Youth Ventures Success Stories: Meet Courtney Young

We are excited to share our 2021 Excellence in Financial Management Winner, Courtney Young (Stephenville, NL) for her business, Beauty by Courtney!

Here’s Courtney’s story…

In the Beginning

Courtney wanted to work in a quieter, more relaxing environment. Her solution? Opening her own salon! With the help of her father, she fabricated her own salon space and made her dream a reality!

Why Entrepreneurship?

Starting Beauty by Courtney gave Courtney the freedom she was looking for to have a more balanced lifestyle between working hours.

Courtney has all the expertise to offer her clients a wide variety of services like: Teeth whitening, Lash Lift & Tinting, Pedicures, Ear Candling, Haircuts, Styles, and Colours. Owning and operating her own salon means that Courtney can also offer these services at a great price point!

Making it Happen with Youth Ventures

Courtney joined Youth Ventures in July 2021. They helped her start her business by educating her on what steps to take, and by helping her overcome some of her biggest challenges, like getting a permit for her salon from the town.

What’s Next

Courtney hopes to expand to offer even more services in the future. For Courtney, her success comes from always striving to make her clients happy with the services they receive!

Moment of Reflection

Courtney’s advice for young entrepreneurs like herself is: “Don’t give up, your hard work will pay off!”

Beauty by Courtney’s wide range of services can be viewed and booked on her Facebook page.
