Class of 2019

Hi I’m Aaron Graham and I am a senior at Greensboro Day School. I have lived in North Carolina my entire life and enjoy the art and music that this state celebrates and creates. It provides a wonderful way for people to express themselves and provides a conduit for creativity. Academically, I am especially interested in the fields of art and design and I hope to be able to pursue these interests in college.

Our Solutions

Solution 1

Challenge Addressed: Financial Management

We created a detailed log to keep track of all transactions, expenses, and sources of revenue. Once the profits are established through the log, an amount of money is set each month to be put away into savings. This will organize the flow of money through the business and set up for the future.

Solution 2

Challenge Addressed: Advertising

So far, we have created a logo (we have several examples and can make new ones if these may not suffice). To achieve our solution, we are following a plan of action for advertising.

Our current plan is to make fliers with logo and general information and set them up in the nearby market, supply customers with business cards with the logo and information, and put up a sign outside of the shop.

Solution 3

Challenge Addressed: Lack of Computer and Other Parts for Shop

We are continuously raising money in order to support the expansion of the business. Financial management and the creation of the business fund overtime will also aid in the proper expansion of the business.
