Many would be Investors and Entrepreneurs look for simple and risk free businesses they can venture into and earn decent income on a regular basis. Others may not know the right business to do. More simply go into business others have already started and are achieving success on.
I would not advise anyone to invest his Capital in a business venture simply because his friend or relation did a similar business and attain success from it. Because the skill, knowledge and expertise such a business requires that ensured your Neighbour’s success might be lacking in you.
You need to be fully prepared – physically, mentally and financially before you think of developing a business. You need to understand that its important for you to have a specific business idea and must have carried out a holistic feasibility study on the business you intend going into.
You also need to be aware of the regulations and conditions governing the industry your business would be as there may be various licenses, permits, environmental and governmental policies that must be met before some particular businesses can begin operations.
Doing all of the aforementioned may still not guarantee your success in your new enterprise, but should go a long way in providing the right platform for the business to grow even in the midst of initial challenges that it may experience.
