A young entrepreneur by the name of Jeremiah Jones was able to start his own clothing line, JYoungin, at the age of ten. Jeremiah was inspired to start this business at the age of only eight when he saw his father working to try and get a jump start on his own business. After lots of hard work and persistence Jeremiah was able to start up his own clothing brand. Jeremiah’s father was not completely convinced on Jeremiah’s idea for a business, or his commitment, simply because he was so young. However, after two years Jeremiah was finally able to convince his father that he was definitely “all in” when it came to his business and making it better. With his father’s support he was able to give another good kick-start to his business, and not long after things began to take off for him. The JYoungin clothing brand started out only being sold online, but later Jeremiah was able to build an actual concrete location.
Today at the age of fifteen Jeremiah also runs his own nonprofit organization. The purpose of the organization is to encourage kids in the surrounding area to work hard in school and sports. It also helps kids with character development and thinking about their own business ideas. Jeremiah is very excited about his non-profit because he says with it he hopes he will be able to motivate people everywhere.
Something I find awesome about Jeremiah as a new entrepreneur is his drive and want for success. He wasn’t willing to give up on his idea even though his father did not support him at first. The reason Jeremiah’s business even got started was because he wasn’t willing to give up on his idea. He was passionate about making his own clothing line, so he went for it even though the odds did seem to be against him. I think that one of the leading factors that drove Jeremiah was simply his want to prove himself. Even though he had others around him that thought he couldn’t succeed, this didn’t stop him, and look where he is today! Because Jeremiah did not let things like his young age get in the way he is now the owner of a very successful business and non-profit.
