I learnt this lessons about high income job and high income skills from Dan Lok, author of Unlok-It. Going through the book it was a weekend of revealations for me, and I felt I had to share to you too.
There are many ways to get rich but it has never been this easier, like it is in our time .
Only problem is, in our time, there are numerous distractions; from video games, to netflix and chill, to hangouts, to social media, you name them.
I am not saying winding down or relaxing is not ideal. But check your time. No, dont just read it for reading sake, actually check your time. If you are reading from Nigeria, today is a public holiday.
Check yesterday, it was monday. Grab a pen and paper, write:
- 4 to 5 am
- 5 to 6 am
- 6 to 7am
Now write that way till 11pm (2300 hrs). After each put a hypen and write what you did within that hour.
- 4am to 5am: Sleeeping/Reading
- 5am to 6am: Reading/ Exercise/ Chores/ News
Make sure you write it till 11pm. Check properly, how many hours did you invest in your financial goals?

The shocking thing is that these things happen without you knowing, gradually these distractions become habits.
Now there are three ways to get rich:
- High income job
- High income profession
- High income skill
HIGH INCOME JOB:
A high income job are jobs that pay quite high, compared to the average Nigerian salary or compared to the minimum wage in Nigeria (N30,000).
A perfect example is climbing the coporate ladder. Now, while these ones pay high. The room for income growth is low. For instance, at entry level you are being paid 150K; with time, your needs and wants meet the money.
Meanwhile, before you get a promotion, it takes 4 to 5 years. Another angle is that you have no control over your finance. What if your boss decides to fire you?
HIGH INCOME PROFESSION
Now, a high income profession, is industry dependent. This is where you get the lawyers, lecturers, accountants, realtors, etc. (I mean earning over 200k is high in a country where the minimum wage is 30k).
The high income profession uses credentials, the more alphabets (SAN, PHD, OON, FNIM, FCAN, FOOT, PROF, DR, ARC.,) you have after your name or in front of your name, the higher you earn.
For instance, you are a paediatrician (child doctor) or dentist (teeth doctor), your market is booming, and you are making money, then suddenly the market starts going down (as it does in the economic cycle) due to maybe decrease in supply or increase in amount of doctors. What happens? your money goes down!
Also, many high income professions are location dependent. Not many people are going to drive 30 miles to see you, no matter how good you are. That is why I teach High income skill development.
HIGH INCOME SKILL
Now whenever I mention skills, what comes to the mind of so so so many people is, baking, barbing, welding, carpentry, electrician, refridgerator and air conditioner technician, plumbing, aliminium technician, tiling, hair-dressing, nail technician, etc.
Now those skills are not bad. No they are not. If you add focus and determination, you find out that those skills are not bad. You can actually make mad money from it. But when I talk of high income skills, I mean skills that can give you $10,000 (N5,720,000) in a month.

High income skills are limitless. It gives you the most freedom because what you are worth is only capped by what you can bring to the marketplace.
It is not company dependent because you can go to another client who will want your service. it is not industry dependent because a high income skill works across all industries. Its not also location dependent because a high income skill does not require your physical presence as long as you can deliver value to your customers.
With the advancements in tech, its easier than ever to work from home, a coffee shop, or anywhere you’d like.
Once you acquire your High income skill, you will be able to start living your life with a real financial confidence.
