Why Relying On A Single Source Of Income Is Bad
Do you still remember how you felt when you got your current job? I mean
the feeling of fulfillment that you are now financially independent.
I know you probably called your friends and relatives, telling them about your new job.
You certainly had a mental image of how your life will be so easy… Like buying a car in 5 months, getting married after a year… blah blah blah.
Smile (Shaking my head)! Things like that mostly work in Nollywood and Zee World...
What happened after the next three months? Reality dawn on you right? It became clear to you that your salary is just a chicken feed... Lol!
You are always broke before the month ends. You try to be as conservative as possible, yet you don't have savings after working for 5 months… The month you are able to save a little, unforeseen expenses will consume the savings… Boom! You are back to square one.
By now, you are thinking is Iya Silifa ( Your old stepmom) that is bewitching you. Funny!
Do you want to know the truth? You aren't living an expensive lifestyle neither are your village people disturbing you.
But your salary will never make you rich. It will only cater to your basic daily needs.
Don't be fooled by motivational speakers who told you things they can't practice.
Every salary earner lives a little above poverty life. But you can still be rich as a salary earner… Do know how? Relax, I will tell you, that is why I am here…
The only way you can become very comfortable as a salary earner is by having a side hustle….
What Is A Side Hustle?
A side hustle is any legal business you do outside your salary to give you passive income...
With the advancement in technology, salary earners can engage in side hustle without conflicting with their main job. You can decide to go into freelancing, dropshipping, internet marketing, Blogging, Affiliate marketing, Vlogging, to mention but a few.
If you have a side hustle, you will still be living comfortably, even if your employer decides not to pay your salary for months.
I sometimes ask myself - how do some states civil servants survive without being paid for several months If you put yourself in their shoes, you will know how dangerous it is to rely on your salary alone…
Let me ask you this last question ….
If Your Employer Sacks You Today, Where Will You Start From?
A side hustle is your plan B, start one now and insure your future forever…
Those Who Have Ears, Let Them Hear...
