My business idea is a products called Acne Action. Acne Action solves the acne problem with a unique, all natural, and cruelty free treatment. This miracle products will get even sensitive skin clear fast, while using ingredients everyone can pronounce, and being sold at an affordable cost.
I am looking for mentorship in sales, and also possible connections to access resources such as ingredients for the natural mixture and packaging at a low cost to allow the product to be sold to the general public at an affordable price.
My business is still under development. I do not have a set packaging, price, or resource for ingredients. But the product is tested, and has given positive results for both sales and effectiveness
I am in the process of research and development. I have launched Acne Action last year at two high school markets and it was a roaring success in sales and the need for this product is evident. I would like to do more market research outside of the high schools to get a better idea of who the demographics are.

My name is Kiernan. I’m 16 years old, and I am an entrepreneur who has a really big passion for music. I grew up around music my whole life and me and my mom both really love music and I’ve always wanted to be a musician of some sort.
My general idea is to recreate music for the world. I want to produce only clean music, and create a radio station for many parts of the world and for company’s so they can have different clean music every day.
For my mentor I will be asking a musician for skills and questions I may have that I didn’t know/ wanted to know for music.
My current state of my project is learning the equipment and how to use it. I am also currently designing a logo, and then I plan to create a website.
I’m Jericho Valle and I am 17 years old. I’m from the Philippines and have been here in Canada for 4 years. I just got in to video editing a few months ago and I enjoy it. I started giving it more time so I can practice and get better. I’m the chapter head of Kids for Christ New Brunswick and that means that I’m the one in charge of whoever joins Kids for Christ in New Brunswick. My dream is to be a police officer or any job that enforces the law, I’m heading off to Oulton College next year to take their Policing and Corrections course. I am hoping that I will be able to one day join the RCMP.
My business idea is to create a website where companies will send me footage so I can edit it to their needs and I can post it back in the website where it can be downloaded.
Currently I am hoping to be hired as video editor for Brilliant Labs. For mentorship, I have 2 students that work for Brilliant Labs that have years of experience with video editing. Resource wise, I could use a better setup than what I have, but that will come with time.
For now, I create videos for myself or my youth group. Promotional videos, ‘epic’ edits that I post on Instagram but I don’t earn money off of those, I do it for the fun of it. Getting paid by doing something that I love would definitely be a huge step up for me.
My name is Prince Charles Garbin, 16 years old and I live in Pennfield, New Brunswick. I love playing sports like badminton, soccer and basketball. In the Philippines I played a lot of basketball. I play on every team this year and I have training almost every weekend. When I get bored in the Philippines I would play guitar and watch tutorials on YouTube. I love eating fruits, veggies and things that are sweet. I love listening to music. I have many dreams and goals in my life. I would like to be a Flight Attendant and be a successful business man.
My business idea is to create sports accessories.
Things that I need are a mentor to help me figure out what I need to do with my business.
My name is Colby Lomax. I’m a 16 year old who loves sports, Video games, video editing, and clothing. I love to rock new shoes and nice shirts.
My business idea is to design clothes that myself and others will be able to wear and enjoy. Something that is different and stands out.
In order to be successful I will for sure need someone who knows about clothing and how to build a successful business. I am currently brainstorming about what kind of designs I want on my clothing.
I would like to start a food truck, or a small restaurant.
I could use a great deal of help with rules and regulations as far as selling food goes and opening up a restaurant and or food truck. Resources I would need help with are creating a budget and as always advice on anything would be welcomed.
I am currently at the market research stage for my business.
Who am I?
I am a 17 year old student in his last year of high school. I have recently become involved in the Canadian Armed Forces in 3FD Artillery. I attend Saint John High School with a passion for the History and Art. I participate in events such as provincial Marksmanship teams and individual entrant also regional and national heritage fairs. I was a dedicated member of the Air Cadet program as I have finished five years of service. A few of my hobbies include, painting murals for the city, and maintaining twenty jaw dropping fish tanks. My family is largely infused with the entrepreneurial background. This is due to the fact that my mother started her own successful daycare and is growing with two more campuses in the city for 2019 and having made many connections within the city. My father is a carpenter and does renovations for many clients.
Another Possible Success Story?
My business plan is a ticket into entering the successful business field. My business is built off of the beauty of fish, and their intense amount of maintenance. This includes lessons on how to maintain fish tanks and keeping fish healthy in a healthy environment. In my business, I remove the stress of maintaining fish tanks for the customer. The customer also has the option to request a custom built fish tank in which I would create. This business is a very complex business and everything has to be done very precisely to ensure the health of the fish is top priority. My company will come on a bi-weekly bases to perform a top to bottom service on the customer’s fish tank in order to ensure everything is running perfectly. If the client wishes to have a custom tank built, we can do that. This is a special service that is more costly, but provides a peaceful environment for one’s mind. If the client purchases a tank larger than ten gallons, 10% of the cost will go to Anti-Suicide Prevention. Furthermore, customers may not only be adding life to their homes, but also saving lives.
