LET’S MAKE MONEY!

SPONSORED POST

2020 has been a long one to be honest. And boy, did the financial struggle make it any more terrific? For me that’s a huge YES! I’m a student and my ONLY source of income which is pocket money (lol) was cut off for monthsssss so financially amongst others, I struggled. This made me decide to look for ways to make money remotely, given that movement was restricted due to covid and remote work was my only option.

I believe in exchange of a product or a service for money because I feel that’s the only way it should rightly work. I did my research and I found a couple of things which could be of help if you’re interested in gaining a higher level of financial security because you’re tired of being broke like me or you’re in search of a skill that will help you gain money asides your regular 9-5.

P.S: If you’re not willing to work for your money, you probably shouldn’t be reading any further. However, if you think it’s worth it, stay with me

First is Copywriting.

If you’re into writing (like Ruona), you may want to develop and monetize this skill! Copywriting is the act of writing texts for the purpose of advertising/marketing. The beauty of copywriting is that you get to be a freelancer; you decide the jobs you get to do, when you want to and what you do not want to do and how much you get paid. The pay is so good I wonder why I don’t see a lot of copywriters. The demand is high but the available workforce is small and you don’t need to have a B.sc in copywriting just the skill and that’s a window to make your money!

People go to learn baking and tailoring because these skills put that extra cash in their pockets because they are always in need. But a life skill that will pay you forever is copywriting.

It gets better! Andy Mukolo a well-known copywriter (check the guy out on google, Copywriting genius!) is organising a discounted training for copywriters that takes you from the basics to the professional level of this thing of course including how to get your coins from it. If you’re interested in monetising your writing skills, you can see more about it HERE and also send me a TEXT.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t even know what copies are because that’s what the training is for. if you write, you should be forward thinking and take this opportunity.

Second is Digital and Affiliate Marketing.

How would you like to make money by marketing products and getting paid a commission? That is basically affiliate marketing. You don’t have to worry about moving around looking for who to buy what you’re selling. You can do so from the comfort of your laptop or phone, you stay digital. We spend a lot of time on these devices, its high time you start making money off them as well.

At some point this year, my friend introduced me to 72IG digital marketing training. It is a presently discounted digital marketing training by Mr. Toyin Omotoso, a marketing expert. The training offers a one-year free affiliate marketing subscription on expertnaire which is an affiliate marketing platform with really high commission rates; way higher than jumia and the others.

While training with Mr.Toyin, you get even higher rates in comparison to those just registering directly on expertnaire as an affiliate marketer and you get taught how to do this affiliate marketing thing the right way. I am saying “the right way” because I know a number of people that have registered for affiliate marketing on various platforms and they didn’t do so well. These skills you get from this 72IG programme you can use them to make money for yourself outside of affiliate marketing, you apply them to any business at all!

When my friend was telling me about this training, I was dulling because fear plus I wasn’t ready to put in the work until she made 100k in about a week (girl put in the work like you would if you need money). I know someone who took this training with and makes over 400k per month, just from affiliate marketing and you get paid your earnings every week. This is an amazing passive income course. I’m presently going through the course and the training itself is worth more than the investment honestly. I wish I registered earlier but I’m glad I took the step because I always knew it is not in my destiny to receive salary 12 times in a year and I had to do something to change that lol. If you want to know more about the training, click the link below and send me a whatsapp message so I can show you how:

There’s a popular saying that “anything worth doing is worth doing well”. Whatever you’re going to do as a side hustle, you’re going to need capital, guidance, a work ethic and a goal. If you’re going to achieve the dream of financial security and independence, the best investment to make is to invest in yourself, increase your value, nobody can take theknowledge you have away from you and you can harness it into absolutely anything you wish to.

You’re allowed to be tired but you’re not allowed to stop chasing your dream. Send me a MESSAGE and let’s take steps to financial stability and security together. Also, if you’re interested in starting an online business i.e selling stuff online, message me as well. I have something for you.

Cheers, until next time and stay safe!

Favour ThankGod.

Familiarity Still Breeds Contempt

Give someone an inch and they take a mile? 

It still happens!!!

You’d think that as we grow older, people will begin to respect themselves around others but it’s obvious that the memo hasn’t gotten to everyone because if it has, then everyone and I mean EVERYONE should know that when it comes to people, there is a line that should not be crossed, no matter how close you are to them.

My family is very private. We’ve lived at our house for about 10 years and most of the people around us don’t even know our names. I’m very positive that some of them have written my brother and I off as rude people 😂 because we don’t have time for anyone but the truth of the matter is that we don’t have the energy for what people call ’see finish’.

In case you’re wondering what ’see finish’ is, it is a pidgin term that loosely translates to ‘to have seen it all’. It is a slang that is used to explain that someone has become too familiar with you to the extent that he/she begins to disrespect you. In other words, your ratings have dropped from maybe a 5 to a 2 or even 1 and a half.

’See finish’ easily describes the big grammar that’s my title (I should have just titled this blog post ’how to avoid see finish’ but the professoin me won’t allow it).

As I was saying, we don’t really talk to people around our area but I can be a very sociable person if I’m in the mood. ’Iya Kunle’ likes me because I’m always shouting ”Good morning Maaa” at the top of my lungs anytime I see her and then there’s Mr. John who never fails to greet me with a smile. There’s also this guy that works at the carwash close to my house whom I started talking to around last year. He’s the subject of the gist for today. 

I cannot remember exactly how we started talking but I know that a routine formed anytime I was going out or coming back. He always waved and said hi. Sometimes, I’d stop and we’d chat a little about random stuff (if you’ve noticed, I’m using past tense because all of that is history now) and it was cool because he seemed like a nice person.

One day out of the blues, Uncle asked for my phone number and I was like ”Why do you want my number? What will we talk about? I’m sorry, but I don’t think it’s necessary”. In my mind, I was like ”When did we even reach that level? Because of ordinary hi and what did you buy for me?”

He didn’t stop there. He kept on bugging me and I kept declining. Eventually, he stopped asking. Our usual greetings continued until I noticed that he was beginning to get too comfortable. He started catcalling and shouting my name to get my attention while making improper jokes. I was already getting pissed but I didn’t say anything about it. I continued normally until the day he did something that turned out to be the last straw.

So I was going to get fuel one day and this guy started shouting my name. It was evening and people were around. I would have answered but I was already tired of his behavior so I ignored him. The next thing I heard was ”This girl ehn, na wa for you” and he legit threw the chewed cob of corn in his hand in my path to get my attention and I missed a step and nearly fell. I was so angry and under normal circumstances, I would have turned to give him a piece of my mind. I even heard someone say ”wetin the girl do you na? Una be friends?”

I gathered myself and silently walked away without giving him the attention he badly wanted. On my way back, he shouted ”The thing wey I throw touch you? Sorry o”. In my mind, I was like, ”I really thought this one had sense. He actually thinks that what he did was funny”. I was so annoyed and I kept thinking that if I hadn’t started responding to his greetings in the first place, this would not have happened. I’ve stopped now and I’m pretty sure that he has gotten the message.

The point I’m trying to put across is that I put myself in a position where I became too familiar with this person. Some people may consider what happened to me as a small thing that can be ignored but being the kind of person that I am, there are some things that I don’t just take lightly and I don’t think you should too because it could have been something more. I mean, this is how it starts!

People should know their place but at the same time, do not put yourself in a position where people will disrespect you. A lot of people you think have pride are not really proud. It’s just self-respect. The way you carry yourself around people determines how they begin to see you. If they become too comfortable and feel that they know all there is to be known about you, you begin to lose value and they tend not to see you as the big deal that you are. This is why they say “na see finish dey turn ’Good morning’ to ’How far’.”

So basically, this is me reminding you that familiarity still breeds contempt. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t be friends with people or anything. What I’m saying is that there’s a line that shouldn’t be crossed. Don’t allow people to disrespect you in the name of friendship. Don’t be too tolerant. Have standards! If your friends really care, they’ll respect you. Also, the moment you notice that some of your friends and family have begun to cross that line and they’re now bordering on being disrespectful, don’t hesitate to put them in their place or you can just put quality distance between yourselves because this is a zero-tolerance zone.

Love,

’Ruona. ❤️

P.S:

What’s Popping?

Have you been in a position where familiarity bred contempt?

I mean, have you been in a position where someone saw you finish?

How did you handle it?
