Start a Blog
blogging is a very good way to also make extra income, and with time and if managed well, has the potential to become a full time income generator. We have seen so many people leave their 9-5 jobs to blog full time after running a blog as a side hustle for a period of time.
Not only does blogging give you the potential for full time income, it will also serve as a means of passive income stream and with time lead to financial freedom.
The best thing about blogging is that you blog about something you are passionate about, which means it will be more of a hobby to a work thing
So if you are determined, persistent and very, very, very hardworking, this could be a very good way to change your life for the best.
