“Young entrepreneurs are talented and brave individuals, making our society a better place thus using their creative skills creating a market for unique, locally-made products, creating jobs for persons who need a daily income.”

Kaieteur News – Since he was a teenager, Ivor Rajnarine wanted nothing more than to own his own business. It was something he was always passionate about and had his mind on accomplishing. Fulfilling his long awaited childhood dream, Rajnarine is now the proud owner of a customising business called ‘The Sarcastic Tee Shop’.
‘The Sarcastic Tee Shop’ opened its doors back in February of this year and offers more than just customising tee-shirts. Persons can have items such as wallets, phone cases, cups and more customised.
In a recent interview with this publication, Rajnarine said that before delving into the customising arena, there were a few business ideas he was contemplating. “I had a few ideas but I was very much interested in graphic tees and my curiosity lead me to follow-up and learn everything I could possibly learn about it. Fast forward to a few years later, here I am finally doing what I love and always dreamt about,” he shared.
His decision to open up his business was backed by tremendous support from his family and girlfriend. “I really can’t thank them enough, it’s important to have that kind of support, it helps you mentally, which is very important,” the young man noted.
Since opening its operations, his customising business has only had about a handful of challenges along the way. Among them has been the sourcing of materials locally which proven to be quite difficult. To meet customers’ demands and to avoid delays, materials, he said, must be purchased online in advance.
Another challenge he faces, is the marketing aspect. Marketing, as we are aware, is a very important ingredient in running a business. But marketing will not remain an obstacle, as the 27-year-old entrepreneur said he is working on ways to fix that.
As for the pandemic, his business has not been affected but he did highlight, however, that he was worried about the outcome not knowing what problems may arise along the way during these times.
Rajnarine is very grateful for what he has accomplished thus far and the way his business has been flowing. Looking at the bigger picture, he hopes to expand one day his operation and to help others wherever he can.
Our featured entrepreneur is of the belief that young entrepreneurs are not only inspirational to younger people but they are great contributors to society as well. “Young entrepreneurs are talented and brave individuals, making our society a better place thus using their creative skills creating a market for unique and locally-made products, creating jobs for persons who need a daily income,” he expressed.
To this end, he calls on relevant authorities to open more platforms that would showcase what young entrepreneurs have to offer. “Provide locations or events for upcoming entrepreneurs to display their products and get their names out in the open and I encourage our citizens as well to support and perhaps invest in the business as well,” the young man stated.
