YouthPreneurs Turning Passion Into Profits: How Likkle Ideas Turn Into Big Dreams


The month April is celebrated as National Financial Literacy Month and SamuelFields Consulting Group (SFCG), a Community e-LearningΒ  financial wellness consortium, has been urging individuals and businesses to review their finances and improve their financial literacy.


Last Thursday on their weekly show 𝙇𝙄𝙆𝙆𝙇𝙀 π˜½π™”π™π™€ π™„π˜Ώπ™€π˜Όπ™Ž, three young Antiguan and Barbudan entrepreneurs shared their experiences about how they have harnessed their skills and talents to start their own business. They discussed the growth and development of their enterprise and how financial literacy is helping to take them to the next level.


– Shayna Cort and Chaz Samuel are fitness enthusiasts whose mantra during their daily workouts has evolved into a clothing line called β€œNo Days Off.”


– Danielle Jarvis, dissatisfied with many store bought skin products, began experimenting with her own line of therapies using all natural ingredients and β€œBashful Body Care” was born.


β€œSFCG believes that financial literacy is the key to understanding your business and unlocking further potential for growth. Business owners don’t need to be accountants to be financially literate, but they do need to understand enough to comprehend the inner workings of their businesses,” said Megan Samuel-Fields, CEO of SFCG.


The young entrepreneurs identified promotional partnerships, quality control and the ability the scale their business, as the main challenges that they face as they contemplate making the investment in future expansion.


SFCG will continue the focus on Youthpreneurship by staging the Virtual Youth Opportunities, Lessons and Outcomes (YOLO) Summit on June 5, 2022. The theme of this event is Maximizing Opportunities NOW to Empower the Youth (MONEY).Β  It will be geared towards self-discovery, learning, leadership building and networking.

  1. I’m liking the look of this particular program, because Antigua πŸ‡¦πŸ‡¬ should be more than just about the hospitality sector.

    Young bright minds, and bright ideas is the future and the way forward for the country. If we track and tap into what the youngsters are into then hospitality doesn’t have to be all and end all for our economy.

    • You should go and see what the Prime Ministers Entrepreneurial Fund is all about. Many young people are being assisted with cheap loans to realize their dreams in many areas. Even agriculture.
