Money is important for growth and development. But, that is not the next point of action after your secondary school education.
That can only be necessary for a person who do not wish to be formally educated.
It is meant to be after one’s tertiary education as a student that the urge of making money should be in you.
This is one of the reason most young people in the society today are into fraud, because they haven’t built a career for themselves, which can serve as a means of livelihood.
Instead of chasing money at after secondary school, do this and money will come along with them.
