A Little Shop Of Handmade Products
If you are an extremely creative person and you are not happy with your full time job, you should consider opening up a little business of your own. The sad fact is that most young people are unhappy with their full time jobs as they are so creative and have so much potential outside the scope and limitations of their job. Working at a full time job somehow feels like being trapped inside when you have a thousand things that you would rather do outside of that box. As a young person, it is important that you do not let yourself be limited by the rules and regulations that other people have put down for you. While you may need to work at your full time job because you need the money, consider starting another little business during your free time that you can work on, improve and expand until one day, you will no longer have to work at your full time job.
You will need to start very small because you will not have much time to dedicate to your new little business. One of the first things you will need to do is to make a list of all the things that you are good at with a second list of how each of these things corresponds to a need that you will be able to meet for other people. As an example, if you are creative and can make things like customized cards, personalized coasters and customized mugs and so on, you will be able to meet two markets. The first is the individual market where an individual wants to buy something special for their loved one and you will also be able to meet the corporate market in helping them to buy personalized gifts for their customers.
You will also be able to market yourself as a wedding gift workshop as you will be able to make customized wedding invitations, customized wedding favour in Singapore and so on. The wedding market is an extremely big market as this will mean bulk orders and it will also mean that these brides will tell other brides about your services and you will be able to expand your business within no time.
Once you have caught on to a certain market, you will be able to expand your business significantly from there on. If you target weddings for example, you will be able to advertise in wedding shows and wedding magazines which will directly reach the market you are targeting.
