Episode 8 – What every entrepreneur can and should learn from two successful teenagers

Starting from scratch, Tim Baldwin and Jordan Strobel from Trail, BC wanted to start their own business. The idea of being their own boss was appealing, and they had the drive, talent and energy to make it happen. The rest, could be learned along the way.

Combining their love of digital media, graphic design, and action adventure sports, the pair started making up shirt designs, and filming their friends wearing their goods in the mountains of The Rossland Range. Taking advantage of the opportunity a grade 11 class provided them, they went full steam on launching Ebon Supply Co. and have since gone on to win the Jr. Dragon’s Den Contest.

Their story is inspiring and is chalk full of lessons for even the most seasoned entrepreneurs to learn from. Have a listen!
