I have written about producing household items on this blog and I know that some people are not cut out to producing items but since my aim is to help someone achieve a goal in life, knowing fully that we all go to school to acquire knowledge, though we are not taught how to make and manage money except one decides to take extra courses on financial literacy. Which will, in turn, help you thrive in live if you are business minded.
Have you ever thought why most paid workers still do business? They want to make more money of course, and probably have a business they can fall back on in case they get fired by their employers as a result of recession or poor economic situations like the one we are presently experiencing in Nigeria.
I was talking with someone from the North, on business ideas and she told me that they have snails in her village but they don’t eat snails, not that they forbid it but they don’t know its value, and I believe there are other villages and towns in Nigeria that have one thing or the other that is common but scarce in other towns and villages. Goods are brought from the north to Lagos, Port Harcourt, warri and other parts of the country. I also know that people from some parts of the south – south and south – east produce palm oil which they can carry from there to the north and south – west yet it is often over looked. Palm oil is used in every home and as such it sells like crazy. Anyone interested can do it and make it big. Let’s look at palm oil business this way. Do you know that if you have the money, you can get a palm oil producing machine and produce the oil yourself in the south-south or south-east, store it during the dry season and sell it to marketers that buy from the south to other parts of the country or better still transport it yourself to other parts of the country for higher profit? Yes, especially during the rainy seasons when there is scarcity of oil.
In Bayelsa, ogbono is one product that is produced in large quantities and transported to other parts of the country.
Lagos state, because of the sea port has many companies producing and manufacturing goods. Most goods in Nigeria come through the Lagos sea port, so we see that goods are very cheap in price compared to other parts of the country. So if you are looking for business to do, buying goods from Lagos and selling them in other parts of the country is one business that can give you quick return on investment.
Buying goods from one part of the country to the other is a very lucrative business though it can be very tasking because of the long distance. But I think it’s worth the trouble.
So, if you are thinking of a business to start why not take a look at inter state business? It can be very lucrative you know…? Need more info this …… ?
