Mind Yuh Business: Meet the entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurship in Trinidad and Tobago is at an all-time high. 

With the economic uncertainty that many are facing, people are finding alternative means to not only find financial stability but also fill several gaps in goods and services. 

While it's certainly liberating to start your own business and gain financial freedom, the road to success isn't always easy. You may have a great idea for starting a business, but where do you start? Will the idea work? Should you open a physical store or offer your goods and services online? What's the best approach for marketing? Is the business name already registered??

These questions, plus much more, are some of what runs through a budding entrepreneur's head. 

In this four-part series, we sat down with six entrepreneurs across several sectors who walk us through their personal journeys to becoming self-made.

While there is no one sure-fire way to start a business, their experiences can shed light on some of the nuances, mindset and even struggles that all entrepreneurs share.
