Nowadays everyone says you need entrepreneurship skills to survive in Nigeria, this is quite true and it also helps to start learning these skills from an early age, as it not only gives you more time, but you can learn as many of these skills as possible:
- Tailoring: Although it is a bit difficult to learn, tailoring is one of the most lucrative businesses in Nigeria as there are a lot of events that happen every single day in Nigeria. If you are very good at it, you won’t have a problem getting plenty of customers
- Barbing: I heard this is a very lucrative business in Nigeria, as Nigerian men and boys always need a haircut or a shave every day, especially if you start your business in an area that has little to no barbers, then get ready to make plenty of money.
- Catering: if you know how to cook, then catering might be a good fit for you. Keep in mind that you might need to go for one form of training or the other as cooking for a large group of people is definitely not the same as the regular type of cooking you do at home.
- Pastries: cakes, puff puff doughnut, etc., you can learn as many as you like depending on your budget, but if you’re good at making delicious pastries and you know how to market yourself, then you’re on the right track.
- Baking: Nigerians consume bread every day, if you have enough capital, you can open a small bakery in your area and begin selling your products there. If they taste good and are of good quality, then you are bound to make lots of profit.
- Digital skills: this is the last but beats all the ones listed above because you can do anything being tech-savvy. Digital skills range from coding, web design, graphics design, etc.
Other skills that you can learn as a Nigerian include hairdressing, carpentry, and woodwork, plumbing, etc.
