I need more money
posted by Michael Olafusi , on ,
Simple! Get extra income. Well, it sounds simple but trying to do this has made 2012 my toughest year so far. I have read several books, online articles and conference materials. Well, I can boldly say I have only succeeded in increasing my monthly expense and not my monthly income. Sincerely, I have done so many near impossible things in my life, you see, like my final year project, it was a killer, my supervisor never believed it could be done. I have also managed to learn several languages and in a very short time too: French, HTML, VB.Net, java, C#, C, C++, FORTRAN, Basic, PHP and BASH scripting. Even my English is spot-on. And in the University, by my second year I had figured out a way to trump any course. When I wasn't looking to make money, I won a scholarship and sold some of my poems, and even wrote someone a FORTRAN program for cash.
So, you can imagine the huge confidence I had (well, still have some left) in myself. I checked the list of world billionaires and their biography, it had all sorts of people: morons, geeks and all sorts. Hey, I definitely belong in there, getting there can't be as tough as MEE202 or EEE341, let alone my final year project. All I need do is... ehmm, charge people for services I enjoy rendering and grow my extra cash flow through investment. Yeah, that's the strategy, a simple yet powerful one. And the books confirmed it, it's the perfect wealth growth scheme. And believe me, I have given more than my all in implementing this strategy. I have tried all sorts from helping people convert their books to audiobooks to teaching old people computer use. Though, I am yet to increase my cash flow I am not going to give up. In fact, I have figured out my main obstacle, Time. Thanks to Deaver Brown who taught me to pour more than the required work-hours into my day job, I have been faithfully doing that even to the cost of several Saturdays. So, if I can't get a dream job, I mean a job I can do while sleeping, I need to figure out how to max out the little weekend time I have. And this, my friend, has been my fishbone in the throat.
However, to show any improvement I have made, I will be making a series of blog posts on my situation's status. So, till the next post, ciao!
