If you have ever been broke, you’ll testify that it is a sun-scotched experience. I remember a certain time when i didn’t have a dime. I had spent so much buying text books and settling pressing matters. I didn’t even have money to buy sachet water. It was terrible. I felt like robbing a bank.
As students, we need plenty plenty money; for food, clothes, text books, health, transport etc. The money we receive from our parents, is smaller than our needs. What then can you do to earn money in school?
You earn money when you solve a problem. The good news is that you can solve one. These tips will help you:
