born with. Every human is destined to crave for convenience. Money buys some comfort. And to deny such is to be ashamed of how we are created. Nothing drives a man to success than a desire to succeed in anything. We must know this; it is a golden rule.

Secondly, we must save money. Remember, as a student, we started accumulating knowledge in ones and twos. The same thing goes for money. Unless some of us have wealthy parents from whom we can inherit property that can fetch us fortunes, there is a need to save the little we have if we want to have a foothold in the financial world. If not, we can be impoverished forever.

Let us kill that monstrous fear now and begin to save, possibly five to 10 per cent of money we have. That is how to get ourselves off the ground, even if we have no one to finance our ideas.

Thirdly, we must suspend desires and buy only what’s necessary. Benjamin Franklin said: “Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship.” Most Nigerians live beyond their means of livelihood, believing, erroneously though, that money comes their way by accident and more will come. Well it does come by accident but goes by choice. Until we learn how to live below our source of income, most young people will always have a lean purse.

Investment is another key value we must imbibe. What obviously can we do with our savings? If we ever want cash to always flow in our direction, we must create for ourselves the kind of opportunity we create for others. That is, unless we have something we sell for others, the money we spend will never come back to us.

Make no mistake, investment does not necessarily have to be on buying and selling of goods. A worthy self-improvement pays even more dividends than material goods. Let us take a cue from writers, graphic designers, carpenters, public speakers, etc.

Let us continue to seek for knowledge. This is a must, if we want to improve our condition. Most start-ups lost their money to lack of knowledge. In an intellectual world, everyone who wishes to thrive must seek knowledge constantly to keep up with the pace of a fast-developing world, lest they would be consumed by leaping blindly or get duped by downright liars or fake advertisers. Knowledge gives us power.

Neither in today’s world nor in the past has long-term success ever favoured mediocrity. If it seems to thrive at first, it’s only a matter of time before it gets swallowed by the presence of the originals. Let’s make sure we always give our best to see the best result.

Lastly, we need to place a premium on human relationship. Nothing can be compared to good relationship among humans. No human loves to deal with robotic or emotionless human. Create a cordial atmosphere where people are free to engage you.

Flee From Copying The Wrong Things, Nentawe Yilwatda Goshwe Declares…..

Kemi Badenoch

Following the appointment of 39-year old Kemi Badenoch mother of two who spent most of her childhood in Lagos. A software and IT engineer, who studied systems engineering at Sussex University and also has a law degree; erudite lecturer at the Federal University of Agriculture Makurdi and Nigeria’s INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) for Benue state Dr. Nentawe Goshwe Yilwatda has this say. In his remark on a Facebook post, he said:

Lesson: 
1. Nigeria and Nigerians must learn from this. You can live, contest and be appointed where you are best known 
2. Inclusivity of minorities to contest and be appointed. I can imagine the voting population of Nigerians in UK to deserve this “quota”. Some minorities can never be voted or appointed to certain position because of their voting population.
3. Diversity is the way forward and a lesson for Nigeria

We like copying the wrong things

Dr. Nentawe Goshwe Yilwatda

Kemi Badenoch has been the MP for Saffron Walden since 2017 and replaces Nadhim Zawahi who has moved to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

Olukemi Olufunto Badenoch was born in Wimbledon to parents of Nigerian origin. Her childhood was spent in Lagos, Nigeria and the US before she moved back to the UK at the age of 16.

She once told MPs in Parliament about her own experiences of poverty and how she used to do her homework by candlelight.

A software engineer, Ms Badenoch studied systems engineering at Sussex University and also has a law degree. As well as IT, she has worked in the banking sector for Coutts and RBS and is a mother of two.

Tweeting about her appointment, Kemi Badenoch @KemiBadenoch posted on 29 July: ‘Thank you for all good wishes and kind messages of support received. I also look forward to working not just with @Conservatives colleagues but cross-party and grateful for the warm welcome from @TracyBrabin and @Steve ReedMP who no doubt will be keeping me on my toes!’

The minister’s responsibilities include early years policy including inspection and regulation. Her portfolio includes delivery of 30 hours free childcare offer, special educational needs including high needs funding, safeguarding in schools and disadvantaged pupils – including pupil premium and pupil premium plus.

In her 2017 maiden speech as MP, the daughter of a GP and a physiology professor, described the vote for Brexit as “the greatest ever vote of confidence in the project of the United Kingdom”.

Last week, Boris Johnson sacked Damian Hinds and appointed Gavin Williamson to replace him as education secretary.

Mr Johnson’s brother Jo Johnson has been appointed into the Department for Education as universities minister and is also a minister of state in BEIS. Anne Milton, the apprenticeships and skills minister in the DfE quit last week, prior to Mr Johnson taking office as PM. Nick Gibb has been reappointed as schools minister in the DfE.
