Get to know your passion
Venturing into a business that you have very little interest can be quite dangerous for any entrepreneur. If it is something that doesn’t motivate you to get out of bed every morning, then it’s really not worth it.
Venturing into a business that you are passionate about means that even in bad times when you are making losses after losses and the future seems bleak, you will remain positive and look forward to better tides.
Get to identify customer needs and problems
A business that is started with the customer in mind has a very high likelihood of succeeding. Identifying customer needs and problems will put you in a better position as you will know what it will take to solve their problems and meet their need
Get to know your competitors
Knowing your competitors is very key for any business. For an entry entrepreneur, getting to know your competitor(s) from all aspects is very crucial as it will help you know their next move.
For instance, if your competitor plans to rebrand their product and you get to know about it before things fall into place, you will know what to do as a company so as to remain relevant and avert the risk of making losses. Always Know your ‘’enemy’s’’ next move.
Get to know the profitability of your niche
Entrepreneurship simply means setting up a business in hope of financial gain or profit. As such, no entrepreneur is in business to make losses. It is very important that before you start a business, get to know the profitability of your niche.
This is advantageous as you will know the amount of money you will invest in that specific venture.
These four easy to follow steps will indeed guide any entry entrepreneur into discovering the right niche for your business. They distinguish smart entrepreneurs from entrepreneurs.
Never venture into any business blindly without doing proper research, research can at no point in time be adequate or enough as the market is ever-changing with new ideas being into practice.
Keep on researching and remember to never leave things to chance.

A word of advice:
I’ve found that keeping your day job while you start a side hustle is often the answer. That way you can get to cut your teeth in the business world slowly, while you still have another source of income to rely on. Even in a profitable niche, it can take a while for a new business to turn a profit.
