“What could be cheaper than pennies,” thought Liam Lennon, and a business idea was born!
Liam’s business The Lucky Penny creates custom items out of pennies that commemorate special events. His collection of pennies dates back to 1909, so he’s able to make keychains, bracelets and necklaces for just about any request.
In working with his mentor Scott Wylie this year, Liam hopes to add online sales to his website and to develop some strong business relationships which will further grow his business. He’s also looking to add a few new products to his line.
His advice to other kids looking to start a business? “If you find something you like, stick with it! And keep innovating to make your product even better.”
