Everytime I come online I must surely meet a couple of guys talk about this. I'm not excluded myself. 

You can believe what ever they say about it but have you ever wondered why they are telling you our it. If it is their secret to wealth why would they want you to know about it and seem like they are forcing you to.

It's because humans are so kind and want everyone to have financial freedom 

That's Not it Read my Answer to that

The thing is that humans are not so nice but we have to depend on eachother on the ladder of like. It's applicable anywhere and also online.

Consider this scenario: 

If I discover crude oil on my land today, my initial inclination might be to keep it a secret. However, I'll remain in poverty unless I share this discovery with the right group. It's the act of publicity that can turn this newfound resource into wealth.

This principle extends to the online sphere. People share their money-making secrets for various reasons, and your interest in online success makes you an appealing audience. It's a world where sharing knowledge is part of the allure, and being in the know is your ticket to the journey.

It's crucial to understand that stories of overnight success online are rare exceptions. True achievement in the digital realm requires unwavering dedication, continuous effort, and the ability to learn from failures. Anything else I  simply call it a stroke of luck.

Myth vs. Reality: Know to Know 

Myth 1: 

Passive Income Requires No Effort

I've always come across the statement of "making money while you sleep", you also have come across this and also wants this and I'm wondering why you are reading this post "Elon Musk" 


Passive income streams, such as affiliate marketing or rental income, often demand substantial upfront work and ongoing management.

What can I say about the statement of "making money while you sleep"; You can sleep because it's okay to sleep but do not sleep.

While it is possible to earn passive income through affiliate marketing, or other means online, it usually involves creating content, building an audience, and continuously promoting products or services. 

This requires effort in creating valuable content, driving traffic, and maintaining value. These activities require time, effort, and sometimes additional expenses (like ads you see; know you know those people are also working hard).

It is important to note that while passive income can provide financial benefits and flexibility, it typically requires effort and active involvement to set up and maintain the income streams.

Myth 2: 

Dropshipping Guarantees Quick Wealth


While dropshipping can be profitable, success requires careful planning and persistence. Quick riches are the exception, not the rule.

While dropshipping can be lucrative, it's far from a guaranteed path to wealth. According to Oberlo, the average e-commerce store takes about 6-12 months to become profitable.

Yes you can choose this part but be ready for work. You don't have to have many followers to Dropship for as long as I know because I have tried to wear the hat of a DropShipper. One thing I can say to it that you have to take it as a business and debunk the idea of getting rich overnight.

While dropshipping can be lucrative, it's far from a guaranteed path to wealth. According to Oberlo ➚, the average e-commerce store takes about 6-12 months to become profitable.

There are also exceptional cases as long as you are good and have a keen eyes for opportunities and resources.

Myth 3:

 Freelancing Is Inconsistent

I have heard alot of people say freelancing is not an option for making money online. Trust me this is because they don't want to work or they don't have the skills and want short cuts. 


Freelancing can provide a steady income. Millions of freelancers worldwide collectively earned $1.2 trillion in 2020, highlighting its reliability.

You have to have something to bring to the table, build your name and connect with good platforms

Freelancing can be a stable source of income. A survey by Upwork and Freelancers Union reported that 59 million Americans freelanced in 2020, collectively earning $1.2 trillion.

In Nigeria, many individuals and professionals engage in freelancing across various industries such as writing, graphic design, web development, digital marketing, and more. Freelancers often find work through online platforms and can earn income both locally and internationally.

Myth 4: 

Blogging Equals Instant Success

This is what Everyone thinks even I before I wear the hat of being called a blogger. Everyone thinks once you start blogging you become Jeff Bezos.

Many aspiring bloggers caught up with that believe that once they launch a blog, they will quickly achieve fame, fortune, and a massive following. Just dey play.

While it's true that some bloggers have reached incredible heights, such success is far from guaranteed and often takes time, effort, and dedication.


I not here to discourage, other than to debunk that idea and keep you motivated.

Blogging is a long-term game. Earnings usually start small, with bloggers reporting $0.01 to $0.10 per page view.

Building a profitable blog takes time. On average, bloggers report making around $0.01 to $0.10 per page view, according to FirstSiteGuide ➚. It can take months or even years to gain substantial traffic.

Blogging involves consistently producing high-quality content, engaging with readers, and optimizing your website for search engines. It's rare for a new blog to attract thousands of readers overnight.

Do you know your Blog can be the Rare? Yes if you work and do not overlook the basics.

Seriously from my blogging experience. This art will frustrate you if you are all in for the money. You might even join the league of those who uses misuse blogs. 

There are over 600 million blogs on the internet. The internet is home to a staggering 1.9 billion websites worldwide. Of those, 600 million are blogs. Don't get Discouraged most of these blogs aren't okay as they are. Bring your innovation and style. Work hard even if you don't make to be too of it all (Toppers are not sleeping too) Have your share in it. All the best!

Myth 5: 

Online Surveys Replace Full-Time Jobs

At a very young age I got exposed to the online media and Survey was one of the first medium I ventured into. With the likes of Ysense and others.


While online surveys offer easy money, they're not a reliable income source. Survey Junkie reports that the average payout for a 20-minute survey is just $1 to $3.

Online surveys offer pocket money, not a sustainable income. The average payout for a 20-minute survey is merely $1 to $3 and that the cost of this you are sharing big data. Well see it like you are helping us get data. I also love surveys and I create polls on my community to know the mind of people, create a trend fact and other reasons.

Still, Trying very hard with surveys you would see that it takes you no where. Never see it as a main income stream. You are not lazy and there are other things you can do. And Do you know  most of these online survey sites don't pay out. You can share your experience.

Myth 6: 

Stock Trading, Forex and Crypto Is a Foolproof Strategy

Some people believe that engaging in stock trading, forex (foreign exchange), or cryptocurrency investments is a foolproof strategy for guaranteed financial success.

Well I can say I've gained in someways. These are great to venture into if you know about it.  From what I know and what I've experienced, you cannot sleep in this venture.


All three of these investment avenues involve a level of risk that can result in substantial losses. 

According to a study by the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF), up to 89% of retail traders in forex and CFDs (Contracts for Difference) lose money.

Stock trading carries inherent risks. While the S&P 500 returned 18.4% in 2020, many individual investors struggle to beat the market.

Stock markets, forex, and cryptocurrencies are known for their volatility. Prices can fluctuate dramatically in a short period, making them inherently risky.

Long-term success in these markets often requires a deep understanding of financial instruments, technical analysis, and a disciplined approach. Most retail investors struggle to consistently beat the market.

Succeeding in stock trading, forex, or crypto demands a substantial investment in financial education. It's not a quick and easy path to wealth.

Myth 7: 

YouTube Equals Instant Fame and Fortune

Many believe that starting a YouTube channel guarantees instant fame and fortune


According to YouTube's own statistics, over 500 hours of video are uploaded to the platform every minute. This saturation makes it extremely competitive to stand out and gain a significant following. You have a lot to do to have your own share of that space.

Success on YouTube is not just about uploading videos; it's about creating high-quality content consistently. Building a loyal audience requires a commitment to delivering valuable, engaging, and well-produced videos over an extended period.

YouTube success is elusive. The average YouTuber needs to upload 41 videos to reach 1,000 subscribers.

On YouTube, there is a monetization challenge which requires meeting specific criteria, such as having at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours in the past 12 months. Even then, ad revenue alone may not provide significant income.

Most successful YouTubers diversify their income streams. They often rely on sponsorships, merchandise sales, affiliate marketing, and crowdfunding from platforms like Patreon. 

These additional revenue sources require effort and time to establish check out those Toppers and see when their account has been live on YouTube you would realize their hard work.

Myth 8: 

Affiliate Marketing Guarantees Quick Wealth

Many believe affiliate marketing is a quick path to wealth


  Affiliate marketing isn't a shortcut to riches. It demands time, effort, and strategy.

 Success requires building an audience, creating valuable content, choosing the right products, and maintaining trust with your audience. 

Income can be unpredictable, competition is fierce, and compliance with regulations is essential. Affiliate marketing is a long-term endeavor, not a quick win.

Affiliate marketing success takes time. According to a survey by FinancesOnline ➚, 15% of affiliate marketers needed 3-6 months to see significant results.

Myth 9:

 Online Courses Guarantee Success


Online courses can be valuable, but they don't guarantee success. The completion rate for massive open online courses (MOOCs) is just 5% on average (eLearning Industry).

While creating online courses can be a promising endeavor, success depends on factors like course quality, marketing, and addressing learners' needs. Course creators must work diligently to achieve success, and there are no guarantees.

Myth 10:

 Online Gambling Can Be Profitable

There are now lots of online gambling and betting websites, While it's true that some individuals have profited from online gambling, it's essential to approach this statement with caution and consider the broader implications.


 Online gambling is inherently risky. Most players lose more money than they win over time. The odds are typically stacked against the player, and casinos and gambling platforms are designed to generate profits for their operators.

Gambling can be highly addictive, leading to significant financial and personal problems for many individuals. The potential for addiction and its associated consequences should not be underestimated.

Studies estimate that between 0.1% and 5% of adults may experience gambling-related problems, such as addiction.

The house always has the edge in online gambling.

Casinos and gambling sites incorporate a house edge into their games, ensuring that they maintain a profit over time. This means that even if players win occasionally, the house consistently earns money.

Statista➚ reports that the global online gambling market was valued at $66.7 billion in 2020, with the odds favoring casinos.

The idea that online gambling can be consistently profitable is a misconception that can lead to financial and personal harm for many people. Responsible gambling practices and awareness of the risks are crucial.

Making money online is an exciting endeavor, but it's vital to approach it with eyes wide open. The intention here is not to discourage, but to empower you with the knowledge needed to navigate the complexities of the digital landscape. 

Online success is possible, but it often requires effort, resilience, and a realistic perspective. By separating myth from reality, you can embark on your digital journey with a clear understanding of what it truly entails, ultimately increasing your chances of achieving your online income goals.

 Young Dream of Alleviating Financial Strain:

While growing up (I'm still growing) , as a normal young mind, a GenZ, I also harbor dreams of alleviating financial strain.

The dreams of young individuals seeking to alleviate financial strain are often intertwined with the allure of making money online.

 The digital landscape promises opportunities for financial independence and prosperity, making it an appealing avenue for those with ambitious aspirations. 

Many teenagers are drawn to the prospect of making money online to provide for their families or secure their future. 

Most have ventured in different Legit landscapes while some are intertwined in the dark side and others are victims both positively or harmed online in a way or the other.

Get-Rich-Quick Fantasies:

This is me speaking as a young dreamer. I've been known to be a cyber monster but I'm not doing Yahoo or involving myself in Get Rich Quick Schemes.

In their eagerness to escape financial strain, some young individuals become susceptible to get-rich-quick schemes that promise substantial returns with minimal effort. These schemes often turn out to be fraudulent, causing financial loss and disappointment.

I've been there took me months before I realized it and alot damage has been done, I'd suffered significant financial setbacks and  I almost lost hope in ever making money again. 

That's why I stress that every young dreamer needs to shake off this idea. It's crucial to understand that there's real value in hard-earned money, but and sometimes, it's not about working hard; it's about working smart. Either ways you should know what you are doing. Set a long term ambition.

Don't get lured by the illusion of making quick and easy money online. Instead, take the time to discover your talents and passions. There are countless career paths and specializations out there, and each of us has something unique to offer the world.

I have always encounter online narratives of overnight success stories, where individuals seemingly amass wealth in a short span. 

I didn't get the purpose of life and thought it's all about making money. I want to be on Forbes, have that comfortable life without stress. 

This is want most young dreamer want and we later find ourselves not discovering our purpose and little things that feed our soul with happiness and a worth to our existence. We're not all destined for the same path.

While Gen Z is growing up in the digital age, it's essential to learn from the experiences of Millennials who've been through it all. It took me a while to break free from this mindset, which I dare to call a "syndrome." 

The temptation of quick wealth can make us forget the importance of hard work, dedication, and having realistic expectations. So, as a young dreamer, remember to snap out of the illusion and focus on a more balanced and fulfilling journey to success.

'Snap out of the genjustu'

Investment Illusions:

Young dreamers looking to build wealth and security may invest in ventures that promise high returns. However, unscrupulous investment opportunities can lead to financial ruin. Ponzi schemes, cryptocurrency scams, and fraudulent investment advisors are all lurking dangers

When I set out to escape financial burdens as a young individual,  I explored opportunities in the realm of online investments. 

My misconception lies in assuming that all online investments are a surefire path to substantial profits with minimal risk. Unfortunately, this assumption led to my downfall. 

I unwittingly become ensnared in fraudulent schemes that dangle the tantalizing promise of effortless wealth but ultimately deliver nothing but financial loss. Behind these finally loss is also emotional and mental havoc. 🥹

Aspiring to alleviate financial strain, some young individuals explore online investment opportunities. However, the misconception lies in believing that all online investments guarantee substantial returns without risk. They may fall victim to fraudulent schemes that promise easy profits but deliver financial loss. 

It's crucial for young dreamers to recognize that not all investment opportunities are created equal.

While there are legitimate and potentially profitable avenues for growing wealth online, there are also predators waiting to exploit the uninformed. 

To protect themselves, young investors should approach online investments with caution, conduct thorough research, seek advice from trusted sources, and understand that genuine investment success requires diligence and informed decision-making.

According to the report by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) revealed that in 2020, people aged 20-29 reported losing more money to fraud than any other age group. 

In the world of investments, shortcuts to riches are rare, and the road to financial security often involves navigating a landscape filled with risks and uncertainties. 

By arming yourself with knowledge and a discerning eye, as a young dreamer, you can make informed choices that lead to genuine financial growth, rather than falling victim to the mirage of online investment illusions. You no wise 🦉 You go wise.

Digital Marketing Myths:

The digital world is replete with misconceptions about the ease of success in fields like affiliate marketing, dropshipping, and e-commerce. 

Adults and Young minds alike assume that launching an online business requires minimal effort and can quickly lead to significant income. This misconception often disregards the complexities and competitive nature of online entrepreneurship.

The misconception begins with the belief that setting up an online business is a straightforward endeavor, accessible to anyone with a computer and an internet connection. Y'all I'm sick  of that sentiment.

 In truth, while the barriers to entry have lowered, building a thriving online enterprise demands much more than a mere online presence. It involves meticulous planning, a deep understanding of market dynamics, and a robust strategy to stand out amidst the digital crowd. 

To avoid falling prey to the illusion of instant online wealth, young minds must approach their entrepreneurial pursuits with a realistic mindset.

They should be prepared to invest time, effort, and resources into their ventures, understanding that genuine success is built on a solid foundation of hard work, innovation, and unwavering commitment. 

By dispelling these misconceptions, young entrepreneurs can embark on their digital journeys well-equipped for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

Social Media / Influencer Glamour :

In the era of social media and influencer culture, it's easy to fall under the spell of a seductive illusion.

This illusion suggests that becoming an online influencer is a fast track to fame and fortune. For many young individuals, the allure of building an online presence can be irresistible. 

However, beneath the surface of glamorous Instagram feeds and YouTube stardom lies a stark reality—a reality often overlooked by those aspiring to become influencers.

The misconception begins with the belief that all it takes to become an influencer is a smartphone, a camera, and a charismatic personality. 

While these are undoubtedly valuable assets, they are just the tip of the iceberg. Building a meaningful online presence and achieving genuine influence demand much more. Not getting it has made alot do foolish things I'm not talking about this 🤗 I'm in too.

I think mine is so visible 😅. My friends had to tag me the Social media profound user. I happen to have account on almost every social media platform. But Trust me it's not for the Money. I didn't even know social media is being illlusionized to be a money making machine. I first did it for meme. 😏 Remember David Savage memes ( a pic of Michael Jordan crying) 🤫 Keep my secret I'm not the only David.

Lets get back to debunking...

Social Media is very vast and I won't tell you to debunk the idea of making money with social media.

I mean there are different ways to utilize social media. Even Elon Musk and those other big whales uses Social Media. 

You see those top influencers now they started long ago you too start now and learn from them. It's rare to get rich overnight. But you would still make it with time and hardwork.

You have to understand the challenges, consistency, and time required to achieve success in this realm.

 Different ways work of each person, it's not just necessary you become an influencer.

It is  crucial to recognize that not everyone's journey in the realm of social media needs to revolve around influencing. 

Social media offers a vast landscape of opportunities beyond the pursuit of online fame. 

It's essential to recognize that each individual's journey on social media is unique. Your path may not align with influencer aspirations, and that's perfectly acceptable. 

Social media can be a powerful tool for personal and professional growth, whether you aim to educate, inspire, connect, or create or promote. 

The key is to identify your goals, stay authentic to yourself, and make the most of the opportunities this digital landscape offers.

Here are different ways to harness the power of social media

To bridge the gap between dreams of financial independence and the reality of making money online, it's vital for us to cultivate a sense of discernment and awareness. 

We should approach online opportunities with caution, seek reputable sources of information, invest in education and skill development, and recognize that genuine success often involves hard work and resilience.

Mental Battle

 In the quest for financial success, anyone can become targets of psychological manipulation. Scammers and fraudsters exploit  hopes and fears, convincing anyone to part with their hard-earned money.

A lack of financial literacy can leave young individuals vulnerable to financial mismanagement, including excessive debt, impulsive spending, and poor investment decisions. Without proper education,  dreams can turn into financial nightmares.

The pressure to achieve financial success rapidly can lead to hasty decisions and risky investments. This impatience can result in financial losses and setbacks that hinder progress.

Falling victim to financial schemes and exploitation can take an emotional toll on young dreamers. It can shatter their confidence, lead to stress and anxiety, and create feelings of betrayal and embarrassment.

In light of these risks, it's crucial to invest in financial education, conduct thorough research, seek advice from trusted sources, and be wary of opportunities that appear too good to be true. 

Additionally,  develop resilience to withstand setbacks and maintain a strong support system to navigate the challenges you may encounter on your journey.

The Grim Reality of Scams:

Online scams represent a harsh and pervasive reality. Teenagers, due to their limited life experience, are prime targets. The allure of effortless riches often blinds them to the red flags of a scam. They invest their time, energy, and sometimes hard-earned money into ventures that turn out to be fraudulent, leaving them not only disheartened but also financially depleted.

 The Art of Discernment: Choosing the Right Path:

In a world where countless online opportunities beckon, it's paramount to discern between genuine paths to financial success and deceptive schemes.

The digital realm, while teeming with potential, also harbors numerous pitfalls. 

This is where the art of discernment comes into play—choosing the right path among the multitude of online avenues for earning money.

Not all online opportunities are scams. Legitimate platforms and methods do exist, but they require meticulous research to uncover. 

Teenagers and aspiring entrepreneurs should invest significant time in discerning reliable options. This process entails scrutinizing reviews, seeking guidance from trustworthy sources, and verifying the legitimacy of potential opportunities.

There are legitimate ways to make money online. And all I've mentioned earlier apart from the dark hat side are all legitimate ways to make money online.

Legitimate Ways to Earn Online

Legitimate freelancing platforms connect skilled individuals with clients seeking specific services. Success in freelancing hinges on delivering quality work and building a solid reputation.


Launching an e-commerce store allows entrepreneurs to sell products or services to a global audience. 

Platforms like Shopify ➚ and WooCommerce ➚ provide the infrastructure for creating online storefronts. While e-commerce can be lucrative, it requires diligent planning, marketing, and customer service.

The e-commerce industry, has experienced rapid growth, with global online retail sales reaching $4.28 trillion in 2020 (Statista).

Still the same lots of scam reported are from this industry. From the fake sellers in Facebook Marketplace to bad vendors on the likes of Jumia, Amazon, Alibaba, and reported scams from fake e-commerce websites.

Online Education:

 Many people seek knowledge and skills online. Creating and selling online courses in areas where you excel can be a profitable venture. E-learning platforms offer tools to design, host, and market your courses.

Affiliate Marketing:

By promoting products or services and earning a commission on sales, affiliate marketing offers a legitimate path to online income. However, success requires understanding your audience, selecting appropriate products, and ethical marketing practices.

Investment and Trading:

Engaging in legitimate investment opportunities, such as stocks, bonds, or real estate, can yield financial gains over time. However, it's crucial to research and understand the risks before diving in. Beware of fraudulent investment schemes.

 Sharing your expertise through online consulting or coaching sessions can provide a steady income stream. Establishing your credibility and marketing your services are essential steps.

Remote Employment:

Many reputable companies offer remote job opportunities. Job boards and career websites list positions across industries, allowing individuals to work from home while being employed by established organizations.

The Perils of Deception:

While legitimate opportunities abound, the digital landscape also harbors deceitful schemes. Be cautious of:

  -Get-Rich-Quick Promises

Schemes that promise instant wealth with minimal effort are often scams. Genuine success typically requires time, effort, and dedication.

   -Pyramid and Ponzi Schemes: 

These fraudulent structures promise high returns but operate on the unsustainable principle of recruiting more participants. They eventually collapse, leaving most participants with losses.

   - Cryptocurrency Scams:

Be wary of schemes involving cryptocurrencies that promise guaranteed profits. Research and verify any crypto investment thoroughly.

   - Unverified Investment Advisors:

 Always verify the credentials and legitimacy of investment advisors or firms. Avoid unsolicited investment offers from unknown sources.

The Art of Discernment:

Navigating the online world's intricate web of opportunities and deceptions necessitates a discerning approach. Here's how to develop this critical skill to stay safe:

   - Research:

 Investigate any online opportunity thoroughly. Look for reviews, testimonials, and information from reputable sources.

   - Seek Advice:

 Consult with experienced individuals who have succeeded in your chosen field. They can offer guidance and insights.

   - Question Promises:

   - Trust Your Instincts:

 If something feels off or suspicious, trust your instincts and proceed with caution.

The online world brims with genuine ways to earn money, but distinguishing them from deceptive traps requires vigilance. 

By honing the art of discernment, you can embark on a journey toward financial success while sidestepping the pitfalls that ensnare the unwary.


 Shifting Mindsets: From "Get Rich Quick" to Sustainable Success:

The desire for immediate wealth often leads individuals down a perilous path. To succeed in the online realm, one must shift their mindset from a "get rich quick" mentality to one that values gradual growth and learning from setbacks. 

Building a sustainable online income necessitates patience, perseverance, and a commitment to long-term success.

The pursuit of rapid wealth often lures individuals into a labyrinth of financial pitfalls. It promises instant gratification but conceals the inherent risks and disappointments. 

Such a mindset not only leaves one vulnerable to scams but also undermines the genuine potential for lasting prosperity.

The Path to Sustainable Online Success:

Shifting one's mindset toward sustainable success necessitates several key principles:

Patience Over Impatience:

   - Recognize that genuine success seldom unfolds overnight. The road to financial stability is marked by incremental progress, requiring patience to weather the inevitable challenges.

Perseverance Amidst Setbacks:

   - Embrace setbacks as learning experiences. Sustainable success is often built upon a foundation of failures, each serving as a stepping stone towards growth.

Learning Over Ignorance:

   - Seek knowledge and self-improvement continually. Sustainable success arises from a commitment to acquiring new skills, refining existing ones, and adapting to the ever-evolving digital landscape.

Long-Term Vision Above Short-Term Gains

   - Shift your focus from quick wins to long-term goals. Sustainable success requires a strategic approach that prioritizes building a robust foundation for the future.

Resilience in the Face of Uncertainty

   - Understand that the online world is dynamic, subject to fluctuations and uncertainties. Building resilience to navigate these changes is essential for lasting success.

Ethical and Value-Driven Ventures:

   - Align your online endeavors with ethical principles and values. Sustainable success is rooted in trust and integrity.

That's me for you

The Online Entrepreneur's Journey:

Online entrepreneurship is not a sprint but a marathon—a journey where sustainable success is the ultimate destination. It's a path where you'll encounter both triumphs and tribulations, where resilience and adaptability will be your greatest assets.

The Power of Learning and Growth:

Every setback, every challenge, and every obstacle on this journey is an opportunity for growth. Learning from failures, refining strategies, and persistently improving are the cornerstones of sustainable online success.

Embracing Sustainable Success:

Ultimately, the shift from a "get rich quick" mentality to one of sustainable success is a profound transformation. It requires a commitment to long-term growth, a resilience that withstands setbacks, and an unwavering dedication to learning and self-improvement.
