Listen, never rely on just one source of income. Build your value by learning multiple skills and be steadily deploying them.
Be wise. Even if everyone cannot be an entrepreneur, at least be an investor or create a side-hustle. Save money and invest in assets that can bring you steady returns.
Design your own life. Do what is right and let God do what is left.
