Find a job or start your own business. I recommend the business, but it has its own pros and con’s involved in it. You should learn about business for more enlightenment before thinking to start one. At least through the knowledge you will have acquire, you will be able to excel in the field.

If you don’t have the money yet for a business startup, you should find a high-paying job that will cover your expenses, so as to be able to save and later on start a business if interested.

Note that not every job is profitable, they are high and low-paying jobs, and businesses out there, when finding a job or thinking to start a business, you have to go for high ones. 

Some job monthly salary is better than some business monthly income.

You can go to university to study a high course and get the certificate to apply for a great job.

If you start to keep that little money before you will realise it. You will have gathered enough money to start up something. 

Saving $1 or lesser can turn into $100,000. It’s just that it’ll take time, but it’s better than dreaming of a miracle.

You should not just be expecting huge money to transform your life as most people do. 

I wish million just drop down from heaven or see it in the road I won’t be poor anymore but super rich with a beautiful house, fancy car, and nice girls at my side.

The true fact is nobody will give you huge money for free, everybody also needs more money. 

If you ask Elon musk and others rich man and woman they will also tell you they need money.

If you are dreaming about this, I am sorry that you might wait forever, only if you’re planning to borrow money which has its own troubles.

You need to cultivate the habit of keeping money for present and future plans.

5. Search for an opportunity

Opportunities are everywhere. There are some government programs designed to empower people’s life.

You should check in your area to see if you can get financial help for yourself. 

Also, you can ask for help from a friend and family. They can be of help to raise you out of that situation. 

It can be a job to help you financially, to be able to further whatever you want to achieve in life.

  1. Thinking of an idea that will solve people’s problems and change their life. 
  2. By selling

By solving others’ problems you will surely be paid for it, just look at the example of mechanics, they repair people’s damaged cars and get paid for it.

The damaged car is that person’s problem ?. 

Solve people’s problems, then see them running to you for help bring in more money.

Another way to get money from people is by selling something, it can be anything.

When I say selling, I mean offering others the service of what you have, in exchange for money.

  • If you can cook, swim, play football e.t.c then do it for others to pay in. Get a place and cook, let others eat your food, and purchase over and over again.
