The "WHY" OF EDUCATION
Why do we go to school?
Why do we get educated?
Six MUST years in primary education
Six HARD years in secondary education
Four basic PROGRAMMED years in University
After 16 solid years of mental academic journey
Which had sucked most productive part of our lives
We are out looking for job for the rest of our lives
Then, we are forced to ask!
IS OUR EDUCATION PACKAGED TO
LOOK FOR JOB
Why MUST our best brain look for job?
Why MUST our best brain languish in the
Why were we trained for 16 solid years to become a slave?
Why MUST parents remain as bread winner to a graduate even after so-called "university degree" feeding him & his wife?
What an accident!
What a barrier!
What a certificate!
What a degree!
What an experience!
What a failure!
What a government!
What a hardy!
What an inability!
What a jargon!
What a kill-joy!
WHAT A LIFE!
If Boko Haram hate education
And govt makes education
hard to get,
meaningless to use,
costly to pursue,
irrelevant to life,
Then who is the BIGGEST BOKO HARAM?
Education is to liberate
Education is to build
Education is to create
To liberate us from internal & external slavery
To build our personal self-esteem and success
To CREATE JOBS FOR OTHERS AND FLOURISH YOUR LIFE
It's time to give meaning to our education
It's time to rewrite our academic syllabus
It's time to make education relevant to life
It's time to stop SLAVERY EDUCATION
It's time to start MASTER EDUCATION
It's time for parents to reap fruits of their labour
It's time to show evidence of spending on children
It's time to reward the educated
Or why must I laboured to be educated
When I know that I can control the economy
Just with three things
1. Political god-father
2. "Toronto" certificate
3. Area thugs
Why must I struggle to be educated
When I can by fortunes as a footballer
When I can buy fame as a musicians
All on my effort, not your fruitless education
Why must I go to school?
When the certificate earn me nothing
When my degree keeps me searching
When my credentials keep me worrying
All doors closed in the name "too qualify to be employed"
All interview end with "thank you, come next year"
What a frustrated life as a graduate!
It's time to go to real school
It's time to learn new thing
It's time to live new life
It's time to be REAL YOU
You are a WINNER
Go out and WIN MOREEE!!! a graduate!
It's time to go to real school
It's time to learn new thing
It's time to live new life
It's time to be REAL YOU
You are a WINNER
Go out and WIN MOREEE!!!

All these are not small businesses though but, if I may add, opening a standard gym center should also be lucrative in big cities?

eunisam:You called these small business?
|Re: 10 Small Business Ideas For Big Cities And Towns In 2017 by engrkunlex: 10:49am On Jan 11|
The business concept, many employer wont share with you
Let’s me introduce myself to you, in order to lets you know am not here to scam anyone rather to break you from Financial hardship, Am here to strictly give information not advert or profile selling, am (Andrew O.K a.k.a engrkunlexy4u, am from Ibadan but base in Aba), I started the business during my service year in Aba, and today the rest is good story to tell.
Before I continue to explain, try to answer this question if you can, and also know some facts.
1. The largest selling of textile materials in Nigeria is which state?
2. Electronics container from oversea is entering lagos as Number 1 importer , while Textile,Okirika (Buskoro) is entering which state as Number 1 importer?
3. 70% of the shirts, pants trousers we used in Nigeria, is made from where (you will never know this, if you are not from Onitcha or Aba)?
Lets me share these amazing facts with you?
70% of boxers used in Nigeria is made from Aba (anybody with contrary evidence should quote me wrong), shirt they sell and jeans is directly made from Aba. The question is, are they Aba made? Nope and yes, what we called Aba made is simply lack of packaging and that is why someone like I and you is going to invest into all this area. Later, I will still share amazing things about Aba peoples you need to know.
Introduction into the business (Boxers)
Boxer is made of different materials, we have close to 7 materials, but the common type of materials in making boxer is majorly two in Nigeria today, check this link for the facts: http://dudeundies.com/news/7-mustknow-mens-underwear-fabric-types/ (Cotton and Bed sheets material), lets me explain to you, original Boxers materials is made using Cotton material (Shirt Material) because the texture is of high quality and it does not wash nor change the color after entering water, most packing shirt material we used are made of Cotton materials, it also does not absorb heat and the washing is very simple, you get this type of boxer in supermarket and good store. Lets me share of other the materials with you, called bed sheet material, go and look for a bed sheet material that brings color and remove hair after washing and you will understand what I want to explain, note: we have some bed sheet material that are costly but am sure they will never use that to produce boxer, only a big company use it, Bed sheets material is very cheap to get and most people get their profit from using that in producing boxer, as per say Nigeria like cheap things, Bed sheet materials has less (good) and thick textile texture, this is the type of boxer you wear and 2nd day your yarns and this stuff will begin to ask for fresh air (you get that line), where can I get that? Some fake supermarket store, aboki for road, omo igbo for road side, infact they can sell it for you at 150 to 200, they have already make their profit. It is left for you to choose what you want as a visionary business person.
Why you need to do the business
Do you know that 50% of ladies now wear boxer? Do you know that 10% of women (our Mother) also wear boxer? Do you also know that 80% of our papas now wear boxer and lastly do you know that 95% of grown up guys have nothing less than 3 boxers in their wardrobe? All this estimate was not so in the year past. Before our own generations wear pants, am still a young guy, our ladies don’t even wear boxers before, our mother don’t try it, while our father only wears pants or none. This facts should make you know that the paradigm of fashion is shifting and its for the best brain that will grab this profitable future opportunity and make it a reality. Another reason why you should do this business is, do you know that most people used to overlook the production of boxer and very few peoples knows how to sew boxer well, ask anybody in the North and western part of the country where they are producing boxer, they will tell you from yanki(abroad) or those guy that don’t have what to do.
The marketing strategies
I will like to explain from what worked for me during my service year and now I can be proud of it. Then we used to pick it at the rate of 200 naira and packed it into 3 in a good nylon for just 1000, the nylon at times attract peoples, people talk about Aba made, Simple definition of Aba made is what simply lack packaging and lack of well arrangement, though I know some people sew bad material for boxers and still sells. We give out to our fellow friends and also go to nearby store, banks and offices to deliver to them, some get attracted with the nylon and the color packed inside. Also, know that if people love you, even if they have 10 boxers at home, they will still buy from you, mostly, ladies sell faster than we guys you understand better.
How do I make my own profit?
The profit is very simple; first, ensure you are getting a good material from your supplier, because this will make your business sustainable for long. Imagine you are getting at 200 per one and you are packing it into 3 per 1 as in you pack 3 boxers inside one nylon for just start of 1000, mathematically, you gain 400 on it, which means 100+ on one boxers, may be after expenses of buying nylon and may be you want sticker to the nylon, you later make 100 on each boxer, I believe that is enough for anybody. Secondly, you can target supplying it out to people close to you, I have a guy who always acts as a middlemen for the boxer, he gets it and supply out to his people for sell, he made faster money than we do then. Making your profit depends on how you can think deep on it.
Risk attached to this Business
I believe there is no business without risk, any business that poses without risk must not be a genuine business. Number one risk is frustration? What do I mean, if you ever buy boxers from an untrusted person, and your customer started condemning your goods, you notice that frustration is the first thing that will come to you, advice, don’t go for anybody you cant trust in supplying you the boxer, and no matter what, never allow your customer to select boxer and that is why we packed it in a nylon, because all colour can never be so attracting, they compensate each other. Secondly, if you fail to establish market or target a market, you may be disappointed that it is easy to establish with mind but execution is a challenge, my advice for you is to talk about it to friends and family even your enemy and lets them comments about it. Lastly, You are the last risk, don’t join because I said its profitable, simply follow your dream and lets be fits into making it before you start, I started with my mind fits in making it, and today, after my NYSC, I stayed back in producing my own boxers and also work as an IT executive for one popular radio station in the city.
The business is sweet, but if you don’t have right mind of making it, don’t start it. Today, am supplying to different state today simply because I started the business from my mind after gathering all the facts needed and I develop a right attitude towards it. I started producing my own with less than 200, 000 today, though I invested more than that into it now.
If you will like me to supply you anywhere you are in the country, I can incur the cost of sending it but it will be (a pack) which is 25 pieces inside a pack nylon at N5,000 for now, I will pack 3 in 1 boxer separately from your 25 pieces as a sample for you, you pay after receiving it, you pay to the person that will give to you or from where you will get it from after bargain on sending it, I will only incur the cost of transporting it for the first time and subsequently you pay for the transportation on your own, all is to clear your doubt about it.
:If you have interest on how to make your own boxer with less than 200, 000, just drop your mail on this forum, I will mail you.
