This question has been the undoing of many as it has put an untimely end to their dreams. If you are confused as to how or where to start from, you need not to think too far, where you are is the best place to start. You don’t need more capital than you have now to start now, all you need is all you have and all you have is all you need, you need nothing more and nothing less!

The Art of Starting a Business
Many young people in the world today have one thing or the other that they have in their mind and actually wish to start but they do not know how to, I want to quickly show you few steps to take in starting something in order to earn or increase your income;
- Know what you really want to do: I mean you need to be clear about the kind of job or business you are going into. Make sure it is something you love and are passionate about, go into something you are skilled with or have knowledge about. The first step to starting anything in life is clarity about what you really want to know and it must be something you are passionate and excited about.
- Decide on your customers and connect with them; Think of places people gather and see them as potential customers. Focus on your neighborhood, your church, or families or your sport team. Make a list of neighbors, friends, teachers, your parent’s friends and e.t.c. It is time you begin to think like a buyer and not a seller to know where and how to connect with those buyers.
- Conduct a market survey; Start by asking a few potential customers if they need your product and at what price they will be willing to buy. Marketing research is important because it helps you to know your potential customers and their feel about your product or service and from there you can speculate how it will perform in the market.
- Decide on price: from the market survey made, you should be able to set a fair price. You may get your first customer by under charging the competition. A person may charge half what other cleaners were paid and quickly had several customers. My candid advice is that your price should not be too high or low, just make it moderate. Location, class of people and cost are some factors that actually regulate price in business.
- Volunteer to do a few jobs for free: Learn to volunteer to offer free services for those organizations around your passion or vision in order to practice your skills and to build recommendation. Use the recommendations gotten from those jobs in your advertising or while applying for a contract. Volunteering helps to equip you and prepare you ahead of what you are about to go into, so search around for opportunities to serve.
- Launch your first advertising campaign: Try to use free advertising media such as emails, online-forums, Facebook posts, and handing out fliers to friends and neighbors, and be sure you include several ways of contacting you, including your email and phone numbers. Many people are actually very happy to hire people for short jobs, start advertising your micro business services now and be ready when the offer arrives.
It is time to start that dream of yours and don’t die with it like many others who did due to fear or several excuses, follow the steps listed and you will surely be able to start something and earn cool income from it.
