Some Ideas on starting a Business in Kenya

With the economic recession still staring us in the face, layoffs becoming a stark reality and job opportunities shrinking by the day, many people are considering turning into entrepreneurs, rather than looking for jobs in various multinationals. For becoming an entrepreneur, there are two very important things that are needed, i.e. capital and the right business idea. Looking at the state that most world economies and businesses are in today, it is very crucial to come up with an innovative business idea, which will be somewhat recession proof and will also give consistent returns. Suggested below are some of such “safer” business ideas. 

Entrepreneur Ideas for All 

Consultant: One of the best business ideas for both men and women is to become a consultant. This is however possible only if you are proficient in some skills such as marketing, advertising, public relations, etc. Also, for being a consultant, one requires lots of contacts and networking skills. So keep these prerequisites of the job in mind before taking up this venture. 

Tutor: If you love children and are master in any of the subjects taught at school, then you may contact a school or a home school group at the local level to check if they have a requirement for tutors. Tutoring is in fact one of the best businesses for women, considering that it leaves enough time for them to manage both family and work simultaneously. You can consider starting your own tuition classes from home. If you are good at painting, craft-making, singing or dancing, you can take hobby classes for the same as well.
