2)Sale of Mobile Phone Accessories

 

This is a very lucrative business in Nigeria today. With as little as N50,000 saved , you are good to go. While you will do well by renting space if you have the money, this business can also be done in mobile fashion i.e. by carrying your products to places they are needed.

In this case, you have to first identify your market and feed them with their needs. You can even partner with companies like this Samsung online store in Nigeria for easy market penetration.

3)Mobile Phone Repairs

This is a business idea that will fetch you good money if you are patient to learn how to repair and maintain mobile phones. With less than N50,000 you can start a phone repair and maintenance business in Nigeria.

All you need to start is a little training, a laptop, software tools, some regular home tools (screwdriver, soldering iron, brush, battery tester, etc.) and some marketing to let people know what you do. You will also need to develop good relationships with dealers of quality accessories. With as low as N5,000, you can purchase a repair kit from any eCommerce stores.

You will need to get some coaching from someone already doing the business, learn some recipes and develop a supply chain both for your raw materials (plantain) and finished products.

5)Ice block Production and Sale

When you talk about small business ideas in Nigeria, ice block production comes to mind. Nigeria is located within the tropical climate region with an abundance of sunlight and heat.

Unfortunately, the electricity supply is very poor, making it difficult for homes to maintain adequate stock of cold water in their refrigerators. This is what makes ice block production a money-spinning business in Nigeria.

People require ice blocks to keep their water and drink cold. Your market includes households around your neighbourhood, retail shops, restaurants and bars that need to keep their drinks ice-cold at all times.

The good thing about this business is that you can kick off with the little you have. You need a deep freezer as well as a medium-sized generator and you’re all set. As you make money, you can scale up by acquiring an ice block making machine. So, looking for a small business to do? It could be this.

6)Car wash

The need for car wash will always be on the rise and anybody can do this business irrespective of age.

With a little more capital, you can start a car wash that appeals to upwardly mobile individuals by setting up a sitting area decorated with a TV set where your customers will sit while their cars are being washed.

You can make it a multiple income stream business if you have space by adding the sale of drinks, shawarma, etc at the sitting area.

The critical things needed for a car wash business is the space that can be rented, source of water and the washing machine.

7)Rental Services

People constantly need things that they do not possess. Some of the things you can start contracting out includes chairs, canopies, vacuum cleaners, cutleries, cooking utensils, music box, ladder, etc. Once you are known to be engaged in this business in your environment, you may not be able to meet demand.

If you have an interesting range of expensive gadgets or equipment, you might consider exploiting them for side income businesses hiring them out on hourly use basis. If the business gets going, you can add more items as you discover what people like renting. Prepare a leaflet, advertise in a local newspaper or use social media to announce your services.

8)Blogging

If you can write or have the capacity to learn how to write, start a blog. Blogging is a good way to make money online in Nigeria. All you need is internet access, good research skill, an interest, and a laptop and a lot of time. Your most important and perhaps expensive investment in a blogging career is your time.

Also, since you would want people to find your blog posts without manually promoting it all the time, you would need to learn how to optimize your posts for search engines like Google or hire the services of an SEO Expert in Lagos.

Set up a free blog with WordPress or Wix or if you have some money, set up your blog on self-hosted server; populate your blog with quality content, get people to read your content (drive traffic), get their confidence and monetize your blog with Google AdSense, display advert, affiliate marketing or sell information products such as ebooks, etc.

9)Gym Business

Fitness has always been a source of concern, and Nigerians have also caught the bug. This is because of the high rate of cancer that continues to ravage people.

If you are a fitness and health enthusiast, then you can look towards starting a gym-related business in Nigeria. You will need to have enough finance to equip your gym centre.

10)Tomato Farming Business

Agriculture offers one of the best cash chain investment in Nigeria today. This business is rewarding, and at the same time, not expensive to start up.

As the cover star, Biden, 70, is seen in grins as she poses from the White House balcony, shot by Annie Leibovitz.

In the new issue, which would be out July 20, Dr. Biden addressing the magazine (FLOTUS), discusses about the numerous drives she needs to handle during her husband Joe Biden’s administration.

Published

By

Footwear or shoes in general are part of what makes our dressing and outfit complete and perfect. Especially in a business environment like the office the type of shoes we rock is very important because firstly it has to be very comfy. Today on almaplusblog, we will be checking out some casual business shoes for guys.

There’s no denying that shoes can have a huge impact on the overall appearance of any outfit. So, when you’re aiming for a specific dress code, carefully considered footwear is essential. For business casual attire, that means picking a pair of shoes that appear both stylishly relaxed and suitably corporate. Thankfully, there are several styles which you can always rely on to give your everyday office wear the easygoing polish it demands. Add a pair of each of these business casual shoes to your work wardrobe, and you’ll never be over or under dressed again.

So here are 7 business casual wear every man should own.

1. Loafers

If you don’t already own a smart pair of loafers, it’s time to add some to your collection. These slip-on, laceless shoes are an essential item for any man and can easily be adapted to a business casual setting. To do so, try rocking a pair of brown or black leather loafers with chinos and a button-up business shirt. Just remember to keep your shirt tucked in and add a matching belt to ensure a suitably polished appearance for the office.

2. Oxford Shoes

A lot of men make the mistake of thinking Oxford shoes can only be worn for formal occasions. However, that’s simply not true. When styled correctly, Oxfords can suit a variety of occasions, including those that have a business casual dress code. To wear Oxfords to work, pick a pair in black or brown leather. To ensure you don’t appear overdressed, be sure to avoid patent designs. Of course, if you’re still feeling a little too formal, you can always opt for Oxford’s more casual cousin, the Derby.

3.Derby Shoes

The Derby is another classic dress shoe style and an excellent addition to any business casual wardrobe. Thanks to their timeless and minimal design, Derbies work great with a wide range of outfits. The key to making them look great in the office is to create balance with your outfit. To do so, try wearing classic leather styles with more relaxed ensembles and suede designs with more formal looks.

4.Monk Strap Shoes

The monk strap is sleek yet cool enough to take you from 9 to 5 and beyond. Their formal and sophisticated design ensures they’re appropriate for the office while their unique and stylish appeal also means they can work for after-work drinks and weekend events. When shopping for monk straps, we’d suggest going for a shiny leather design for a refined yet statement style.

4. Chelsea Boots

Boots may not be the first shoes that spring to mind when you think about business casual footwear. However, they can actually be incredibly stylish and comfortable and can create an effortlessly refined look. They feature a round toe with elastic sides and can slip on and off quickly without laces or a buckle. As such, they achieve a cleaner aesthetic than other boots.

6. Chukka Boots

Since booming onto the men’s fashion scene in the ’40s, Chukka boots have been a staple item for the business bro. Chukkas are a round-toe, ankle boot, with two or three lacing eyelets. Traditionally featuring just two panels, these are minimal and professional shoes that are still stylish enough to add an element of casual cool to your corporate attire. We’d suggest a suede pair in a muted color such as tan or beige. Pair them with your favorite skinny or boot cut jeans or chinos and a polo or short sleeve button down. For the colder months, these shoes also work great with sports coats and casual trenches.

7. Dress Boots

Casual clothing and street-wear have been slowly creeping into the business world for some time now, so you shouldn’t shy away from adding an edgy pair of dress boots to your rotation. They can be a great way to let your personality shine through while keeping your look professional. From Chelsea and chukka styles to brogue and Derby designs, there is a lot of variety, so you shouldn’t struggle to find a pair to suit your style and dress code needs. Dress boots traditionally come in black, brown, and tan. However, other colors are available. We’d suggest going for a muted shade and styling them with a slick pair of chinos, jeans, or trousers.
