25. That was last year. My money entered one million in Nov 2017, and in less than a year I quadrupled it.

Update: I made it from freelancing, Amazon publishing, Cryptocurrency trading and importation.

Nice thread...

Last year 2017, I made close to a million on Fiverr (writing niche) until everything chickened out (project and final year stress made me stop). After graduation, my account couldn't stand on it feet anymore.
(After months of trying to revive d account, I figure out you need a professional skill to survive on d platform and writing alone won't do)
Now, I am broke AF. Back to d drawing board and trying to learn a new skill. But it's being very challenging due to NYSC service.

BTW, i'll be greatful if anyone here can mentor/guide me on any professional skills as a freelance

mind telling us how you did it?
importation plus I went to Mr A, B , C, D and E got prices of their products. Added a reasonable something on top and started an online store for products I didn't own.

Of course it's not as easy as I wrote, as I had an Abraham that made it easy to access those big men to release items on credit. With profits I got my own products which I'm currently working on trademarking them. The next tv or home theater you buy might have NnamdiN as a brand name.

BiafranBushBoy:


You wanna hear some lazy man investments?

Smiles... No...

First I started with affiliate marketing... I set it up while working full time. It took over a year to make $50.

The aim is to keep expenses to the barest minimum while working hard.

Once it started gaining traction. I veered off into blogging and started selling information products.

It wasn't hard to start earning $600 monthly.

I dived into Amazon kindle publishing...

End result was that within 6 months just clocking 25, I was there...

Then I already gain traction. Everything is now automated...

I still kept my 7 - 4 job.

The aim is to keep expenses very low. Do away liabilities like phones, shoes and new clothes and reinvest profit

I don't have any liquid assets, I love making my profits myself and saving the others.
that's the secret sir

Well, I made my first milla indirectly sort of. I had up to 5 juicy scholarships while in school, which totalled up to 750k per annum.

I didn't really depend so much on the cash though so I had much of it saved away in my accounts.

After about 3 consecutive years in school, I had a net balance of a mill plus.

I guess I got paid for studying. smiley
You were unfortunate

Hello fellow nairalanders and business men, I was at the verge of making my first million naira early this year but I got carried away by the euphoria and made some bad investments which later backfired and left me bankrupt... However, I'm recuperating now, and I just wanted to know at what age you guys made your first million naira and how you did it or the investments you made.

This is just to serve as a motivation to our young and upcoming brothers and sisters still in the labor market struggling to make ends meet.

Thanks
