Social entrepreneurship ideas: 3 million people entering the labour market every day; 8.5% unemployment rate; 18.4% underemployment rate; 17.7 million people between 15-65 years old newly added to the hoard of unemployed scattered all around the country.
That is the story of Nigeria ‘the great’ in one sentence. That is how precarious the situation is; yet millions out there are still hoping and praying (fasting, and paying tithes) that they’ll get a job soon. It’s all a mirage, there are no jobs anywhere for this army of young, agile people ready to earn a legitimate living. The 2014 Immigration Services employment tragedy in Port Harcourt, Lagos, Benin, and other centres fully buttress this point.
Interestingly, the huge population Nigeria boasts of – nearly 180 million people, is not a curse, rather, it is a wonderful blessing for entrepreneurs to tap into and make massive income from.
However, the lack of correct knowledge on startup ideas and sustain businesses is a major reason why many cannot see beyond their immediate and turn the population obstacle into a big opportunity. Sadly also, our tertiary institutions do not train people to be independent entrepreneurs, they rather train them to be reliant on government work, living on pay cheque to pay cheque.
To fill this gap, there is a need to acquire the missing knowledge from another source. This is where Udemy for Business plays a huge and important role. The ‘‘Getting Started’ – on becoming a social entrepreneur and setting up your own business’course incorporates many social entrepreneurship ideas that are creatively designed to help young people to harness their innate talents and turn them into a source of income.
There are so many ways to make money in Nigeria; and with such a huge population, the sky is the launching pad. Products like ‘gala,’ ‘Complete Sports’ magazine, and many others have grown from small time, local businesses to some of the most popular and sought after in the country, raking in hundreds of millions yearly. The same can happen again – but there is a need to understand the intricacies of starting a business using social entrepreneurship ideas, and sustaining same.
No amount is too much to part with in the quest to gain knowledge that can earn you a living for the rest of your life given that these things were not taught in our schools. Therefore, to acquire sound knowledge on how to organize your own business, it is essential you take this course and learn from the masters. Indeed, nobody brought any knowledge from heaven, these were all learnt and put together as a learning module after many years of consistent field research and practice.
In other words, to get out of the rat race; to become financially independent; to truly do that which you love and yet make money from, it is essential to get the right tools from seasoned professionals, localize them, and make them work for you.
Social entrepreneurship ideas mixed with the correct dose of commitment and perseverance would not only take you out of the labour market, it would also guide you to the path of more success, wealth and comfort.
We have the population; we have the right market; all that is needed is a commitment to learn social entrepreneurship ideas and put them to good use. The choice is yours.
