Money is easy to make – Oshikoya
Oshikoya dismissed the school of thought which says it is difficult to make money. She maintained that money is abundant and making money is not hard.
According to her, everyone is created for a purpose and once you discover this purpose everything will fall in place.
Oshikoya said: “Everyone was created to solve a problem on the earth. Once anyone is able to identify and solve people’s problems, the money would come.
” People will make money because there is always something people need that can be given for a value.
”Also, many people find it difficult to make money because they try to work in areas they supposed not.
To get money, you must enjoy the work you do
”To get money, you must enjoy the work you are doing that gives value to people. If you are persistent and work hard in that service, you will make money.”
.Marking the World Savings Day and starting the Richer Kids Club, Mrs Oshikoya said the club will help eradicate poverty.
Children will be taught how to make money without being dishonest. How to manage money and how to let money grow for them.
”And how to use money to fix some of the problems in Nigeria, thereby creating more wealth. ‘So not to make the mistake people make at adult”. According to her, the club is designed for children between ages 6 and 15.
Students should save 10 per cent of their earnings
Mrs Omilola also advised the students to save at least 10 per cent of their earnings. ”Our financial education platform known as “the tech world of finance” would be speaking to children on this issue,” Oshikoya said.
