The fact is that adequate information on financial literacy is critical to every student’s financial well-being. Teachings on financial intelligence has been held for too long from us, and if something is not done fast enough, the effect on our nations will be too disastrous for us to bear. There is no reason why a student shouldn’t learn and make money while in school as far as the student spends money. No excuse is adequate enough, you need to make money and make it while still in school. Below are few eye-opening reasons why every student needs to make money while in school;
This is the best time to make money
There is actually no other time that is the best for you to start making money and if you don’t start now, when will you? This is actually the time you have some free funds and time, free fund in this context are funds you really do not labor for. It could be money from parents, relatives, guardians and the likes. This time is also when you have least financial load on you, there are no children, husband or wife to take care of presently and if you have is not too bad it will only make you more matured in your thinking than your age and this could be an advantage too, there are no taxes to pay at present and all these thing saps money away from older ones. This is the best time to make money, save money and invest it if you have a vision for a qualitative life in the future. Just act now friend there is no best time to start using your talent, offering a service or selling a product than now.
We all need money
Who on earth does not need money? We all need money to live comfortably on earth and as a student you need it to cater for your needs while in school and live comfortably without worries of what to eat or wear. The rich and the poor, the tall and the short, the good and the bad, the whites and the black, the learned and the unlearned, the skillful and the unskillful, the young and the old all needs money to survive, so everybody does need money friend. If truly we all need money then we must all learn to make money. Without money man can’t afford the basic necessities of life; as students we need money to eat well, look nice, to contest for student union elections, buy textbooks and other study materials, furnish our room in the best desired form, to get a ride to cruise around campus. A student that lacks money will envy those who have it; money is not actually readily available except to the one who knows how to make it. It is time to make the money and make it while in school.
School does not teach us about money
The reality is that our school system teaches us everything we ought to know except one of the most important thing – how to make money. It is so surprising that most of our universities, colleges, and polytechnics are places where practically little or nothing about money is taught and surprisingly the uneducated or school dropout learns more practically about money within months than an average undergraduate learns in his four years of study in school. The best students learn while in school is how to make money for their employers or how to manage his employer’s business, but they learn close to nothing on how to start making their own money for themselves, what an irony. If you want to learn anything about making money while in school, do not depend on your lecturers to teach you; do not be surprised that some of them do not even know how, the ones who claims to know can only tell theories, very few of them have practically tried their hands on something. All their lives, most of these lecturers have only worked for the government and collected their pay at the end of the month and most have no other source of income outside this, and if they lose it they are ruined, so how on earth are they expected to teach you about money, remember you cannot give what you don’t have. If the school system does not teach you about money then now is the best time to do all you can to know how to make money and if you fail it won’t affect you much now because you still have some free fund and no much responsibilities to take care of. Nobody will listen to you if your excuse for not making money in life is because you were not taught about money while in school, this is why you need to learn how to make money and make it right from school.
It prepares one for the future
We all desire to live a comfortable life after graduation but sadly only a few prepare ahead for this, you must know that only proper preparation prevents poor performance. A student that wants to build an enviable future will start to prepare for it right from school days when all of his peers have not yet started giving it a thought and with this he has a more stronger edge than them. Many student think their certificate will make up for their lack of preparation in school and this is a big lie, some just dabble into business with little or no knowledge about it and they fail but few still succeed but if only you started making money while in school it won’t be hard to make more and live comfortably after graduation, this is why every student needs to know how to make money and make it right from school. Many come out of school with great dreams to be fulfilled but they never prepare ahead for this, you can’t do it without money, real cash is needed to fulfill your dream, so learn how to make it now from school and it will help you a lot later.
I believe by now you should agree with me that our days in school are real opportunities to start learning how to make money and make it right from school. Don’t wait until after school when the reality of life hits you by the face, the pressure might be too heavy on you then, start from now in school.
