Q : How old were you when you started to be an Enterprising Teenager?
I was 25 when I published my first blog.
Q : What were you doing as an Enterprising Teenager?
When I started, I did not have much of an idea at how to do these videos, and looking back at the first episodes I created, they look horrible! Overtime I learned a lot. Today, I have high quality video production skills. I have put in a lot of hours and sleepless nights trying to figure the stuff out, and now it’s paying off.
Q : Who helped you the most when you were a teenager, and what did they do for you?
My network and the people who said “yes” to my interviews in the very early days. This showed me that they believed in me, which encouraged me to go further. Collectively they have helped me reach the point where I am now.
Q : What advice would you give to a teenager who wants to start a small business activity?
Just start, and figure it out things as they come. Don’t listen to other people’s negativity. But be careful not to confuse this with feedback. Understand that you need to invest money wisely to make money, even if it is just a few francs.
I also try to always do things first myself before I delegate, so that I know the struggles and challenges of each job!
Q : What is the biggest regret you have from when you were a teenager?
Sometimes I have been listening too much to strangers who held me back. Pretending to be someone I’m not.
