At MDfitout, we’re passionate about nurturing the next generation of business leaders. That’s why when our director, Matt, was invited to Joseph Paxton School on the Wirral to speak to Year 10 and 11 business studies students, he jumped at the chance.

Empowering Students to Think Outside the Box

During his engaging presentation, Matt didn’t just talk about business theory – he brought it to life with a touch of magic and a lot of practical wisdom. After discussing mindset and the realities of running a business for a decade, Matt issued a challenge: turn £1.00 into £5.00 in just two weeks.

The response was incredible. Some students washed cars, others sold items, but one young entrepreneur’s approach stood out. Armed with determination and a £10.00 investment from her grandmother, she set out to sell chocolate bars to her neighbors. Her boldness paid off, literally, as she turned her initial pound into an impressive £30.00 profit. Matt, impressed by her courage, gifted her an extra pound as a reward for her bravery.

But the entrepreneurial journey didn’t end there. Matt was invited back to Joseph Paxton School a week later to be a judge in their Business Enterprise Week. Alongside our Business Growth Manager, Emily, and fellow business owners, they evaluated student business ideas, marketing strategies, finances, and business plans. It was inspiring to see the creativity and determination of these young minds, and one student, in particular, caught their attention for going above and beyond to make their business stand out.
