Here is an encouraging verse that do not encourage you to do the same thing again and again otherwise you would not grow.

“Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow. – Ronald E. Osborn.”

Whether you are in the electronic repair field or in any other field. One must always try to look for other opportunities and start to acquire new knowledge. With this way, you will not fully dependent on a single field and yet there are still income from another field. Try to save for the rainy days.

Many years back I once got a question from a succesful business man and he asked me this:

Jestine, assuming if there is a problem for two weeks, could your business sustain on that period. What he meant was could my company financial still hold on if the shop was to close for two weeks?  He told me that many people out there could not even sustain for one week period be it for two weeks!

That question really had made me to pondered about the company financial. From that day onward, i started to plan and  grow my repair business and save the money for future use and etc.

If you are operating the repair business  on your own, hope that you can allocate some of the earning to save in the bank or even you can invest in anything that you think of that can get some return.

    Hello Jestine, I like this verse because it is the same with me. I am a biochemist and I work in food processing. I never woriied about the future, But when I was 31 years I saw that I had a good job yes but nothing else. So I bought some lands and build houses for rent, now I am 40 years and I have renting 7 houses to families.

    And I now have a better job at a famous company. I even have a farm with 3 tilapia ponds. That is something new I learned in Costa Rica.

    Last year I started working studying electronics as a hobby, now from last 2 months I have fixed 7 televisions and that is some income I never expected, cuz its just a hobby.

    And if I never studied electronics, why I would not know something new. Last week I was working on a TV and look, I see bad sync on the TV. So it is the first time I see this. I can't solve the problem. Then I remember the Testing ebook, so I get my multi-meter and check frequency on crystal. Hey it has a low frequency less that half the value. And it feels so good inside when I changed and it worked.

    But if I never tried, see we have to take chances sometimes.

    I wish Gods blessings on all you do.

    Hi Jorge,

    That was a good and fantastic sharing about having few streams of income. It was good too that you had solved the TV problem-congratulation! Guess what, I'm also 40 years old this year.

    Hello Jestine, I thought I was too old. Hey I look at you and I said, Jestine looks like 30 years. I wonder if I am too old to learn. But I saw about the English man that was in your course and I said hey maybe I can learn a little. I really like electronics, so now I have my God, My family and a hobby.
