Okay then....

This life we live in is a pretty complex one. One day you're living your normal life, working your 9-5 job, expecting your salary at the end of the month, it'sall good. You switch on the TV and you hear there's a new virus spreading in Asia "Covid-19", you think to yourself, that's there problem. I live in Africa, it can't enter Nigeria. Then you hear again that it's in Europe, Italy economy has been hit hard. Again you think to yourself, it's a white man's virus. Africa is safe... Then BOOM!!!!!

You wake up in the morning to prepare for work and you get a call from your colleague saying "Bros e Don happen oooo!!!!"

Your place of work shuts down, airports shuts down, no interstate traveling, movement is restricted, Govt enforces total lockdown. You're speechless, how could this happen, where will I get money to feed myself, how will I manage, but there's hope. The lockdown is only for 2 weeks. you'll get through it. 2 weeks become 4 weeks, 1 month becomes 2 months. You're home starving, you're broke, you beg your friends for money but we all know how that turns out.

Then a sentence echoes through your mind.. the ever popular "HAD I KNOWN" View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

Had I known I would have invested

Had I known I would have saved more

Had I known I would have started another business

Had I known I won't have been so wreckless with money

Had I known I would have created passive income

Many of us once had the opportunity to create passive income or invest but we overlooked those opportunities because we were happy in our comfort Zone. We were happy to continue relying on our salary because we are always guaranteed to get paid at the end of the month. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

If you take a look around now, you'll notice that the people who were less affectedby the whole pandemic are those with high income skills. Not high income jobs, not high income profession but high income skills. Yes you weren't ready, you were caught unaware but it's never too late to learn a skill now. Create several income skills, there's a saying that "if your salary is your only source of income, then you're one step away from poverty" View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

Don't take this the wrong way, there are lots of people living very comfortably by depending on their salary but what happens when they lose that job? They start hustlingto get another job, even if they did get another job it might be one with a reduced salary, they start worrying about their finances and they can't live the life they used to because there's no more income, but when you have several income streams and a high income skill, you tend to worry less about money or someone waking up one day and telling you that your services are no longer needed.

When people with high income skills changes clients, they mostly maintain their high income unlike salary workers. So as per the headline, when I talk about being rich, it's not rich interns of cash but riches in terms of wisdom and knowledge. Are you rich enough to use the opportunity to set your life straight and make sure you don't fall into the category of people who will say "HAD I KNOWN" when another pandemic occurs, or when their bosses say "I DON'T NEED YOUR SEEVICES ANY LONGER"

In our next post, we'll be talking about passive income and ways you can earn passive income. So please ensure you follow us to get updated.
