What is the coolest business you have heard of?

What are you looking forward to most this summer? 

Interacting with youth in my region while helping them start their own business. I’m happy to be back for another season as a Youth Ventures Coordinator. I can’t wait to have another fun summer with you all! 

What are some interesting business opportunities you see for young entrepreneurs in your region? 

There are lots of cool business ideas you can come up with to start a business such as photography, art, crafting, babysitting, baking, knitting, dog sitting, or any creative business you’re interested in creating. The Farm and Market in Clarenville is popular for participants to showcase and sell their work while networking in the community.  Participants can sell their products on Facebook Marketplace or the Clarenville and Area Online Yard Sale page or an online yard sale page for your community. I would suggest creating a Facebook business page to sell and advertise your work. There are always local craft fairs in the area you can sign up to attend as well.  

What do youth in NL need to know about Youth Ventures? 

Youth Ventures is a FREE program in Newfoundland and Labrador! Reach out, we can help you start your business even if your only interested in a summer hobby. We can help with business plans, ideas, marketing, networking, mentorship, and counselling sessions. We can turn your interest and passion into a fun money-making venture.

What is a piece of advice you have for people of any age who are considering starting a business? 

Just do it! Take the risk. Never be afraid of starting something new. If you don’t succeed you will always learn from your mistakes to become successful. If you’re not sure how to start up, get in contact with me, I can help. If I had my time back, I would have got involved in Youth Ventures when I was younger. This is a great opportunity for a youth looking to start out in the working field.
