In starting your agribusiness, you have probably heard that it is important to start “small”. That’s even like the most popular admonition you’d hear when you tell someone you want to start a business, no matter how small, you might view it. First things first, you must settle in your heart that you’re not doing business to please anyone, but to meet the interest of your target audience. You see, in agribusiness, you don’t have to start “small” like people say it, but rather start stable. Agriculture is quite profitable, no doubt, but it takes more than just wearing green to succeed. You need to have a well thought-out business plan. How do you intend to start? What about continuation plan? And sustainability plans?
You can’t afford to start small like you’re thinking it; it must be stable enough to be called a business, else economic winds will blow off your ideas. What you will be exerting all the energy of planting and cultivation on, should also be worth it. As much as possible, you must give your all – nobody will do that effort thing you’re shying from, for you. It’s a hard truth, but the reality out there is that, when you start too small, too small to sell or profit: you might not be able to recycle the yield from your harvests and also still have something tangible to sell. Your agricultural venture is a business once there are sales. So, make it sell … instead of starting small, I’ll rather say; start smart (consult – learn, unlearn and relearn), think big and scale up.
