Makin’ Lemonade with Josh from Art Connection

Uncategorized

Makin’ Lemonade is our new blog series where we interview Youth Ventures participants on what inspired them to start their business, their biggest challenges, their successes and their dreams for their ventures.

Today we are chatting with Josh Nolan from Art Connection based in Red Bay, NL.

What is your business name?

Art Connection

Tell us about your business.

I am a self made entrepreneur that turned my talent into a local business. I hand paint mostly Newfoundland and Labradors related culture. I have also turned to designing T-Shirts and hoodies with catchy logos. 

Why did you start your business?

Entrepreneurship runs through my veins. My Father, once being a business man had a successful company. I always had a take leadership attitude in most situations. 

How did Youth Ventures help?

Youth Ventures helped me advertise my company. I was featured in the Northern Pen newspaper which surfed all over social media.

What is your dream for your venture?

My dream is in the making. I am working towards having my own building where my business will be located.

What do you enjoy most about owning your own business?

I get a thrill when I work hard and see great progress.

 

What were the greatest challenges in getting started?

Stock. When you run out of stock and have orders, you are anxiously waiting for stock to arrive to get your customer’s orders completed.

What has been your biggest success so far?

My biggest success so far I would only have to say is opening my own business. You cannot expect to become a millionaire over night. You have to spend money to make money and that will pay off.

Do you have any advice for future entrepreneurs?

Believe in what you want. Work hard towards your goals.

What’s next for your business?

Adding new merchandise!

How can people buy your products?

I am found on Facebook “Art Connection“.

What does entrepreneurship mean to you?

There is no better work arrangement than to be your own boss!  With the right level of commitment, the sky is the limit!

What is the coolest business you heard of?

Any business is cool when someone takes a hobby or an interest and transforms it into a prosperous venture!

What are you looking forward to most this summer?

I am looking forward to helping students start up their own business and watch them make their dreams become reality.  I am anticipating a very successful summer!

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

There is a strong tourism industry in the Labrador Straits.  Businesses in the arts and crafts usually seem to do well in this industry.  Examples include: knitted goods, crafts made with local products (rock, driftwood, etc.), and paintings and pictures of NL scenery.  The whole province of Newfoundland and Labrador has an aging population so I see that service type businesses would be very successful as well.  These include: housekeeping, car wash, yard work, dog walker, etc.

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

Youth Ventures is a great program that can provide the necessary support, resources, training and counseling to potential new business owners.  This program fosters entrepreneurship in our youth and helps to shape them into leaders of tomorrow.

What is the most important thing people of any age who want to start a business need to know?

Business opportunities are endless but starting your own business takes a huge level of time, resources and dedication.

 What does entrepreneurship mean to you?

Independence. Being able to do what you want on your own terms is the ultimate freedom.

What is the coolest business you’ve heard of?

There’s a shop in Massachusetts that’s basically a ‘community brewery’. You can walk in and basically brew your own beer to your liking. Kind of like Harvey’s, but for beer.

What are you looking forward to most this summer?

Travel. I had a chance to see places of the island I hadn’t seen before last summer, I’m excited to see it again.

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

There is lots to do this summer, but the best thing that youth could take advantage of this summer is The Friendly Invasion festivities in July and August. Anywhere large amounts of people are gathered is a chance to make money.

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

They need to know that Youth Ventures was created to help them succeed. The best thing is to see young people thrive doing what they excel at and ultimately that they can make opportunities for themselves instead of waiting for one to come along. The beauty of Youth Ventures is that we don’t run the business for you, but we provide the tools as we watch you build it.

What is the most important thing people of any age who want to start a business need to know?

It’s not rocket science. Many people are nervous or scared to start something for themselves, for various reasons. Whatever that reason is, just realize that we’re all just people. If you fail, you try again. If you succeed, well, keep doing what works at that point in time. We live in a time in history where it’s easier than ever to start something, and the world is yours for the taking if you’re willing to put in the work.

Makin’ Lemonade with Youth Ventures

Program Updates

YV_Blog_Header_Alanna

This season, we’ve had the pleasure of working with DC Design House on our new campaign “Makin’ Lemonade with Youth Ventures”. It’s part of our t-shirts, commercials and social media but what does it mean?

Makin’ Lemonade is a concept reminiscent of a traditional first business run by young people – a lemonade stand. Since we help young entrepreneurs start and run their first businesses, it’s a perfect allegory!

YV Makin Lemonade Flag 1400x933 (1)

To us, makin’ lemonade means working hard, getting out there and hustlin’. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!

If you have an idea you’re passionate about, get in touch with Youth Ventures and let us help you bring it to life.
