Why do Youths make money?
Hello people, happy Monday and welcome to the 2nd episode of Making Money Staying Wealthy- Why do we make money. For this week, I decided to do a little interview, so I got talking with Folake, a 300 level Physiotherapy student, to find out how and why she made money. We had quite an interesting short chat and I would love you to read and contribute:
Kene – Hi Folake, wadup? Are you excited to be here?
Folake -I’m fine o, Kene. Well, I feel like I’m making a confession, but yeah, I would like to hear people dispute me.
Kene (laughs) – You’re ready to tackle any opponent, I like that spirit. So let’s get down to the task at hand. Shall we?
Folake (gesticulates with hands) – Oya, I’m game.
Kene – Folake, how do you make your cash? Are you into business?
Folake – I do small small business, but the turnover is still very little. I get capital, however from my paren (fakes French accent).
Kene – You get money from your parents? How?
Folake – Well, I ask them for money, how else? (pauses, then coughs) I add a little jara to the amount sha, just to get at least profit and interest on the money. It is called The Principle of gbaaing. It involves collecting extra cash from mumsi and popsi to make ends meet.
Kene (widens eyes)- Profit and interest, huh? True business woman. So, what do you use the profit and interest for?
Folake -Ha, Kene! My parents must not see this interview o! Well, profit for investment into my business and the interest for pleasure.
Kene – I like this. Kindly define pleasure?
Folake – Cooperate wear for this our Medilag, shoes, bags, hairstyles, food etc.
Kene (opens mouth) – So this is what you do? How much exactly is the profit and interest added to the original school expense?
Folake – Well, it depends on the needs for the semester. Too many buy buy, we add X10. Small buy buy, X5.
Kene – Wow! Does the cash last for the entire semester?
Folake (laughs) – You know how money is na, even when you try to save, it just vanishes.
Kene – I see! So how do you think your parent provide you with capital, profit and interest when money vanishes?
Folake (gets angry and stands up) – No o, Kene, don’t even start! Like you don’t do the same too (hisses). I am not doing anything wrong, let anyone come and ask me, I am not doing wrong. I am collecting my parents money for them, it’s my entitlement. I am their child! Tell me, is it wrong (hisses again and leaves).
Good point raised by an angry Folake. Our parents money is our own entitlement, we can collect capital, profit and interest from it. Is it wrong? What is your opinion?
