I Don't Understand Again... I'm Not Enterprising At All.... by olabisi99(f): 2:36pm On Oct 02, 2020
A good day to you all. So to go straight to the point... I'm 20 years old and I'll just say I've only got ideas in my head but to put it into action is the problem for me. I'm always afraid of wat the outcome might be. I'm still a student by the way and I think it's actually a great opportunity for me to be an entrepreneur. But I am so scared. I've tried watching all these motivational talks but there is just no improvement.. Is there anyone who has been in this position before and who conquered coz I am fed up and I really wish I could do something with my time and the way the country is going, one has to have a side job... Over to you people...

Sincerely I'm impressed with your desire to venture into business. It's a great idea and I can assure you'll not regret going for it.

For the fear of "what will come out of it", It's normal and practically applicable to even big business men. But you got to push it aside and kick off.

Let me share a couple of tricks that can help you:

Survey and confirm what you want to sell: It's either a product or service, check around your possible market. That is the potential buyer and seller. What's the size of buyer and how do they want to be served.

Start small: Even large business venture into new markets small small. With this you'll not be afraid of failure.

Sell online (products) : this will save you some cost on space. Also you'll close more deals online than running shop.

Lastly, I'll advice you learn skills. It sells more and usually cost little to set up.

I did some stunts when I was an undergrad too and it worth the time/effort.

Being an Engineering student, we do a lot of drawing (Engineering design). So, I'll buy a ream of A1 paper at the beginning of semester from Lagos. For every drawing class I'll go to school with extra papers that I'll sell to colleagues. It's wasn't much cash but tfare is sorted grin

Also In my final year, I ran Computer training for primary schools in town. Since I have only 4 courses for the last 2 semesters, I had enough time to run the training. That time computer training was still selling o (early 2000).
Came to Lagos, bought one desktop (with my Project money) . Charge the schools per class. I made over 100% in the first month.

So dear, shoot it.
