If you ain't making money online, it's either YOU DON"T NEED MONEY OR U R SICK, i wrote that in CAPS so u'll know how seriouse i am, In less than 42 hours, i sold 21 copies of "How To Make $24,000 On The Internet In 24 Hours" at the cost of N1,500 Only. And the cash it brought into my account was: N1,500 x 21 = N31,500. If you are sharp enough, you too can begin to earn like this, not just once but for a life time, see how on www.coolcashzone.blogspot.com

il y a des dizaines de milliers de nigerians en France et aussi beaucoup d´enfants nés de parents nigerians. il n´a en a pas autant qu´a Londres ou aux Etats Unis mais il y en a de plus en plus car la France est un beau pays aussi et il y avait beaucoup de travail.

je bosse ici, mon travail me fait beaucoup voyager donc je suis en Amerique du sud(Argentine, Bresil) pour maximum 18mois et puis j´irais decouvrire un autre pays.

non je ne suis pas une star, loin de la, je suis juste tres chanceux de pouvoir faire un boulot qui me plaise et qui me fasse voyager! LOL

i did 3 commercials when i was 11yrs old and and through that i got a top part in a movie, all before i turned 13yrs old.

i was too young to spend any of the loot and only got 20% while the rest was put in a saving account till i was 21(thats the law). the first thing i did when i got the money at 21 was to get a FAT ride which i totalled within 2yrs!!!!!

The first income i earned was as a model. That was years ago as a teenager.

I was more excited about it than the money i received for doing it, so I gave it all to my mum.

I spent mine buying cloths and and drinks

It's very interesting spending ur first salary roughly

I don't think there are up to 5% who spend their first

salary wisely.

I was about 5years old when I started receiving income. My two uncles who lives with us pay me to pick balls for them whenever they are playing lawn tennis and also pay me when I help them wash their cars. I made money and fell in love with my job so much that I started charging my father for services. I had a small saving box where I drop the earning.

I think my first accumulated income was robbed off me by a Lebanese jackpot owner. I sneaked out from church with my friends and went there with all my savings and this old man kept encouraging me to play and play in order to win big until I lost all my money. I became heart broken, started crying and went into depression after that[na N5 we de talk about here]. It pained me so much b/c I worked hard for that money. When my dad heard that I went and gambled, he whipped me like a dog but later paid me back my lost savings.

I bought beer plenty for my men. Went partying through the weekend. Gave about half to my mum. Now I am wiser as the guy said, not that I regret the life anyways!

But will those days of youth come again, I wish

I give kudos to the old men, they are known for their wisdom,

that small adage is a time tested and proven one.

I spent my first income on expensive phone which got stolen

after few weeks of purchase.

But up till now i've used my last kobo on equity investment.

Now think i'm wiser
