This is you?
if yes? lets talk…
welcome back to ,my blog and i am Aderonke Olubanjo, the Principal instructor of a leading Fashion College in Nigeria, an EDI (Entrepreneurship Development Institute) for the Central Bank of Nigeria under the AGSMEIS scheme, i am also a Unisex Fashion Designer – cap with many feathers right? well, it all started one day and with just one step too.
I get asked a lot of times about how i started, well, i started with just 1 step. when people say they started from zero, i pause to think, really? nah… we just call zero like that, its not really zero, everyone of us started with one step, it could look like nothing to you, but you bet it, its 1.
it could be as small as a decision, an interest, a thought, a plan, a wish or even something you like about someone. That’s your step 1. I started with that step 1 too. if i did, you can too.
If you are thinking about starting your own business now, no matter what field it is, let me just drop some few tips for today.
What practical steps have you taken to analyze the problems in your field? the problems are there, and you will need to look at them critically. How can you solve them? if you only look at the juicy parts of the business, when the cloudy days come, they will shake your stand.
Have you also sat to ask yourself how much exactly you will need to start the business?
if you have a mapped out vision board, this is where it comes to play.
what does your dream business look like? I strongly believe in the “Big Picture” If you don’t have it, your focus might be shifting here and there.
The Big Picture guides your steps as you build the business from day one, it makes the navigation easier.
WHERE SHOULD I LOCATE MY BUSINESS?
let me just say – Where you are wanted / needed.
don’t put your business where the competition is too tight or choky and unhealthy.
You need a good plan that is practicable. not some adopted resources that works for someone abroad, can it work in our own business environment?
Don’t rely on resources alone, can it work where you are?
Are you ready to give it all it takes. the ride has not been smooth and jolly for me, nor any other business owner you know. It takes a lot to start and a lot more to run it.
