This post will be as brief as possible but before I list these small businesses for young individuals in Nigeria, I want us to note that I don’t advice my readers to start any type of business simply because the funds are available.

There are few things I will like you to consider before starting any business.

Factors to Considered before You Start any Business

1. You must consider first what you love doing i.e. what you have passion for that come rain or sunshine you will stick to, nurture carefully and watch it grow. You know in business, there are ups time and downs time, passion will help you persevere and never give up. In other words, list your interest, skills and access you personality.

2. Your environment: Is that business going to sell in your planned location of establishment? This also matters a lot as what will sell in location A might not be a good choice for location B.

3. What will be your plan for the business? Do you have a goal to achieve?

Will you like it to be incorporated? Do you intend to sustain the business or just need a business that will be sustaining you until you get a pay job?

4. Ask yourself, can I sell? If you can’t, you need to learn how to sale, because business is about selling (Be it a product or service).

5. Now, you should also determine how much risk you can take and bear
