Brenden Coney is an entrepreneur who solved a big problem--how can a middle schooler make money? Too young to hold a job, then 13-year-old Brenden asked his father to teach him how to do basic woodworking.
Over the next five years, these lessons transformed into an impressive businesses called Elevation Creations that sells hand-crafted cutting boards, wine racks, and many other gifts. Working with his mentor Bahman Shafa, President of Focus Property Group, this year, Brenden hopes to expand his retail presence.
Congratulations, Brenden, for being named a winner in the 2018 Spotlight on YouthBiz Stars business competition!
