That’s my plan. No kids, no spouse, parents deceased. I’ll never be able to retire. On PSLF, but forgiveness not approved until 120th payment. Many are not being forgiven now. I take courses to stay in deferment. FedLoan bases payment on gross; not net. How does that make any sense?! After bills I can’t afford the payment. I have 3 grad degrees. Was supposed to be a psychologist. APA & NCE won’t accept my 15yo degrees for the national exam. So I teach at a CC. Over 180,000 in debt now and it grows monthly.
Interest in the niche. Passion/huge interest is a bonus. People really underestimate this point. You’ll be eating, drinking and breathing this product/niche for weeks, possibly months and years to come if it's successful and you start focusing on growing it. Having an interest in it makes things so much easier and helps you keep going when things get tough.
College can be a great time to learn the ins and outs of investing so you can become a smarter investor when you begin earning a full-time paycheck. If you don’t have the time to learn about investing, but want to get a head start on building a nest egg so you can retire early, Betterment is a hands-free way to earn regular dividends that can turn a $100 investment into $1 million during your lifetime.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by the site. I’m sorry about the difficulties you’ve faced with the Nigerian laws. Unfortunately there isn’t much that can be done if laws like that are in place. Why those laws are there, I don’t know. Many Nigerians seem to have the same problems. Instead of looking at general ways to start businesses or make money, you might use the internet to find strategies that are specific to Nigeria. Hopefully, in the future we can find a way to help more people start businesses in that country.
Warning: before clicking on that link, allow me to reiterate: tower defense is addictive! Don't blame me if you lose an hour or more of productivity. But if you, like me, just have to make it through all 50 levels (or 100 levels in challenge mode), I refer you to this collection of Desktop Tower Defense strategies. And a word of advice: upgrade a few towers to the maximum; don't spread your upgrades across a fleet of towers.
Selling textbooks can earn you some big bucks and really help out fellow students who may be looking for a discounted version of the book they need. And while the amount of money you can make from selling the books will largely depend on the books or classes themselves, it can be a nice way to make up some of the money you spent buying them in the first place.
