|Travel Advice Needed by Billions123: 2:10am On Oct 02, 2020|
Hello Fam I need your quick advice!
I'll try to be as detailed as possible while keeping it short.
I'm a recent graduate in Nigeria awaiting service, while in school i was opportuned to start some online venture and i started earning. I trade crypto as well as forex. Long story short I currently earn atleast 3m monthly, but I always live in fear of stepping outside due to police harrasment and all. I don't own a car but I always get into their net and they extort me when they learn what I do.
That aside, I'm passionate about having another source or income on the side, to increase my earning plus saving capacity per time. Finding a job in nigeria is not an option because despite the stress, they won't pay well(that is if I get), starting a business is another daunting task due to the unenabling environment.
Now putting all these into consideration, I'm thinking of traveling out of the country, i can very much afford major countries, my main intention is to School (masters) work part time, while I still continue my trading and making my money since all I need to work is just my phone or laptop and I can work from anywhere in the world. Some people have adviced me to stay here and keep making the money I'm making, but they don't understand that with my job I can work from anywhere and still combine another job.
I need advice on these areas
1. Should I travel or just remain here and continue what I'm doing?
2. If I should travel, what country would you advice, I'm thinking USA, Germany, UK in that order
3. How possible is it for me to travel and buy a taxi and be a driver so I can earn more instead of 15$/hour job?
I just need a planned life I won't regret, plus Nigeria is suffocating.

What online business do you do, please I'd love to learn. I'm really interested, please could you teach me the online business. That extra income could go a long way. Thanks
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Dliquidmetal(m): 8:43am On Oct 02, 2020|
bruh,I'd advice you to stay here and continue making your money and about the extortion you can sort it by not keeping much money in your account cause me like this I dont keep more than 30k in my bank account I either have them saved in btc,shares,real estate,piggy banks cause when sars carry me and I tell them I trade forex I just tell them I'm just learning and dont even have anything I go come show them the little balance as proof
if you get money for Nigeria its bliss, enjoy your stay bruh.

“I’d like to think about what you have as a rich mans problem”
I’m not very experienced with traveling abroad as I have not had the opportunity to travel myself, but from what you wrote, I’d like to believe you’re still young and concerned about the future. My advice for you is to travel now that you have the opportunity (I.e can comfortably afford it). This country is not looking promising, leave and start building your life abroad. I also believe you’re not married yet, so it’s another opportunity to Give your unborn kids a greater future. Since you can do your job from any part of the world comfortably, leave now bro.
I’d also like you to consider Canada in your plans. I’ll let the more experienced travelers help you out in your decision.

Dliquidmetal:If he can make his money from anywhere, I don’t see the advantage of staying here, or am I missing something?
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by tensazangetsu20(m): 10:50am On Oct 02, 2020|
Germany, Netherlands, Finland infact most countries in Europe aside UK allow you to stay and work. But with what you make you can apply for an Estonian freelance visa. You just need to show proof Of funds. There is a lot of options for you men. You have the money.
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Gerrard59(m): 11:28am On Oct 02, 2020|
That's the more reason he should relocate, peace of mind. E no dey market because dem no buy am.
OP, you need to research more about your migration plans factoring in possibility of attaining citizenship. Your earnings are similar to what oil workers earn, you're obviously doing well. Aim for a masters program in a good school and the future is bright. A certain DavidHundeyin on Twitter mentioned Dubai as a place for freelancers but since you desire to pursue your education, I cannot recommend it esp as the UAE won't offer you post school work visa. Another one is Bermuda but problem of school comes up. Europe seems more like it.

Since you have the means move to US.Op please what online biz do u do that fetches u about 3m a month?
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Billions123: 11:38am On Oct 02, 2020|
tensazangetsu20:By stay and work, do you mean while schooling?
I don't really know anything about Estonia.
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Billions123: 11:43am On Oct 02, 2020|
Thank you chief.
Attaining citizenship is another reason for my intending migration as I'd love my kids (when I start having them) to have easy access to dual citizenship or be citizens of more sane clan atleast. UAE to my best of knowledge don't offer that.
I need somewhere I can double my hustle legitimately and not be questioned.

Billions123:bro how where you able to combine studying and extraneous hustling in school?
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Billions123: 11:45am On Oct 02, 2020|
For those asking about what I do, I stated it in the original post, I trade the crypto market and forex market. It's quite technical.
NB: please i don't teach, I don't have the time (for those emailing).
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by tensazangetsu20(m): 11:48am On Oct 02, 2020|
Billions123:Work after schooling.
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Billions123: 11:49am On Oct 02, 2020|
Heartlessbanker:It's all about what you want most (priority). I discovered the only thing I want in life and the only reason I'm in school was to find a way to make money. So when the opportunity presented itself, I placed hustle over academics. I'm naturally above average academically plus Nigerian schools only requires you to cram (la cram la pour). So all these made it easy for me. I started in early 300L, long story short, I overcame.
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Nobody: 11:59am On Oct 02, 2020|
Billions123:thank you very much.
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Gerrard59(m): 1:07pm On Oct 02, 2020|
Then aim at European countries esp those that aren't too popular - Austria, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal etc. Surprisingly, they have relatively easier, faster routes to citizenship and most importantly (to me) aren't popular. You earn close to 40M naira annually, brotha, you are not the type of person anti-immigration policies are aimed at.
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Dropcatch: 2:15pm On Oct 02, 2020|
You don't need to teach, just create time and give guidance on the best place one can learn, base on your experience and that's all.
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Ourown(m): 4:22pm On Oct 02, 2020|
Nobody can decide on if you should leave this country on not. Its your decision. But one thing I know is, if I am the one making 3m online monthly, I won't be in this country.
I'm a freelancer on Fiverr and I don't make anywhere near what you make monthly. I completed NYSC since March and no reasonable Job in sight, just imagine if I didn't know about Fiverr and co. What will I be doing now? Teaching in a school for 15k ?
I only wish I didn't make some bad investment choices when I was in school, I lost a lot of my Fiverr earnings then to bad investments, like forex and co. I didn't have enough knowledge on it then.
There is more to life than what this country can offer. Go out there, see the world, set things up for your generation to come.

Hello, bro. What's good? It's been awhile.
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Ourown(m): 6:08pm On Oct 02, 2020|
Bossman. Abeg this handle confuse me ooo. Remind me abeg

Lol I told you about my plans to learn video editing and you recommended some materials. Truth be told I don't know jack about adobe pro, camstassia studio, or after effects
Please how can a total beginner learn these things? I just don't know where to start from. Kindly help a brother.
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Billions123: 8:49am On Oct 03, 2020|
Every young adult at some point is bound to make bad investment decisions, that's the way we learn. Like they say, 'experience is the best teacher', i have had my own fair share of this experience.
Thank you for the advice, that's exactly what I'm going to do. Whatever step I'm taking today is for a better tomorrow for the generations to come.
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Billions123: 8:50am On Oct 03, 2020|
Try use study sites like Udemy or even youtube.
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Ourown(m): 8:59am On Oct 03, 2020|
Bro, I won't lie to you. If you take action and go on YouTube you'll learn everything.
Camtasia is so simple that I didn't even watch youtube before I started using it. Get started today bro.
I don't know if links are acceptable here. I can send you link to download cracked camtasia.

|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Vecto(m): 10:38am On Oct 03, 2020|
Alright gee. I'll get started ASAP.

Hoverboy27:Ignorance they say is bliss.
BTW, 3M is just an average, or should I say being modest. Better wake and stop wallowing in poverty of the mind.
Look up people like Bitcoin chief, Nyce Ayuk, Chris Ani, Gredo, Tim of buycoins, Patricia... these are some very successful crypto traders either day trading or peer to peer buy and sell and they make millions monthly. Like I said, Better wake up.
Go to nairalands ecurrency thread and do a survey on how much a successful trader makes monthly. Note the word "successful"
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Activist001(m): 8:17pm On Oct 03, 2020|
Hoverboy27:People make more than that from blogging in Nigeria. You no know be say you no know so stop wallowing in your ignorance.
NOT EVERY NIGERIAN WHO MAKES MONEY ONLINE IS A FRAUDSTER.
And for the OP, I would advice you to leave Nigeria as soon as you can. Try to learn some other digital skills like programming or something IT related that can get you a job abroad if Forex fails.
You know Forex is not really a way to make stable income.
Goodluck my guy, I wish you success.
|Re: Travel Advice Needed by Billions123: 8:51pm On Oct 03, 2020|
Activist001:Thank you chief.
I'm sure his jaw will drop if he learns how much news pages like instablog makes monthly without even having an office/physical location. I have friends running e-commerce droppshipping with international audience as target and earning not less than 5m monthly, i can go on citing other examples, i have people in different fields legitimatly killing it, you just have to find what works best for you. Problem with most Nigerians is that they don't look deep enough, they only believe in working under the sun to make peanuts.
