Our group of young entrepreneurs have spent several months learning how to make jewellery – earrings, bracelets, necklaces etc. – and having created some unique products we spent 2 days on a market stall on Sutton high street. The journey we are on to teach these young people the skills to run their own business and earn their own legitimate money isn’t just about making the products! The skills we worked on this weekend included setting the stall out (appearance and presentation of the products), how to talk to onlookers and potential buyers, what our unique selling points are, how to close a sale and income/expenditure. We also discussed how else we can sell the products and where online sales could play a part. All of this was useful time to catch up with the young people and discuss a wide variety of subjects and share breakfast together. Our special thanks go to Sarah for organising and spending the day on the stall, for Jason and Mark from Berts & Gerts for the stall and for the guys at Crucial Sauce for their help too.
