    initially my business idea was a traditional brick and mortar marketing business where i also took commision on sales. i have wanted to do this for many years but never have. i have decided today i wont be doing this anymore as the risks involved are too high. the capital needed is vast and there are alot of components to the business that i still dont think i even understand and that could go wrong. and i just dont want to do it any more. ive always loved the idea though but it also means slow growth and no freedom to travel the world.

    so i have decided to go back into the online world where the opportunites and possibilites are endless and the risk is so much less.

      @ikpeme I would think it's important to first know what kind of business you want to start. In the beginning it can be a lot of work so I personally believe you need to do something you will keep doing even when it's tough.... So what are your interests and what are you able to do...? Do you need to learn more (read a book, youtube, school....?) How much money do you have as a start? Do you need to raise money or take a loan? Do you need space at home and/or do you need a webpage? Can you do it alone or do you need to get help from friends or hire people?

    i know exactly what i want to do, been wanting to do it for years but put it off due to lack of resources, finances, knowledge and confidence. but i am still determined to do it. alot of people have talent but no motivation. alot of people have motivation but not enough talent or knowhow. but they find a way to make it happen. figure it out, be resourceful. get help from family, friends, trusted advisors and learn as much as possible. there is no failure in trying. the only failure is when u give up. i wont give up on this dream of mine. i can make it happen despite my fears. feel the fear and go for it as long as i have planned and prepared as much as i can and sought the advice of others. also figure out the financial side of things. i want this so bad.

      @Inspire I'd recommend first getting in touch with an accountant or a lawyer - they can suggest the best way to set up your business so you don't incur taxes or liability.

      At the same time, if there are others in the business who won't be your competitors (say, in a different city), contact them and ask them what things that they did.

      Both of those are things I'm doing now.
