Let’s say a person earns Rs. 100 from one source of income and there is another person who earns Rs. 1 from 100 different sources of income. Now, who do you think has a more secure financial life? If the first person loses his “one and only” source of income, he will be left with nothing. But if the second person loses some of his income sources, he will still be able to earn a good amount of money.
Thus, it is very important for us to have alternate sources of income. A very good way to have a second source of income is to start investing, as your investment will act as another income source for you.
