Tell us about your entrepreneurial product or service.
Our main focus is helping the Caribbean youth to develop a brand, which will assist in their transition from school life to professional existence. We provide tailored document services for the application process and workshops, inclusive of brand and professional marketing development.

What inspired you to launch your business idea?
I have had friends in the past who would come and ask for my assistance with their applications for employment. Not that they didn’t necessarily know the basics but where unsure and not confident about how their own brand came off. I then thought to myself, in the Caribbean the youth are somewhat at a disadvantage. We are not given proper guidance as to how to establish and market ourselves in such a way that makes us stand out. Thus, Gateway Caribbean was born, as a tool to help with this gap of understanding.

What problem does your business or organization solve?
We create a sense of awareness for what youth should expect and/or understand about employment and/or entrepreneurship. We help them to realize what some of the fundamental things that may not seem relevant are and create a foundation for them to build on for their continued professional lives.

What has been your biggest challenge as an entrepreneur and how are you working to overcome it?
My biggest challenge has been trying to get some youth to understand why everything that you do is important and affects your employ-ability level. Some youth make it quite difficult to keep engaged because their career is not fully thought of here in the Caribbean until maybe their 20s. I have overcome this by focusing on building their portfolios through fun activities. Creating engaging workshops that teach them the fundamentals through their own interaction with others, as apposed to me just standing and talking. They then come to understand the value of certain things by themselves.

Give us one word that people might use to describe you.

  1. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of
    plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog
    has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself
    or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all
    over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any
    solutions to help protect against content from being
    stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

  2. I am really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any
    internet browser compatibility problems? A small number of my
    blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks
    great in Firefox. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

  3. I blog quite often and I genuinely appreciate your information. The article has truly peaked my interest. I will bookmark your blog and keep checking for new information about once per week. I opted in for your RSS feed as well.

  5. Nice read. I just passed this onto a buddy who was doing a little research on that. He actually bought me lunch as I found it for him! Thus let me rephrase: Thanks for lunch!

  6. I’m impressed, I must say. Actually rarely must i encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you could have hit the nail around the head. Your notion is outstanding; the catch is an element that insufficient folks are speaking intelligently about. We are very happy i always came across this inside my search for something about it.

  7. Hey. Very cool blog!! Guy .. Beautiful .. Wonderful .. I’ll bookmark your site and take the feeds additionally…I’m happy to find numerous useful information here in the post. Thanks for sharing..

  8. Today, with all the fast way of life that everyone leads, credit cards have a huge demand throughout the market. Persons coming from every area of life are using credit card and people who not using the credit cards have arranged to apply for just one. Thanks for sharing your ideas on credit cards.

  9. Hi there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price? Thank you, I appreciate it!

  10. In line with my study, after a foreclosed home is marketed at a sale, it is common for the borrower to still have a remaining unpaid debt on the financial loan. There are many loan companies who try to have all service fees and liens cleared by the upcoming buyer. On the other hand, depending on a number of programs, polices, and state laws and regulations there may be several loans that are not easily resolved through the switch of lending products. Therefore, the obligation still rests on the debtor that has got his or her property in foreclosure. Many thanks for sharing your ideas on this weblog.

  11. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my cousin were just preparing to do some research on this. We grabbed a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such great information being shared freely out there…

  12. One thing I have actually noticed is always that there are plenty of misguided beliefs regarding the banking institutions intentions if talking about property foreclosures. One delusion in particular is the fact that the bank needs to have your house. The financial institution wants your dollars, not the home. They want the funds they lent you along with interest. Staying away from the bank will only draw a foreclosed realization. Thanks for your article.

  13. I’ve learned quite a few important things through your post. I might also like to express that there will be a situation where you will obtain a loan and do not need a cosigner such as a Federal Student Aid Loan. But when you are getting credit through a common financier then you need to be willing to have a co-signer ready to make it easier for you. The lenders will certainly base that decision using a few issues but the most important will be your credit rating. There are some loan merchants that will additionally look at your work history and come to a decision based on that but in many cases it will be based on on your ranking.

  14. whoah this blog is magnificent i love reading your posts. Keep up the great work! You know, a lot of people are searching around for this information, you can aid them greatly.

  15. Simply want to say your article is as amazing. The clarity in your post is just great and i can assume you are an expert on this subject. Fine with your permission allow me to grab your feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please carry on the gratifying work.

  16. One thing is that often one of the most popular incentives for utilizing your credit card is a cash-back or even rebate present. Generally, you will get 1-5 back on various acquisitions. Depending on the credit card, you may get 1 returning on most purchases, and 5 again on expenditures made in convenience stores, gasoline stations, grocery stores as well as ‘member merchants’.

  17. Thank you for another informative web site. Where else could I get that kind of information written in such a perfect way? I’ve a project that I’m just now working on, and I have been on the look out for such information.

  18. Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  19. I’ve been exploring for a little bit for any high quality articles or blog posts on this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this website. Reading this info So i am happy to convey that I’ve an incredibly good uncanny feeling I discovered exactly what I needed. I most certainly will make sure to don’t forget this site and give it a glance regularly.

  20. Along with every thing which seems to be developing throughout this subject material, all your opinions tend to be very stimulating. On the other hand, I beg your pardon, because I do not give credence to your whole suggestion, all be it refreshing none the less. It seems to me that your commentary are generally not entirely justified and in simple fact you are yourself not even completely confident of the argument. In any case I did enjoy examining it.

  21. Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to produce a good article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

  22. Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your web site in internet explorer, might test this… IE still is the market chief and a large section of folks will miss your wonderful writing due to this problem.

  23. Once I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any method you’ll be able to remove me from that service? Thanks!

  24. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers

  25. In accordance with my research, after a in foreclosure home is sold at an auction, it is common for any borrower in order to still have the remaining balance on the personal loan. There are many creditors who try and have all costs and liens paid back by the subsequent buyer. Nonetheless, depending on a number of programs, rules, and state legislation there may be a number of loans that are not easily solved through the transfer of lending products. Therefore, the duty still lies on the client that has got his or her property foreclosed on. Many thanks for sharing your thinking on this weblog.
