The major issue is that my mother keep emphasizing on getting a job and doesn't for once regard this business as anything..
I have try to make her see reasons but she just choose to remain adamant,, how many of this so called jobs can pay me what this business is paying me? how can l convince my mother that l want to expand my business and marry without so much emphasis on job here and there l am tired abeg...

She’s not interested in whatever you make from the POS

She just wants to be a proud mom who’s daughter graduated and got a white collar job than having graduate daughter who’s doing POS with random people that hasn’t been to the four walls of a university

To her she wasted money training you in school


She for kuku use the money start POS for you from day one

That’s how she’s reasoning it

Country hard my sister it’s even better you chose to be self employed than doing olosho

Just pray to have an understanding boyfriend that would turn you to a wife then you leave and enlarge your business just like you said

Tell her you just want to be a boss of yourself, what you are doing can be categorized as a small scale business under entrepreneurship. Tell her very soon you'll expand and be employing people to manage some part

Yes it's not a job but a small venture but if strategiclly situated and managed you can explore and invest into other more sustainable ventures.
POS venture will phaseout with time just like phonebooth/phone centers.

What makes you conclude that OP is a female? Just like peeps reference to me as bro...lolz...SMH
victooman:
l am a man bro,, that reason u posted their sound archaic, l should ditch a 6k business a day for probably 70k job
to look good to her friends,,, ?? 😒
So many peeps gender-base some ventures or professions erroneously.
victooman:
Thank u,, expanding wont be a problem once the capital is there
Keep the grind and remain financially intelligent.
victooman:
bro u wont blame her,, that was the ldeal orientation of every African mom, a business l started with 120k , now over 800k in less than 2yrs despite all the expenses l have been making and sge think office job is better,, l will invest in other business once l hit the desire capital thank u for ur input.
@OP you seem to need some business and money management orientation for you to think you need capital to expand....having multiple income means as you are now should be easier since you already have a paying pos business.

I posted what your mom might be reasoning as an African woman

That wasn’t my own reasoning knowing how hard the country is

And you call it archaic

Since my reasoning is archaic and you know it all why them did you bring it up on a public forum

Na that POS go kaput you since you no get sense

You probably graduated with a pass or third class hence you couldn’t secure a job

Go and refund your mom her money she wasted on your education

it seems you're more wiser than your mom... quit your business and go work as a slave for someone else working for peanuts?? with the time you have, you can even venture into other things, not you putting on a slave suit waking up and eating when a particular person says so... smh... it's true, age doesn't equal wisdom...

think outside the box, see of other side things you can do as well... in your free time, you can also learn some skills you can monetize... if you're earning that much as you said, you are better of than most graduates, most especially in this country... your mom is ashamed of your business because to her pos business sounds like it's for the less privileged... smh... she feels putting on a white suit and working as a slave is better in order to impress people who don't care about you or her...

The massage she is trying to pass is that you shouldn't settle or get relaxed with that POS stuff.

Yes the fund you are getting from it might be okay at the moment but the biz isn't sustainable as govt policy can drag it to extinction.

You might need to start targeting another biz or profession to run concurrently.

So long as it's paying your bills stick with it but make sure that you start early to invest your profits in good assets and possible expansion of the business to include other services.

All it takes is just one government policy or a new innovation in the tech world to knock off POS business, bear in mind that there was a time when people were making a lot of money from business call centres and cybercafes therefore you need to be pro active and think of the future

Re: Help Me, My Mother Does Not Think Pos Is A Job. by Nonexisting: 4:48pm On Sep 22, 2023
The answer to the issue is simple. Double your hustle and prove her wrong. My father once cried that I wasn't able to secure a job after training me in school. My elder brother was not doing so well in business too. When I told him I wanted to start a building contractor firm, he advised that I kept searching for good job that one day God would bless me. Today, he is happy I didn't listen to his advice. Prove them wrong brother and see them sing a new song. You see that your POS business, package am well and diversify as well. If not that I know myself well, I would be thinking I did money ritual in my dreams but whenever I remember the degree of my hustle, I get rest of mind. This life is not too hard, just stay your lane and hustle without minding where your mates currently are or what people are saying. The only time you unlock your ears is when someone is talking business. Cheers brother.

Bro please educate me on how to begin this POS thing, what capital do I need to kick-start it and is it advisable to begin it with someone else? Because I already have a job and want to invest in POS as a side hustle, but wont be able to do it myself because of time.

Please advise me on it.

Thank you.

I think you need to seat her down and let her know what you are trying to explain to her

And assure her that your proceed can cater for you and your family wjwk you marry

That's why you are planning on expanding your business


That work is not easy to come by and what you are getting is equivalent to those working amd you still have your freedom

Dude to me, pos business isn't business! Your mom is right.

Open another reasonable business while still doing your pos business. POS business is almost literally everywhere else nobody considers as a business. Dude, open other businesses

Pos is a business bro, l tend to differ with you, it is littered everywhere and so are people too, when you are dealing with commodity that is in demand by everyone at anytime you will make money irrespective of the competition...

If she doesn't think that it's a real job, then she should go and get a real job.

I hate it when parents like stressing their children over something they can't do themselves.
