So you want to get out of debt and start making more, saving more, and investing more. But where do I go now? What should I do next?
Congratulations on acknowledging that you actually need to do something to make that happen for you. You are a step ahead of many others. It still blows my mind when people complain that they didn’t get rich overnight while they sat on their couch.
The most important advice I can give you from my personal journey to financial freedom is that you need to EDUCATE yourself. You need to start reading books or listening to audiobooks, watching YouTube videos, reading blogs and forums and taking courses. If you’re not willing to educate yourself about business and money none of anything I share will be enough to help you.
Do not blindly listen to any person advising you what to do or how to do it. Educate yourself and take control of your destiny. I try listening to two audiobooks a week for I get smarter. I watch YouTube videos about making money and investing every day. I take courses all the time and live on forums and Facebook groups to ask questions and learn new things every day.
I’d like to challenge you to spend 30 minutes every day for the next 5 days to start educating yourself about business, making money online, and investing. I’ll help you get started by sharing some links to great resources online to start educating yourself.

I just shared 15 resources to kickstart your exploration and education. If you want to become financially free YOU will need to get to work, educate yourself, explore ideas, and take action. I can only share what I know and I can’t spoon-feed everything.
Google should become your best friend. Start searching ‘how to make money’, ‘how to invest’, ‘power of compounding’, ‘how to read financial statements’….
You will not become an expert by reading but you will learn very important concepts and it will open your mind to a new world of possibilities. As you learn and explore suddenly you will begin seeing patterns and things will begin to fall into place.
Never stop learning! Your education has been and will always be your best investment.
Next week I will share everything some friends and I learned and experienced in the last 6 weeks exploring ways to monetize WhatsApp Status and how some of us are already generating $100 a day.
