Most of us have that perception that it is difficult to open a business. Well, that is partly true. Of course, with any business, you have to put in your time, effort, resources, and being into whatever business endeavor you decide to take on. You don’t just open the next thing business you think of without proper planning or it will be bound to fail sooner rather than later. But do not let these fears and worries stop you from going out of your comfort zone and realizing your dreams because you will never really know unless you try, no matter how cliché it seems. Sometimes, a little common sense can go a long way and it is something you should never lose regardless of whatever stage you are in planning or implementing your business goals.

You have to extra careful if you are a novice in the field. Experience can definitely help you trudge on this unfamiliar path more confidently. If it is your first time to start any sort of business, you can always learn from other people’s experience and spare yourself from all the misfortune of costly business mistakes. And now that the holidays are almost here, it is the perfect opportunity to dabble in the field of business. People have more cash to burn and they are definitely in a more generous mood. Those with an entrepreneurial spirit can easily make lots of money. You can sell stuff for gifts, sell food, or whatever you can think of that will be a likely hit this holiday season. A big capital is not even mandatory. You can start with whatever money you have on hand and take it from there.

We all dream of having a better life for ourselves and our loved ones. To do this, we can either find a job or start our own business. 

Working for a company is how most people support themselves. But people should also try their hand at building a business. 

If you want to get into business, there’s no better time than now. Take advantage of the Christmas season. 

We are just a few days away from Christmas and the holiday season provides lots of opportunities for enterprising individuals to earn extra, from making kakanin, crafts, Christmas decorations to children’s toys. Dozens of bazaars are all over the place these days. 

As I have often said, you don’t need to start big, especially if you don’t have enough capital to start with. 


You don’t even have to give up your current work in order to be able to do business although, for some who intends to do it full-time, you may need to focus solely on making money by selling or doing business and resign from your job altogether. There are risks but it is yours to take. It depends on how well you think your business will fare that you would risk losing your main source of bread and butter for something that may very well be temporary. One thing you should bear in mind is not to give your all unless you are 100% sure that success will soon be in your hands. So, why not give it a test-try this Christmas and enjoy not just the holiday cheer but profits from all the sales you have made.

And no starting point is too small, either. Starting a business is easier than ever thanks to technology and social media. Long gone are the days of an entrepreneur having to rent out a brick and mortar store and advertise in the Yellow Pages. Now, folks can set up shop by creating a mobile-friendly website and snapping a few pictures of their products, and social media allows entrepreneurs to reach more people than ever before. There are websites and apps dedicated to linking small business owners to new clients, such as the Official Black Wall Street app, which helps Black-owned businesses gain exposure to over 116 million users.


You don’t need to create something extraordinary to enjoy a slice of today’s market. Just know who your target market is and whether that void has already been filled in your community. Even if there is already an existing business that offers what you want to do, you can still provide something else that they don’t like more affordable products or services, better customer service, or some freebies of sorts. There is always a chance for your business to shine if you just know how to look outside of the box, find the right associations, and come up with more ingenious ideas that can crack your target customers into switching to your business instead. Don’t wait for next year to take the first steps. Now is the best time to start planning so you start the year right and you can still take advantage of the holiday rush to make the initial profits you might need in backing up your business.
