The Y-Preneur Course


I am Melissa, the course creator. As an entrepreneur and mentor, I am extremely passionate about sharing the many skills, experiences and lessons I have learnt and gained on my entrepreneurial journey. I currently run 2 creative businesses, have written an eBook, have had my products sold out with a major online retailer as well as with boutiques in and around London. I have been featured in press and have had the pleasure of helping others on their start-up journey.

I started out on my business journey as a young adult and one thing I often say to myself is “I wish I had been able to start younger! I wish I knew what I know now, earlier on in life!” You can watch a short Instagram video about my journey by clicking here

The Bejewelled Academy
Fantastic Accessible and Insightful Course
Thank you for making the course so accessible. My sons are 14, 12 and 9 (there’s a 2 year old little man too!) and they are home educated. Doing this course has made for a really well rounded lesson/ topic for them. We’ve created a company name, tag line, logo which has covered art, graphic design and English. Then the profit and loss was a great maths lesson for all of them. The well-being section was also really useful for opening up conversations about worries etc. So all in all, we have happy boys who feel they have achieved something. And a happy Mumma because it was such a great all round, thorough lesson! So thank you very much for that :) Sarah B
