This year's competition introduced us to a groups of students who set up how-to-use-the-internet workshops for over-60s in their area; the incredible 11-year-old who made more than £500 by selling poem cards for Mother's Day (and he bagged Sainsbury's as a distributor along the way!); the socially-minded group of kids who planned an anti-drinking campaign to combat the epidemic of underage alcoholics in their town andRichard-Branson-in-the-making Kieran Owen, who made more than £500 trading on eBay and already has his own pretty darn impressive online shop up and running.
It's amazing to see the entrepreneurs of tomorrow - and of today! - doing such amazing amounts with such a small initial investment. Plus these young people are socially-minded too - they all donated profits to various charities. It goes to show that everyone can be business owner. It doesn't take money, it doesn't take too much time (they still managed to get all their homework done!) and it doesn't take years of experience.
It just takes a bit of enthusiasm and that first step towards actually making it happen. If they can do it, so can you.
