I was really nervous to start my own business and didn’t have any money to risk in the first place. The summer company program provided me with the opportunity to try out the business I am passionate about and excel in it without risking money by taking a loan. I was able to run my own tutoring business targeting students in the Ajax area of Durham. I was well supported by my mentor and the summer company program each step of the way. They helped me when I didn’t know what needed to be done and always gave me reminders to keep on track with the summer company program. After a few meetings with my mentor and modifying my plan, I was able to get a website up, door hangers ready and got my marketing done. Eventually I got a few clients and contracts which helped me recover some of my initial costs. I was able to learn and develop communication, interpersonal, time management and organizational skills by running my company. I realized it takes a lot more than I imagined it would to run a successful company but at the same time the rewards are amazing like being your own boss. I really enjoyed this experience and will be recommending the program to many of my friends and family.
