With so many young people excelling in business in the country, the FreeOfficeFinder.com felt that it was important to showcase talented individuals to inspire other young people into doing the same thing. There are so many people out there with business ideas who don’t have the confidence or knowledge of how to turn these ideas into reality. Their hope is that this list will hopefully inspire them to do so.
“Starting a business can be hard and very daunting, but I feel that putting together this list shows people that you are never too young to start or make a success of things. Business is a learning curve for people of all ages, so the earlier you get into it, the more you will learn”.
SaidNick Riesel, founder of FreeOfficeFinder, he continued
“We decided to feature Leah on the list because she has already achieved so much at a young age. She has gone on from winning the Apprentice to become hugely successful at something she is passionate about, which is a great lesson for people wishing to go into business.
The fact that she is taking a masters degree to further herself shows incredible ambition which is something that all successful business owners must have”.
