Meet Talon

February 16, 2024

Meet Talon of Elite Wristbandz!  He is a student in Roxbury Township, NJ, and we are excited to showcase his business in the TREP$ Student Spotlight.  Read more to hear Talon’s wise advice for other young entrepreneurs just starting out:

My name is Talon and my business’ name is Elite Wristbandz. I am a sports enthusiast, and motivation helps me achieve my goals.  I chose to sell motivational wristbands to help uplift and motivate my customers.

The part of my business that I found most challenging was NUMBERS!  I had to balance my expenses and net proceeds to determine my bottom-line profitability.

One of the most important skills I learned through TREP$ was how to buy at wholesale prices and resell at a higher price.  The parts I most enjoyed about TREP$ were building a business, branding, and selling.

My net profit was $61.  With part of my earnings, I purchased food and treats to donate to St. Hubert’s Dog Shelter.

As a result of my experience in TREP$, I have a lot of advice to give to other kids who are starting a business:

  1. Follow your dreams and come up with a thorough plan.
  2. Always ask questions and learn as much as you can from successful people.
  3. Advertising is important to successful business growth.
  4. Nothing is impossible with the right mindset and determination!
