Question of the Day
How do someone start a business today in Nigeria with a Zero balance...?

My Answer
Thanks for writing me concerning starting a business with zero income. First, it is possible to start a business without money in Nigeria. Starting a business doesn't need money but an idea, developed with plans and made workable.
I started Logos Audibles Enterprises at www.logosaudibles.com without any money in 2009 and I have started many projects without any money anywhere and they came out successful.
If you want to start a business, you do not need money or all the money first:
You need 1. The Idea 2. Understand who will need the product or service 3. Find out how to place your price so people can  buy 4. Market it by telling people what you can do (Word of mouth and social media)  5. Do it for free first 6. People will refer others to your service if they liked the free service
The kind of business you want to start will help me advice you further if there is a need.
Note that business is supposed to fill a need and is one life activity that makes you to start small and grow big.

Toast to your business success!
