I Just Opened A Business And Got A Salary Work I'm Confused by Crossbelt(m): 9:27pm On Oct 28, 2020
Corona virus made me lose my job so the little I saved I decided to use it to open a chemist, since last three months I've been working on it though just last week I opened the place but my problem is that I've gotten another work which I'm expecting to start next week.

My problem is that I don't know if should reject the work and be nuturing my business gradually or I should employ someone though I don't know the risk attached.

Please help a brother I'm seriously confused right now.

geting a trusted hand to run your biz will be difficult.

my advice; go to work in the morning, when you're closed in the evening you can open your shop let's say 6-9 pm.

Since the business is still new I will not advise you to give it to another person to manage for you...the person will just steal you blind since you have no way of telling the average amount you should be expecting daily as sales.

If you want to take the new job your best bet would be to go to work in the mornings then when you close for work in the evening you open your shop

We need to know other factors like the nature of job; is it a govt or private employer?, The salary structure of the job? how large the chemist is; small, medium or big?

Let me be honest here, chemist isn't something to vouch on especially if the location is not ok, some chemist dispose off drugs expired in their custody due to low patronage.

Look for someone.. preferably a sibling like your younger sister or wife to oversee it for you. Then you concentrate on your job.

It depends on the salary package.

I will recommend you stay focus on your new business.

Staying focus on the business will really help you and you will make more returns.

Congrats on your achievement..PROUD OF YOU.

If you know how much that chemist will pay you in less than one year you won't even think twice about letting the job go.

The first place sick people rush to is chemist, except they are severely I'll before going to hospitals.

So people buy drugs very cheap and sell times 4 the price they bought in Nigeria here.

You can buy injections for 100 and give at 4k

Some drugs are just 300 but you sell 900

So the gain in that business is massive but many don't know. For a start you need to be on ground to establish the business and gain trust from customers around.

Forget that job ooo be wise...

This could work with strong inventory control.

sparogatively having multiple streams of income is a great idea. However, you cannot paddle your boat on two streams at the same time.

Here is where trust comes in. You need to find someone you can trust to paddle your second boat on the other stream(s) you have discovered for yourself.

That misleading word many say about not trusting anyone is a big lie! You need to trust people but not inordinately.

Don't do anything.

Just close the business and don't report for the work.

You will be fine

Accept the job. Oversee the chemist partially while you pay someone (trusted and qualified) from your salary to run it daily. See how the business grows for at least six months before you make the decision to go into it full time or stay at your job. Simple.

Excellent Customer relationship.

Remitting at least your full cost and 50% of profit.

If the person you get to supervise the business for you can do this two things, don’t care if they rob you. Just keep that business running and take the job. No matter what you do keep that business running.

Hire someone. You are afraid to hire someone and the work you are going to someone took the risk to hire you. Life is all about risk. Even if they steal from you you will still gain something and gain experience. You could be lucky to hire someone that will take the business as her own. For now do not hire a male.... E get why.

Please resume in your new work place. Businesses are suffering big time now during this pandemic and the Nigerian factor.

At least, you will be sure of monthly salary and other emoluments that comes as a corporate worker. Don't allow awon entrepreneurs to deceive you. Running business or being on your own in Nigeria is dangerous and risky.
