My name is Nuesiri
John and this is my success story
After graduating with a second class, lower division, i was not happy at all. Even to tell my parents seem very difficult, but i finally did, and they didn't kill me.
I started the hustle quickly, after service i left my comfort zone(parents house)...straight to Lagos the land of opportunities.
I remember very well, my first earning was 10,000 Naira (funny enough, i was paid the salary like i was selling something to the man...right on the road, he just counted 10k and said this was my pay for the previous month).
I took the money with joy, even though i knew i could have earned much more while at home with my parents.
It continued like that for several months, until i got another job with a big company, but through the back doors (Note: Back door pay are very crazy, almost nothing to show for it).
This company is big, no doubt...but as a graduate, i was told i would be paid 30k for a month with probation, then after six months if i perform fine, the pay will be raised.
That was how i became very serious with work, i did the job like i was paid heavily, even used my credit to call colleagues and supervisors, etc... After the awaited six months, my pay only increased with an additional 15k....so, literally, i earned 45,000 per month.
I didn't stop there, i kept faith and hope alive, i bought guardian newspaper every Tuesday, applied for any kind of job i saw (after-all, it was free applying electronically).
After about 2 years and 7months, i was still earning the same salary, i wanted to leave, but i decided to stay.
Then my first real breakthrough came, i applied for a job i knew i wasn't qualified to even apply for, i remember it was an advert from guardian newspaper.
We wrote exams, did interview. Funnily, the pay per month was 5 times my salary, but the negative thing there was the job was a short one, three months job.
I had to take the risk, because i made the calculations...the pay was equivalent to a year salary of my then present job.
I started this new job, do you know this job only lasted for a month? I was paid my salary, and i had to go and hide myself...because friends were already celeberating my success story.
To cut the long story short, from that first break through one month job, i got another job, this one is bigger, better and it's good.
N.B: Never under estimate your little beginning....and always have a positive mind set.
