You cant make it once in the twinkle of an eye,God doesn’t bless like that.
Just find something you are good at and write about it ,if its entertainment,news,education write about it. Dont be a copy and paste blogger sha,Be original,write meaningful things about your passion.

The mini importation business is one easy way to get you out of your financial troubles. It’s a very profitable way to make money online and offline in Nigeria as an undergraduate irrespective of the institution you find yourself in.

For example the founder of host sleek technologies one of Nigeria’s top web hosting companies founded host sleek as an undergraduate now the business is booming. In his first year he didn’t make money but consistency and hard-work paid off later.Same thing about the founder of 9jaflaver.com Mr Ejump we read his story on this forum yesterday too.
What you do in universities,polytechnics or other tertiary institutions has a long way of taking places in Life.
