A salary of 100k is not a job security in Nigeria, because it cannot pay tuition fees in (Covenant University,  igbinedion,aun  etc), do you think your 100k is a salary now? Don’t be surprise, when a level two seller on Fiverr makes that much within a few days.

Lindaikeji is having a home on Banana Island in Lagos because she does not rely on any monthly income. Decide to start a side-hustle and you may turn your side hustle into a real job.

So when next you think that your 100k is salary, you must be kidding, people make that much without breaking a sweat.

Think again, if you can make more than 100k from side hustle within a couple of days, start a side hustle!  

Establish A Brand For Yourself As A Side Hustle

Office jobs are tiresome, but despite the rigorous office work, you need to establish a brand for yourself. Sharon-Lopez have an office job and she stills make about $5 per day on Bitlanders, that’s a side Hustle!

Broke has always been Nigeria’s youth problem.  Being broke is a state of not having the required finances to foot-in certain bills. But you can never go broke when you have a couple of side hustle.

In this case, when you have a single source of income in Nigeria, you are virtually broke. When you are broke, it isn’t because you didn’t save properly; it is only because you decided not to start a side hustle that would enrich your bank account.

There are several high paying skills you can use to start a side hustle, examples are web design, Graphic design etc. if you don’t have the money to pay for this side hustle starts-up, use your salary to pay. A little token from your salary can go a long way to make you the money you need from your side hustle.

You don’t need to start big, start small and grow your money like vegetation on a fertile land. That’s how you’d never go broke!


Dreams are the realities in our sleep that keep us awake in our lives, give us the edge to do more, and makes us stand tall. Then dream, the dream of becoming your own boss, an entrepreneur employ people to work for you. Start a side hustle and take control of how much you earn per day and in a year.

Nigeria is a country with a population of over 150 million people, the Government and the private sectors in the country cannot provide jobs for all these people.

Thus, the need for creating a side hustles for yourself even if you have been giving a Governmental job, or when working in a private sector is necessary for becoming your own boss.

With the above-mentioned reason, you can start a side-hustle that would probably become an established business in Nigeria or your own country of origin.

There’s no limit to what you can do, just believe, be strong and become consistent in trying to achieve your goals.
