With an increasingly top job market, now has never been a time in Nigeria for people to start their business. These may sound daunting task, but there are many who have successfully turned an idea into successful businesses.
So the big question is, why do people want to follow this path? In my opinion, there are about about 12 reasons why you should start your business.
You may be up to some stumbling block more than what you will face working under somebody. These may include finding new clients, managing finances, increasing sales, market research and hiring staffs.
Solving someone’s problem
When creating your business, you’re actually creating a solution to someone’s problem. A person produces shoes in other or people without shoes to buy and wear it. By doing that, you create a solution to the person.
You’ll learn new skills and knowledge
In other to overcome the challenges, you’ll need to learn new business skills and knowledge. These may include working with teams, risk management, communication, legal, building brand and also building an online presence.
You’re the boss of your business and what you decide goes to either build your business up or down, but ultimately, you’re still in charge and you have to decide.
Things your way
Because you’re in charge, you can do things the way you want and at the time you want it.
Your business is from your idea and your future success will definitely be dependent on how innovative you’re in developing it continuously. This is to make it fresh and relevant to your clients.
With more success coming, you’ll need more hands to help you in running your business. These will expose to hiring some workers who they’ll help to boost your business. But hiring should be done with seriousness, so that you hire the best.
Expose to more research
Because you run your own business, you’ll want to do more research to know what others are doing in other to improve your product or services.
Control your time
One big advantage of starting your own business is you’ll have your own time controlled by you and you alone. You may decide to go to your business place in the by 6:00am or even 9:00pm. If you decide not to go in time, no one gives you a quarry.
When you decide to start your business, it means you want to get out of the box and take the risk a lot of people are afraid of. The saying is true “no risk, no reward”.
