After just recently relocating my family from Nigeria to Australia and spent all my savings on re-booked flight, relocation, accommodation and a car. I had just $4k AUD in savings. My first thought after settling down was 'How do I sustain a family of 4 as a PhD student and a savings of just $4k AUD? Or maybe work? But how do I combine studies with having a family and work enough to sustain them. I need a plan. I blindly delved into crypto like a noob in February 2020 and got scammed of my savings worth $4k. Not a rug, it was a syndicate group of professional scammers, who put together a website that shows profit that can never be realized. That was all I needed to quit crypto. I had to go back to work, to earn some money. I could barely buy the groceries I needed for my family on a weekly basis for a few months as I was saving for my comeback into crypto. Very surprising right??? I was able to come up with $200 weekly, enough to start buying ETH, BNB and BTC and every other altcoin I believed in. Between May 2020 and January 2021. I got lucky with LINK (went from $4 to $23) EGLD (went from $7 to $220) and BNB (went from $35 to $600). I was a big fundamental analyst and that helped a lot. I also started teaching crypto to friends and family so that they do not fall for the same scam I fell for. I literarily rallied all of my close contacts. Some listened, some did not. Started a group called Crypto Circle and held weekly zoom meetings teaching crypto to people. Then DeFi came along. Had about farming for the first time in January 2021. Bought cake at $1 and rode it up to $40. Did my due diligence and realized PCS, which launched in Sept. 2020 was primed to pick up in January following the crazy ETH gas fees. I was always there early into any DeFi: Bankroll Flow, Eclipse Global and finally DRIP. Made some bad moves on the TRON side with a lot of this classic ponzi and lost along with some friends. But again Never say Never. Until I found DRIP. Having experience with Bankroll Flow, one of the first genuine ROI DApp on TRON, I already had a foresight of what DRIP would do. I invested 70% of my networth into DRIP at the time. It was a matter of go hard, or go home!!! The rest is history. Foresight through experience is an integral tool you need to succeed in DeFi. You should be able to look and clearly see the end from the beginning. Might be a bit blurred, but you should at least see Mirage. Gauge community sentiments and make your move. I had always known all I needed was one or two projects to breakthrough in DeFi. After discovering DRIP, we have recorded little or no rugpulls in 15 months. Today, I am a proud mentor to DeFi OGs, Founder of KeepitDeFi and a PropTech company worth millions of dollars. The community here at KiD is the most priceless to me. 👌 Thanks for being part of the journey. Let us keep growing and keep building. ✨ 🚀 🔥

I have never shared this information publicly before, but I hope my story can inspire you. I started a business 9 years ago. Over the following 7 years, it became a 8-figure multi-million dollar business. Unfortunately, during the COVID era, my business was heavily impacted by the closure mandate imposed by the City. I lost 97% of my revenue in just 2.5 weeks, and I was accumulating massive amount of debt as a result. Ultimately, I lost the business, my home, and I was faced with business bankruptcy and potential personal bankruptcy. I sold whatever I have left, and I moved into my in-laws’ house with my wife and three kids. It was an extremely humbling experience since I have lived on my own since I was 16 years old. Nevertheless, through God’s grace, it began the process of restoration and reset for myself and my family. I worked three jobs over the past last two years trying to make up some ground on the devastating loss that I have encountered. 6 months ago, I discovered Drip. I started with a small wallet (paid $154/drip). Then 2 months later, I added another wallet (and I paid $135/drip). And in the last 4 months, I added 3 more wallets…one for each of my kid. I also contributed between 20% to 25% of the total income that I receive from my three jobs towards DCA in Drip. I am still relatively “young” in this Drip journey…but as of today, the total passive income that I receive from Drip has allowed me to quit one of the three jobs that I have. By the end of the year, I would be able to quit the next job. By March of next year, I could potentially quit the last job if I choose to. I can’t predict how Drip is going to perform for the years to come, but it has certainly changed my life. Not just financially, but I have adapted the same concept of improving myself 1% a day. I know I am not yet where I want to be, but I will get there through the power of daily compounding in Drip and myself.

"The sweet smell of success is in the air!" I often think about my Uncle Lou who was a wonderful hard working man. If fact, he worked two jobs doing everything he could think of in order to be successful but nothing advanced him financially. He saw someone on tv win from a huge lottery drawing so he decided to start purchasing lotto tickets every time he received a check from his job. He consistently purchased lotto tickets for forty years, suddenly he died, never experiencing what I would be like to win a life changing income. The only thing left behind was a large shoebox filled with lotto tickets. It sadden me to realize that Uncle Lou died broke. Just think, how many people do you know that are doing the same thing and expecting success to fall on them? When people feel that life has no hope, many of them will do what Uncle Lou did because they have no knowledge of a better opportunity. Instead of following the path of my uncle, I chose to follow Forex Shark and it has proved to be one of the best decisions I'd ever made in my life. I bought Drip instead of lotto tickets like Uncle Lou. Nothing feels better than having my bills paid and driving a nice car. My wife and I go out on weekly dates and enjoy dining at really nice places. Life is fun again! I admire Forex Shark for being a great leader because he cares about people. The best way to measure a great leader is to observe the fruits from the trees he plants. The fruits represent the lifestyles that have been created by Drip. Actually there are millionaires who only give away small portions of money to preserve the butterflies & etc. I'm not criticizing anyone for doing what they want to do with their own money but my hat goes off to a man who sacrifices his time, knowledge, and wealth to teach others how to create a lifestyle by design. Drip has created more millionaires and soon to be more billionaires when the farm launches than anyone else that I know of on the planet. History is about to be made for the crypto world. The Drip community is so amazing! Their generosity is far beyond what anyone could ever imagine! Last year, the Drip Community gave away free Drip, turkeys, food, clothes, and water filtration systems to families in need. The Drip Community is team of leaders that are building ambassadors who are changing the world. Can you imagine what they will do this year? I am thankful for Drip! I believe it is a God sent opportunity! Nothing can stop what God has set into motion!

I have been separated from my family for over 2 1/2 years due to the travel restrictions and the pandemic. My wife and 6 year old son were in the Philippines and I was in the USA. While i was in the states I kept myself busy installing laminate floors and any other construction type work. My plan was to return home to my family leaviing March 12 2020 arriving in the Philppines March 15, 2020. Then the travel restrictions and heartbreak of being away from my loved ones. I took a job with Uber eats to provide money for my family and sent money home to them every week. At the same time i invested some of my earnings into crypto. So many projects were rugged and many just nevery got off of the ground. I did have a few successes! A friend of mine introduced me to Drip. I believe at the time Drip was $17. Since then I invested in every Drip related project. Manor Farms, REV, and Animal Farms. Each and every one has been a blessing to my family and me. I made $14,000 in 14 days in Rev. I made ROI in less than two weeks in Manor Farms and that was a long time ago. I made money on Animal Farm before we had to pause and I cannot wait for the relaunch as I am confident it will also be a great blessing. WELL, I have finally been able to get back with my family. Drip has kept our family fed for the past 5 months. I opened a second Drip account and I have been signing on new people pretty frequently. Besides caring for my family I have been able to care for 4 widows and 7 orphans. I am not just withdrawing funds, but compounding frequently and buying drip when the price is best. I have a second Drip account that I compound only. I bout 2 bnb of Drop to support Drip from the reservoir side. I was able to purchase a motorcycle with Drip so my son and I can go riding in the mountaiins together. I am thankful and excited to see where Drip and the greatest community in crypto go from here.

I'm 36, been in crypto for 18 months, before that time I was severely depressed and went back to live with my parents after a burnout in my last job. I saw the opportunity to get myself freedom from a employees job as I couldn't see myself having a boss again. I didn't win or lose money during the first months in crypto but learned a lot, I knew I wasn't interested in trading because I understood that stress was the worst thing possible for my health so I was looking to be early in projects with an investor's mindset. I ended up in Rake farm and one day Forex came in the voicechat and explained his next project and it sounded like the perfect thing to my ears and I had this intuition that Forex was not only a genious dev but an honest and trustworthy person. So I sold half of my holdings and went into drip presale, convinced my dad to follow me. My parents were close to retiring and were very worried for their future because they wouldn't have a decent pension. 2 months later I sold the rest of my holdings, bought a ticket for the DAO and put the rest in drip. I was all in. Today I have 7 figures in drip/AF and some nice bags in several other projects for diversification, bought a few acres in COA following Gerald's enthusiasm and I'm beyond excited for this project. I live in a nice city now where I made some good friends and met a cool girl recently who I can see myself getting married to. Her dad is giving me a hard time and is concerned that I don't have a real job, I can't wait to see his face when I buy a nice appartement for his daughter and I, paid cash with crypto earnings. Forex has changed my life in a year, and gave me the chance to give back to my parents and secure a comfortable retirement for them. I met so many nice, smart and generous people in this space, it's really humbling and inspiring, and I can't believe I'm invited to whales groups now lol, trully crazy !!

I came into the crypto space few months ago with major anxiety issues, chronic depression, and 20k family debt that have left me feeling in a deep hole at 27 years old. Like any rookie, I arrived in search of an alternative to my life since my mental situation began to be dangerous and the medication had less effect on me with the time.. in those moments you wonder if it's worth continuing like this... After losing my savings in a rug pull I came across DRIP by chance, I began to investigate the project and Forex because it seemed incredible to me that in the DEFI world there could be a project as solid and resistant as what DRIP represents. I started to interact with the community in the TG group and that was the moment when I realized: this is special. The people I spoke with were super positive and open and shared with me their experience in the project and the dreams achieved thanks to DRIP. That made me feel motivated for the first time in a long time, to feel that making a real change in my life could be possible. Although I haven't been able to pay off my debt yet, I'm trying to build my own team in the community little by little. And I feel accompanied every time I participate in the group to comment on the funny anecdote of the day or talk about finances. For me Drip is much more than an investment, it is a place where I can be myself, socialize, share and feel good knowing that my future will be different thanks to Drip in some time. If you are reading this and you find yourself in a similar situation, I want to tell you that you can get out of it, and that you are in the right place for improving your life. #BeStrong #Hydrateyourdrip

That’s awesome, so happy for you! Thank you for sharing your story with us, its inspiring. Im 24 years old and a few years ago, I started to feel unwell out of nowhere, at the time I was attending college and working two part time jobs and was very stressed most of the time. I started losing weight without trying even though I wasn’t skipping meals and getting more frequent stomach aches and other symptoms such as fatigue, intense anxiety that came out of the blue, and slight shortness of breath. I was once 120 pounds and dropped down to 90 in less than six months, and with all these symptoms and changes going on I was feeling very weak and no longer able to tolerate exercise or heat and it affected my ability to find job. I was able to get one thankfully but I decided that if my body was being unreliable, I was going to have to find a way to be financially free, and soon. Not to mention my job was stressful for my symptoms. I needed to have enough money to pay medical bills (those from the US can agree healthcare isn’t cheap). In July 2021 I dove into defi and eventually the DRIP network. I was hesitant at first to invest money in this project, or any crypto/defi, but after doing research I decided to take the chance, the 1% seemed unique and promising, and this has been the best decision Ive ever made. After starting my first wallet with a couple thousand I saved up from my paycheck, I hydrated it for awhile, and about five months went by, I just focused on being careful with my health, resting, and doing the best I could in my job that I did not really pay attention to the gains I made until about month six. I remember the first time I started making back a 1% return of 250 dollars daily, which paid way more than my job, I couldnt believe it. I wanted to see what compound interested over a longer time period could do so I compounded daily, even when drip dipped down to where I had bought in it, I kept compounding, because for the first time in awhile, I had hope. I had hope that I would be able to have a chance at seeing a good doctor that could heal me and help me find answers, and get back to doing the things I love. After compounding even through those points of uncertainty, at DRIP’s ATH of 200, my 1% return was 3800 (before taxes) a day and stayed at a comfortable $2700- 3000 a day when DRIP was around the $160-180 price for awhile. It was surreal to me, i started claiming 2 days out of the week at this point and hydrating the rest. I took it as a sign to make an appointment with a good doctor in my city, and am currently on the path towards healing. Thanks to DRIP I didn’t have to worry about whether I would be able to pay for it. During this time I was making in a DAY what I make in a month at my full time job, and I never thought I’d reach this point in life. Now at current prices, I make around 780-850 per day but that is still life changing money and I am not phased by it. Thanks to this project, I have been able to take several medical tests recommended by my doctor and feel more hopeful that I’ll be able to be treated, or better yet, healed. I’ve also been able to pay off my debt and treat my family and friends. I recently was informed that my job will be ending soon but I am not stressed. I no longer need one. This is more than I could ever ask or dream would be possible in this short amount of time. Just wanted to share my story to encourage.
