A new Hunter produced podcast featuring local, successful, young entrepreneurs is inspiring other young local people to consider entrepreneurship.
The Youngpreneur podcast is an initiative of the Australian Government’s Hunter entrepreneurship facilitator, Cheryl Royle and, Newcastle-based, podcast creator, Welcome to Day One. The podcast was launched this month to coincide with Youth Week.
Ms Royle said each episode features one of the entrepreneurs sharing their inspiring story and tips for others. Four of the entrepreneurs are from the Hunter – Erin Wilson from Urban Base Fitness, Jack Antcliff from Oasis Media, Tyler Regan from Orchard School Systems and Josh Freinberger from GVP esports. Lara Davis from Central Coast based Lovely Little Lights and Taj Pabari from Fiftysix Creations are also featured.
She said that too often, young people, including those who struggle to get, or fit in to, conventional paid work, are told that they are too young to start their own business.
“The Youngpreneur Podcast features really inspiring young people who have started their own business and are making incredible progress,” Ms Royle said.
Becoming an entrepreneur while you’re young is an incredible opportunity that also gives you skills that make you highly employable,” she said.
“It is a time in life when you can give stuff a go and have flexibility and room to fail fast and learn.”
“This podcast is for young people who have an idea for a business or just want to explore their options.”
“With the COVID-19 pandemic putting many young people out of work the podcast is very timely.”
Welcome to Day One producer, Adam Spencer, said he hoped the podcast helps young people living in other regional areas.
“Like the other podcasts we produce, Youngpreneur is about discovering and sharing the stories of regional entrepreneurs to inspire others to action and remind all of the regional founders out there, that they are not alone,” Mr Spencer said.
“Even if it just knowing there are others out there facing similar challenges to you,” he said.
The podcast is available for FREE from usual podcast channels including Apple Podcast, Podfollow, Whooshkaa and Spotify. People may also access it via the Hunter Futurepreneurs program website at www.hunterfuturpreneurs.com.au
Established in 2018, Welcome to Day One amplifies the stories of regional startups and founders.
