The business industry in any country usually produces the greatest benefits and opportunities. In Nigeria, it is all the same. It is an exciting journey of hopes, successes and challenges. A business is a blue ocean of vast opportunities of much industry, creating positive experiences by impacting value to ordinary people, expanding to distant places and improving our world for good. The opportunities in starting and owning your own business are immeasurable. This whole idea of people all over, making good things to happen by taking a bold step to starting and owning a business defines the very concept of entrepreneurship and today, entrepreneurship is on the rise with over 500 million entrepreneurs around the world – and that means one in every 18 person own a business.
That number is only growing as many people are leaving their nine-to-five jobs to pursue their own entrepreneurial journey. In Nigeria, the massive youthful population is beginning to understand that their destiny lies in their hands by their daily choices and they, themselves can start and succeed in a business of their own. On the other hand, the government also has a role to play by initiating programs, policies and creating an enabling environment that support entrepreneurship. They also need to understand that entrepreneurship is the pathway for wealth creation and our economy can receive a boost from startups and innovative businesses. There is a positive trend as there is renewed hope for business. This is achievable considering how entrepreneurship has helped countries as United States, UK, Canada and Asian countries to achieve a more developed business landscape.


Today, tens of thousands of people are considering starting their own business. For good reasons, they have understood the plethora of benefits and opportunities that arise from having a business (es) of their own. They also get inspired by successful people who have their fortune from business and living the lives of their dream.

     However, starting and succeeding in a business venture is never a walk in the park. It requires due diligence, vision, discipline, a need and a positive passion to see one through. In a simple sense, one needs to find his voice. Your voice is your business unique personal significance and it is revealed as we face business challenges. It is not your talent, as your talent is your natural gifts and strengths, it is not passion as passion is things that naturally energized, excite, motivate and inspire you. Your voice is your soul’s code. Anyway, all these are fundamental and common sense principles of business success. This due diligence is what I will describe as “Pain Points”. Today, many prospective entrepreneurs in Nigeria face a lot of pain points when starting their own business. All these manifest when you hear them speak inaudibly from their heart; from statements such as “what business do I start”, “where should I invest my money”, “when should I start”, “should I do this business or a get a job”, “How will I start a business”, “can I start and manage a business to success”, “should I give the money to someone else to manage on my behalf”.

     It becomes worrisome when they have eventually come up with a business idea they are so sure but they have got no capital. This is a double whammy situation. Although it is cultural for Nigerian entrepreneurs to own their business entirely, many are not able to raise the funds to execute their ideas and generate a decent cash flow. They have to look for grants and equity funding, while they are not able to access or afford bank loans.

If you think that is all, there arises another scenario. How would you describe a situation where one has finally come up with a sound business idea, and even capital to start but he has got no technical or managerial skill to get it running? I understood this; it can be frustrating and painful.

     In my years of business and studies, I have seen and experienced a lot. I have met and listened to a lot of people and I can feel their frustration and dilemma of hundreds of thousands of people on business issues. My daily interactions with them through different sources over the years have been an eye-opener, the fundamental source of my learning and I can speak with deep conviction from all these experiences. Also, exposures, learning and years of relationship with these prospective and established business entrepreneurs have re-enforced this notion and have surely sustained my passion for writings on business issues.

     Going back to the pain, it is felt even by people in every kind of organization. It is also felt in families, communities, and society generally. It has lead a countless number into frustrations, time wastage, low pay, delinquency, low morale and many more. However, they knew themselves inside out, they know of their great hidden business potential in them, their talent, intelligence, capabilities, and creativity but find it difficult to start and manage their dream business(es) to success. They struggle daily to make it in a new reality and a new environment. The pain is personal, and it’s deep. You and I can feel it by relating with, any of the statements yourself. As one great man, Carl Rogers once said, “what is most personal is most general. Of course, one will say, “some people are already engaged in business, contributing and energized in different areas, but I will tell you ‘’far too few” considering our peculiar situation in Nigeria. I want to let you know, this country is an open green field with a lot of business opportunities not tapped and some not fully explored.

      Just think about it. Think about all these for a moment; the numerous unexplored business opportunities in the different sectors of the economy that present goldmine opportunities and our inability over the years to use our talents, capabilities, intelligence, and resources to harness them. Honestly, business data are sobering and our economy is being affected. It matches my own experience as well with business people. It is ironic to me despite all our gains in technology, innovation, and government well-meaning programs, many people are not starting and a lot are not thriving in the ones they started. They are not fulfilled. They are not excited either. They are frustrated. They are not clear on the business to start. Some still cringe on the security shell of government jobs while others don’t feel they can change things or make any difference. 

     Now it has metamorphosed to a bigger pain to us as a nation. Wait! Just for a moment, Now, can you imagine the personal and national cost of not fully engaging the passion, energy, talents, knowledge, and intelligence of the young population as a nation? The government is indeed providing succor to alleviate these pains but as a nation, we should understand that wealth can only be created by its people and that human resources should define the purpose and essence of our governance. Great nations are great not because they make life pay but because it’s human resources are developed and are great. Collectively, we must develop our human resources and reawaken our entrepreneurial spirit to start a business of our own and succeed in them.



   The problem of starting a business is unique to the individuals to run the business. As we have taken time to analyze the pains, let’s discuss the problem causing the pains. In other words, the problems, issues or challenges that prospective entrepreneurs and businesses are dealing with daily and that need to be solved are the problem points. A lot of these problems are familiar in the business landscape of ours and has resulted in the pains a lot of people have gone through in the course of their business life cycle.

     Good business (es) starts with a good business idea. The importance of a sound business idea cannot be over-emphasized as a wrong and poor one can lead to business failure no matter how well and further you have traveled on the wrong path. It is so vital in today’s competitive business world that prospective and business leaders often lock themselves in for several weeks developing a business idea that can withstand the test of time. So many rigors is often applied to this process that you wonder why the fundamental problems persist. Exploring and developing sound business ideas are so important that I have made it the overriding percept and essence of this book. Just as business ideas are unique, so also are the individuals and organizations planning to run and manage them. We are so unique in our talents, capabilities, bits of intelligence, experience, education and the environments we grew up that we respond differently to business ideas. In simpler terms, there is no fit all and we need a plethora of ideas to make informed and wise choices. Furthermore, what might be a fantastic business idea to Mr A might be a poor choice for Mr B and not even an option to Mr C.

     However, don’t get things twisted; we also understand that to make business success, it is not just about the ideas rather making those ideas to work. So in today’s business world, developing sound business ideas with capital is just the price of entry into the playing field. But surviving, thriving, innovating, excelling and leading in this new competitive reality will require us to build on our sound business ideas. It requires one to incorporate sound business principles and practices. It requires us to benchmark against world-class excellence in our choosing business areas. These are on a higher plane or dimension. It may require us to tap from our human genius and motivations. It may require a new mind-set, a new business skill-set, a new toolset or even a new set of habits. 

     Going forward, a problem point is timing. In business, it is critically important. There are many factors responsible for why businesses succeed, and one of the biggest one seems to be timing. A sound idea that appears before the market is ready for it can fizzle out despite its huge potential. Imagine a piece of technology that consumers aren’t ready for like Google Glass. Another wrong move is intensifying the marketing of your unique brand of umbrella during the dry season. Both ideas, though strong and with great potential, get squashed. Similarly, an idea that comes too late, once consumers have already had their fill or moved into another season or trend will fail to have some impact. Timing the release of your business in that sweet spot is crucial to success.

     Another problem point to highlight is the need for a business coach because on paper does not always translate to real life. Hopefully, you will have a sound business idea perfect and peculiarly made for you and you also have a good business plan. Business plans are where you flesh out the details of your enterprise, from who’s going to buy your product or patronize your service to when you plan on launching and at what point you will become profitable. In theory, the numbers may support your plans; your idea may seem like it will work. But sometimes, real life doesn’t always work the way it “should” on paper. As I was taught in business school, scenarios might arise; your customers may not be as interested as they seemed during your market research. Your cost basis may not be as tight and predictable as when you put your plan together. These unpredictable cases are normal risk factors to consider in starting a business.

      Next on the business problem points is that circumstances may change. One constant in business is change. One needs to understand that business environments never remain static. New technologies are constantly developed, trends come and go and economies fluctuate between times of frugality and fear. The truth is sometimes, the circumstances in which your business emerges might be different from the circumstances you faced mere months into your business existence. 

On the personal level, I have learned that successful businesses are not those that took an idea, adopted it, and then kept it static for years. They are the ones that took an idea and allowed it to change and develop as new circumstances emerged. Truly, great business ideas are flexible ideas and allow entrepreneurs to develop them over time as circumstances changes.

     On a final note, if you have a great business idea and you are interested in starting your own business; don't let any of these problem points dissuade you. You may doubt yourself and your ability to do so, but I want you to know of my deep conviction that you can start your enterprise today. You have the potential within you. And when you run your business, you become the creative force of your life. You become more responsible, more accountable and create a new world you will live.

The business opportunities in this book is a zero sum and the information it contains is worth its weight in gold.
It analyzes unique business opportunities in 20 major industry in Nigeria and help one find business opportunity that fits one's passion, talents, skill sets, capacity and resources.
It covers unique business opportunities in Automobile, Real Estate, Tourism, Health, Solid Minerals, Agriculture, Entertainment, Fashion, Art & Craft, Sports, Education, Security, Processing, ICT, Oil & Gas, Finance, Essential Services, Electronics, Transportation & Logistics etc.
In addition, there is inclusive over 100 source of business capital sources and funding options.
This time calls for multiple streams of income because the truth is most families are struggling with a single source of income. This book will help you to escape this rat race often bedeviled by financial distress. If you have anything to do with business, it is the perfect book to pick up from the bookstore.


We started with the pain of a prospective entrepreneur. We have also explored the fundamental problem causing the pain. Now, let us set the context for the solution in a way called solution points. The overriding purpose of this book is to give you a broad business ideas and a road map that will lead you from such pain and frustration to true success, fulfillment, relevance, significance and contribution in today’s new business environment. The solutions lie in taking a foothold on universal business principles and practices. It also involves benchmarking against world-class excellence and standards in business processes.

     The first solution point of a prospective entrepreneur is to develop a sound business idea. A sound business idea is an economic opportunity that is within the reach of the individual and can provide him with a desirable value. The importance of a sound business idea cannot be overemphasized. A prospective entrepreneur who is well-grounded in the concept of a good business idea will be able to save time, money and effort. When developing a business idea, timing is of the essence and one should pick an idea that fits into one’s passions, goals, strengths, resources, and tolerance for risk. Proceed to evaluate the opportunity thoroughly like an investor in an objective and analytical way. Try as much as possible to get feedback by finding people who know the market, the business model, the competitors and predecessors; people who have been there, done that and can help you understand what works and what doesn’t in the real world and your peculiar environment.

     Also, I will advise a blue ocean strategy or a radical shift in your organization and thinking from red to blue oceans. In business, a blue ocean strategy is a way to find and invest in an uncontested, growing markets called blue oceans and avoid overdeveloped, saturated markets called ‘’red oceans’’. When you invest in a blue ocean idea, you will gain a blue ocean effect; it means more success, fewer risks and an increased profit. In a corporate sense, blue ocean challenges companies to push the boundaries of their industries and offer consumers something of immense value. Imagine standing apart from the competition. Imagine achieving rapid, profitable growth and imagine creating a leap in value at a lower cost. Everybody will want this idea. You might even think this is the ultimate solution point. It sounds so good.

     The solution point of the issue of finance lies in us. You might be thinking that financial struggles we see around us and that derail us from starting our business or expanding the ones we have started are beyond rescue, but what if I tell you that there is great hope in turning this around. What if that hope lies in you. To digress, let us take a quote from Albert Einstein who said, ‘’the significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.’’ Hence, we should break our old financial habits if we are to turn things around. We should own our financial weakness and generate the necessary capital we need for our business. Take time to take a look at 60-90 days of all your spending and a picture of your financial priorities will emerge. You can find an accountability partner who can ask you tough questions. You can also explore your creative talents by setting small achievable goals. You determine the most urgent problems you need to solve and make a plan to tackle it head-on. In addition, reject all debt and think long term and with effective financial management, you will raise the necessary funds you need.

     Continuing on the solution points, I think most of our problem points needed us to change our thinking. In other words, we should make a paradigm shift from our previous ways; mind-set, skillset, habits, etc. One thing I have learned in life is that if one wants to make minor, incremental changes and improvement, we work on our practices, behavior or attitude but if we want to make a significant, quantum improvement, then we work on paradigms. To explain further, a paradigm is a perception, assumption, a theory, a frame of reference or lens through which we view the world.

     Take the case of poor and inadequate business skills for example. The importance of developing the right business skills cannot be overemphasized. Skills such as technical and managerial skills can make the difference between the successful and profitable enterprise and the unsuccessful ones. It is very vital in this modern era of globalization and tight competition. To improve business skills, one needs to develop his vocabulary, read business-related material, watch business-oriented programs and by consistent practice. In a more specific sense, various business skills to learn and master include delegation skills, negotiation skills, strategic planning, leadership skills, and team-building skills. Others include analytical skills, sales and marketing skills, general management skills, cash flow, and time management skills. Honestly, one needs to translate his passion into practical business endeavors.

     Another problem point I highlighted earlier on is that on paper analysis does not always translate to real life and that circumstances may change. Yes, that is true but every situation is unique and different in some way. But in another sense, at bottom, challenges and problems are very similar. The key does not lie in the circumstance; rather it lies in the space between those circumstances and our response to it. We have freedom of choice. It is our fundamental human gift from birth. You may do a cost-benefit analysis of the problem and decide to do something different. If we use sound business principles, we will not just empower ourselves, we will also achieve our goal and objectives in both the short and long term.

     On a final note, as a nation, we should understand that our entrepreneurship problems can be solved, our challenges can be defeated and our goals can be met. Already, Nigeria is measured to be a developing market by the world bank. It has been acknowledged as a regional influence on the African continent, a middle power in International affairs, an emerging global power. It is also a fellow of the MINT group of countries, which are commonly seen as the globe’s next ‘’BRIC-like’’ economies, registered among the ‘’Next Eleven’’ economies set to become among the biggest in the world, a member of common wealth of nations, the African union, OPEC member and united nations. And In addition, by being proactive and responsive to the need of the people and by initiating sound and supportive entrepreneurship programs, we will not just have created a financial future for our people but we will be building on a solid foundation for a more prosperous nation and our country will become a model of entrepreneurship practice among comity of nations.

I think there should be a meeting point or a way of bringing people who has business ideas and no capital and Angel investors who fund businesses. I know a lot of people who has business ideas but they have nobody to fund it, so if there is a way of linking them up with investors maybe for a share of the business will be great.

Anyone who aspires to happiness and fulfilment from business should have a copy of this resource in his bookshelf.

The second reason I will recommend this book and advice people to take a copy is because of our peculiar situation in Nigeria. This time calls one to create multiple stream of income because the truth is that most families are struggling to make ends meet with a single source of income.

------ Mathew Chikezie Ndukwe (IT  Professional) (Afrihub Nigeria)

Auto means cars, 4-wheel drive that is no longer moves by a horse but rather a self propelling engine. There is business in automobile. Over the years, since invention, business opportunities has ben created in this industry. The future is pleasant as the industry is still opening up with lots of inventions. It is a large industry. It is a huge industry indeed not because it covers the automobile, locomotive and aviation industry but because a lot of people have found business opportunities and are willing to put more seed.
A large industry is a real industry. An automobile industry is a real industry as you can see with a lot of scientists and engineers, working hard to achieve precision and to ensure we enjoy the ultimate comfort and safety. Now, some cars are built to smoothy run on electricity and some on water alone and nothing more.
You will want the world to be achieving progress but the cost of this is service. You can choose to render service or create a product that will solve people’s problem and make the world a more beautiful place.
And now, more than ever, the business opportunities available in the automobile industry is vast as new people at distant places, putting their seed, exploiting these opportunities and achieving breakthrough some never even thought was possible. But let me inform you that the business opportunities available in the automotive industry ranges from low start-up capital to capital intensive businesses. For example, it is cheaper to start a car wash business but very expensive to set up a car manufacturing and assembling plant or even a airline service business. Can you begin to see there is business opportunities for everybody in the automotive industry, no matter their financial status.
Going forward, if you are thinking of this industry and are looking to start something in this line, but have no idea of what it should be, I will encourage you to consider the ideas below.

S/N Business Ideas Description Remarks
1. Auto Body Repair And Spray Painting
It is normal for car owners to carry out body works on their cars whenever they are involved in minor and major accidents. Auto body work business is a thriving and profitable business and if you are interested in starting an auto service related business, then one of your options is to open an auto body repair workshop. Please note that you would need to learn the trade before you can successfully launch this type of business.
Another profitable business an entrepreneur who is interested in starting a business in the automotive industry is automobile spraying and branding business. When the body of a car is worked upon or when there is a dent or patch on car, there is likelihood that the owner may want to have the body of the car re-sprayed, in order for the car to look new and presentable.

The best time to start is now. There are vest opportunities in the agricultural sector. For those who have been looking for profitable business to invest, I am bringing you good news. The demand for agricultural products both in Nigeria and in the world is witnessing a positive trend not just because of the numerous opportunities it present but because it is an essential sector central to the basic needs of man.
Agricultural businesses are the most lucrative business in the world; low start-up cost, manageable working capital and opportunity to turn out huge profit of up to 100%. With increase in unemployment, mechanization and improved varieties and breeds, young people are now embracing agriculture which was considered a dirty business only for the poor.
Now, with approximately 50% of Nigerians as urban dwellers and at least 24 cities having a population of more than 100,000, it has surely created a business opportunity in food supply. This trending challenge and the impact of rural-urban migration have continued to generate hot debates since the last three decades. Urban employment problems are a result of the phenomenal growth in urbanization and the inability of these urban centers to be able to utilize or absorb the urban labour created through the process of urbanization.
Agricultural business is a profitable business which can be started with little or no training. You don’t need any degree to start, though you may need to spend some time learning about the business. Most of the products are seasonal; they can be bought at a lower price during the season, stored and then sold at a higher price when they are out of season.
On the personal level, I cannot say enough the positive benefit I have derived over the years being a player in this industry. Its numerous opportunities can get one excited. When you think investment, you think agricultural business. You get engaged, and become a part of a vibrant workforce, you leave your classrooms and office rooms to begin a new lesson, and you build wealth by creating your own business and contribute to the economy of your nation.

Abattoir & Meat Selling Business:- Abattoir is a place designed for slaughtering animals, preparing and producing meat and animal products for human consumption and other usage. Running a private abattoir is still a goldmine yet to be tapped. Abattoir can be run on a small to large depending on available capital. Common animals being slaughtered in abattoirs include; Cattle, Sheep, Goats and Pigs. Anyone going into this business should not only produce but add value to the products. Processing is simply the future of agriculture.
The common meat butcher in the open market buys a cow worthN80,000 or N100,000 and sells it in pieces making at least N150,000 or more”
He continued by giving detail analysis;
1Kg of Beef in Open market is N1, 000.
The smallest adult cattle weighs minimum of 180kg live weight. After dressing, (removing the blood, bone, hide, intestine foods), it will remain minimum of 75% live weight.
75% of 180kg =135kg, Dressed weight.
Since 1kg = N1, 000, therefore, 135kg =N135, 000.
Some other revenue will also come from sale of Blood, Bone, Hides and ‘assorted meat’. ‘Assorted meat’ isN1, 400/kg. A cow has a minimum of 10kg ‘assorted meat’.

Avocado Pea Farming, Sales and Distribution Business:-
Avocado farming in Nigeria has the potential to make you a lot of money if only you can have the patience. This is not one of those get rich quick business ventures that you can just stroll into. Very few people in Nigeria understand the profit potential of the avocado farming business, hence the reason for the few avocado farmers.

Avocado farming will not only give your money on the local front, but it also commands a high exchange rate internationally. It is actually called the “green gold” for the high exchange rates it on the internal market. You should know that even with the favorable climate and abundant water supplies in Nigeria, there are few avocado farmers. Investing in avocado farming business on the long-term will be a great agribusiness venture for you in Nigeria.

The Profitability Of Avocado Farming Business In Nigeria.
This is to douse any fears you might have concerning the profit potential of avocado farming business in Nigeria. An acre of an avocado farm has the capacity to generate between N2.8million-N5.4million. Research has shown that the importation of avocado into the European countries has doubled. This tells you that the demand for avocado on the international market is really on the increase. As it stands now, the European countries mostly import avocado from Kenya, Peru, Mexico, and Chile.
With the current high demand for avocado in the international market, you should consider investing or starting an avocado farming business. For the local market, avocado pear is also very profitable and you really need to pay attention to it.

Standard Canopy Benefits

Renters, leasees, employees, and guest feel more secure and protected when their vehicles are parked under a shade canopy that is also well lit at night.

The purpose of a car Port company is to serve the clients and not to drain their pockets. The best carport builders focus on delivering quality work to the customer. Their customer service officers talk fluent languages and are friendly with the customers. They know the right way to deal with an arrogant client without raising their voice upon them. Customer stick with a company because of the services they get not the structure of the company.


Chemical Importation Business

This is a great business opportunity importing industrial chemicals such as pine oil, phenol, natrosol, caboxyl methyl cellulose, menthol crystals, chloroxynol, sodium lauryl ether and titanium dioxide. They are used for the production of fast moving products, like disinfectants, soap, germicide, cosmetics, tooth paste, tooth powder and medicated powder. These chemicals are used by big manufacturing companies in large volume as well as small and medium scale industries, the demand is endless. 98% of the chemicals used in production in Nigeria are imported. The project gives a good profit margin and 90% of the money can be recovered within 4 months.

You can import between three to four times in a year. You will also supply to companies as well as distributors. Some pay immediately while some pay within 1 week, 2 weeks or in a month. We are sure to get 80% of the money back, within 2 months. The project is very viable because the chemicals are always in demand and we can launch in a month.You can import the chemicals from china.


There is no sole importer for in industrial chemicals in Nigeria, anybody can apply to NAFDAC and if you meet the requirements, you will be given approval to import the chemicals. Youcan sell at a lower price than your competitors to win the market and you can give your suppliers flexible payment terms.

Deal In Soft Drinks

Soft Drink Business works in Nigeria, given the appetitive nature of a typical Nigerian who loves to party and drink even to the detriment of his pocket. So, capitalizing on this, you can make so much money selling or distributing soft drinks to parties, weddings, ceremonies, club meetings, shows and events, and even homes in Nigeria, either part-time or full-time.

(1) Make Money Running A Bar

Being the owner of a bar is one way to generate cool money from the business of selling drinks. Generally, bars sell alcoholics, but soft drinks are also sold as supplementary drinks.

So, if you wish to run soft drink business in a bar, understand that it comes as an additional aspect of the business. This means you must already be running a bar. It does not make sense to open a bar solely for the purpose of selling soft drinks. If you do, you may have very low patronage as the majority of people coming to a bar are in search of alcoholics, and not necessarily soft drinks. The exception to this is if you make it clear that your bar sells majorly Soft drinks, and not necessarily alcohol.

(2) Make Money Selling/Distribution Soft Drinks In Bulk

The other aspect of this business is the bulk sales and/or distribution. If you must run it successfully, then it is recommended that you get a deep freezer, different brands of drinks and a generator set.

Chilled drinks will surely attract lots of customers. This business is very viable because of the hot nature of Nigeria’s weather. Passers-by and people in your locality will always come around to get cold drinks because of the hot weather.

(3) Make Money Setting Up A Soft Drink Depot

If you have a drink depot too you can get lots of drinks which you’d retail to customers in need of them. This aspect of the business entails that the drinks are supplied by companies to your depot and from there to your customers/clients.


Distribution And Sale Of Treated Water

Everybody needs water. Homes, offices, at parties and other occasions. It even becomes more in demand during dry season when lots of wells dry up and people’s desire for satchet water increases. The business of producing purified water such as pure water otherwise known as satchet water is one of the most lucrative business that is thriving very well even in this current economy.This is not a business that loses trend because People will continue to need water and food to survive, so, you can never run short of customers. That being said, there are also exceptions to the rule. You can run at a loss when you do the right business the wrong way.

Buying of the Wrong Machines:

People are very sensitive to defects in water, it’s something that concerns their health, and nobody jokes with such things. That is why your purification systems, packaging and distribution should be free of defects. Just one silly mistake in these areas can destroy your reputation and discourage people from buying from you.


These are things that could happen when your system and tools are defective.

You Start seeing foreign materials and sediments in the products

The water develops unpleasant taste

After production leakages and spillage becomes too much causing waste

Coliform levels increase

Water Odour

Occurrence of Reverse osmosis issues (This is problem in the purification system)


NAFDAC Registration Mistakes

NAFDAC frowns at many practices in the pure water production business. Not knowing the rules can get you into trouble and lead to the close down of your business. Imagine spending money on all the equipment, renting or building the factory etc and end up tying all that capital down indefinitely.

Poor Management and Bypassing of Consultants

Employing the wrong staff is a cancer that slowly eats up your profits without you knowing it. They ruin your business and move to the next. Some of these workers are serial business killers moving from one business to the other, causing losses everywhere. the earlier you identify them and kick them out, the better for you and your business.


Printing And Book Production

With the many technological advances that have come with computers and the Internet, it is easier than ever before to start and run your own publishing business. Knowing how to start a publishing business, and the steps involved in taking a book from idea to publication is an important way to communicate ideas with the world.

But before you begin thinking about what to publish, you’ll need to know how to publish.

And knowing which category your company will fall under can help you plan out your business.

Trade publishers are publishing companies that deal with industry-specific publications. This category includes the major, well-established publishing houses that put out the majority of fiction in the marketplace.

Textbook publishers primarily deal with academic learning materials. Books published by textbook publishing companies will be primarily bought and used by students.

Scholarly/academic publishers tend to include university presses and not-for-profit publishers. Although this category is lumped in with academic publications, scholarly/academic publishers do not typically publish textbooks.

Reference publishers put out books and other learning materials that build on a body of information. The most common example of a reference publication is a dictionary or thesaurus, but can include many other non-traditional forms of information dissemination. Self-publishers are authors who choose to take the reigns on how their own work is published.


Choose a market.

There are many existing book publishers, small and large, in operation around the world.

The key to success as you think about starting your own publishing business is to decide upon a primary genre and corresponding market for your books. Knowing what market you intend to work in will help you when it comes time to draft a business model.


Try to start out with a narrow focus.

It’s best to work within one or two primary genres or markets.

If you try to start too big, it may be difficult to manage your company, and potential authors may lose interest if it seems as though the company lacks direction.


Consider working in a market you know.

If you have any kind of background in a given market, whether it’s through formal education, work or intern experience, or even personal interest,you may find your business more successful in than market than if you tried to jump into unfamiliar waters. You will likely be more dedicated to and passionate about your business working in a market you’re familiar with, and you will bring some level of knowledge or familiarity to the table. 


Understand your audience.

This is where working in a familiar market can be exceptionally helpful. And may take some planning if you’re working in an unfamiliar market.


Think about trade publications. The publishers of those publications know what the intended audience will want to read and learn about, and the publishers also know where potential readers look for that information. Tapping into that kind of knowledge may drastically improve the chances of success, and could even give you some contacts as you launch your publishing company.


Choose a name for your publishing company.

It can be simple and concise or catchy and clever.

But it should be a name you will feel comfortable using for the foreseeable future.

If you have a marketing and/or legal team, consult with those workers on a list of names you come up with.


Register your name.

If you’re using a name for your publishing company other than your own name.

You’ll need to be sure that that name is not already taken.

One way to do this is by filing a fictitious business name statement, or a doing business as (DBA) name.


Buy an ISBN number.

ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number, usually included with the bar code on virtually every single book sold through a bookstore.

Expect to spend around 125-150k in Nigeria on your ISBN, though discounts usually exist for publishers who purchase ISBNs in bulk quantities.

ISBNs are important because they help buyers and sellers identify your publishing business as the publisher of a given book.

Block Industry

Block making (commonly called block industry) business can be a very profitable venture.  It is funny to me that some people still think that block making is a vocation for the uneducated and unskilled.  To the contrary, it is a lucrative business that can be scaled to become a large employer of labour.  Whether you are a school dropout, a graduate, a professional or a retiree looking for profitable business to engage in; block making is a venture to consider.

The block industry is growing rapidly, why? The simple reason is rising population and increasing housing needs.

The exact cost vary due to factors like location and your own sourcing abilities. Below is a list of items you need.

1. Land
Most Block Industry owners do not own the land they work from. It mostly belongs to farmers who they pay a lease to.
Make sure you are close to a water source like river,stream or water way or dig a well. Water is the life blood of the business. Do not
under any circumstance entertain the idea of buying water or the business will crash before it takes of!

You need a Lister engine. These are very expensive, so you want to source for the most affordable you can find.This normally means 
travelling out of town to buy one.
You need a moulding machine. This is what shapes your blocks. These are made to order by local manufacturers.
You need a Water Pumping Machine(Looks like a small generator) This brings in water from your source.

3. Materials
You need wooden pallets.This is where your blocks stay to dry out after moulding.Bought from local makers. Start with a few hundred pieces 
(200-500 pieces).
You need also
1 x Wheel Barrow
2 x Shovels
2 x Metal drums(To house water for your machines during moulding.)
2 x Security chains to secure items when you leave site.

You have two options. Buy wood from the market and ask a carpenter to construct a small hut for you. Alternatively and more expensively
you can buy a disused shipping container and convert. This is to store your items like unused bags of cement when you leave for the day.
5. Daily operation
It's profitable depending on a few factors.
Location: For obvious reasons
Season: During rainy season construction all over the country slow down meaning less need to buy blocks and less business.
Inflation: When a bag of cement rises or falls it affects your ability to mold and customers ability to build or buy blocks for doing so.
Capital: The business is very cash intensive. Every thing you do you will have to pay upfront whilst waiting for sale to recoup cost and profit.

Civil Engineering

The construction industry is singlehandedly responsible for the enhancement of infrastructures worldwide. A country or city’s development can be linked to the role civil engineers play in terms of construction of sky scrapers, shopping malls, office complexes and a host of others.

If you are a civil engineer and would love to dabble into business, the following are 50 business ideas you can select from. For civil engineers, this is one of the most common businesses to begin. You can carry out the registration of your construction company in order to start. Becoming successful in this business, aside from knowing how to deliver quality work, would require remarkable networking skills with individuals who have the capacity to provide you with remarkable construction projects.

Starting a construction company if you have the required know-how can be a remarkable business venture.


Facility Management Services

Property management which is a subset of the real estate industry is perhaps one of the easiest and affordable real estate business to start; it is basically about lease contracting or accepting rent using legal documents approved for the area in which the property is located. In a nutshell, property management companies are responsible for taking care of and managing buildings and other real estate properties for individuals (landlords) or for groups of owners.

No doubt, if an aspiring entrepreneur who intends starting his or her own property management business has the right connections, networks, managerial skills, and takes delight in managing real estate for clients, then he or she is going to find property management business very rewarding and lucrative.
