People always ask me for advice on what kind of business to do.
After going on the radio show ' Naija women in business' on inspiration FM, ,92.3, i have decided to write a mini series on business.
First, business is not for everyone. Its important to realize that. Don't start a business just for the sake of it. The odds of the business succeeding would be low. Also not everyone has to go into 'buying and selling'
A friend of money came to my store some months ago to ask for advice on what business to do. She already had a hobby she loved doing, which was making bridal accessories. I told her to develop that idea, create a product line and the business would take on a life of its own from there.
You can do everything and anything you want.
Some alternate business ideas that don't include buying and selling are
