A Call For Survival;agony Of a young Hustler. by Prolificdeman: 7:09pm On Sep 17, 2017
Good day Nairalanders.
Actually, I have being following several posts and comments on Nairaland forum with regards been an entrepreneur and living a successful life aside the squared embellish paper termed "certificate".
I am an undergraduate,probably from a average background. Pending to the fact that my father's accidental exit has contributed negatively to the current condition of my family's economic,aside this,prior to my first year in the university I have always prayed to live an independent life as a student but in this case reverse is the case.
Hence, with the current economic mishap in the country coupled with my father's death ,it seems to be more hectic for my mother to continue handling our training in school, as such I have aimed at least living 70% independently as a student yet this dream keep fading on daily basis.
I have ventured into different hustles ranging from industrial cleaning,painting,sales of broken tiles, serving of mason and lastly selling of hair creams but non seem to make any good impact.
The most awful part was the last which we went as far as importing the cream from Lagos down to Owerri,as well as pasting bills as an object of advertisement and going to universities to sell the product yet none seem to yield any positive result in my financial life.
Please my readers the aim of writing this long piece is to probably seek for suggestions and idea,whether there are things am missing or lacking that is constituting bad luck to this last attempt of mine I have over 10 products bought but only 5 sold for the past 1month with other buyers showing lackadaisical attitude to it.
Again I write to seek for suggestions,ideas and advises from you all on other businesses I can venture into that wont affect my academics including the strategies to implement on the one I have at hand in a verge to get rid of this shackles of poverty revolving round my life.
Thanks, as I hope to hearing from you soon.

Apart from the obvious flaws in your use of English, I can clearly identify your passion and zeal for Financial success. However, you need to understand that passion alone will not take you to the top. You Need To Develop Yourself Mentally With The Knowledge and Requisite skills necessary to prepare you for the challenges ahead.

Books of popular authors like Carl Newport, Barbara Oakley, Jim Rohn, Anthony Robins amongst others would be of great help.

Lastly do not loose focus on your academics in a bid to attain financial freedom. Focus on your studies and get the best out of it.

Those are very lucrative skills in this part of the country. I think a major drawback is your location. All the best.

bros I thank God for u still have that hustling spirit ,I can smell the reason why those stuff is not selling, bear it in mind that when selling any products to folks out there consider your marketing and communication skills, secondly don't just choose any kind of product you feel like it's gonna sell ,first of all carry out what is called marketing research and know what the prospects want, how they want it and where they want it,
in case you don't know
