Young Entrepreneur

My Story

Hi, my name is Quinn. I am a teenage girl, living in Saskatoon, Canada. I come from a big family with three siblings.

I have an older brother who my dad helped start a company for. It was my brother and my two cousins. They were called the Grass Barbers.

They cut grass in the city we lived in. My dad rigged up their bikes to haul a trailer with a mower and whipper snipper. It was pretty sweet.

My Young Entrepreneur Business Idea

A couple years later when I was 13, I wanted to earn some money and was trying to think of an idea for a business.

My dad had some old VHS tapes that he wanted to put on the computer. That’s when the light went on… “Dad, let’s start a company!” 

I knew that there had to be more people just like my Dad that needed their VHS tapes converted.

My Young Entrepreneur Journey

After the decision was made, we started planning. My dad already a VCR we could use, so we bought other conversion equipment we needed and started converting.

My dad trained me on what to do and I got started. My first customer was my Grandpa. He had way more tapes than my dad. I think I did VHS conversion for about 40+ VCR tapes!

My Future Plans

Business has been going good, but there’s always room for growth. I realized that there were lots of people who had other requests… so we bought more equipment.

I started with VHS conversion, but now I also do slide scanning, mini-DV conversion and photo scanning. Need a project archived digitally?
