03/05/14 The Youth Leadership Marshall County (YLMC) members had the opportunity to discover what it means to be an entrepreneur last week around the county. The youth members had a full day packed of touring local businesses in the area to discover what it means to create your own business, how to operate a business, and what it takes to be a leader within an organization.
YLMC participants were able to tour Mrs. T’s Bakery and Precision Painting in Bremen before heading to Bourbon to tour Harmony Press. The group then made their way to Plymouth where they toured Oliver Ford, Wagoner Music, and LifePlex (Fitness Forum) before ending the day with a round of bowling at Quick’s Bowling Lanes.
Izzy Cretcher of Triton Jr./Sr. High School said her favorite part of the program was touring LifePlex. She said, “I liked this program because we got to learn how people got these businesses started.” Jordan Thornton of Bremen said “I learned that it takes a lot of work to start a business, but in the long run, it pays off in greatness.” Zen Perman of Argos Community School said he liked the program because “It helps you take the lead and find out what type of person you are.”
Next month, the YLMC members will be giving back to their community by spending a Saturday doing community service for two organizations in the county. Thank you to all of the businesses that took part in the meeting this month. Our youth were very excited to learn about your businesses.
