Can someone really make money without a business office or shop? Well you can and that's where some small businesses start. Some people really start their small business without having to rent an outlet for a lot of reasons such as little capital. How do they do that?
In fact many people in Nigeria and our world today still make money without having a fixed address or an office.

Things you will need
To be able to do this, here are things that can help you
- Mobile phone: You need to be connected at least with a mobile phone
- Regular meeting place: People need to be able to know where to reach you or where you make yourself publicly available.
- Market knowledge: You need to be informed about the market and how you can make ends meet. Where to source for products and services and where to deliver them
- Skills: Having skills can help you. Skills like people skills, marketing skills, organisational skills and so on.

Examples of small businesses people do in Nigeria without a fixed office
- Marketing: You can earn a commission for any item or service you help sell even if you don't own the item or service
- Delivering goods: Just moving goods or services from one place to another is a good business
- Computer Freelancing: web designing, writing and so on
- Domestic services: eg - Plumbing, Carpentering, Electrician, Painting, Security, Cleaning, Call in dry cleaning and so on

As your income grows in he future, you may need to have an official place so as to keep the business in existence.

There are many small businesses you can start up in Nigeria even if you don't want to rent an office yet and still make good income. You just need to advertise, get people to trust you, publish you mobile phone and deliver when they make an order.

its very possible to do business without an office.
i run an events planning and projects management business, and for now i dont have an office space yet so i use my house as my warehouse, but i made an arrangement with a friend who has a bridal shop in the busiet part of town to use her shop address as my contact address. then i printed my business card with my phone numbers and her shop address, so every once in a while i go to her shop and meet up with clients.
its very possible.
