Make Money Online / Passive Income - How To Create A Multiple Streams Of Income by ikoiikenna: 09:34am On 4 Apr
For most people, the only method for earning income is their job. They will get up, go to into work, come home, and collect their paycheck at the end of the month – and they believe that was good enough for them. But when they start having children, they realize that one stream of income is not just enough because all of their income was reliant on one job, and if that job went away, the family suffers.

But how can you solve this problem carrying a big debt load, a full-time job, and the needs of a family? What you need to do is create more sources of revenue, even though they are not as much as your full-time job, so that if something happened to your job it would not be that disastrous.

Here is list of what to do:

Start Blogging: You can earn some income from advertisements and writing can pretty much be done whenever by filling in the gap in your time.

Start a Computer Consulting Business: it is nothing complicated, mostly just helping people select systems that match their needs, doing some tune-ups, and a few minor repairs. It is not time-consuming and earns you a regular income.

Flea Markets: Do you have stuff in your basement, attic or garage that is collecting stuff? If you do, pack up your SUV or car and go to the flea market. You can make few hundreds, even thousands, depending on what you are selling. You can go to the market every weekend or at least every other weekend.

Investments: Stocks, Bonds, annuities, etc. are great ways to earn passive income. If you are not financially oriented, you can hire a financial advisor who will help you choose the right investments for you. It is advisable to take a couple of finance classes to enable you to understand what your financial advisor is speaking about when he/she recommends an investment strategy. Done well, investments can pay off for years.

Network Marketing: Network marketing or multi-level marketing as it sometimes called is one of the most popular passive income streams. When you join a network marketing company, you become part of the team. The aim, for some, is to become a leader, such as a district leader manager of your area, because you earn more money.

Real estate: Believe it or not, real estate is a good way of earning extra income. Real estate investment includes fixing and flipping houses. This is highly capital intensive, so you can partner with someone if you can. You will attend housing auctions and bid on houses; you can get them for good price. Hire a contractor to fix up the inside and outside, have the house appraised, sell it, make a profit and split the profits between you and your partner.

Start a freelance business: Have you thought of owning your own business. You could start a side business while working full-time. For example, if you are a graphic designer, you could start your own graphic or web design business on the side. If you like to make jewelry, you can sell at craft fairs and online and make a good income.

The real goal here is financial freedom. By making yourself less dependent on a specific revenue stream, you are giving yourself independence and flexibility to make choices that you never had before.

W.E/General / Entrepreneurship Role In Job Creation And Economic Growth by Ikoiikenna: 06:25pm On 4 Apr
Entrepreneurs and SMEs in Nigeria are now seen as the backbone of the economy. Already there are policies on the ground that encourage the growth of small businesses, and entrepreneurship plays a very vital role that's considered to be healthy for the economy at large.

So what's this link between entrepreneurship and job creation?

Here's a fact, for a capitalist economy to thrive, there has to be innovation, competition, and growth. Successful entrepreneurs tend to be competitive in nature, think outside of the box type, and this has enabled them to find easy answers to difficult tasks in their businesses.

When President Obama said in 2014, for example, that small businesses had created 64% of the new jobs in the previous decades, this is how they got it done.

Startup businesses Challenge Existing Market
When a startup business enters a local or global market, they stir things up. Very few businesses open and try to be the exact replica of a competitor. Even if they have a similar mission statement and value propositions, they still create a new pattern that will showcase their brand differently. New businesses may start by bringing an existing product to a new market segment, by first, drawing customers away from other business. While older companies are either forced to make changes or lose their market share.

Market Breakthroughs Can Cause New Job Fields to Open
In the manufacturing industry, a lot have been said about how robotics breaks and continues to disrupt traditional manufacturing jobs, which have lead to the reduction in the line jobs.

However, other fields have taken advantage and opened up to needs for alerts, program systems, maintain systems and repairs as they are needed. Netflix, for instance, breaks the video rental industry to the point that renting of videos in the neighborhood video store is more or less a thing of the past. And in its place, people now stream movies and television to their TVs through a paid subscription service.

Small Startup Businesses are More Flexible Small start-up businesses usually start with fewer staffs, less overhead, and equipment than big companies.
In a typical market setting, this can be a disadvantage. In terms of, lacking the clout to organize discounts on certain products, or be unable to hire the very best hands because they can’t offer the same kind of compensation packages as big companies. But small businesses are much more flexible since they can adjust to changing market conditions than big businesses. They're quick to react to an opportunity, and can also operate on a timescale of weeks or months, whereas big businesses need enough settings and approvals in advance in order to get things done.

Competition Pushes Businesses to Streamline Although small businesses are more flexible overall, big businesses can survive disruption when pushed to become more streamlined, so as to maintain their power while minimizing their bulk. And streamlining big businesses can drive innovation just as much as nimble small businesses can.
As a small business becomes successful, it faces additional challenges from other small, startup companies that are able to innovate more quickly and disrupt more profoundly.

Real Estate / African Real Estate Industry And Green Revolution by ikoiikenna: 02:30pm On 4 Apr
Africa is currently undergoing economic growth at an amazing pace that everywhere in the world, investors are scrambling to share in on this. Physical distances are shortening, urban markets are expanding, information and communication costs have reduced tremendously. And not leaving out transport infrastructure and macroeconomic conditions, which have so much improved than decades ago.

However, there is some academic debate on Africa ability get out of poverty in the 21st century, most of the opinions differ from each other and some largely on how viable present-day Africa growth directions are, there is also a known consensus that agricultural transformation is vital to the smooth present and future welfare gains.
In the long run, it was agreed that recent signs of agricultural productivity growth from a long term, is the boat for present-day developments and demographic growth which does raise the possibility that Africa will complete for a green revolution of its own.

The introduction of ‘Green Revolution’ in Africa couldn't have been better. It occurred exactly in the period when the population growth reached its zenith. With this comes the responsibility to keep pace with population growth. According to a recent report by UN, the population in the world will increase from 7 billion to 10 billion at the end of this century. About 50% of the calculated increase is expected to occur in Sub-Saharan Africa alone, this projection has shown the need to improve and balance the growth in urban areas with that of the rise in rural incomes. As it is, the majority of Africans is still employed in agriculture, so improving rural living standards is the vital instrument to curbing the further increase in socioeconomic backgrounds.

Favorably, there is a renewed focus on national and international markets on rural development in Africa. After a long period of neglect, investors are increasingly recognizing Africa's economic, and geographic diversity. In addition, there is a calculated ambition to do away with the environmental costs of the green revolution in terms of land erosion, water, and soil pollution. Agreed on the need for a green revolution clarifies the need to combine agricultural productivity growth with a more improved form of economic management.

Lastly, It is crucial to recognize that most of the technological advances are contributing to the development and need for urbaner demographic growth. In addition, the more close African countries with a historical legacy of rural intensification are, the more favorable for giant colonial structures. More, the effects of climate change are likely to expand intra-African diverseness and raise intra-African movement. In other words, it is possible to say that the Great Divergence that emerged at an increasing rate in the past centuries, will be seen within the Sub-Saharan Africa in the 21st century.

W.E/General / 5 Proven Steps To Financial Freedom by ikoiikenna: 12:21pm On 4 Apr
Sometimes it is easy to get lost in the simple detail of money management. Sometimes we forget the big picture. If you have resolved to take charge of your finances, then this article is for you. It is loaded with tips and resources for making the most of your money.

Here then are the simple but effective steps to take charge of your finances.

Step#1: Set Financial Goals
The road to riches is paved with goals. If you don’t know why you are doing this – why you are making sacrifices, why you are working really hard – it is very easy to fail. But if u set goals, they can serve as a roadmap when things get tough. Times you have to make a decision, your goals can help you stay focused on what’s important.

For your goal to be effective, you have to make them personal. They have to mean something to you. For example, your goal might be to save money for travel, pay up long term debts etc. Be prepared for setbacks. You are not going to meet your without mistakes. Stuff happens. The best way to deal with problem is to have plans before they occur.

Step#2: Track Every Penny you spend
It is advisable to track every penny that comes into and goes out of your life. This is the best way to become aware of how much money actually comes in and goes out. This is the step that makes the biggest impact. It doesn’t matter how you track your spending, the most import thing is to just do it.
• You can use cash notebook
• You can use online tool
• You can use a piece of software
Whichever method you choose, stick with it. Make it a habit. Don’t fudge the numbers. Record your transactions as they occur to you wouldn’t have to forget.

Step#3: Develop a budget
After you’ve tracked your expenses for a few weeks or months, use the data you have recorded to develop a budget. Budget is one thing that set wealthy apart from the rest. Most rich people keep a budget. Many people fail to budget for many reasons: it is boring, most people don’t think they need it, or they just don’t know how. But this simple act can provide a roadmap for your money.

Spend less that you earn. This is the basic money skill. It is common sense, yet most people never learn to do it. Only when you spend less that you earn can you build wealth. This is easy to do only when you track your spending and develop a budget.

Step#4: Earn Extra Income
You can meet a lot of your financial goals by reducing spending and using the right tools. But nothing can propel your progress like a boost in income. Here are ways you can get extra money:
• Ask for a raise.
• Switch employers. Not every employer is able or willing to offer a raise, even when they are merited. If you find yourself in this situation consider finding a job.
• Take a second job
• Use your hobbies

Step#5: Fund your Retirement
If you are young, you probably don’t see a reason you need to start a retirement account. You are wrong. No matter your age now is the time to start saving for retirement. The extraordinary power of compound interest favors the young in a big way.

Taking charge of your finances can be challenging. But it doesn’t have to be that way. One effective way is to take a vacation day from work. Take this day to finally set up yourself and you will see yourself walking down that road to financial freedom.

Agriculture / How To Start Snail Farming Business In Nigeria And Make Profit by ikoiikenna: 10:42pm On 4 Apr
Do you know that you can make up to millions from snail farming in Nigeria? Do you know that snail farming could change your money less history of your life? Stop wondering, it is nothing but the truth, wait! how do you think you can do it?

Snail farming business in Nigeria is a business that entails the rearing of snails from its infantile stage to the biggest and edible stage- adult.
Knowing fully well that you might be wondering how lucrative and profitable this business is, here is an illustration to cease your doubting thought.
A normal kind of snail lays about 600 eggs in 6 months and between 2 to 3 weeks, they hatch and within a year, it matures.

Now, if you have 60 snails for start, you will have about 36,000 snails at the end of 6 months.
When matured, each snail sells for #50 * 36,000 = #1,800,000 or more within 1 year and 6 months.

Are you not ready to learn and earn? I Guessing you are now, so let's proceed.
While focusing on how you can totally be free and spend your time doing what matters most to you while spending about two to three hours watching over your snails. Also, you would have more time to focus on your side job.

Right from time immemorial, snail farming is one of the agricultural business which many are yet to tap into. Though you've summoned the courage to start, here are cool guides on how you can eventually start your snail farm with little or no amount. Read on!

This is basically where you will be keeping your snails.Depending on the kind of snail you would be rearing ( we would discuss the species of snails later, be at ease) you must provide a decent, clean, nonacidic, too dry or swampy area for your snails. Preferably, a sandy-loamy land is the best place for rearing your snails. It is there, they would lay eggs, renew shells and rests on.
Provide a well-shaded environment for your snail to ensure they are free from sunlight. It is advisable that you provide places under the banana, mango or pineapple trees to ensure due to coolness.

Block the environment with a tiny net that would protect them from rodents and predators which might insist on killing your snails. Avoid excess wind or sunlight as it dehydrates your snail and prevents them from growing.

While looking forward to the kind of snails you can reach out for. There are numerous kinds but the best I would recommend is called Achatina Achatina which is mostly found in West Africa and present in Nigeria, they are fatter and heavier, egg layers and equivalently red-brownish in color.
Don't forget there are two main sources for your snail. One from the bush, other from the market. But the most healthier are from the bush embedded with natural habitat. No matter the case, make sure you get the best!

There isn't much problem when it comes to feeding. Local green leaves, plantain, pineapple and banana could be given a chance. Start feeding the numbers you can gather and start enjoying the long awaited patience, yes! It is patience, they are what you must have to grow them.

After surviving in growing and marketing your snails, be sure your account balance in this recession time would change from three digits to eight! Cheers as I look forward to your testimonials!
