Interior designer or decorator
* Startup Costs: Under N20,000 About
* Home Base: Can be operated from home.

Did you have flair with furniture and a knack for cool colour combinations? You might want to think about putting your design talents to work.  From private homes and commercial and government buildings, interior decorators and designers dress up the inside spaces of just about any place you can think of.  They work with all kinds all kinds of furnishings, fabrics and building materials, increasingly use computer-aided design software to design settings that give a new place its character and bring new life to existing residences, workplaces and public settings.  Both decorators and designers need to have a sense a color and balance or proportion, an ability to communicate through graphic presentations, and a positive attitude toward change so they can keep up with design trends while still being responsive to their clients? desires.
Interior decorators can?and often?do their work without formal credentials, but to call yourself an interior designer, you may have to have formal certification and training.  Decorators and designers charge for their services in several ways.  Some request a flat fee for design work.  Others bill by the hour, at rates ranging up to N2000.  Still others add a service charge of approximately 20 percent to the cost of items they but for clients, such as furniture, fabrics and floor coverings.
Someone wanting to start a business decorating interiors can enter the field without the formal education required for certification by pursuing one of these paths:
* Taking a correspondence or learning program from well established decorator designer.
* Buying a franchise though a company like Interiors by Decorating Den.  Initial and ongoing training are both provided as part of the franchise package.
Marketing a decorating or design practice is not unlike marketing other local services businesses?networking in organizations where there are potential clients or sources of referrals, gaining recognition through publicity and speaking engagements, generating referrals from satisfied customers and having a web site.

Startup Costs: N100,000 ? N200,000 About Create a great hangout for sports fans that?ll keep them coming back for every game.

Business Overview
Depending on the establishment?s capacity, sports bars can be a specific version of the neighborhood tavern, or they can take on a life as big as a nightclub.  You may have the latter in mind, but your market research may point to the former.  It?s important to do your homework! Generally, sports bars offer some kind of menu options such as burgers, pies, sandwiches, and appetizers.  Since the main attraction is sporting events, sports bars have televisions in view of every seat, sometimes all tuned to different channels.  Audio and video technology comes into play, with some owners spending a large percentage of their revenue on keeping up with the latest in technology?from satellites to big-screen TVSs.  The startup costs and revenue potential reflect basically the same numbers as a neighborhood bar.  Sports bars benefits from having built-in events to use in their marketing throughout the year, but you need more than just sporting events and drinks to attract customers.  Many sports bars also have video games and other activities to keep customers captivated.

The Market
When creating your sports bar concept, keep in mind the people you?d like as customers.  Contact the local chamber of commerce to get information on age, gender, income level, marital status, and political and religious affiliations of your target market.  You?ll also want to investigate any favorite sports or teams in your community.  Once you?ve established your bar, how can you get the neighborhood to come? Generate word-of-mouth buzz through direct-mail campaigns, developing a Web site or getting involved in community events charity functions.

Needed Equipment
Once you have your location selected and have gotten the necessary licenses, you will need to decide how to layout your bar and what equipment you?ll need, including: glassware, compartment sinks, glass racks, taps and dispending systems for beer and soft drinks, cooler for beer kegs, freezer, ice bins, ice machine, ice pick, ice scoops, dishwasher, storage cabinets and display shelves.  You will also need kitchen equipment for the snacks and sandwiches you?re offering, and machines for making coffee drinks.  For a sports bar, TVs are a must, and there is cable or satellite service to consider as well.  And don?t forget the beer, wine and liquor!.

Love all things that sparkle? Start a jewelry business

Business Overview
If you love the art of making jewelry, then you?ll have a ball as a professional jewelry and accessories designer.  Jewelry and accessories are always popular, especially today when all those ?60-style beads are back in style in a big way.  You can work silver, with glass, fabrics, feathers, clays-whatever suits your talents and fancies.  And you can specialize in earrings, rings, pins or pendants, or in handcrafted handbags or hats.  The advantages to this business are that you get to be creative as a career, you meet lots of interesting people while selling your art, and you can start part-time if you like.  You?ll need the talent and skills to design and turn out jewelry or accessories others will want to be seen in.  And in addition to all that artistic sensibility, you?ll need plenty of marketing creativity and drive-you?ll need to sell your products as well as make them.

The Market
You can host home parties or sell directly to local merchants, at flea markets, arts and crafts fairs, and through wholesalers and sales reps.  If you plan to go the wholesale route, hook up with reps at gift shows, which you can locate by calling local and regional chambers of commerce and convention centres.

Your equipment will depend on what jewelry and accessories you?ll design.  Goldsmith requires a different set of tools than beadwork, and leatherworking is not the same as quilting.  If you?re already working with your chosen medium, you probably have your tools at hand.  But now that you?ll be designing professionally, take an equipment inventory and decide if newer or additional tools or equipment could make your work faster and easier?remember, the more pieces you turn out, the higher your income will be.

Mobile Art Gallery
Startup Costs:

* Home Based: Can be operated from home.
* Part Time: Can be Operated part-time.
Take art right to its ideal audience with a mobile gallery.

Business Overview
Art is big business, and starting a mobile art gallery can put you on the road to riches.  Take a traditional art gallery; place wheels on it and you have this business opportunity in a nutshell.  Maybe it is not that simple, but pretty close.  In this enterprise you will want to work with perhaps a hundred artists or more.  This is a volume-based operation.  Once you have selected the artists, begin to establish locations where the artworks will be featured.  Good locations include doctor office waiting rooms, office lobbies, restaurants, hospitals and all other high-traffic gathering places.  The art can be displayed in these locations with a small card on each piece, which reads, ?this art is for sale, for further information call (your business name and a telephone no). ? When a potential customer calls to inquire about a particular piece of art for sale, you simply sell the art over the phone and arrange delivery to the purchaser.  If a piece sells for N1000 then you would give the artist N500, the host location N100 and keep N400 for yourself.  As you can see, on a volume basis there is enormous potential for profit.  Imagine if you had 100 locations selling just two pieces of art per month at an average sale price of N15,000 ? you would stand to make more than N60,000 every month.

Operating a mobile art gallery business requires excellent cold calling, presentation, organization and negotiation skills.  You will also need reliable transportation and a computer system to track and maintain customer files and inventory lists.

Start-up costs: The investment to set this business enterprise in motion is minimal: N10,000 to N30,000 there about will be sufficient to purchase any required equipment and leave enough working capital to operate on for a few months while the business is being established.

Profit potential:
Charging a flat commission of 40 percent for you and generating gross sales of N2,500,000 per year will generate business revenues of N1,000,000.  Once again, I stress that you must secure as many art installation locations or ?silent salespeople? as you possibly can.
