I Recently Lost My High Paying Job And I'm At A Crossroads On What To Do Next by Troubledmind: 10:40am On Jul 10, 2018
The job paid me well, and i was able to save a substantial sum of money in five months before being fired last week by my boss, i was double crossed by a co worker and my boss replaced me with him, he got what he wanted but thats not my problem, i already got what i wanted. My problem now is what to do with the money i was able to save.

I have skills i am eager to put to good use but i don't know if it'll bring results, I'm good with website creation, graphics, writting and a bit of programming, so i was thinking of getting myself a costly laptop capable of handling everything and hone my skills/passion, delve into fiverr and freelancing, then start a gaming blog, the first of its kind because I'm a game addict. Is there a way can succeed with this plans?

Lalasticlala please help a brother

Start a website/graphics development job, and see how it turns out. I don't know about gaming blogs and how well they would fare, plus the world seems to be hooked to Twitch or some of these gamer crowd related websites.

Op please can you explain to us the circumstances surrounding your being "double crossed by a co-worker" and subsequently being fired after just 5 months on the Job?

We can't just be blindly supporting bad tin and advising you on how to invest proceeds of possible fraud or embezzlement sad

Op! If I were you, I would use that substantial amount to buy a lot of cows and hire an herdsman because very soon cows will have more values than all Nigerians combines. If you know you know

Don't waste your money gambling. Put your skills to use with money saved, like start up your own business. You can repackage your cv and start applying for another job though.

To be rich, you seriously don't need to work under anyone.

This is where investment comes to your aid. The reason they said investment, have not just one stream of income. I have never been a jobberman before so I might really not have much to say. But I pray God will see you through. Good morning nairaland.

I am so sorry for what happened to you, accept my sympathy..

Yes, there are many things you can do that will also fetch you good and huge money higher than the one you are being paid.

I read you mentioned fiverr, I am into fiverr and made well over two million within 4 months.

There are lots of platforms that can pay you handsomely very well but i will like us to chat for more details..

You can contact me on whatsapp on 07039436875

Bro, if you really have all these skills then you are a millionaire in disguise, you don't need to work under someone.

Don't do gambling and later come here to cry.
