Here, we will show you how money scams operate, and how you can avoid falling prey to one. There’s a reason why money is not easy to earn, so always do your research and be wary if the returns are too good to be true.
Topic 14 STARTUP AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP
- Starting your own business can be an appealing concept for some, and terrifying for others. If you want to strike out on your own, especially after graduating, you have to weigh many considerations. Are you a multitasker? Do you favour stability? Can your passion be turned into a business? And most importantly, are you willing to risk it all? This topic will introduce you to the concept of entrepreneurship and whether it is right for you.
Topic 15 INCOME CREATION
- Earning money is not easy. However, you can make it (slightly) easier by leveraging on your resources. Leveraging simply means to multiply one’s efforts, like how a lever is used to move much heavier objects. By using your time, connections, and knowledge, you can leverage and multiply your income in an easier fashion. This topic will show you how.
