Bro you are already done.

If you know what will be good for you just go learn barbing or phone repair and thank me later.

I'm into tilling, but bro expenses outweighs the income.

Reason why you should stay away from tilling.

1. You are not valued in the labour maker because those you are working with are rich men

2. Intimidation is of high volume
3. It is very had to have your money fully payed
4. You age faster
5. You can't build a better connection that will improve you rather is big men that wouldn't even like to spend Kobo on a dirty worker like you.
6. A little mistake your money is gone
7. depreciation In price.
And many more.
No time for yourself, worse if you're a student.

It's an experience, and am even planning to decamp very soon.

But still yet grace differs.

Most Nigerian guys don't cut their hair again. They go about with bushy dusty hair. To them it's fashion.

Go for tiling. Everyday people are building houses and the amount got in one tiling contract outweighs the amount got in cutting 5000 people's hair.
Note that the highest a Nigerian man would pay to cut his hair is N300 and most of them don't cut their hair again.

Like me, I cut my hair myself, skin no Barber shop again for the past 3 yrs now grin

Tiling, in my opinion. You don't know how long and hard it took me to get a reliable tiler a few months ago.

Kudos to his brother for helping out financially. Please tell him to leave him alone for now cheesy

Tilling is professional, so he has to learn it and learn it properly

Barbing is something that you can learn within three months and set up a shop

With the above two, he has the chance to be busy with Barbing any time he has no Tilling to do

See where your reasoning carry you go, woman will always be a woman

For starters, Tilling works is kind of a seasonal job, people don't build during raining season.

It's better someone earns 300 every 25 mins of that day than to wait for weeks or months to get 300k.

Be wise

Only you can answer this. What do you want to be in life and which one will take you there?

Note: do what you love and you will never have to work a day in your lifetime. This way, the money must come!
Re: Tiler Or Barbing, by HRMK: 3:22am On Jun 10
that depends on how fast u want to make it in life!if its regular chopmoney u want,go for barbing!if its abt bn successful within a timeframe,go for tiling!!
Re: Tiler Or Barbing, by flow26(m): 3:30am On Jun 10
Tiling it is. The real estate/construction industry keeps expanding and I can tell you there are not enough good tilers so with good marketing strategy and grace,the sky is the limit.
Re: Tiler Or Barbing, by Originalsly: 3:56am On Jun 10
Tiling.... not many people do tiling... but a whole lot are barbers. If barbing must pay the bills and take care of the family.... one has to be living in a city where men pay attention to their hair. How good is he with hand skills?.... a successful barber has to be better than most .... and has to find his customers. Most people do not jump from one barber to the other.... they stick with one as long as possible... he has to build reputation and that takes time ... if he is that good.
Tiling..... buildings be going up everyday... almost all need tiling done. He can invest the money in buying equipment for tiling... including a tile cutter to up his levels above the ordinary tiler. He can learn from You Tube .... it will be soo much easier to be rated as a tiler than a barber. No comparison when it comes to earnings.

He won't need all that 500k to learn both.
he can learn both and use the remaining to open a barbershop already (to sustain income). Look for a good barber to hire and share profits with and also use style to learn from.

The OCD in me also made me correct your English, sorry.

Do you know what it takes for a building to get to tiling stage. Barbing gives daily income from babies, men and women

Since April 2020, till date, I haven't visited any barbing shop., And not ready in the near future.
Why, I bought two rechargeable hair clippers.
Floor tiling surpassed hair barbing in terms of being lucrative.
Learning these two skills ain't bad, if you are focused you can run these two business.
Re: Tiler Or Barbing, by JohnEazy(m): 8:11am On Jun 10
Guy.... learn Tiling o....at age 40+ you will rarely get customers in barbing because young guys mostly like patronizing younger hands...but one contract in Tiling can change your generational story.

Tiles and Tiling will be obsolete someday.
People have started buying personal Clipper, barbing their hair by themselves.
Barbing will be outdated someday.

With just 100k you can make 50k daily and if you're to invest the whole 500k that's 250k daily it's just you and your bank you don't need to depend on anyone but lowest amount you can make it's like 30k at least I'll give you all necessary identification proof even one on one with lawyer if you want
