Social media influencers
Most young people are earning thousands of shillings from social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Companies hire such people owing to their large social media following and use them to promote their brands.
Setting up a gaming centre within the campus is also a wise business idea seeing that many students are game junkies.
A strategic location and ability to keep up with trends are the two most important qualities required in order to conquer the market.
Whether its airtime cards, clothes, mosquito rackets, it is quite evident that hawking has made its way into every aspect of our lives today.
Typically anything portable can be sold to us on the comfort of our rooms courtesy of students who make it their hustle to provide us with this comfort.
