Welcome to InfoLab, a dedicated channel for self-improvement. If you're new here, join the family and read your way to success everyday.

This article is about what it really takes to move forward from being broke and how to really make money when you have none. This is fairly popular among the young members of our society who have entrepreneurial desires but have no access to money in order to leverage it for growth. Guess what fam, you've got to work. Because you don't have money to exchange for goods and services, you have to rely on the only thing you have available time. The only way you make money when you don't have money is to exchange your time for it. The rules apply if you’re a labourer or you’re a professional programmer.

There are three ways you can earn money when you don't have investments; one, get a job; two, build a business; three, offer your services in exchange for money. The more valuable your skillset is, the higher the pay you can ask in exchange for your time. Now it all depends on what you plan to do with that money; if you need quick cash, services for money is your best option. Regardless of how many undergraduate or postgraduate degrees you have lying dormant in your closet, nobody is beneath manual labour. That's your starting point.

Need cash? Sell ice water or any other petty consumables that don’t require big capital. Need money to support yourself? There's this amazing concept out there that millennials have struggled to grasp while fixating on social media, where you go into a building, you do what some people tell you to do and then you go home. it's as easy as that and once every four weeks they give you money. This innovative strategy is called getting a job. Not necessarily a job in a government institution or a big company, but any decent job that gets you paid even if it’s way below your qualification. Don’t be one of those people whose life gets destroyed by a certificate, it’s not worth it.

Why does everyone want money without putting in the work? For some reason, everybody is a starving entrepreneur these days. Everyone is working on their miracle project or becoming a social media influencer on the dime of their parents. Here's an important take bit of information; unless you're getting paid, you're just playing. Pretend the last option is starting a business. Guess what? Most businesses require you to work twice as much as you would in a normal job without being paid for the first two or three years, in which every pesewa you make should be reinvested into the company if you want to have the slightest chance of success.

So how do you start a business without money? When you're young early in the day, you go to school. Once you leave school, you go to work, find a part-time job or pay for a service gig in order to support yourself then during the night, you work on your business. Oh! you don't like what you hear? That's because life has probably been easy for you. So far, you only had to struggle with one of those things and most of your problems have been taken care of by other people. Starting a business is a very difficult and demanding process, that's why 9 out of 10 businesses fail because people don't have what it takes and the dedication to make it happen.
