Participant of the Month: Vivian John, London Borough of Barking & Dagenham

“I am really enjoying learning new things and the help I get from TSBC and my facilitator.  I am really getting to learn the business side of things, things that I didn’t know before.  I thought that it was going to be easy, but you’ve actually got to put in the hard work. So far my best moment has been learning how business works and realising that you can’t learn anything straightaway.  Its about learning step by step how everything works.

My business idea is to create a website where people can access information and opportunities related to the mechanics industry.  Using the example of current websites where you look for a local garage to get your MOT done or look for information on the latest cars that are coming out, my website would do all of that also allow youth to access a taster course so that they can see whether mechanics is something that they could get into.  I want to be able a service which matches up garages with young people who want work experience or to get an apprenticeship.

My vision is to become one of the biggest websites where you can help others, especially the youth.  To help them understand that its not about what others say, you can be great if you want to be.  I want to help other see that there is more to life than messing around and getting into  trouble, if you put your mind to it you can do anything you want”
