Answer:

Introduction:

The new business idea in my mind is the personal and beauty industry. I intend to start a state of the art barber parlor specifically for gentlemen in my neighborhood.  It will have also a nail spa, tattoo section as well as body piercing section. My main aim is to offer all high-class grooming and services in one shop in a favorable gentleman’s atmosphere that will be masculine and therapeutic for the convenience of menfolk in my neighborhood. In addition, we will have a mobile barber unit whose aim will be to meet needs and wants of our customers at the comfort of their homes, hotel rooms or offices in the neighborhood. The proposed name for the business shall be ‘STYLES STUDIO’. I came up with the name after inviting my family and friends at a naming tea party. It is a unique name that means exactly the kind products and services that my business will offer that will be specific and personal to the customer, stylish and latest trends and technology that will be a notch higher than all in my neighborhood that men and small boys will enjoy.

The Styles studio parlor will offer new, stylish and trendy haircuts that will also have hot lather neck shave with a shoulder massage, hair coloring, highlights, and corrective toner as well as hair and scalp treatments. It will also offer the traditional straight razor shaves, hot towels, and balm treatments. It will also have a nail spa where manicure and pedicure section, in addition to the new state of the art tattoo and body piercing spot. The business will be a sole proprietorship (Wisdom J 1997). This type of ownership will be of much benefit as it will offer me the following:

  • Sole and complete control and decision making of the business with no outside interference of how the business is being run
  • It will bring me higher profits as there is no sharing of the profits
  • It is simple to start as it requires little paperwork thus minimum legal costs
  • It has few formal business requirements
  • Information regarding this kind of business can be kept private, different from that of a limited company that has to be public upon registration of the business.

Most important advantage of a sole proprietorship is the ease and speed of making decisions while meeting the needs and wants of the customers. Being a new business venture it will receive its share of competition and rejection from other existing businesses.
