You need a high income job right?
You need a high income job right?

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
a close up a little boys handwriting
For real, Go back, get a paper and pen and write

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?

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?

Being a doctor is a good one, please don’t get me wrong!

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.

Welding is a good one, do not get me wrong! But it is no high income skill.
Welding is a good one, do not get me wrong! But it is no high income skill.

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.

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.

3 ALARMING MISTAKES PEOPLE MAKE ONCE THEY DECIDE TO START AFFILIATE MARKETING

What I am about to share to you today is 3 costly mistakes people make once they decide to start Affiliate marketing.

From coaching and helping people to make hundreds of thousands of naira, I have put together three dreaded mistakes you should avoid to succeed as an Affiliate marketer.

I have coached over 50 persons on this same Affiliate marketing and they now do so well that I now call them colleagues, so I think I can share this:

1. INCONSISTENCY

This is the one that pains me much personally. Because, there is nothing that you give attention to, that will not grow.

One of my student, Timi, started Affiliate marketing with Expertnaire at N40,000 and once he made N40,000 in a week, he relaxed. It took him about 4 weeks before he made another sale. Probably when he has finished the other money.

One of the bad things that Ponzi has done to Nigerians is what I call ‘the easy way’.

First off, I have never done any ponzi scheme asides Loom. (Well, I made money before it crashed though 😊😊😊).

Also, I stopped betting since November 2016 ( will tell this story another day), so I don’t believe in freebies. Even in Freetown there is no freebie.

LACK OF MENTORSHIP

My friend Jennifer once told me that whatever knowledge one is looking for is on the internet, and I asked, “why is everyone not milking this knowledge then?”

A mentor is someone that guides you, and serves as a role model, helping you avoid mistakes he made, so you can attain success quicker.

I am not saying you won’t succeed without a mentor. But then, having someone who is showing you the gutter he fell into so you can jump over, will make the journey easier for you

This is why people keep coming to me for mentorship. Because of the guide and help I render.

It’s not about just bringing you into Affiliate marketing. I will hold you by the hand and guide you personally till you make your first 5 sales.

Lady tired of her 9-5 job

Amongst these which take weeks are

  • Copywriting

Same thing with Bolt, Uber, who make their money off Affiliate marketing.

How? Uber has no car not buys fuel. They just provide buyers (customers) to sellers (Uber drivers) and get a commission off each Uber ride.

This is the earning of a colleague, as at 27 Aug, 2021

WHAT REALLY IS SCALABLE INCOME?

Scalable income

Scalable income sounds like a sweet rhyming word, but I will break it down for you to get what I mean.

Many times people complain about their wives, boss, family, church members, colleagues, friends; look very well, it all boils down to money.

Money governs everything, or as some would say, answereth all things.

Now, in Nigeria my country, many people are thrilled with getting a job, and once they get the job they feel relaxed and complacent.

Ten years later, you still see them on the job, being all grumpy about it, yet refusing to quit.

But then, when they compare themselves to their ‘mates’ who don’t have a ‘job’, it feels like they’ve been overtaken.

SCALABLE INCOME:

Scalable income simply means income that can grow. Now, when you get employed at a job, you are being paid for your skills and time.

But the difference is, while your pay is sure, it is fixed. Even in cases where promotion is attainable, you find out that before the promotion comes, it takes at least 7-10 years.

To get scalable income, you need a side job while at your main hustle.

Whenever, side hustle is mentioned, you may want to complain that you have no time. But in 20 years from now you will still have no time.

The danger in this is that, as you grow your expenses scale up (grow). If you are on a job where your income is fixed, you might be doing okay today, but what happens when your expenses have now scaled hugely over that your fixed income.

It doesn’t necessarily have to be a business. Start with a digital skill. Your earnings might not be enough at the beginning. That is why you should stay at your 9-5, to get money to pay bills

But, you should keep on with the digital skills, as your expertise increases so does your income increases too.

For this job, you see above, there was a time I took similar jobs for 20k and even 17k. But as my expertise scaled up, so did my income.

You can’t grow rich off a job! Seek a side hustle, most preferably a digital skill and invest in yourself.

31 DIGITAL SKILLS THAT CAN GIVE YOU MONEY FROM YOUR HOME

digital skill

If you are one of those crying about unemployment or being underemployed, I think you are the reason for your financial state. Not with the inflow of income from digital skills.

As a matter of fact, the Kuwaiti Dinar (N1,367.77) is mind-blowing. Yet, daily this economy keeps crumbling and the government seems more confused.

NOW COMPARE NIGERIA’S UNEMPLOYMENT TO GHANA’S UNEMPLOYMENT:

Do you see Ghana’s unemployment rate? – 4.5%. In Nigeria, the rate is 33%. It means 33% of the population who should be working are not.

It also means that in every 10 persons who should be working, 3 are not working. 33 out of every 100 are not working. That is 300,000 out of every 1 million is not working.

It means one-third of the working population are not working. Nigeria’s population in 2021 is approximated to be 211.4 million people. 30% of this figure is about 63,420,000 (sixty-three million, four hundred and twenty thousand people).

You can imagine having this amount of people jobless, despite being ready to be employed.

I think I missed out on something.

Unemployment is when people are ready, able and willing to work, but do not find work.

WHAT I.L.O. SAYS ABOUT UNEMPLOYMENT:

By the International Labour Organisation definition, a person is employed when they work at least 40 hours a week. The working-age is regarded as between 15 and 60.

Also, an acceptable level of unemployment would be 4%-6%. Normally, most countries would be so happy, to have what we have — a huge Labour supply; and every year it is increasing. (See how many people are in NYSC, see how many people graduating?)

But our country has no idea how to manage its own. From poor power supply to insecurity, to bad roads, to stupendous govt policies, people are afraid of where to invest in.

UNEMPLOYMENT AND RECESSION

Now, apart from the recession that our economy plunged into in 2016, in the wake of this COVID-19, last year, a serious recession hit the world and of course, hit our Nigeria.

But, as that recession happened, for some, it was their end. But for some, it levelled the playing ground. It opened their eyes to the beginning of a new world👉👉

Now, as of July 2021, the unemployment of the U.S was at 5.4%; yet they are complaining that their jobs are being exported out of their country.
