Hey, Aryan!
Marketing and sales are evergreen skills - they will help you in everything you do.
You can transform what you already know into business, and learn along the way.
There is no magical button - one super skill that will make you into a billionaire overnight. It's more like a million of small skills and details you learn while actually doing stuff.

Agree with @Alexander Mish Marketing and Sales are excellent skills to hone that will help any business you decide to start.

My only suggestion is why wait, choose a market and find a need. Start your business sooner rather than later and learn along the way. After all we never stop learning.

Sales and marketing are the two most important. They will help you and are applicable in all areas of life and not just business.

Next I would say is good writing, listening, and speaking skills.

Some good hard skills might be AI, coding (Python is a good one, also learn HTML and CSS), and things like cybersecurity and cloud computing are in-demand skills.

If you like the idea of selling a product then learn the ins and outs of eCommerce from researching, testing, listing, selling, fulfillment and customer service. Lots of threads here that give you all the info you need.

Try to look at the big picture. You can have skills but they are not worth anything if they are not solving a need. You can have skills, but you still need to market them and sell them (critical).

It may take time engaging in the market to spot needs. I've worked in many environments and after having time in them I started to recognize problems/needs.

It’s near impossible for anyone else to tell you what business to start.

Sounds like you recently graduated, keep in mind education systems are set up to funnel everyone through in a structured way; there are rules, curriculum and a clear progression…

Business isn’t like that, beyond a few common sense laws, it’s chaos and you have to learn to navigate it on your own.

The sooner you realise this, the better off you’ll be.

I’m not saying this to put you down, but to save you some time going down the wrong path because someone on the internet told you to.

Beyond sales, marketing and basic finance, being able to spot opportunities is a skill in itself.

Before deciding what skills you need to develop, first decide what you want to be selling, is it going to be:
  • a physical product
  • a digital product
  • a service (either in person or on line)
  • E-commerce products
Think about what you feel is achievable in your current circumstances? Perhaps with your background in Mechanical Engineering you could go down the digital product path? Maybe a service - are you able to target the wealthy in your country? What is their need - pain point? What isn't being done well that you can improve?
