During your training. Things you should concentrate are:
Better business location.
After 8 months or more training, by now you could have been good In this business, next is to look for a better location to open your shop.
I recommend busy communities, school, environment, public bus stop.
Even if you did not see block shop, construct a solid caravan that is transferrable in case you want to change location.
You may be wondering about how much capital to start this business, as for me i started with just 5k. let me explain.
after i left the training ground, they was no money for me to startup my own shop and also by goods, i ran around yet no help.
What i did!
After few weeks i found a shop and begged the owner that i will be remitting part of shop rent every end of the week, and he agreed.
Then i hard only 5k. I went and bought my soldering iron, soldering past, led, screws, charging ports, mouth piece , extension .
No money yet to buy accessories, so as time goes on, i was able to gather some money for accessories to stock my shop.
Don’t waste any time,immediately you freed try and open your own, because the more time you waste, you will be out of updates about what your learnt.
Even if you don’t have a enough capital, try and borrow little from friends and family member.
