The Convenience Crew

Knowing that they wanted to be their own bosses, CNA students Steven Ryan and Ephraim Messele startedThe Convenience Crew, a landscaping business based in St. John’s. They’re your go-to guys, specializing in lawn mowing, flower planting, flower bed de-weeding, and garbage removal.

Under the guidance of YV Coordinators Alicia and Ashley, Youth Ventures helped Steven and Ephraim navigate some of the red tape when starting any new business:

Their message to youth looking to become entrepreneurs? It’s hard work, but there is a lot of help out there, so make use of it!

These guys are the real deal: they currently have 5 employees, and their plans for the future include engaging with communities to enhance fundraising initiatives and social programs. Keep up the amazing work, guys!
