I started working at the age of 19. Before that, when I was much younger (ten year old), I helped my grandfather with his textile business and my dad with his transport business. Working with these entrepreneurs instilled the quality of entrepreneurship within me.
Coming back to my work……
I started off as an employee at a bank in India. Moved to Dubai and worked at a bank here. Like many of us feel, the salary was never enough. I believe it’s the basic human thinking. When you move to the next level of life, you always look to move to the next level. You know what I mean!
Initially, I requested my managers to raise my salary. Well, that did not happen. I eventually realized that requesting for a raise would not solve.
What else should I do?
I realized that raising your income is not your employer’s priority. It’s YOURS!
So, I set out to see how I could increase my income!
I soon realised that there is basically one way to increase your income:
Prudent investing will change your life and provide you the financial independence that you always desire.
There are various avenues you can invest:
- real estate
- fixed deposit
- stock market
- mutual funds
- pension schemes
- fixed income
- and many more.
In addition to ‘investing’, Budgeting, Saving will help you indirectly increase your disposable income.
