In Nigeria today, lots of people are totally dependent on their monthly salary to survive and also cater for their families. No matter where you work and how much salary you earn per month, if you focus solely on that money to take care of your needs and that of your family after a long period of time, you will have no savings to fall back to when the need arises that is why setting up a side business that will bring in extra income is necessary.
Everybody wants to have money so they can be comfortable and be able to get the best things in life which includes building a house, buying a car, changing their wardrobe, send their kids to the best school etc. but this cannot be possible if you only depend on your monthly salary to meet your needs.
Having a full time job in Nigeria is not easy as you have to wake up early, rush out of the house so you can beat traffic to get to work and after spending 9 to 10 hours at work when you get back home you are so tired that you don?t have time to do anything for yourself not to talk of having time for your family and at the end of the month you receive a salary that may not be able to meet your needs. If you can set out time even if it?s one hour a day to focus on a side business, you can grow that business to a point where you eventually will have to quit your job to become an entrepreneur.
There is no full time job that is permanent, if you are lucky enough to get a full time job be it in the public or private sector, you will have to retire one day either after you have served 35 years or when you turn 60 you will have to leave the job (retire) so if you don?t have a side business to fall back to you will suffer.
