You are the youngest entrepreneur on the site so far. How did you come to the decision to start your own business?
Even as a child I was totally creative, always drawing and always said: „ When I grow up, I’ll be an artist.”
After graduating from high school, I trained as a design assistant and wanted to work in this sector. But I let myself be convinced to learn something more “normal or usual”. In the trade I was not happy at all and kept thinking about how to go on. Shortly afterwards, I said to myself: “It’s not crazy, others are founding too”, and I gathered all my courage, dropped out of my apprenticeship and founded my business right away.
A courageous step…
Yeah, but my life has totally changed since my business was founded. I’ve totally changed, I’ve evolved personally.
What happened then?
Then after incorporation it was like, “ok, I’ve incorporated now, there’s a company called JimProd. . . , that offers graphic design. – Now what?” Where do the customers come from? What do I do now? How do I live with my company?
I founded it through the Garage Lausitz. They had some really good tips for me. The network behind it really helped me in the beginning. In the meantime, I am constantly active on LinkedIn and Instagram, constantly optimizing my online presence so that I can find more customers.
