It was a Saturday evening when I was going through my Whatsapp status, then I saw my friend Claudia showing off Monday from her status saying “Join Me and change your life”. That period of my life was a very difficult and hard moment .. I replied to her status asking her what the money was for and she explained that I had to attend a briefing so all my questions would be answered, I picked up my phone and gave my friend Daniella a call saying I just came across a business opportunity that would help us in life.
She came over on Sunday and we went for the briefing … while in the briefing, only then I realized that I was being a lazy youth as I was focused on finishing school and earning a huge as monthly salary but that wasn’t a good reason enough because I learnt that we have to step out of the linear income (employment and self employment quadrant) and step into the residual income (Business and investment quadrant).
It’s like I was awakened from slumber I went back home thinking as I had to begin with one account of 80,000FCFA i was empty, I couldn’t even turn to my mom as she was a single mom and I had three siblings, we were close to the beginning of the school year and I just couldn’t bring up that topic to my mom not at that moment…
The following day I called my cousin in the United States knowing he wouldn’t support me on my plans for joining a network marketing business I had to lie saying that I wouldn’t complete school if I don’t give a deposit of 200,000FCFA at my university to continue school for some reasons, though it was difficult but I somehow managed to convince him…
I know it was wrong to lie but I was seeking for financial freedom and I didn’t want to call every now and then to ask for money from him so I wanted to build a system that will make me financially free, I wanted to build leverage.
When he sent the money I went in for the business without my moms knowledge I got two accounts, I started the first few days I felt some changes , I built charisma, I became more mature, I worked on my public speaking skills and how to manage Money too .
I bought myself and my family a land and built a comfortable house and we all were happy just in two years of doing the business.
