When I get into engineering, I had nothing, I borrow a Laptop from my brother and the university provided me the Internet. My father gives me $7 for a week which wasn’t enough for me. The Internet and the laptop was the only resource I have.

As Mark Cuban once said;

All you need is a laptop or a PC and an Internet connection and you can pretty much do almost anything and create almost any type of company.

I was making money for the first time

I was a poor guy that has to manage everything, applied for jobs but didn’t selected for anyone. I did some digging online for finding any way to make money. YouTube was the very first thing I was interested but poverty hit me hard, I had no phone to record videos. Many of my friends have a good smartphone and that was the Light at the end of the tunnel.

After some time I was making money from YouTube and YouTube money supported me to buy a domain and hosting for starting blogging.

I have a personality that if I want to set a goal, I give it my 100%, this is why my Educational credentials were effected by starting a side hustle online.

This story could also be title as “A college student from 4.00 GPA to 2.60”

Before I started my online hustle, I was a Polio worker in my district. We don’t have cases but just for protection purposes, there was a polio vaccination campaign. I will write about it in the future if I find something to correlate it. For that side hustle, I was to give 8 hours a week to it. They pay me $8 per week but that was something I will always proud of.

The money I made online was a bit easy compared to other forms of jobs, I have to give three to four hours to my online hustle and at the end, I made $20 to $50 a day. Making that much amount of money in a developing country is way higher…
