You remember this man, money comes when you provide a service.
Remember that it is more worthwhile to be 'useful' to someone ...than to be having a job ,wealthy or powerful .

Here's something I read online a long time back..
Do some thing you love to do ...it can be anything ..and once you start doing more of that ..be sure that there is someone surely out there who will pay you all the money you need to continue doing that ..

Don't do anything illegal or cause undesirable things to happen to anyone though..that is a big waste of time
