*Jeremiah Jones knows that you’re never too young to be an entrepreneur. At just ten years old he has already been in business for two years under the banner of JYoungin Education (at JYoungin.com); a new line of clothing and school supplies. Young Jeremiah was inspired by superstar athletes, some hip hop icons and his father Ed Jones, who is also an entrepreneur.
Once Ed learned of his son’s ambitions, he had a character drafted just for Jeremiah as a symbol of faith. As Ed recalls, Jeremiah wanted more than a sign, he wanted items that he could sell:
“He sat me down and said; Dad, can I put something on my shirt, because nobody believes that I have my own company.”
Jeremiah went on to request a meeting with his father and suggested that it take place at Starbucks or TGI Fridays because he knew that’s where adults often hold business meetings.
Ed continues: ““I was impressed, that he wanted to do his own thing, but that he also wanted to follow the steps of his entrepreneurial father.”
As for the adventurous pre-teen and future mogul, his reply was quite simple: “I just want to be successful because you can do anything you put your mind to.”
Ed Jones has fully embraced his son’s passion and today the J Youngin line consists of t-shirts, caps, bookmarks, backpacks, posters, wristbands and a variety of gear targeted for young buyers and their parents. The line has also been featured on the news in Los Angeles on station KTLA. Rounding out the J. Youngin team is designer Omar Gonzalez, who helped created a signature logo that is cool and commercial.
Currently, Jeremiah is on a campaign to recruit millions of supporters to not only buy his products but inspire other young people to take an early step in life by carving out their own destiny! The J Youngin brand is based in Long Beach, California and consists of incentives for scholastic achievement and opportunities for school fundraisers. Motivation, Determination and Goal Setting Standards are the core of the JYoungin clothing line. https://www.jyoungin.com/shop
